Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions
ファイナルファンタジータクティクス 獅子戦争




Throughout history, wars repeat themselves in various times and places.
From these wars, legends of heroes are handed down from generation to
generation. Weathered by rumors and the passing of time, the truth may
be forgotten, the reality buried under the legends. 

Many years ago, a war seethed and erupted within the land of Ivalice.
It lasted for 50 years, finally ending when both sides laid down their arms.
However, the war had exhausted the people's strength and the country's
resources, and the situation within Ivalice gradually became worse. 

The lords of the six ruling families united to guide Ivalice back to
prosperity. However, their delicate balance of power soon collapsed. One
year after the 50-year war had ended, Ivalice's Princess Ovelia was
abducted. Prompted by this, conflict grew between two families: Gallione
(ruled by Prince Larg, whose crest was a White Lion) and Zeltennia
(ruled by Prince Goltana, whose crest was a Black Lion). The war between
the two families would later be known as "The Lion War". Added to the
backdrop of the Lion War was the problem of succession to Ivalice's
throne due to the sudden death of the king. Prince Larg is the elder
brother of the Queen Ruvelia. Prince Goltana
is the younger cousin of the dead King. According to historical record, a
young hero named Delita suppressed the Lion War soon after it engulfed
Ivalice. There was also another young man named Ramza who played a
role during the Lion War, though you will not see Ramza's name in any
history books. Now the true story can be told...
