Table of Contents

The Light that Pierces the Darkness (闇を切り裂く光 [yami wo kirisaku hikari]) is the first event of Final Fantasy Record Keeper, and was of the Challenge type. It ran from 1.10.2014 to 10.10.2014, and featured the events of Mount Ordeals in Final Fantasy IV, where Cecil Harvey climbs up the mountain to become a paladin.


The stage of the event was quite naturally Mt Ordeals, and the various locations within it were stop-points along the way up the mountain to the summit and its stone pillar. Each sub location was only numbered and not given a special name.
