The Rising 2016
It was in the year 1572 of the Sixth Astral Era. A terrible catastrophe known as the Calamity threatened to bring untold destruction to Eorzea.
At the same time, the Garlean Empire overran the Carteneau Flats. The three great city-states formed a grand alliance, that they might repel the aggressors and see their people through these dark times.
Among the many who fought that day was a warrior whose noble deeds gave others the courage to carry on. A warrior who was willing to sacrifice herself to save the many.
A Warrior of Light.
Garlean General: “Proud sons and daughters of Garlemald! We shall purge this land of its blight! But first, let us crush its pathetic army under the heels of our boots!”
The two armies clashed under the specter of the sanguine moon. The Warrior of Light led a band of hardened adventurers into the desperate melee, trying to stem the tide of the relentless onslaught.
They fought on until flagging and weary. The moon of Dalamud waxed ever fuller, at last bursting open to reveal the terrifying truth of what slumbered inside.
