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!

Sent you a fix, try doing the scene again if you don't mind. Don't worry, you get a chance to replay the airship game as much as you want later to get a high score.


It works :D
Thanks again :D

hello RydiaMist
i got a problem again.. :D
when the ship is crashed after mini-game that shoots the bomb (got 2000 scores T.T) and then everyone wakes up, in the world map, there isn't characters to move, so it is just a screen that i can move everywhere, the battle is still appeared and normal.
i try to enter Jipang village, and i try to move the north (still with the only screen to move), i see all characters gathered there freezed.

when i put 'Map139.rvdata2" in my data folder and play, the city of emerald becomes tower of zot-3f and all becomes black.
Ummm... there is no Tower of Zot in LoB, do you perhaps have Alter Destiny as well? Because Map139 in that game is Tower of Zot - 3f.

That battle should have a story event that ends it... and I thought I put in a failsafe that would let the game continue in case something went wrong. I will take a look at it. As for the issue with Dag, he wasn't set to through so he probably somehow ran into an errant NPC offscreen and softlocked the game. Place this in your Data folder, it should fix the issue.

Hello :D
sorry for late replying
i'm sorry it wasn't 1.69 but 1.70. btw, for this problem, i have fixed it by copy the data and play it in 1.69. it was success. the game can go on without any troubles.

however, in patch tower, where i fight with Tanaka (patch 1.70), i also find the problem. when it is unavoidable to lose to continue the story, it becomes game over. the game just end.
coincidentally, i also fix the problem. when i replay for several times, i try to remove the aishee from the party while in game-battle and leave karina with tanaka, and the game is able to continue.

the game is running well so far until, when fievel is dressed up by karina and aishee to get levistone from sultan, after dag (red mage) complains it and leave to the left of screen, the game is freezed without any dialogs appeared (but the person with blue skirt near well is still move). T.T
sorry for inconvenience
thank you

There was a slip up and I put a beta version of the newest patch in the public folder, and the bug was related to that. Did you get 1.69 or 1.70? I deleted the beta of 1.70, it contained adjustments to Hard mode which caused this error. Try getting the 1.69 patch and replacing the Enemies in the Data folder with the one from that, it should fix the problem.
hello producer :D
i love you work..
i got some problems here, could you help me..
when i was in the middle of the game, especially when i will fight with the titan (pyramid where to get earth cyrtal)as my last scenario of 3 scenario which i chose, i got stucked and appeared on screen that is "Script 'Tsuki Action Condition' line 94:NoMethodError occured. undefined method formula_conditions for nil:NilClass"like that. should i download the game again or not?
thank you....
note: this is the latest patch 1.69.

Where is the Brigand's Glove? I missed it.

Also, is the boss before you get jailed meant to be unwinnable? I got a genji Glove for managing a win.

Answered you in PM, but I'll answer here too for anyone else with the same questions.

The Brigand's Glove in a secret room in the mansion in Aquaria. The NPCs in there will mention there being a draft. Press against the left wall of the big upper room to find a hidden staircase.

It's an optional win fight. If you lose the fight, the party is just unconscious when it fades back into the map and the scene proceeds from there. You get a Gauntlet from a NPC shortly after if you lose, and a Genji Glove for winning. You can bet whatever you didn't win for the other at the Coliseum later in the game, so you won't permanently miss anything by winning or losing.

where is the Genji Glove at??


There's 2 chances to get Genji Gloves directly. The first is to beat Kaayu in the first fight in the manor. The second is to steal a set from her the second time you fight her. Otherwise, you can bet the Gauntlet in the Colosseum to get a pair. You get a Gauntlet if you lose the first fight with Kaayu. A second can be stolen from the Dullahan in the Library.
the latter.

and i was pretty sure i had seen all the inn scenes.

i probably should have asked if there is multiple endings or ending versions.

the only thing i want from newgame+ is magicite from the beginning.

and maybe an even harder hard mode. something really painful and masochistic
author=Selius
do you have plans to add a newgame+?

i definitely enjoyed the hell out of this game. game clock is at 55 hours but ive been playing it at double speed. though it's probably accurate in terms of total game time considering all the resets and gameovers lol.

playing the whole thing on hard is so damn good. that first fight against kaayu was so satisfying to beat.

this is definitely a 10/10 game. up until
that shitty cliffhanger ending, anyway. fuck i hate cliffhanger bullshit endings


New game + was something I was considering, but it looked like it might cause a lot of issues with a lot of things. I'll take another look at it for the upcoming patch, I'll need to decide how to implement it as well (keep everything ala Chrono Trigger, or just keep items/equipment).

gj playing through the game on hard! Not a lot of people seem to know you can win that fight, even on normal, so good job!

I'm glad you enjoyed the game so much and got so much playtime out of it, until the ending.


Unfortunately, the ending is open-ended because it was meant to bridge into FFXIV ARR. Are you referring to that, or the fate of a certain character? If it's the latter, a friend actually recently alerted me to a problem with the ending where a conditional scene was actually skipped under some circumstances. In said scene, if you did certain things during the game, that character would have a different fate. It will be fixed in the next patch (or I may just upload it as its own patch since it's a serious issue).)
