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!



Latest patch has been updated to 1.64.

-Fixed a passability issue in Garuda's Peak.
-Fixed an issue where magic evasion was applying to certain spells, causing them not to apply positive effects.
-Fixed an issue where the ability "Wide Volley" could cause enemies to become unkillable.

Wow this game has been awesome,I thought itd be kinda short but when I played it there was full of awesome surprises, anyway, I was wondering where to get the present for ironbug when trying to get aeth to break the ice, and also who to give the letters from the little girl to, I already gave it to jolteon, ithisul, ironbug, and the other girl in aquaria (loved the dickbutt)
Glad you are liking the game :D Yeah the game is not exactly short, it's not super long but its probably a lot longer then a lot of RPG maker games.

The present is a Fire Charm. Off the top of my head I know you can find one in the Fire Shrine

As far as the letters go, I think the people you are missing are... Rachel, Taru Pervert, and Azran/Eden.
Thanks! Also sorry one more question, I saw that frog drop is quested, where can you get the quest from?
There's an NPC near the Riverside Cabin, it becomes available near the end of the game.
Thank you very much! And sorry last question (question galore) where is the fire shrine again? Not sure if I already past it or havent gotten there yet, if I did go there already I probably found the charm but sold it, also, where do I get the thieves writ, and the specific weapons for kaayu, 99, divinus, abelia, cassie,and gradd, thank you and sorry for bugging you with questions
The weapons should all be listed in the FAQ section, check that out and if you still have questions feel free to ask. Thieves Writ comes from Kutan.

The Fire Charm is unsellable so don't worry. The Fire Shrine is the area at the bottom of the Gurgu Volcano, where the Fire Crystal was.

EDIT: Nevermind, apparently those sections weren't completed. I'll get on that.

Kaayu: Head to the manor in Cecille, up to the second floor. There should be a maid NPC at the door to the room where the party is captured early in the game.

99: Head to Kutan and talk to Allie, then head to the Thieves' Cave.

Divinus: Head to Mielo and do the sidequest. After the boss, head back to town and speak to everyone.

Abelia: Head to Enaya, there should be a NPC near the well.

Cassie: Head to Rosalia and speak to Jolteon outside the church.

Gradd: Head to the Inn on the Plain, there should be a new NPC inside.
Thank you so much, and this is the absolute final question, for karinas weapon, where is the lightbringer? I know the guide says bobes rest but I don't know or forgot where that was, thank you
Its an island on the northwest corner of the map I believe, there should be a single house on it. If you walk to the northern most point on the island you should be able to obtain the lightbringer.
Ok im confused, I equipped ramuh on Karina and when I tried to use him Alexander popped up in the menu, but I have Alexander on dag, I thought it was just a glitch on the menu but when I used it Alexander showed up, whaaaa
Ok finished the game and wow eeeppiiiicccc, are you guys planning on making another game? Like a sequel, or a prequel, or a completely new story? Id love to see a sequel, I think the characters in the game where awesome
If we were to make another game it would be a completely new story and on the more serious side of things (not like super serious, but Final Fantasy esque seriousness).
I'm glad you enjoyed the game! As Ashiee said, if we do another game it'll have a brand new plot. The gameplay will still be mostly the same though, besides improvements and new systems. =)

As for the Alex/Ramuh thing, I will look into it and get it fixed.
hi the game looks nice to me
but when i downloaded and tried to run game.exe this shows up
Script 'InputEX' line 703: RuntimeError occurred
LoadLibrary: xinput1_3
what should i do?
I want to give a suggestion: It would be awesome to do an extended ending, after beating the final boss in the bonus dungeon, and then battling the final boss of the game, with him having 10x more HP and stats.
Hmm, so something like in Star Ocean 2? If you complete the bonus dungeon and then go to beat the game again the final boss is powered up? That probably wouldn't be too hard to do, if that is what you are thinking.
Yep, something like that. Because with all the characters in Lv. 99, it's not so hard to beat the dungeon at all. hahaha
Yeah, I hadn't really expected that people would go back and do it again except to just slaughter the end boss. But it'd be easy enough to do, I'll have a powered up final boss unlock when you beat bonus dungeon. =)
Wow, that bonus dungeon---just wow.
So much nostalgia. Never felt so alive when i beat it.

Especially the last memory.
