Final Fantasy XI - The Chains that Bind Us
Continuing tonight - Final Fantasy XI: The Chains of Promathia.
Last time, we learned that Esha'ntarl is, in fact, Cardinal Mildaurion, and that Prishe was born the Keeper of the Apocalypse, but in a ritual meant to cleanse the darkness from her, something went wrong, and her age was frozen, though her darkness was sealed in a piece of magicite. While the heroes sought to learn the location of Al'taieu, the Celestial Capital, Esha'ntarl prepared the Jeunoan fleet to launch a surprise attack on Bahamut.
When their search turned up little useful information, the heroes met with Cid, and took his newly-completed airship to meet with the fleet...where they found Prishe had stowed away, and was in trouble. They proceeded to board the other airships trying to find her, encountering several mammets, and two enormous Zilart automatons, Ultima and Omega, created and controlled by Nag'molada. After being defeated, Nag'molada summoned Bahamut directly to them, ruining the surprise attack.
However, Prishe took this opportunity to try to surrender herself to Bahamut, that he would destroy the Keeper of the Apocalypse, and summon Promathia with such power assembled so that he may be defeated once and for all. Bahamut, though, had other ideas — Eha'ntarl's ritual years ago had succeeded, and she was no longer the Keeper; and he scoffed that mortals thought they had the power to defeat the Twilight God, or even the true Keeper.
But fearing that the meddling of these mortals will unleash doom on the world, Bahamut attacks the airship. Tenzen tries to counter his attack with Phoenix while everybody escapes. A bright flash washes everything in white...and we awake once again in Lufaise Meadows, the three Chebukkis unconscious nearby.
Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we continue our adventure in Vana'diel!
