The Imperial Camp (帝国軍陣地, Teikokugun Jinchi?) is a location in Final Fantasy VI. It is a temporary encampment set up by the Gestahlian Empire during their invasion of Doma. The camp is overseen by General Leo and Kefka.
During the siege of Doma, some of the Imperial soldiers discuss a rumor, while being cautious about Kefka's presence, that Kefka plans to drive out Leo and usurp his position as general, with one of the soldiers angrily threatening to quit if Kefka ended up being made general before being called to a charge at Doma Castle. After the initial charge is foiled by Cyan, Doma's retainer, General Leo begins to reconsider the Imperial strategy for victory, attempting to minimize casualties on both sides. Kefka encourages the use of underhanded tactics, and has no sympathy for the Doma defenders.
Sabin and Shadow infiltrate the base to get to Baren Falls and the Veldt, and bear witness to Kefka plotting to poison the river that is Doma's water supply. Leo rejects Kefka's plan, but is called away by Emperor Gestahl. In his absence, Kefka goes ahead with his plan despite the attempts of Sabin and Shadow to stop him. The poisoning kills the vast majority of Doma's citizens, and Cyan storms the camp on his own in a rage. Sabin and Shadow intervene to help him, and the three commandeer three suits of Magitek Armor and fight their way out of the camp.
The camp is notably one of the few areas that cannot be revisited at all in the game, so the player must grab the handful of treasure here on their first visit. One chest is locked, and the player has the option to hit it or kick it. Both options unlock the chest, but kicking it provokes a Doberman standing guard over the tent to attack. Another chest houses a monster-in-a-box, a Satellite, that drops a powerful piece of armor, the Green Beret.
