Silva Saga 2
Although this game shares similarities with the Dragon Quest series, there are some noticeable differences. That being the mercenary and idol battle system. In the game, the player is given the chance to buy mercenaries (up to four) and find idols (up to four as well) to add to your party. In battle, the player is allowed to trade out the main party to bring in the mercenary party or idol party. The mercenary party cannot use spells but are very strong offensively and defensively. Unlike the mercenary party, idols are weak in both offense and defense but are very powerful with magic. Both parties cannot be controlled manually by the player.
