This page serves as a hub for an ongoing project to try to document as many versions of the Final Fantasy Tactics script I can find available. Presently it includes text from the original Japanese, the original PSX translation, the War of the Lions remaster, fan translations by Sugnuf and Chira, and the Saudade Fantasy Tactics and Second Read rewrite mods (Note: The Second Read script is also freely available as a base text for personal mods for the Lion War 2.0; there is also a variant that modifies difficulty in addition to the script). Transcripts by TBaatar, RevenantThings, the webmaster of G's Cemetery, and this diligent blogger were all of tremendous use in assembling and checking the text that appeared in actual in-game releases.

Note: At present, only excerpts from key scenes of Chira's translation are available on this site. (Check out their archived site for the rest!) There are also some gaps in transcription where I was unable to trigger certain battle dialogue in some mods or did not track decision-dependent dialogue through all routes. Expect to see many additional tweaks and updates to this page over time.

Feel free to report any typos or missing content.
