** The Abyssea mini-expansions take place in an Alternate Dimension version of Vana'diel, where alien beings invaded, slaughtered more sentient beings, and turned the skies blood red.
** Both this past world and the alternate world can be reached through Cavernous Maws, which are fragments of the trans-dimensional and trans-time being Atomos. Walk of Echos is the garbage dump of Atomos, a pocket dimension between dimensions.

The Chains of Promathia, the name of the second expansion, [[spoiler: are the five curses inflicted on the playable races by the God Promathia: The Humes with apathy, Tarutaru with cowardice, Mithra with envy, Elvaan with arrogance, and Galka with rage.]] The Treasures of Aht Urhgan, the name of the third expansion,[[spoiler: are references to both the Empress Nashmeira and to the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Mythic Weapons, one for each of the 20 Pre-Seekers of Adoulin Expansion jobs, which are supposed to be the best possible weapons for each job.]]]] The Wings of the Goddess, the name of the fourth expansion, [[spoiler: are the player and Lilisette, the heroine of the expansion, who are chosen by the Goddess Altana as her champions.]]

The [[AbusivePrecursors Zilart]] destroyed virtually their entire race (and almost the entire world) by the entire race being able to focus everything on a single task. The playable races were created afterwards by the Goddess Altana, and then immediately were cursed by the God Promathia, [[VillainHasaPoint but out of good intentions]]; if they [[AHouseDivided annoyed each other too much to work together well]], they couldn't do the same stupid things the Zilart did.

* StupidityIsTheOnlyOption: During the scholar quest "Downward Helix", you are sent with other scholars to investigate who is picking them off one-by-one, with Erlene (the quest-giver) strongly suggesting the students not go off alone. The sinister MostDefinitelyNotAVillain leader of the group sends them off one at a time to search for the culprit, and you have no option to interrupt or countermand him. Naturally, the others all end up dead at his hand.

The game takes place in the fantasy world of Vana'diel, which is split into three great nations: San d'Oria, Bastok and Windurst. Twenty years prior, the three nations united (with the aid of the neutral city-state of Jeuno) to fight an army led by the mysterious [[BigBad Shadow Lord]]. The Shadow Lord was eventually defeated, and the three nations entered into a peace treaty in which they would compete for territory not through armed conflict but a system of benefaction called "Conquest".
