PostSubject: The Necrohol of Nabudis   Wed Oct 22, 2008 5:21 pm

"The Nethicite's Mist has corrupted the life of this place. It is a Necrohol overrun with Beasts. We tread here on a Fool's errand, and we had best turn back."

The Necrohol of Nabudis is a location in the land of Ivalice in Final Fantasy XII. It is a palace, now corrupted by the thick mist that covers the north part of the Nabradia Region.

Though the Japanese term for the area is simply 'dead capital', the etymology of the English translation is a little more obscure. The necro- element clearly refers to death or the dead, but -hol is not so apparent. It may be a form of hollow as in several place names, rendering it "Dead Hollow". The term has since been reused to refer to any dead (and usually haunted) Ivalician city.

The Necrohol of Nabudis is located in the north of Ivalice, in the Nabradia region. The Nabradia Region is under Archadian rule, except the northern region where the Necrohol is, due to the thick mist covering the area. The location is not part of the main storyline of Final Fantasy XII but entirely optional. During the entrance cutscene, the player is told that it is a foreboding place and is warned against exploring the area. Depending on when the Necrohol is reached, this warning is given by Basch or Fran.


Not much is ever revealed about the once great city of Nabudis. Now, it is a ruin swarming with the souls of people killed in the destruction, full of regret and resentment.


It was two years ago that Judge Zecht, came to Nabudis with the Midlight Shard, under Dr Cid's instructions. It was up to him to see how Deifacted Nethicite worked and reacted. The results were more horrible than anyone could imagine, wiping out the city and covering the area in a thick mist. The entire area became a haven for various creatures most vile.

Sealed Monsters

Deep inside the Necrohol are three fearsome beasts that possess the power to destroy the world. In fear of the their power, three Nu Mou sealed the monsters away while dying in the process. However, within the two years of the destruction of Nabudis, the seals are weakening, and so the spirits of the Nu Mou set out to locate a hero of great strength who could defeat the monsters once and for all.
