    Final Fantasy XII

    The death of Lord Rasler Helos Nabradia was but one of many tragedies to befall the Kingdom of Dalmasca.

    The air of hope that had surrounded Her Royal Highness Princess Ashe's Wedding was now quite lost: Dalmasca had been set adrift, at the mercy of history's restless tides.

    At this time, the great empires struggled for dominion over Ivalice: Archadia in the east, and Rozarria, the west. The invasion of the kingdom of Nabradia was Archadia's first step in its westward march.

    With Lord Rasler's beloved homeland consumed by the hell-fires of war, it seemed clear that Archadia would soon mete out a like fate to Dalmasca. The fall of the fortress at Nalbina tolled the destruction of the greater part of Dalmasca's forces.

    A counter-attack was mounted by the order of the Knights of Dalmasca, ever brave and faithful, but against the martial might of the Archadian armies, they stood little chance of victory.

    Indeed, their defeat was to be absolute.

    Soon thereafter, Archadia came forward offering terms of peace. Or, as one might rather put it, terms of Dalmasca's surrender.

    Lord Raminas, King of Dalmasca--and my dear friend--had no choice but to accept these terms. It was, thus, only with reluctance that he set out for Nalbina fortress--now under Archadian occupation--to affix his seal to the Emperor's treaty of peace.

    The King had scarce departed his royal city of Rabanastre when the remnants of the Order made their return. And not a moment too soon, for a terrible revelation awaited them.

    The treaty would be signed with steel and writ in royal blood.

    What floor did you get to in trial mode?

    Thread Starter: Jarvio

    I gave trial mode a go after beating the main game. I never planned to beat all 100 floors, but I was curious as to how far I'd get.

    I finally

    People seem to have all but forgotten about this game. For some reason I never got around to playing this one, but I gathered that the reviews were decent.

    Did you know you would lose control of Reks fairly quickly?

    I can imagine someone who went into the game blind 11 years ago seeing it as

    Anyone know what the floating triangles are in Mt Bur-Omisace?

    They're like monuments scattered throughout the town. Literally just stone

    Has your opinion of this game changed since 2006

    Thread Starter: LunarWeaver

    You know, for those playing The Zodiac Age.

    I always liked it, but now I'm loving it. I don't know if it's a change in me or the game.

    FFXII is a good game with a good story but this is something that holds true for every Final Fantasy with the notable exception of VII. VII features
