Before we begin, I would like to thank the Lord Jesus Christ for my life, and all the gifts which I've been given in it, including the ability to make this extension. Your name be glorified, my Savior, even in something as small as this. Amen.

What lies beyond the horizon? Untold riches? Unknown civilizations? Great challenges? Unimaginable dangers, or friends you just haven't met yet, whom you'll never forget all the days of your life?
Either way, viewer, one thing is certain: as you venture to the ends of the earth, you'll need some awesome listening music for the journey ahead. And wouldn't you know; I, Alkahest, happen to have found some awesome tracks for you to listen to, as you set forth on your adventure. They're even extended for your listening pleasure, too! Hope you enjoy 'em.
The once prosperous world of Lapis has fallen under a foreboding black cloud. Sustained by the light of six elemental crystals, dark forces have arisen who seek to shatter these life-giving sources of power, thereby bringing about the end of world. Rain, an idealistic knight, and his boon companion and fellow knight, Lasswell, set forth on a journey with the mysterious amnesiac girl, Fina, to prevent this terrible event from coming to pass. At their command: "Visions", eidolons of storied heroes whose dreams transcend even death, and beings called Espers, summon beasts of incomparable strength and power who bestow the right to call upon their aid only to the worthiest of champions.
In their path: the sinister Six Sworn of Paradia, whose inscrutable motivations are paired with all-too-easily discernible wicked intents, and an ambition that would spell the end of all things. The stage is set, and the players assembled. Join these warriors of light in their quest to banish the darkness, and to protect their world from devastation. This, gentle reader, is not Sparta... it is FINAL FANTASY: BRAVE EXVIUS.
.... oh, and it's a mobile game, if you can believe it. Seriously! First FF title I've seen since FFX that stirred even a glimmer of interest in my playing it, and it's for mobile. Go figure. Composed by Noriyasu Agematsu, 'To the Horizon' serves as the World Map theme of Lapis. The very moment it begins, it is a swelling, proud, triumphal tune that sets the mood for a gloriously grand adventure; a world of infinite possibilities stretches out before you, each one more incredible and jaw-dropping than the last. Wherever it is you may be headed as you venture forth to the horizon, this theme will make your journey a wonderful one.
Oh, and the first ten seconds or so remind me strangely of the Opening Theme from Skies of Arcadia, my favorite RPGs of all time, so that's pretty awesome too. A happy coincidence, I'm sure; most of the BE OST actually uses Uematsu's classic "Prelude" FF theme in creative and wonderful ways. This one doesn't, but it's no less sublime for it.
You know, I have to say, I knew of Noriyasu Agematsu's work from the Wild Arms series, and was pleasantly floored on hearing music from Brave Exvius. As you've no doubt noticed, it's stupendous, it's phenomenal, it's breathtaking, it's... wow. Not since the days of Nobuo Uematsu have I been so amazed or moved by FF music. Everything about the BE OST is spectacular; it makes me wish the game had been released on a different platform, I'd have probably played it for the music alone. (The story and gameplay mechanics aren't too shabby, either, I hear...) But I'm not into the mobile gaming scene, so I'll have to settle for loving its music. Not such a bad alternative, I guess!
Alas, this marks the end of my Brave Exvius extensions. I figure it's a title great enough that other extenders will cover to such a degree that I needn't worry about releasing any further tracks from it, but hey, maybe I'll change my mind. Up next, we've got an operatic piece from Uncharted Waters. I hope you enjoy! Take care, and may God bless.

Honestly, when it comes to cell phones, I'm kinda like Cranky Kong. "In -my- day, our mobile phones were the size of archaeologist-chasing boulders, and had a range of five feet; ten if you bought the extra five foot string adapter package. Not to mention that the only game we could play back then was tic-tac-toe, and we could only do that by writing the X's and O's onto the phones with chalk... And we liked it, by gum!"
