Patch4.01

Journal

  • Wedge wears the expression of a man at his wit's end.
  • In the course of their search for Omega, your friends at the Garlond Ironworks have come to Rhalgr's Reach. Apparently, however, they have since encountered some manner of problem which is hindering further progress. That you might grasp the nature of the problem in question, Wedge invites you to join him and Biggs at the workshop.
  • You learn to your surprise that Nero tol Scaeva has been offered employment at the Ironworks without prior approval from Cid, who is none too pleased. At length, he grudgingly agrees to tolerate his old rival's presence, and takes the opportunity to beseech your aid in the ongoing investigation into Omega. Moments later, an engineer rushes in with grave tidings: aetheric readings have risen alarmingly at the Yawn, where Omega is thought to be hiding. Fearing the worst, Cid resolves at once to visit the scene and asks that you accompany him.
  • As you stare at the pool of condensed aether that fills the Yawn, Midgardsormr stirs from his slumber to inform you that Omega does indeed await within. Then, without warning, a chocobo-like creature bursts out of the pool followed by an enormous, translucent serpent. Once the initial panic has passed, Midgardsormr explains that Omega is capable of bringing forth life, and that the serpent was one of its creations. All eyes duly turn to what appears to be an approximation of a chocobo, which has settled at the party's side.
  • Through Midgardsormr, the chocobo describes a strange plane beyond the Yawn. There, Omega appears to be testing its creations, and the only way to find out more is to venture in─by taking a plunge into the pink pool.
  • Together with your comrades, you jump into the Yawn and find yourself in a rift between dimensions. Shortly thereafter, Omega reaches out to you via one of its monitors and declares that you are to participate in an experiment. It seeks to determine the mightiest being by pitting subjects against one another in combat, to which end it has selected and recreated eighty-nine entities. You are provisionally assigned to the Alpha group, so named for your new chocobo friend, and your first task will be to fight your way to a place called the Deltascape. In so doing, you will prove your fitness to be fully fledged test subjects. ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • You win through to the egg-shaped Deltascape─one of many such structures floating in the rift─thereby confirming your status as test subjects... albeit the weakest of them all. Omega duly grants you time and space to prepare for your next trial: entering the Deltascape and defeating all the subjects within. After your host leaves, you and your companions set about establishing an improvised base of operations.
  • Having secured a foothold in the rift, the party turns its attention to the challenges that lie ahead. Whatever else stands between you and Omega, there seems little doubt that your combat skills will be tested to their limit... and perhaps beyond.

Objectives

  • Speak with Biggs.
  • Speak with Cid at the Yawn.
  • Speak with the chocobo.
  • Speak with Cid.
  • Speak with Cid.

Journal

  • Cid is eager to proceed with the investigation.
  • For want of a better option, you agree to do as Omega bade you and engage the test subjects inside the Deltascape. While you do battle within, your comrades will provide support without. You will not be entirely alone in there, however; as you will need to make use of Alpha's “existential authorization,” he will go with you into the test world. ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • Alpha stands ready to enter the Deltascape, and the portal beckons. If you have any final preparations, now would be the time to see to them. ※Deltascape V1.0 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • Inside the Deltascape, you come face-to-face with Alte Roite. The winged serpent falls upon you with a vengeance, but you stand your ground and ultimately emerge the victor.
  • Outside the Deltascape, your comrades compliment you on a battle well won. When Nero subsequently questions Omega's apparent obsession with determining the strongest being, Midgardsormr appears and explains that, having defeated Shinryu, it now seeks to create a mightier foe to fight. Fearing that the violence of such an encounter would be akin to another calamity, Cid is determined to stop Omega's plan. He duly grants Biggs and Wedge leave to investigate the stasis system in Carteneau, while he and Nero remain in the rift to aid you in the tests to come.

Objectives

  • Speak with Alpha.
  • Use the Duty Finder to enter Deltascape V1.0.
  • Speak with Cid.

A Catastrophe Waiting

Patch4.01

Journal

  • Cid seems keen to pit you against the next foe in the Deltascape.
  • In the event that Biggs and Wedge are unable to repair the stasis system at Carteneau, Cid believes the only way to prevent Omega from creating a new threat is to triumph in its tests. Accordingly, he is eager for you to return to the Deltascape. Nero's analysis reveals that your next foe is capable of manipulating gravity, and in order to counteract this power, he lends you an anti-gravity gimbal which he just happened to assemble. As before, Alpha will go with you into the test world, and grant you the use of his authorization. ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • Alpha stands ready to enter the Deltascape with you. With each enemy liable to be stronger than the last, you can never prepare too much before stepping through the portal and onto the stage of battle. ※Deltascape V2.0 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • Arriving in the Deltascape, you are confronted by Delta II, a gargantuan and grotesque creature known as Catastrophe. As expected, your foe employs the power of gravity against you, but with the help of Nero's contraption, you are able to weather the worst of its onslaught and emerge triumphant.
  • Nero welcomes you back with a look of smug self-satisfaction. Lest there be any doubt, he explains that the levitator functioned exactly as intended, and that it was not designed to allow you to descend of your own volition. At any rate, that is another mighty foe laid low, and you may turn your attention to the next.

Objectives

  • Speak with Alpha.
  • Use the Duty Finder to enter Deltascape V2.0.
  • Speak with Nero.

Patch4.01

Journal

  • Cid looks expectantly in your direction.
  • With Biggs and Wedge not expected to report back for some time, Cid proposes that you move ahead with the tests. Your next opponent, Delta III, is apparently a being known as Halicarnassus, which Nero reveals to be the antagonist from a tale dating back to the Fourth Astral Era. Hearing this, Cid expresses surprise at the thought that Omega is deriving its subjects from works of fiction, at which moment Midgardsormr manifests to provide some timely insight. Omega, the Father of Dragons explains, has no soul and is therefore incapable of imagination; be it from fact or fiction, it must draw upon historic material in order to create. While the revelation excites Nero, it gives Cid a moment's pause, but he sets his questions aside in favor of focusing on the task at hand: defeating Halicarnassus. As has now become traditional, Alpha is waiting patiently for your signal to proceed. ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • Alpha kwehs to you his readiness to enter the Deltascape. Once your own preparations are in order, you may step through the portal to do battle with Halicarnassus. ※Deltascape V3.0 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • In the Deltascape, you confront Halicarnassus, the flamboyant and formidable Queen of Dimension Castle. Yet all her pomp and pageantry avails her naught as you succeed in dethroning her, your victory and her demise a recreation of the ages-old tale.
  • With each new foe more dangerous than the last, Cid seems especially glad of your safe return. Thanks to your tireless efforts, but one test subject remains in the Deltascape. Take what rest you may, lest your next encounter prove a battle too far.

Objectives

  • Speak with Alpha.
  • Use the Duty Finder to enter Deltascape V3.0.
  • Speak with Cid.

Patch4.01

Journal

  • Cid is eager to tackle the Deltascape's final test subject.
  • Ahead of your battle with Subject Delta IV, Nero furnishes you with some much-needed intelligence. Your opponent is a being known as Exdeath, who commands the power of the void. Like Halicarnassus before him, he is apparently the defeated antagonist of an age-old folktale. It is at this moment that Cid finally gives voice to his earlier quandary: why did Omega choose the vanquished instead of the vanquishers? Before you can contemplate the question, Cid receives a call from Biggs and Wedge, who report that they have been unable to repair the stasis system. And so it is decided that you must continue with Omega's experiment, at least for the time being. As always, Alpha is ready to proceed when you are. ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • In but three kwehs, Alpha expresses his determination to settle matters in the Deltascape. Fixing your gaze upon the nearby portal, you gird yourself for the coming trial. ※Deltascape V4.0 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • Exdeath proves to be a fearsome foe, but following in the footsteps of the tale's heroes, you succeed in vanquishing him. In the wake of the battle, your comrades join you in the Deltascape, which is the Deltascape no more, having been summarily shut down by Omega, its purpose served. After congratulating you on your victory, your host bids you rest while you await the next call, and you are glad of the opportunity to leave the rift behind.
  • You find yourself back on the surface at the Yawn, your companions gathered nearby.
  • Cid thanks you for the pivotal role you have played in advancing the investigation. Though there are many and more battles to come, you have taken a momentous step towards solving the mystery that is Omega, and may now enjoy some well-earned respite.

Objectives

  • Speak with Alpha.
  • Use the Duty Finder to enter Deltascape V4.0.

Journal

  • Cid looks calmer for having reached a malmstone in the investigation.
  • Your party sets off for Rhalgr's Reach in high spirits, eager to recount recent events and enjoy a well-earned rest.
  • Back at the workshop, Cid receives a dressing down from Jessie for acting without due consultation and placing himself in mortal danger. The exasperated engineer subsequently notes the absence of Biggs and Wedge, who have apparently failed to return from their mission to Omega Control. Fearing that they may have encountered trouble, Cid resolves to look for them, and bids you join him at the airship landing in Gridania, where the Excelsior awaits.
  • Upon landing at the Carteneau Flats, Cid urges you to hurry on ahead to Omega Control while he moors the Excelsior. ※In the event that you leave Omega Control, you may re-enter by speaking with Cid at the Gridania airship landing.
  • Entering the control room, you are dismayed to find Biggs and Wedge sprawled on the floor, a slain fiend beside them. For a blessing, both are still alive, albeit in a bad way. The others soon join you, as does Omega via its communication system. It reveals that it was behind the attempt on the two engineers' lives, and threatens to kill innocent people unless you continue to participate in its experiment. Its objective: to study an anomaly known as heroes. Throughout history, it explains, otherwise unremarkable individuals have triumphed over vastly superior beings, just as you did in the Deltascape. Declaring itself “an enemy to all life upon this star,” Omega finally falls silent, leaving you to attend to your wounded friends.
  • Back at the airship landing in Gridania, Nero informs you that Biggs and Wedge have been placed in the care of the healers at the Conjurers' Guild. After declaring his intent to visit them, he bids you make for Rhalgr's Reach to apprise Jessie of all that has occurred.
  • Jessie is predictably shocked to hear the tidings from Carteneau. Though Biggs and Wedge will recover, Omega's threat looms large, and with little prospect of repairing its stasis system, Cid concludes that you have no choice but to obey its commands. Before long, you will be called to battle once more, and you fully intend to be ready.

Objectives

  • Speak with Jessie.
  • Speak with Cid in Gridania.
  • Investigate Omega Control.
  • Speak with Nero.
  • Speak with Jessie at Rhalgr's Reach.

  • Jessie greets you with a grave expression.
  • You learn from Jessie that a surge of anomalous energy has been detected at the Yawn. After concluding that this is Omega's way of summoning you back to the rift, you agree to meet Cid, Nero, and Alpha at the site.
  • You rendezvous with Cid and the others at the Yawn, and prepare for your next foray into Omega's perilous domain.
  • Omega once more sends you through a gauntlet of obstacles for the purpose of reevaluating your combat capabilities. Despite your success, however, the machine seems dissatisfied with your performance, and the ensuing exchange between Omega and Midgardsormr affords a glimpse into their antagonistic past. Cid will almost certainly have thoughts to share concerning these revelations. ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • You speak with Cid, and he declares your new base of operations in the rift ready for the trials ahead. The denizens of the “Sigmascape” await...

  • Cid is ready to discuss your foray into the Sigmascape.
  • Cid holds a brief strategy meeting prior to your first foray into the Sigmascape. Without a reference point within the test world, however, he reluctantly admits that he has nothing to share on the nature of the opponents you might face. Your only option is to go in blind. As before, Alpha will transfer his existential authorization to you just as soon as you have stepped into the unknown... ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • Alpha stands ready to enter the Sigmascape with you. With no way of knowing what lurks within, you can but check your gear and endeavor to be adaptable. ※Sigmascape V1.0 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • To the bemusement of all concerned, your arrival in the Sigmascape is greeted by a homicidal train... or perhaps the ghost of one. Despite the somewhat unusual nature of your opponent, you set about your task in earnest, and eventually succeed in derailing its murderous ambitions.
  • You have returned to your base of operations in the rift. Speak with Cid, and discuss the aftermath of your phantom encounter.
  • Cid welcomes you back, full of praise for your adaptability in battle. While pleased that you now have a solid point of reference within the Sigmascape, he is nonetheless unable to say with any certainty if the test world is the recreation of a distant realm or a work of pure fiction.

  • Cid wishes to discuss your next opponent.
  • After Cid describes the nature of your next opponent, Nero presents you with a new invention designed to aid in its defeat─the Chocobo Brush. Though he leaves you none the wiser about how it actually works, you gather that the brush will allow you to directly influence the world in which you find yourself. Speak with the waiting Alpha to begin the next stage of Omega's experiment. ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • Alpha stands ready to enter the Sigmascape with you. Keep a tight grip on the Chocobo Brush, and prepare to battle the haunting Chadarnook! ※Sigmascape V2.0 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have defeated the possessed painting. Return to the Interdimensional Rift and speak with Cid.
  • You recount your victory to your waiting companions, and Nero appears particularly pleased with the efficacy of his invention. He is in the midst of warning you about the brush's decidedly limited range of alternative applications when Cid receives a linkpearl communication from Jessie. It seems that Biggs and Wedge have slipped away from their sickbeds, intent on returning to the Yawn...
  • Outside the rift once more, you meet with an anxious Biggs and Wedge. Cid reassures them that, despite some minor difficulties, you have managed to overcome each of Omega's challenges thus far. The two engineers duly pledge their unswerving support, and you cannot help but feel buoyed by their infectious enthusiasm.

Objectives

  • Speak with Alpha.
  • Use the Duty Finder to enter Sigmascape V2.0.

  • You arrive at base camp to find Nero sickly and irritable. Cid duly takes it upon himself to brief you on your third opponent, theorizing that the next battle should be far less complicated than the last.

  • After complimenting you on your talent for avoiding giant lasers, Cid expresses regret that you could not have encountered the wonders recreated in the Sigmascape under happier circumstances. But as the final battle of this test world looms ever closer, there seems little point in entertaining such thoughts...

  • Nero seems unusually anxious to move things along.
  • Together, Nero and Cid present a profile of your final opponent in the Sigmascape─a magic-using jester by the name of “Kefka.” According to their research, the mage is wont to confound his opponents with subtle feints. Accordingly, Nero has adjusted his monitor to give him an unusually clear view of the battle, and will attempt to warn you of impending deceptions. Speak with Alpha to put Nero's strategy to the test. ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • Alpha stands ready to enter the Sigmascape with you. Keep your eyes open and your mind sharp, for it is time to do battle with the illusive Kefka! ※Sigmascape V4.0 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have defeated Kefka, a victory which should signal the end of your struggles within the Sigmascape. It is time to leave and return to the Fringes.
  • After descending to congratulate you on your triumph, Omega proceeds to deliver its theory on the secret of your inexplicable combat potential. You are, it contends, subconsciously restricting your own performance save when placed in mortal danger. As such, unlocking your “true” capabilities should logically be a matter of threatening you with death...
    Before you know what is happening, you find yourself trapped in a prism of energy, with scant moments to live. But just when all seems lost, Midgardsormr uses the last of his strength to assume his original form, and intervenes to rescue you from an untimely end. The Father of Dragons then fades into slumber, satisfied that his guidance is no longer required...
    
    You are still reeling from your ordeal when Cid arrives, yelling about Nero. But at the sight of you, he bites his tongue, and bids you make a swift exit to the lip of the Yawn.
  • You return to the outside world to learn that Nero has been transported to Rhalgr's Reach having collapsed. Make your own way back to the settlement, and call on the waiting Jessie.
  • As you are speaking with Jessie, a weary Cid approaches bearing the news that Nero will be incapacitated for some time. Even as exhaustion and injury begin to take their toll on your companions, it is plain that Omega's trials will only become more dangerous. You have little choice therefore but to take Cid's exhortations to heart, and temper body and mind to withstand whatever monstrous opponents Omega has in store for you next.
