Faraway Story
Pharmacist-in-training Pia departs from her home town, determined to cure a disease striking the nearby town of Port Fina.
Upon arrival, she can't help but notice a giant landmass floating in the sky above the town: the Faraway Continent.
To her surprise, the townspeople think little of the continent, though many rumors exist about what might be there.
And what begins with Pia running her little item shop on the hill ends up as a story spanning many faraway places and times...


Faraway Story is an action RPG made by Fantasy Factory in Wolf RPG Editor.
Between story scenes, you fight through both randomized and predetermined dungeons using a variety of weapons and magic.
You can also gather and create many items via alchemy, improving your skills to get better items for yourself, or to sell at your own shop.

Note: The game is complete in a sense, but has an extensive "post-game" planned.
One entire scenario, Part 1, is fully playable (and approximately 25 hours long).
However, a second (of theoretically comparable length) is still in the works, and does promise a true conclusion to the story.
Version 0.65.11 contains three chapters of the Part 2 scenario. It could be a long time before Part 2 is fully complete.

A basic walkthrough for the main plot and missions/sidequests. It doesn't give much battle advice. Beware of spoilers!

Music

Below is a list of songs and their sources. Beware of spoilers!
Many of the source links are impossible to find, as a number of the sites have gone down.
In fact, even more have gone down since I first made this list, so their links are crossed out.

The VaLSe MP3s are free to download, but require an account on the site.
So when available, I also included the MIDIs which don't require anything.

The EXEs on the archived Enterbrain site are just self-extracting ZIPs, I swear. Don't ask me why they used that.

Do not reupload these songs elsewhere without permission from their respective creators.

And what's it floating for? Just for the sake of floating?
