I finished Ys VIII. Great game. 10/10. So the story is, Adol Christin and other passengers aboard the Lombardia are traveling by sea to go somewhereidontknow (because this is my first Ys game). Suddenly, gigantic tentacle destroys the Lombardia and everyone gets washed ashore on this island. They build a ship to get off the island and everyone is happy. The end. Oh but some other interesting things happen during the game too.
