The inns charge 320 gil.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

After being mind-controlled by Gigameth, King Gorn causes the Saronia Civil War by splitting his army in half and ordering them to fight each other. He also exiles his son, Prince Alus Restor, from the castle, and imposes a curfew that shuts down all businesses except for one weapon shop in the northeast that operates secretly.

When the Warriors of the Light fly over Saronia in the Enterprise, the Saronian military shoots them down, trapping them within the city walls. They save Alus from some thugs in a pub in the southwest area and he joins them to try and stop the civil war and figure out what caused King Gorn to start it.

They go to the castle to speak with the King and Alus is released from his exile; they are subsequently invited to be guests. During the night, Gorn enters the bedchamber to attack Alus, but turns the knife on himself at the last second. Gigameth's mind control is revealed; it was broken by the order to kill Alus. Gigameth transforms into Garuda, but the party defeats him.

King Gorn's wound is mortal, but he is able to reconcile with Alus before his death. Alus is crowned as the new king and the war ends, returning life in Saronia to normal. In thanks, Alus gifts the party with the airship Nautilus.
