F.AR.M. stands for Fantasy Arms Merchant. It is a game designed to poke some good-natured fun at some of the more ridiculous trends in RPG computer games. There are two staples of CRPGs that are being mocked. One is the grind, which can be found in almost every single blasted RPG out there. The other is this strange fascination with Damage Per Second that occurs in games that are suppose to be about role playing not roll playing.
