I think the description box has no actual limits, apart from only supporting 2 lines (by default).
So you can fill out the box as you want. (the 2 line limit can be circumvented with line-breaks which some plugins provide)

But the amount of characters that can actually be shown in-game is limited by the size of the description window (so basically your game resolution)

and the font size of your text.

Good to know, that there are no limits, because I'm struggling with dilema how to handle descriptions, read them from text file or generate formatted text (MV's text tags) and paste it directly into description field.

Kind of sucks, I like long item descriptions, especially on unique stuff :3 Dragon Age sometimes have like a short stories on some of the gear :p I'd also like a description on parameters tbh but haven't found a way yet :)

I've decided to try and be more social and less nervous about engaging. I'm always over thinking things - from now on when I'm worried or don't get something I'll just ask.
Sometimes a mechanic that is meant to add challenge is just annoying. Even the Final Fantasy games did not completely escape this pitfall of design. (FF8 draw system I'm looking at you - grrrr)
starting working on the sprites for one of my games major antagonists finally. here's the first frame of his chanting motion in battle.
Have spent too much time hammering out with a friend just how to make a reoccurring enemy that permanently learns skills you use against her.
I know what I want in a loose sense. Maybe I should just make a post asking for opinions and suggestions.
