The Sorrow of Werlyt
The story revolves around the follow-up of The Ultima Weapon project by the VIIth Imperial Legion and its new Legatus, as well as the struggles of five Raen Au Ra orphans adopted by Gaius van Baelsar before the war with Eorzea.
The Garlean Empire seeks to break the stalemate with Eorzean forces by unleashing the culmination of its twisted experimentation─a brutal warmachina that exists only to destroy. On both sides of the battlefield, shadows of the past loom large as the decisive clash draws ever closer.
The uneasy alliance forged with Gaius Baelsar has paved the way to victory over the Ruby Weapon. Armed with knowledge of the location of the outpost whence it came, the time has come to confront the Empire and bring a swift end to the diabolical Weapon project.
Gaius and the Warrior of Light are another step closer to thwarting the Empire's warmachina development project after vanquishing the Sapphire Weapon. However, newly unearthed information alludes to another foe lurking in the shadows, and you must take decisive action before it is too late.
With adamantine armor and a beating, blood red core, the Diamond Weapon is the culmination of countless sacrifices and untold suffering. When the ultimate triumph of the VIIth Legion's monstrous Weapon project descends upon Werlyt, who will be saved, and who shall fall?
