Faria: A World of Mystery and Danger is an action role playing game developed by Game Arts and Hi-Score, and published by Nexoft in 1990 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It has many of the same action-RPG elements from RPGs like Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series, and Crystalis by SNK, while also featuring some turn-based elements akin to the features of The Magic of Scheherazade by Culture Brain using experience points while mostly engaging real-time combat.
The player controls a female character with no official name, referred just as a "Soldier" in the introduction. She wakes up within a township named Ehdo and the first quest is to rescue the kidnapped princess from an evil wizard.
