Final Fantasy 14 Plot

Final Fantasy XIV takes place in a make-believe world called Hydaelyn, mainly in a region named Eorzea. Eorzea has four major cities: Gridania in a dense forest, Ul'dah in a desert, Limsa Lominsa on an island, and Ishgard in snowy mountains. There's also a land bridge connecting Eorzea to two other continents, controlled by the powerful Garlean Empire. In addition to city-states, there are different groups like indigenous tribes, scholars in Sharlayan, and Ala Mhigo, a region taken over by the Garleans. Ishgard withdrew from the Eorzean Alliance due to Garlean threats, causing the Alliance to break. The Mor Dhona region was severely affected by a previous Garlean attack.

Eorzean history is divided into good times called "Astral" eras and bad times known as "Umbral" eras, caused by major Calamities. The First Umbral Era marked the end of the age of gods, when the Twelve, guardian deities, stopped interacting with mortals. The Allagan Empire in the Third Astral era reached high levels of technology, including space travel. The Sixth Astral Era was supposed to last forever, but five years ago, the Garleans caused the Seventh Umbral Calamity.

Garlean scientists turned the smaller moon Dalamud into a weapon in Project Meteor. Led by Legatus Nael van Darnus, they planned to crash Dalamud into Eorzea, wiping out all opposition. The Alliance gathered their armies and adventurers fought van Darnus, but they couldn't stop Dalamud. In the Battle of Carteneau Flats, Dalamud revealed itself as an ancient prison for the powerful dragon Bahamut. His escape triggered the Seventh Umbral Calamity. Louisoix Leveilleur tried to seal Bahamut, but failed. He sacrificed himself to weaken Bahamut and sent the adventurers forward in time to be of help when needed. Meanwhile, the Garlean Empire faced a crisis as their elderly Emperor Solus fell ill.
