I have some questions then.
Erpy: Carry-over between games is usually rather limited. Between the first and the second game, the protagonist's level carried over IF it was between 35 and 40. (otherwise, it would be set to those values) All the other party members later join at set levels. Depending on your final rank at the end of the first game, you get a couple of items at the start of the second game and if you completed certain quests, the npcs you helped will remember you and if you help them again in the second game they'll sometimes give you bonus items because you've helped them multiple times.
How random are level-ups? When characters level up, do they gain random amount of stats or fixed amount?
Are there any permanent stat boosts? If they are, do they transfer in some way (as items, or as already applied bonus)?
