Latest Patch: 1.69. If you have an earlier version, please download the latest patch as soon as possible.

The download has been updated to version 1.69. It includes all fixes up to this point. There is no need to re-download if you have patched in the fixes separately.

You know that game many aspiring devs create? The one starring their friends, often times based on a chat room, or some forums, or a MMO... or perhaps a fangame that barely resembles its source material. The one that gets maybe a half hour of gameplay finished and is completely unintelligible to anyone except that group of friends. Yeah, that one. Now, what if someone actually saw that project all the way through, and attempted to actually make it a fun, accessible, and playable game that was faithful to its source material?

Enter Legend of Balance. This game originally started out as a fun little project for friends, starring characters from Final Fantasy XIV. Over time, and with a ton of effort, it changed into a complete game of its own. It still stars our characters, and there are still a few injokes, but the plot has been set up as such that any Final Fantasy fan can get into the game and enjoy it as a light hearted Final Fantasy romp. Players of FFXIV will find quite a bit to enjoy as well. The story of the game takes place inbetween the end of FFXIV 1.0 and the start of A Realm Reborn(if you haven't played FFXIV, this part probably doesn't matter, and the game can be standalone).

The game revolves around a group of heroes, champions of the realm of Eorzea. In the midst of an intense battle to decide the fate of Eorzea, the heroes are transported away before facing certain death at the hands of Bahamut. Finding themselves separated in a brand new world, the heroes begin a journey to reunite and find a way home. However what starts off as a simple quest quickly unfolds into a classic journey of crystals, great evil, and steadfast allies. Before this adventure ends, they will discover the truth behind this strange new world, and uncover the binds that tie it to their own home and beyond.

-30 to 40 hours of gameplay, including a multitude of sidequests.

-Enjoy a faithfully recreated Final Fantasy battle system. Everything is as you remember it from the classics!

-Utilize classic abilities, including commands such as Jump, Runic, Blitz, Mime, Throw, Mix, Blue Magic, Dualcast, and much more, along with new commands and abilities based on other games in the series, such as Draw Out from Tactics.

-Equip Magicites to gain access to powerful summons and customize your stat growth.

-A huge cast of unique playable characters, including several hidden ones.

-Find and use faithfully recreated equipment. Favorites like the Ultima Weapon, Illumina, Brave Blade/Chicken Knife, Offering, and much, much more is all here to find and use to become unstoppable!

-Dozens of sidequests ensure there's plenty to do, with no need for excess grinding.

-Face off against familiar foes and brand new ones, including a nostalgia filled bonus dungeon for those who complete the main story.

-Facing a foe that your current party can't handle? Switch party members anytime, even in the middle of a fight!

-Buy rare and unique items at the Auction House, and battle in the Colosseum!

-Take part in minigames, including fishing and an arcade-style airship shooter.

-Customizable Battle Speed, Battle Mode, and Difficulty will get you the experience you want, be it tough as nails or a more relaxed game.

Misaos and Fun Times in RPG Makers Animation Editor!

First off I want to say thank you so much to everyone who voted for our fangame in the Misaos! We won in a few categories and got pretty close to winning in a few others. I was very humbled by all of your support and am very grateful as well. I know Rydiamist feels the same way, So again thank you everyone! Your support is huge motivation booster to get stuff done on our next fan game!

Rydia has been working on making a small little bonus to the game to celebrate getting 5000 downloads! I personally have moved away from working on Legend of Balance other than looking into bug reports we get here and there… but I that doesn’t mean I don’t have something new to contribute to it as well!

I have been spending a lot of time working on our next Final Fantasy fangame, making sprites, looping music, making maps and tilesets, all sorts of fun stuff… but in addition to that, I have been trying to recreate some cool Final Fantasy animations in RPG maker. Let me tell you guys something… I HATE RPG makers animation editor so much, it is so hard to work with… but you have to do what you have to do.

One of the animations that I have been working on has been Fenrir. Now, I always thought it was strange that Legend of Balance didn’t have a Fenrir Magicite since (spoilers) you fight Fenrir in the game. However! For the 5000 download patch, I would like to present to you, Fenrir's Animation~!



Now i’m off to slave away on our next fan game!

Hi, I'm sorry if I'm disturbing you, but I need some help with the game.
Is there anyway you can help me with that?

Your question has been answered in the former 5 posts.
It refuses to download.

Really sad because I want to play this.

Guess it's off to the reject list... :(

EDIT: Suggested Storage Client: MEGA (50 GB FREE just for signing up!)
Sorry for the trouble, did you try the Google Drive link as well? You can get that and then apply the 1.69 update to it (reminds me that link needs to be updated).

Unfortunately that's a RMN thing, it just directs to the main download. I'm glad you were able to get to the other ones, though.

Meh. It's backasswards, but at least I was able to download it, only to find I had already done so over two weeks ago...the f*ck...(just how do you do it Amelia)

Did you intend to distribute it unarchived? I mean, if you did then it's fine but...

(well it does leave a nice set of scripts for me to look at-and a LOT of them)
Thanks Rydia, but I dont have that either :(
I started to write some kind of walkthrough for this game.
But I just reached Aquaria.
So I can't help you with the Aegis Shield right now.
It is a strong shield. Perhaps you have equipped it to someone.

Yeah, it's unarchived because the compressing/encrypting it was causing some issues with installation for some people. Doing it this way just made it easier, and if someone wants in an encrypted project it's very easy to do so. I don't mind people checking out the scripts and stuff but I do request that people at least ask if they want to use something I've modified.

It's obtained in the Crystal Cave, maybe you missed it? And as Firefly said, equipped items won't show up in the inventory screen.

Yep. That's why I totally forgot to keep track of the equipment. But I will mention all items found, Blue Magic Spells when available and persons of interest in it. For now it is still quite linear but it will get tough.
When I'm done, I will send it to you both per PM as a doc or docx or open office (what you prefer more). Then you can make changes directly.
