“A long lived peace…
is at an end.”
September 12, 2011: Hold on. Am I supposed to die right off the bat?
Yes. FFII opens with four young people (Firion, Guy, Maria, and her brother Leon) trying to fend off Palamecian Black Knights.
The Empire of Palamecia, led by their Emperor, is trying to take over the world. The Empire killed these four protagonists’ parents.
At the outset of the game, you are thrust into a hopeless battle against the Black Knights, who leave you for dead.
