FLARE is the Free/Libre Action Roleplaying Engine.
In the beginning of the game, the player gets to choose what race the in-game character should have. Each race has different abilities and skills (such as Strength, Health, Magic and Stealth). As the player completes missions and defeat enemies, the character will receive experience-points and level up. Leveling up will allow the player to improve skills and abilities of the character.
By completing missions and looting dead enemies, the player will collect gold. This can be used to purchase new equipment, weapons and armour at different traders.
The game was originally named OSARE, the game moved away from the moniker "open source" as Richard Stallman's precondition for support.
