In the beginning, Maenads had nothing. Their bodies ached and their hearts held nothing but hatred. They fought endlessly, yet death never came. Despaired, trapped within eternal quagmire. A soulless Maenad offered a serpent to the Sunshard and prayed for salvation. A soulful Maenad offered a reed to the Sunshard and asked for joy. A Maenad, born from these two, felt pity for the despair that had overran the Earth. They named the Maenad, Dykstra, God of the Sun. Dykstra made time, and divided it into day and night. Dykstra outlined the road to salvation, and gave Maenads joy. And Dykstra took endless time away from the Maenads. Dykstra created beings to lead Maenads in obedience to her. The Dark God, Maenhanoj, the Holy god, Rydia; many gods and demons. Finally, Dykstra set out to create Paradise; where Maenads would be joyful just by being there. But then, Dykstra's strength ran out, and she collapsed. All the Maenads grieved over this unfortunate event, yet Dykstra breathed her last. She returned to the dust, promising to return again. So the Sun God hasn't been lost. We must offer our prayers and not forget our faith. We wait and hope for the day, when the path to paradise will be reopened.
Due to the failure of unfulfilled conditions, the phenomenon sent through a full circle and forced to, once again, relive through the world of Gaia; abstracting the previous souls once before, until the right conditions are fulfilled. There is one person, ought most forgotten during their first event, who's seen it all too many times. They must wait until the elevator secretes; and find the lost soul assumed to be forever trapped there otherwise, in the world of Gaia.
*Viewing CGI:
New CGI movies oringially from the mod, in the game, can also be viewed on the RENDERS page.
If you prefer to stay traditional FF9, this is not a suitable choice. There are many changes in this mod.
The only original FF9 character here is Vivi.
*Texture Mod on models
Before you begin, I know about how I did the texture mod on the characters here. Yes, I did it on purpose, and it's a temporary do until sometime later. Playing with this texture mod; get used to non-vanilla characters.
*Notice II:
Knowledge of Final Fantasy XII: The International Zodiac Job System is required. Do not download this unless you have knowledge of such. Trance returns, but has no extra abilities.
Scenario altered and world map enemies swapped.
*Known Bug:
Boss Battle: Samuel/Xuchilbara/Lobsel Vith, sometimes sock-lock during battle. After numerous tests and fixes; the bug was not completely understood, other than the battle sometimes soft-locks if the battle carries on for a long period of time. Though the battle can be completed either way.
Necron's resurrection and vengeance to complete what the previous embodiment was born to do. Necron's recreation of the Mysterious Girl, the Maenads to obliterate the prime target who happens to have taken on the art of summoning. Any surviving summoners must be obliterated. Legendary summoner herself, came through the same elevator, to warn and fight along with these innocent victims that were sent to the land of Gaia, by Necron, during the Holocene Era of 1800. The Interdimensional elevator, known as, transportation of the Maenads. The Maenads used a shard, activating such elevator to travel through the space time continuum. Once they located the prime target, their program was initiated and back through the Interdimensional elevator, they went. Through the process; these victims were sent there to relive, feeble and forget who they are and eventually evolve into the original souls that they now abstract. Resulting in a more gentle, peaceful death, Necron declares.
The Summon Program, which is used to give the Maenads summoning powers, control Eidolons and Espers and grow their strength, the world of Gaia is now cloaked with augmented monsters; aimed to take the victims out, ordered by Necron.
