Final Fantasy Wiki

Istory, also known as Easterly, is a town in Final Fantasy V located on the northwest part of the world map close to Istory Falls. It is a place native to Bartz's world. It is a valuable town to visit to gain some new abilities.

In the merged world, Istory becomes inaccessible due to storyline reasons.


Istory Falls used to be accessible from Istory via a road, but an earthquake blocked off the path to the falls.[1] Bartz Klauser and the party visited the forest near Istory to fight Ramuh.

In the merged world, Exdeath pulled Istory into the Void, along with many other places.


The village of Istory on the world map.

Istory is located on the northwest part of the western continent. It is close to a forest with a river running through, and a bridge must be crossed to reach the town on the west side of the forest. To the east of Istory is the Istory Falls, inaccessible due to mountains blocking the way.

Istory is a farming town, home to a large pen with sheep, with several residents being shepherds.[1] A small river runs through the town, and the town is surrounded by forests.

A toad in Istory.

In the northwest part of town, there is a garden with eight flowers. If the player walks on them and stops at the southeastern flower, a toad will pop out of the ground and drop the Black Magic spell Toad.

There is a sheep in the northeast part of town. If the player stands behind it and interacts with it, the sheep will kick the player, sending him flying next to a bard. If the player talks to him, they will learn Romeo's Ballad.

The summon Ramuh can be obtained from a forest outside Istory, where he is fought as a random encounter in Bartz's world.

Musical themes[]

Like in many different towns, "Harvest" (ハーヴェスト, Hāvesuto?) plays in Istory.
