Final Fantasy XI - The British are Leaving!


Last time on Throne of Games, Nag'molada released the avatar of Promathia, seduced by his promises of knowing the ultimate Truth. But we were able to defeat him, and his material form was banished by the tears of the Goddess. The apocalypse was cancelled.

However, we couldn't trigger the final cutscenes without waiting until Japanese midnight — a trick they used to employ frequently to prevent people from just plowing straight through the story missions.

So tonight at 9pm ET, we will be watching the conclusion of Final Fantasy XI: The Chains of Promathia, and then taking a step backward and doing Rise of the Zilart, the game's first expansion.

Also, tonight will be Chris's last live "in studio" appearance on the show, as he is moving away to New York to pursue an acting career. We're gonna miss him, and we wish him all the luck in his endeavors. But don't worry, viewers — he'll still be joining us for more Final Fantasy XI in the future! You just won't be seeing his face...at least, not on Throne of Games. Here's to seeing it elsewhere, though!

Final Fantasy XI - The Gift of the Twilight God


Last time on Throne of Games, we caught up with Nag'molada in the Chamber of Eventide, where we learned that Selh'teus had died to destroy the Emptiness within him, but was given life again by Phoenix...and his Emptiness found another vessel. To seal this away, Yve'noile gave her life to bind this very incarnation of Promathia within the audience chamber of the Palace of Hu'Xzoi.

Selh'teus then directs us to the five towers of the Garden of Ru'Hmet, where the Chains of Promathia that weigh on the Children of Altana may be purged from our souls: the Apathy of the Hume, the Envy of the Mithra, the Cowardice of the Tarutaru, the Arrogance of the Elvaan, the Rage of the Galka.

The rest of the session was spent navigating the Garden. It's pretty big.

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we proceed into the inner reaches of the Garden of Ru'Hmet in Final Fantasy XI: The Chains of Promathia on Throne of Games!
