The arrival of imperial envoys in the land of Doma was as unexpected as their stated purpose: to negotiate peace. Lord Hien, eager to secure the release of his conscripted countrymen, cautiously accepts the agreement, and arranges for a prisoner exchange. Yet even as Doma is poised to welcome the breaking dawn, the shadow of the fallen Zenos enfolds all in darkness and uncertainty.
South of Rabanastre, in a remote corner of the Valnard Sea gapes a fathomless maw that, for centuries, has slowly devoured the world around it: Ridorana. Whether you believe the cataract natural wonder or demon-torn gate to the very underworld, journeys to her edge should be made with the utmost caution, seeing as none who have stumbled into the darkness have ever returned to tell their tale. An ancient spire once used by the Dalmascans as a lighthouse rises defiantly above the churning waters to warn forethoughtful and foolhardy alike. It is into this spire that the transformed Ba'Gamnan has fled. It is into this hell that you must follow.
Chiseled into the great wall which cuts across the plains of Yanxia, between two of the Dairyu Moon Gates, is the visage of Ganen, the legendary hero who united Doma. The first king of the new kingdom was not only a military genius, but also the founder of geomancy, and so after his death this royal mausoleum became a holy place to which his disciples would make pilgrimage. Alas, following the imperial invasion, it was abandoned and fell into disrepair, yet circumstances now conspire to deliver the Warrior of Light unto these hallowed halls─but to what end?
The Four Lords─greatest of the auspices─once fought to defend the Ruby Sea and her people from calamitous forces. Though the Warrior of Light and his comrades managed to save the soul of Byakko, one of these ancient guardians, they are not yet ready to face the threat which looms on the horizon. And so the auspice Genbu considers a rather unorthodox training method...
The Namazu, despite their appetizing figures and weakness to tea, have survived the centuries to thrive within the walls and jars of Yuzuka Manor─until now. Now, they face a fate that would doom their tribe, one and all, to be wiped from the face of Hydaelyn! But one Namazu would yet stand against these forces of destruction. Boldly, proudly, he would stand between his brethren and certain annihilation. Yes, one noble Namazu would stand defiant...if he could only stand up.
Just as warriors temper their spirits in battle, so too does the wandering minstrel hone his craft through colorful retellings of heroic deeds. His rendition of your triumph over the Ultima Weapon takes the threads of history and weaves them into an epic tapestry. However, his ballad contains so many embellishments and fabrications that it bears little resemblance to your own tale, and you wonder if he was even listening to you. Nevertheless, you find yourself utterly captivated─whisked away to a battlefield that exists only in your mind's eye...
Kurenai has a dream. And to realize that dream, she needs custom deliveries. As a Disciple of the Hand or Land, you may contribute to her ambition to bring change to Sui-no-Sato. And who knows? If you do enough for her cause, she might even let you dress her up...
Having cast off the imperial yoke after twenty-five years, the people of Doma are free at last. A new day dawns...but it will be a day of work, for the enclave many call home remains a shadow of its former self. The Shazenkai, an organization formed to facilitate the reconstruction and revitalization of the settlement, is prepared to lead the way─but they will need to look to others if they are to succeed in this bold endeavor.
