Final Fantasy Unlimited
I've recently started watching the anime series Final_Fantasy_Unlimited and in it Fabula is the pseudo-narrator, providing vague insight on what's going to go on in that episode and what happened in the last. Immediately upon seeing her and her revealing her name, I noticed the link between FFXIII and this. Their character art is practically the same; in the episodes she's looking into the glass orb before debriefing us. Both her and this orb are shown in the logo for the Fabula Nova Crystallis series. Would it be notable to mention this in the article?
Because of one of todays retard, somehow history of the original page was lost...
- And if it helps the move of the page was in this order Fabula Nova Crystallis: Final Fantasy XII -> Fabula Nova Crystallis: Lame Name -> Lame Name MMLN メーマウリアン 08:54, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
What about those web novels? Are they included in the Fabula Nova Crystallis?Wikiguy 11:26, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
Fabula Nova Crystallis
Excuse me, "the new tale of the crystal"? Puh-lease! Surely it's far more likely to be "new crystal legend", given that that phrase crops up a few times in FFXIII. Fabula implies "fable", which is quite a bit more mystical than just "tale" -- Sorceror Nobody 08:31, May 18, 2010 (UTC)
In fact, it has been stated by the creators that the three Fabula Nova Crystalis games take place on the same very . While I know the games' setting is different, I doubt that their connection is similar to this of Final Fantasy I - III - V, which take place in different Universes completely. After all, so far, don't Final Fantasy games' Universes differ from number to number? They could probably exist in different planets, or whatsoever. --Ash Pokemaster June 26, 2010 (UTC)
- After some research, I found an official statement, which I added to the article. Adapt it as you consider best! --Ash Pokemaster 13:21, June 27, 2010 (UTC)
Do you think that a music track titled "Fabula Nova Crystallis" will appear in future games of the compilation, sort of as the central musical theme since it's already in FFXIII?
The fabula nova crystallis tpart of the Square conference
Did anyone translate it / spot it ? It was played roughly 35 minutes within the conference (before all Fabula Nova Crystallis trailers, i.e. XIII-2, Type-0 and Versus, and soon after duodecim), and all I could understand was that it explained the idendity of Etro, Pulse and a third god called Linse (リンセ); and two "superior" entities called Muin (ムイン) and Buuniberu (ブーニベル). If anyone could translate the rest, I'm sure it would greatly improve our knowledge of the Fabula myths.
I put a link to the full translation on the page yesterday.
Final Fantasy Type-0
I thought that a recent article stated that, after the name change, the creators decided that the game had no real connection to the Fabula Nova Crystallis series. So it was being taken out of the series, and is now a standalone game, with its own possible series in the make.
If this is true, shouldn't it be taken off this page?Johnlanigan 22:40, January 23, 2011 (UTC)
- The official FNC site still has it.Keltainentoukokuu 22:45, January 23, 2011 (UTC)
in the video of of the Fabula Nova Crystallis it was told that Lindzei and Pulse created fal'cie and l'cie before the first humans appear how is that possible?
the l'cie part is not mentioned in the article at all
- It is possible that the term l'Cie doesn't refer specifically to humans, only to any "lesser" entities than fal'Cie who have been given a Focus to fulfil. Because humans' entry into the world appears accidental rather than pre-planned, it was probably never intended for fal'Cie to transform humans into l'Cie. Then at some point they realised that they are able to do that, and so it led to what is seen in FFXIII.
- There is no information available of these original l'Cie talked of in the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology video, so they are not mentioned in the article. I'll try to work something in though, since they are still mentioned in it, so it would be within the scope of this article.Keltainentoukokuu 18:38, January 27, 2012 (UTC)EDIT: I mean the l'Cie article. :)Keltainentoukokuu 18:39, January 27, 2012 (UTC)
Gods' names localisation
In this page, it is written that the Chaos of the unseen world is a by product of the creation of the Fal'Cie. This is not described in the video so I wonder, where does it come from?
- I have been wondering it myself. It makes sense, but I don't recall it from originating from any official material. It appears though that "souls" of beings are meant to naturally flow from the visible world to invisible world and back again; creating immortal soulless beings like the fal'Cie that will never go to the invisible world when they die could make an imbalance, that when fal'Cie are born in the visible world then chaos is born in the invisible world. But like said, there is no official material to confirm this as far as I know.Keltainentoukokuu 04:06, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
According to the video, humans received a soul only once Etro gave them a part of Chaos so creating the Fal'Cie shouldn't change anything.
- I believe chaos was created as soon as Mwynn created the universe (we do have Gran Pulse and Oriense, remember that Cocoon in any form is artificial) or at least when Bhunivelze murdered her. Etro's "suicide" just opened her path to Valhalla.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 10:22, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
The part of the mythology is quite hazy, because it suggests there are many other beings than humans that are all part of the cycle, because everything was in place before the planet of Gran Pulse was even created, supposedly, so "souls" of some kind must have existed before Etro gave people pieces of chaos. The stories are all told from the humans' perspective though, and none of these other lifeforms and gods are ever seen, so the human aspect is the only thing that is explored. Chaos existed before Etro ever went to the Invisible World, and it is implied that it was chaos that completely killed Mwynn (she was overwhelmed by chaos and disappeared or something). Where it came from is not specified, but it appears to be something "unnatural" that perhaps wasn't originally part of the universe, because someone had to be set as the one who controls it, and both Etro and Mwynn came to this role by chance. It used to be Mwynn, but she passed it on to Etro who came up with a new plan to contain it, by introducing chaos as part of the cycle by giving some of it to humans.
I think the idea that chaos was born in the Invisible World because there was an imbalance between the number/quality of "souls" between the two worlds, is as good guess as any, but it probably shouldn't be in the article if it doesn't have any official origin. Problem is it's in quite a few articles by now, so I put off contesting it myself...Keltainentoukokuu 12:09, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
- I have removed the claim that chaos is the by-product of Bhunivelze creating fal'Cie in the Visible World from this article and the chaos article, but it may still persist in some other articles here.Keltainentoukokuu 12:32, April 2, 2012 (UTC)
Souls didn't exist before Etro gave Chaos to human kind according to the mythology. Mwynn could have created Chaos to take revenge on Bhunivelze. Besides this unbalance thing doesn't stand since the fal'Cie can die (Etro, the Cocoon fal'Cie,Anima, Dahaka and we don't know what happened to Pulse and Lindzei). I think of Chaos as a kind of anti matter or the black smoke from LOST (for the "will" to go out of the unseen world), something that has always been around, something we don't know much about.
