Star Ocean: First Departure

The party heads to Van Castle in order to join in the battle against Asmodeus, and contacts the Van King to do so. The King then sends Roddick Farrence and his friends into a trial, and after they finish it, he tells them the connection about the Muah, the Emblems, the Demon World and the Eye of Truth. He then asks the party to retrive the Emblems from each kingdom and gives them the Emblem of Van, which they would later use to establish contact with the other kings.

After obtaining all the Emblems, the party returns to Van Castle for a final briefing. There, the king sends them to retrive the eye of truth from the Purgatorium, but meanwhile, they are surprised with the visit of a monster, who adverts them of the powerful weapon that Asmodeus has adquired and the destruction of Durss.
