Final Fantasy: Chronicles of Eno
Advertisement:

Final Fantasy: Chronicles of Eno is an in-development fangame based off of the famous Final Fantasy franchise. The project started off as a custom Final Fantasy D6 campaign that is still in progress, and so the game is likely to remain in development for some time.

The game does not share a universe with any previous Final Fantasy title. Rather, much like how each new entry in the main Final Fantasy series itself takes place in a unique setting, the setting is the world of Eno. It shares many of the elements that connects each Final Fantasy's setting, such as Chocobos and Moogles, but has its own lore and unrelated storyline.

The D6 campaign was recorded, the ongoing series can be found on YouTube.

Work on the game adaption began in early 2019 in the 'RPG Maker MV' engine, and it is currently ongoing.

Final Fantasy: Chronicles of Eno contains the following tropes:

  • Action Girl: Ni Ethil, a Vetayan Ranger and lethal archer, just like her sisters.
    • Mika Solwin, despite her status as a healer, proves to be capable in a fight.
    • Athena, an old friend of Alicier.
  • Adaptation Deviation: Some things had to be changed to adapt the concept from tabletop to videogame form, such as more numerous combat encounters since the game has a lot of dialogue.
  • Adorkable: Ni and Mika when they are first discovering their feelings.
    • It doesn't end there, either.
  • Amnesiac Hero: Ni Ethil may be some flavour of this. Her true name is Eralia Blackstorm, something she was apparently supposed to remember despite being found as a mere infant. Her true origins are a huge plot point. She might not even be a true elvaan!
  • And I Must Scream: The now-ghost victims of the Seat of the Plague.
  • Ascended Extra: Mika Solwin joins the party towards the end of the first chapter.
  • Ax-Crazy: Many of the infected in M'Rasu, including the first enemy of the game.

  • Back Tracking: Heading back to M'Rasu from the plains outside the city.
  • Bad Dreams: Ni Ethil is plagued with these, only they may not be dreams...
  • Beneath the Mask: Ni tries to act confident and assured to those around her, often acting as a de-facto leader of the group. But her mysterious past is always catching up with her, and when it does it shows just how much of a bad place she is in mentally.
    • Rocket seems adorable, but more than one person has lost their ability to sire children because of her. Her favourite move is a kick to the nuts.
  • Big Good: Ni Ethil, Thanatos, Alicier and Rocket the Chocobo. The player can select which character they wish as their party leader on the game's opening.
  • Big Bad: The God of Death, Diabolos.
    • Soraan and the Seat of the Plague for Chapter 1: Plague of M'Rasu.
  • Big Damn Heroes: The citizens of M'Rasu see the player party as this, even though they ended up helping the city quite by accident.
  • Big Damn Reunion: Rocket reunites with her former travelling companion in Chapter 2.
  • Bonus Stage: Should certain actions be taken, these may pop up every once in a while. These can range from secret cutscenes to full dungeons.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The cult in M'Rasu, including its leader, Soraan.
  • Breather Episode: A moment of calm and a budding romance between Ni and Mika after the player party got completely destroyed by Soraan. This moment is soon shattered, however, when Ni has a particularly traumatic vision.
  • Break the Cutie: When Mika is forced into combat for the first time.
  • Cat Girl: Mika, and most of the other residents of M'Rasu.
  • Clark's Third Law: Magitek.
  • Cult: The Cult of M'Rasu.
  • Combination Attack: The Finishing Move to kill the Seat of the Plague.
  • Curiosity Killed the Cast: When the group first see Soraan and attempt to sneak up on him rather than fall back for reinforcements. They learnt this lesson well, so things went quite differently the next time.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The player VS Soraan, both sides of the coin during the two fights with him.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Pretty much all of the player party qualifies to some degree, though Alicier has had the least amount of trouble prior to the game's start.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Thanatos, who is a dark knight and empowered by shadow (much to Soraan's surprise).
  • A Day in the Limelight: Each initial member of the party has their own storyline running alongside the main story.
  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: The group finds two infected orphans, Ni going to great lengths to ensure they will have a home when all is said and done.
    • Thanatos.
  • Desperation Attack: With their enemy wiping the floor with her and her friends, Ni Ethil performs her first Limit Break to turn the tide, inspiring the others to perform similar feats ending in a Combination Attack to finish it off.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Turns out 'Water' is more potent than one might think.
  • Doorstep Baby: Only Ni was left inside a crate in some random alleyway.
  • The Dreaded: The God of Death whom Soraan serves.
  • Dream Sequence: Ni is haunted by visions of a dark figure, being the igniting factor of her story.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The Seat of the Plague.
  • Finishing Move: The party join up to finally strike down the Eldritch Abomination Seat of the Plague.
  • Friendship Moment: Ni and Thanatos share a couple of these.
    • The two also have confided in one another the reasons for their fragile states of mind, something neither has shared with Alicier or Rocket.
  • Five-Man Band:
  • From Bad to Worse: As if the plague wasn't enough, turns out a GOD was behind it.
  • Grand Romantic Gesture: After spending almost two months with Ni and Mika nervously exploring their feelings, the former is seeking a way to let the latter know that she has truly fallen in love with her. To do this, she has secretly commissioned a dress in Mika's favourite colour (red) and wishes to present it on a surprise date when they reach Mika's destination, the Academy City of Anomo. Unfortunately, Ni is a horrible liar.
  • Happily Adopted: Ni is close with both her adoptive parents and sisters, idolising the latter. However, her past is not so easily pushed to the side.
  • Heroic Bsod: Two times for Ni. Once when she had her first vision while outside of M'Rasu, and again after discovering that the golden stars she keeps seeing, that somehow connects to her origins, are demonic in nature.
    • Thanatos, after meeting his Master again and discovering his disappointment in him.
  • Heroic Suicide: Subverted. This is how Soraan saw himself when he plunged his sword into his own chest in an attempt to let off enough dark energy to kill the party. He failed, being finished off by an arrow through the brain from Ni and a maelstrom of fire from Thanatos.
  • Hidden in Plain Sight: The Cult of M'Rasu were based in a warehouse in the dock area of the city.
  • Hit Points: Each party member and enemy has them. The former's increase after each level gained
  • Interspecies Romance: Ni Ethil, an Elvaan, and Mika Solwin, a Miqo'te.
  • Interrupted Intimacy: When Ni and Mika were initially discovering their feelings, a guard walked in on them. He promptly left them to it.
  • Killer Rabbit: The Tonberries are small, slow and amazing chefs. They are also more powerful and lethal than the Eldritch Abomination that the party faced earlier, and everyone is terrified of fighting one.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Cloud is mentioned by Rocket after almost being consumed by a 'cloud' of poison.
    • The second unlockable Bonus Stage is this, as it is a recreation of a non-canon birthday surprise for Rocket's player in the original tabletop campaign, directly addressing said player at the end.
  • Limit Break: Each player character has their own unique one only accessible under certain circumstances.
  • Mad Scientist: Pretty much sums up Deviacorp.
  • Magitek: Common in Final Fantasy, Rocket is a Magitek Cyborg.
  • Mysterious Benefactor: The one behind the plague and cult in M'Rasu.
    • The figure Ni sees in her visions, who seems to have some unknown connection with Ni.
  • Mythology Gag: "I wanted to meet Cloud, but not like this!". Which is also Leaning on the Fourth Wall since Cloud does not exist in this setting.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: The group lets a single cultist live. Up until this point, they left no survivors, so Soraan didn't know exactly who these new heroes were and how they fought. Now he did, and sufficiently prepared a Curb-Stomp Battle.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Rocket has become something of a mascot for the group.
  • Noodle Incident: Ni and her sisters one got so hammered that the former jumped from a tower thinking she was able to fly.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: The young girls the party find, the elder of which leads them to the cultist hideout in M'Rasu.
    • Ni Ethil herself. Abandoned and found by her adoptive parents, her unknown origins hangs over her like a cloud given her constant lifelong visions that has potential demonic connections. Part of her visions is a constant swarm of Demi-Amber, floating like golden stars. Amber is a substance created by demonic entities and is the source of the plague in M'Rasu, capable of being both lethal and highly corrupting to those strong of will.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Soraan reveals his overwhelming amount of archers during when he met the player party.
  • Permanently Missable Content: If you don't meet the requirements for the bonus stages, then they are gone forever.
  • Player Party: Ni, Thanatos, Alicier and Rocket are the main group.
    • Mika Solwin joins at the end of Chapter 1: Plague of M'Rasu.
  • Quest Giver: Ta'am and Laren Kain.
  • Redemption Rejection: All attempts to reason with Soraan are rejected.
  • Run or Die: The party very narrowly escapes Soraan, Rocket carrying the half-dead group all the way to the castle before collapsing.
  • Ship Sinking: Ni tries hitting on a dancer named Luska and gets humorously shot down immediately.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: Somewhat subverted. Ni Ethil and Thanatos have become close over some shared trauma, the former playfully hitting the latter over his teasing. But since Ni Ethil is homosexual, they can never be anything more than close friends.
  • Stat Grinding: Averted. Levels are automatically granted at certain points in the story.
    • However, the player does still need to spend gil to upgrade their equipment and buy consumables. If they don't, then the game will become quite a challenge for them.
  • Take Your Time: Vanaar wants you to rescue one of his guards. You will get to it, but you could also return to a previous area and fight some infected for a bit to earn some gil.
  • Tone Shift: The serious tone can occasionally give way to some levity.
    • The DM.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Fayn is forced to work for the Venaldi family, which puts her at odds with the party even after befriending them. Of course, she isn't given much of a choice...
  • Weapon of Choice: Each party member has theirs, though can be given other weapons if the player so desires.
    • Ni: Crossbow.
    • Thanatos: Scythe.
    • Alicier: Staff.
    • Rocket: Her claws.
    • Mika: Spell books.
  • Welcome to Corneria: No, kid, we aren't bad guys.
  • Wham Episode: On meeting Soraan, the player party is absolutely destroyed by him.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: How the group believe Soraan will be treated should he win.
