About FINAL FANTASY XII: REVENANT WINGS
AN AGE WHEN MAGICK WAS COMMONPLACE AND AIRSHIPS PLIED THE SKIES…
“Purvama, the floating lands. In the border-skies they wait. Untrodden, unknown.”
So the legend went. And the children who heard it turned their eyes to the skies, and dreamed. The Cache of Glabados is the key, throwing wide the doors of fading memory.
There, above, an all but forgotten land– demesne of the winged ones.
