Exploring Ivalice - With Fran

Hello EoFF, how are you doing on this fine day? I'm doing well myself, thanks for asking. Why am I doing so well? Because my partner-in-crime and I have been enjoying some Final Fantasy XII. Taking in the sights and exploring every crack and crevasse of Ivalice. We're not too far in just yet, but I would like to share some of our favourite scenes and locations with the rest of you!

Remember when Fran and Balthier first joined? We sure do! What we see here is the Garamsythe Waterway. Vaan is showing off his fresh steal! The Waterway, predictably, had a lot of water in it.

But things weren't all fun and games and wouldn't you know it, we were captured! Here we are under the Nalbina Fortress, rotting in the undeground dungeon/prison. It was very dirty and there was a lot of sand on the floor, seeping in from the ground above.

We did manage to escape and went on to meet some people and make some allies, but it wasn't long before we found ourselves back in chains! Don't worry, we manage to wiggle our way out of this mess too!

Eventually we managed to escape another bad situation and we found ourselves on Fran and Balthier's airship! It's quite stylish, don't you think?

After doing some more adventuring, we decide it's time to head to Jahara and learn more about some of the happenings. If you can't trust odd looking face masked horn people, who can you trust? Here we get to sit in on a meeting between our group as they make a plan of action!

We did eventually reach Jahara, although it wasn't as much help as we were expecting. But it was a rather interesting looking village, and we got to see the previously visited Giza Plains in the rain. Here we see Basch in the Jahara Village.

Sadly, our good friend Fran (she isn't shown much here but she's the Viera) has to go home and face some things, so we traveled to the beautiful Eruyt Village. It's deep in the forest and as you can see, it has some very beautiful and interesting architecture.

I know you're sad we had to leave such a beautiful place, but no worries, we ended up coming back once again!


We're now looking forward to much more of our FFXII journey and we can't wait to see what other beautiful locations the game has in store for us. We have played the game before, but it's been a while and it's always fun to rediscover some beauties. So what were some of your favourite Ivalice areas? Feel free to share them below!

Ah, Ivalice and its majestic landscape. All those... hills and valleys.

That certainly didn't start in 10-2.

It's getting high since FFX-2, because fanservice there was pretty high and in the next entries became higher and higher, that's what I'm trying to say! :P

FF12 had fran, but what did FF13 and 13-2 have in terms of fan service that we couldn't also find in 10 and 7, or even 9?

Ah yes, the Lightning boob jiggle.

But FFVIII had Selphie showing off her panties, and don't forget Shova. Also, I know SOME people were upset about Terra being naked in her esper form.

Lightning return doesn't exist.

Still, my question stands.

Ah yes, the Lightning boob jiggle.
It must have been one of the least obvious boob jiggles out there. I never really noticed it at all. Did anyone else?

But yeah, I was never a massive fan of butts so I suppose that helps to explain why I was never a massive fan of Fran. :p Her character wasn't bad, thankfully, but the design, urgh.

My question wasn't about LR. I'm asking in what way the series is significantly more fanservicy after 12 than before. Some games have a bit of fanservice, others do not. I don't see any steady rise in fanservice level.

It's just me. XD But still, Fanservice in FFXII is damn high! :P

At least there's equal opportunity fanservice, as with everything with Akihiko Yoshida as the lead artist in it ;)
