I hope everyone remembers to keep the log going!
The Logbook is a feature in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings which acts as a sort of in-game journal, where the members of Clan Galbana post several thoughts and opinions throughout their journey, as encouraged by Penelo.

First[edit | edit source]
Well, I guess I'll go first. Here we are on a sky continent, and nobody knows what we'll find. It's pretty exciting! I just hope everyone remembers to keep the log going!
First Encounter[edit | edit source]
No Manners[edit | edit source]
That aegyl is so rude! Never says "hello", never says "thanks"...never says anything! What trouble did we cause to deserve this?
You cause trouble in your own way, Filo. Just kidding! Don't be mad.
Bored[edit | edit source]
Kytes certainly didn't mince words.
Well, today I'm looking after the ship while everyone's away. Ba'Gamnan's restless as usual... I could use a way to pass the time.
Eureka![edit | edit source]
I think I've found the answer to our Ba'Gamnan trouble. I don't want to say any more until I'm sure. After tonight we'll know, one way or the other.
Ba'Gamnan's Bane[edit | edit source]
Tomaj told me how it works, but I still don't trust it. I just hope Ba'Gamnan doesn't break free in the middle of the night and come for me... It's kinda scary in my room all alone. Maybe I can stay at Penelo's?
Log Check[edit | edit source]
I'm sure you'll be fine on your own, Kytes. Llyud, this log is for the entire crew, which you're now a member of, so write something when you have the time. That goes for you too, Vaan. Don't tell me you're too busy captaining to scribble something down!
Captain's First Log[edit | edit source]
Happy now? I'm writing! I don't think a log check should count as your entry. What am I supposed to write? "Isle of Megalith ahoy! Rudders full to port!"?
Clouds Below[edit | edit source]
Rescued fellows from attack. In pursuit of sky pirates. We make for the Fane. May the clouds be below us.
That's it?[edit | edit source]
Is that all you can say, Llyud? There has to be something more you could write. We are your friends after all.
Grand Opening[edit | edit source]
No need to bicker! If I don't see you at the grand opening of my shop, then we'll have something to argue about. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this... not literally, of course.
Security[edit | edit source]
When Vaan let us into the shrine, the Auralith was out in the open, just asking to be stolen. The aegyl sure are trusting.
An East Wind[edit | edit source]
Strong winds worry at my wings in spite of fair weather today. I know of no aegyl who would steal as sky pirates do.
Memories[edit | edit source]
Preparations[edit | edit source]
Business has been brisk, and I've thought of a good use we can put the sky saloon to. I've also taken in a stray Yarhi. I think there may even be a place for it in my plans.
Master Artificer[edit | edit source]
Master Tomaj, I must object to you calling me "it". I am a master artificer, and you cannot expect to receive my services if I am not treated with the proper respect.
Cu Sith, Master Artificer
Worried[edit | edit source]
So are we going to fight the Judge of Wings? The one Balthier couldn't even beat?
I'd give Balthier a little more credit. Wouldn't you agree, Vaan?
The Leading Man[edit | edit source]
It'll take more than that to stop Balthier. Something bad always happens to the leading man, in the first act, but everything gets straightened out by the end. I'm sure he's already off hunting treasure. He'll turn up before we have a chance to miss him.
Comeuppance[edit | edit source]
I almost feel bad for Ba'Gamnan. Even those other bangaa he's always with don't want anything to with him. But that's what he gets for terrorizing people all the time.
Unappreciated[edit | edit source]
Does nobody appreciate all I've done? The shops in the sky saloon, the notice board- I'd have to say I've done pretty well. Because no one else will say it for me!
I appreciate you, Master Tomaj.
Cu Sith, Master Artificer
A Hard Bargain[edit | edit source]
I'm full of hidden talents. Maybe I'll teach you someday, Penelo.
Lucky for Filo, Rikken's not as cutthroat as he looks.
Hmph![edit | edit source]
I didn't hear Kytes saving us hundreds of thousands of gil. It's not my fault Rikken can't win at his own game!
Like Phon Coast[edit | edit source]
Now, now. Play nice. I can see why so many people came to the skysea. The water's beautiful! Don't you wish you could just jump right in?
Like a Shark[edit | edit source]
I'll have you know I'm an excellent swimmer.
Like a Dog[edit | edit source]
I can dog paddle!
Like the Idea[edit | edit source]
I'm always up for a swim.
Like Solid Ground![edit | edit source]
Well, if you asked me and nobody did, by the way, I think we have much bigger things to worry about! Besides, not everyone can swim, you know.
Like Sky Pirates![edit | edit source]
Filo's right. We have work to do!
How did this come up again?
So, we're not going?
You tell 'em, Penelo!
Clear Skies[edit | edit source]
All is clear. Rescued Rikken once again. Tomaj reports a sighting of the Judge of Wings. Course is set for Yapih Caverns. One thing puzzles me. Why would one want to submerge one's self in water?
Passing Time[edit | edit source]
Don't knock it until you've tried it! Anyway, here I am stuck on the ship while everyone's away again. The shops are stocked, the decks are tidy, and there's nothing for the notice board. I think I'll take Cu Sith out for a stroll. Nice day for it.
Despicable[edit | edit source]
Of all the underhanded treachery! That spineless snake Ba'Gamnan thinks he can get back at us by taking Filo? Mark my words- he'll pay for this! Make him pay for this, Vaan!
Insecure[edit | edit source]
I barely remember being taken, but now that I'm back on the ship I'm sort of scared. Not so much of Ba'Gamnan as the Judge of Wings. But everything'll be fine, right, Vaan?
Smooth Sailing[edit | edit source]
Turns out Rikken was sitting on a goldmine! And now I know just where to go and just what to do! I just don't know why the ship is shaking...
Marooned[edit | edit source]
I have to admit, keeping a log is more fun then I thought it would be. Vaan doesn't seem to be enjoying himself, though. He'd better snap out of it before Penelo snaps him out.
Dry Dock[edit | edit source]
The aegyl are surprisingly good with their hands, and the repairs have gone smoothly. Unfortunately, even with the repairs done the ship won't budge. She's as stubborn as her captain.
State of Mind[edit | edit source]
Well, the captain may be sinking but the ship should be soaring soon enough. And not a moment too soon. People are starting to go a little stir-crazy, if you ask me.
Shipshape[edit | edit source]
I went outside to announce the repairs were done to a decidedly muted reception. How did it come to this? I never really liked Velis, but I can't stand to see Penelo crying. Time to take matters into my own hands.
Found it![edit | edit source]
out Tomaj had the Log the whole time.
I say we let him write the whole thing!
Do your own dirty work!
On Balthier's Trail[edit | edit source]
It's such a relief knowing Fran's alright But what's Balthier doing in the mountains? I guess we'll find out when we catch up with him. The sooner the better.
Gone Too Far[edit | edit source]
I can't believe the scoundrel had the nerve to try to kidnap Fran! It's time I teach Ba'Gamnan a lesson he won't forget!
Dark Clouds[edit | edit source]
Storms rage around the Pillar of Heaven. Fran is safe and in our number. Never have I spoken to a viera before, but they share much in common with aegyl. Still, there is something very different about her. Perhaps it is her anima?
Mist[edit | edit source]
Sounds like Fran doesn't make any more sense to you then she does to us, Llyud. Don't get me wrong though. I like having her around. I hope she decides to stay.
Planning the Plan[edit | edit source]
I couldn't agree more, Kytes! All we need is a plan to convince her to stick around... You'll think of something!
I'll think of something? Umm, I don't know about that...
Executing the Plan[edit | edit source]
Well, I thought about it, but Fran just doesn't seem like she'll fall for flowers or that sort of thing. Maybe Cu Sith could make her something special.
Canceling the Plan[edit | edit source]
Bad news. Apparently, Cu Sith can't make anything besides weapons. When I asked about those mementos she's been making she just squinted her eyes at me. So much for the plan.
Missing![edit | edit source]
There were tremors in the mountains and nobody's returned since. I searched the caves but couldn't find anyone, and before I knew it the Strahl was gone. I hope for the best but somehow I doubt everyone just got lost...
Searching[edit | edit source]
I'm starting to get worried. I questioned sky pirates, the aegyl, and even had Cu Sith ask the Yarhi, but no one knows where everyone's gone. It's as if they vanished into thin air. But they have to be somewhere...
Wondering[edit | edit source]
If this is a joke, I'm not laughing. I know they're out there. Somewhere. Will search again tomorrow.
You mustn't exhaust yourself so, Master Tomaj. They'll be back before you know it.
Cu Sith, Master Artificer
Hope[edit | edit source]
I saw Fran and Balthier today. They tell me everyone's alive and well, and that I need only stay put and wait for them to return. I'm too tired to go anywhere, anyway.
Back Onboard[edit | edit source]
Sorry for the scare we gave you, Tomaj. I thought you'd give up on us and be halfway back to Ivalice by now. Well looks like Clan Galbana is back together!
A North Wind[edit | edit source]
Clouds sail Serenely past, but the wind is chill. Warriors I once called ally were among the party that attacked the ship. Had I not met you, I would be as they. I shudder at the thought.
I can hardly believe Vaan and Penelo are really friends with the Queen! You told us before, and I believed you, but I don't think it really sunk in until now. I wouldn't want to be on the Queen's bad side. She'd probably throw me in a dungeon!
The Emperor[edit | edit source]
I can't believe we're going to see Larsa! If only it were under better circumstances. I almost feel guilty being happy over it.
Don't. I'm sure he'll be happy to see you, too.
I paid a visit to Rabanastre while Vaan and the others were down in Giza. Migelo was worried about everyone, naturally, but he seemed to relax a bit once I told him what had been going on. At least he gave me a warmer welcome than I got in the Sandsea...
True Captain[edit | edit source]
To be honest I never thought much of Basch from what I'd heard about the war and the Empire. Now I realize that everything he does is to protect others. One day, I'm going to be like him.
A Calm[edit | edit source]
We have passed below the veil of clouds and come to Glabados Ruins, a place build for the children of Feolthanos. We aegyl are not without family, but we do not share the bond that you do. Our lives are short. What might those lives be like with such bonds?
Inferno[edit | edit source]
When I first heard there were people living on the volcano, I couldn't believe my ears. I can only imagine how reclusive the ancient viera must have been to choose such a place. How could anyone live like this?
Regrets[edit | edit source]
I keep wondering what I could have done to save Mydia. But there's no time for that now. We have a promise to keep.
Falling Stars[edit | edit source]
We breached the Mist-bound gate. I have seen the hatred of my ancestors held against each other play out before me. I have not known war, but I see its sadness and hatred, and I know I must bring it to an end.
Being a Sky Pirate[edit | edit source]
I think I finally see what Penelo wanted us to understand. Being a sky pirate isn't about treasure. It's about being free, and doing what you think is right. Right now that means saving Llyud, whatever it takes!
Last Minute[edit | edit source]
This is what we've all been waiting for. If you're not ready now, you never will be. You are ready, aren't you? Once this is all over, maybe I'll go into business for myself. Lots to be done before then, though!
Looking Back[edit | edit source]
I know it's a little late to bring this up, but I hope I've been a good captain. Our time in Lemurés has had its ups and downs, but I hope someday we'll look back on it and smile.
We're Behind You[edit | edit source]
We who cannot be with you in body will be with you in spirit! Nono will keep the ship in shape, Lord Larsa will watch over Ivalice, and of course, Master Tomaj and I will be waiting for your safe return. Don't make us wait long!
Cu Sith, Master Artificer
Blank Page[edit | edit source]
So you've reached Feolthanos. There's not much left to write. The rest is up to you. I'm leaving the last page of the log blank, for when you come back.
