Karnak's citizens lead comfortable lives, and the cost of items and weapons is low thanks to the Fire Crystal, which is hooked up to an amplification machine created by Cid, extracting the powers of the Crystal.
Karnak is a strong country with a great armory, all thanks to the power of the Fire Crystal. When Cid discovered the machine he had created to enhance the power of the Crystals is overusing it, he tried to deactivate it, but was caught by the Karnak militia and put in jail. This encouraged Queen Karnak to demand a wall to be built, blocking the way of any scholars from the Library of the Ancients that may follow Cid's example.
Later, the Karnak Meteorite falls near Tule. Bartz Klauser and the other Warriors of Light reach the country of Karnak via a warp device in the Walse Meteorite that takes them directly to the Karnak Meteorite. From there, they head to the town of Karnak, where they are arrested, since a witness saw them leaving the alien rock.
The party leader can play a piano at the pub. Playing all the pianos in the world acquires the last song, Hero's Rime. This is the third piano the player is likely to encounter, and thus results in the early lessons of finger exercises rather than playing a full song.
Weapon and armor prices are reduced to 25% of their actual price, before the player is arrested; however, they are only able to access a shop once before this happens. This can be exploited to gain easy gil by buying multiple amounts of the same item for a reduced price and then selling them back after leaving jail in Karnak Castle.
[view·edit·purge]The Karnak Temple Complex, commonly known as Karnak, comprises a vast mix of decayed temples, chapels, pylons, and other buildings. Building at the complex began during the reign of Senusret I in the Middle Kingdom and continued into the Ptolemaic period, although most of the extant buildings date from the New Kingdom. The area around Karnak was the ancient Egyptian Ipet-isut ("The Most Selected of Places") and the main place of worship of the eighteenth dynasty Theban Triad with the god Amun as its head. It is part of the monumental city of Thebes.
