I'm afraid the jury's still out on that one.
The land of Valisthea is studded with Mothercrystals—glittering mountains of crystal that tower over the realms around them, blessing them with aether. For generations, people have flocked to these beacons to take advantage of their blessing, using the aether to conjure magicks that let them live lives of comfort and plenty. Great powers have grown up around each Mothercrystal, and an uneasy peace has long reigned between them. Yet now the peace falters as the spread of the Blight threatens to destroy their dominions.Official description
Valisthea (ヴァリスゼア, Varisuzea?) is the setting of Final Fantasy XVI. A land home of the Mothercrystals, huge crystalline mountains that fill the surrounding lands with aether. Around each of the Mothercrystals great nations sprouted and eventually a precarious peace with them, until the Blight began encroaching the lands. Valisthea is divided into two main continents, the continent of Ash (灰の大陸, Hai no Tairiku?) in the east and the continent of Storm (風の大陸, Kaze no Tairiku?) on the west.
