The markwiss would be pleased.

Some of you in the audience may recall a little game called Final Fantasy Tactics. That game quite literally spawned an entire world, one that Square Enix has returned to several times, including in later hits such as Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy XII and the GBA and DS Final Fantasy Tactics spinoffs. While our chances for revisiting Ivalice in-game look a bit slim, join me, Derek, and Piano Collections Final Fantasy XII arranger/performer/charming fellow Casey Ormond as we reminisce and talk about the enduring aural legacy of the Ivalice Alliance!

Rhythm Encounter Episode 5: Ormond Alliance

So T.G. Cid, Al-Cid, and Dr. Cid walk into Migelo's Shop in Rabanastre... wait, no. The fifth episode of your friendly neighborhood music show delves deep into the world of the Ivalice Alliance, featuring Final Fantasy Tactics (and its sequels), Final Fantasy XII, and Vagrant Story! The music here was so rich, though, that we brought along a pro to help us break it all down: Piano Collections Final Fantasy XII arranger/performer Casey Ormond!

Featuring: Stephen Meyerink, Derek Heemsbergen, Casey Ormond
