A must play if you have any interest in what can be accomplished with modding FFT
Souls of Destiny does more than create a new story for the player to enjoy though, it really shows off what can be accomplished when modding Final Fantasy Tactics. It has new music which is a very rare and is an untapped tool to this day. It has custom maps that are very refreshing and interesting to play. A myriad of new sprites are unique and make the characters feel special. The main cast has new jobs with a plethora of skills to learn. CONMAN has harnessed the tools available and created something worth experiencing.
It is, however, a bit rough around the edges. CONMAN is a one man show and unfortunately the level of polish just isn't quite there. That is also to be expected as the mod itself only had CONMAN as a tester and he already has plans to correct errors in the script as well as make it compatible with more emulators. It does take away from the experience here and there, but it does not make it any less fun or any less worth playing.
The mod has been balanced for fun rather than difficulty. All characters have enough tools in their main jobs, but can become crazy powerful when paired with the modified Vanilla jobs. I only found one or two battles in the main story required a retry. This did detract from some pivotal story moments, but overall I have no qualms with how the mod plays and did have some memorable battles (Lucavi vs Lucavi anyone?).
There is a vast amount of optional content as well. You will not find yourself wanting more characters as the roster of recruit-able characters definitely does not disappoint. Each battle and event outside the main story is unique as well as a blast to experience. Some are even quite challenging, but the reward for victory is always worth it. For those who like their unique items, there are plenty of new ones as well as some that can only be stolen from your foes, so don't forget that thief at home!
Overall, Souls of Destiny is the biggest mod currently available on this site. It has more content than Vanilla and includes a brand new and intriguing story. It is an unpolish gem of a mod and you would be sorely mistaken to not grant yourself the pleasure of playing it. Thanks for creating such a wonderful experience CONMAN, I look forward to whatever you make in the future!
