Eternia, not to be confused with Ehernia.
GameSpot is reporting that the Tales of Eternia has begun. This will be Namco's first MMOG. Monty Python studios has raised issue with the carrying of the dead feature, claiming it infringes on their "Bring out your dead...." skit from "They Holy Grail":
"TOEO uses a symbol encounter system similar to the original TOE, wherein the player enters battle mode whenever he or she bumps into an enemy symbol that's moving around the field map. The players fight in real-time using the series' Linear Motion Battle System. Players can perform combination attacks if they execute moves in a certain order in an allotted time span. If the character dies in battle, TOEO's "piggyback system" lets characters carry around the deceased. If they make it to a church, the dead character can be resurrected with no experience penalities."
