The land of Ivalice. The city of Dalmasca. In the midst of the happy occasion

of Lady Ashe of the Kingdom of Dalmasca and Lord Rasler of the Kindgom of

Nabradia's wedding, Nabudis, the capital of Nabradia, falls to the Archadian

empire in their quest for dominance. Out of fear that Dalmasca is next, King

Raminas sends Basch and Lord Rasler to lead a defense force at the fortress of

Nalbina. Lord Rasler falls in combat and is mortally wounded. Rasler is

carried back to Dalmasca and laid to rest along with the hope of the

surrounding region. King Raminas gives in to the demands of the Archadian army

and travels to Nalbina to sign a treaty.



And so a brand new chapter of Final Fantasy opens as you take control of a

young soldier named Reks, and move onward to a group of freedom fighters that

will help to decide the fate of Dalmasca and of the Archadian empire itself. A

story full of power-hungry betrayal, tragedy, honor, and revenge is about to

revolve around a princess that has lost her kingdom but is still trying to find

the means to restore it. What aid will she seek to satisfy her goals? Does

she only fight for revenge? What drives her? Will she be content with her

decision? All those questions will be answered as she journies the world of

Ivalice with her newfound companions.
