What is the Historia Crux?
-The Historia Crux is a collection of worlds created by L'Cie to expand their influence. Time travel is permitted so the past, present, and future can all be changed to satisfy the L'Cie's needs or desires. Sometimes, there are hidden worlds that L'Cie had no knowledge on so any place in particular they reach, whether a gift from concorders or conquered from their inimicals, will be added to the Historia Crux.
Roman Coliseum 300 BF

Many have failed, strong ones too but the early emperor defeated X.A.N.A. along with his ancient warriors.

The early emperor got lost at first but together, they have passed the trials. Today, this maze is used for many things like making use of the environment and improving one's memory of that environment.
Bodhum 0 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. The first base L'Cie has ever built and one of the few places established before the L'Cie clan.

It was now time to take back Reach and restore honor and peace back to the neutralite society.
New Bodhum 0 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. As L'Cie gained in numbers, they realized that Bodhum was becoming too crowded to hold everyone.

Temple of Ragnarok 0 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. The first temple L'Cie has ever built and one of the few places established before the L'Cie clan.

Augusta Tower 100 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. The main L'Cie data processing super structure. Because the city of Gran Pulse cannot store all the intel and data it acquired, this tower can store unlimited amounts and today, that trend never stops growing. There are several levels in the Augusta Tower and each plays a vital part in keeping the structure well-organized and protected. The leader comes here to access these files with the help of his A.I.

After the training, almost all members reported an improvement in their skills, both with and without abilities.
Gran Pulse 100 AF

However, the city was hit by a dark eclipse which cause supporters to panic. After a detailed and careful investigation, L'Cie forces discovered that their sworn enemies, the Anti-L'Cie, were responsible for the attack.

-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. An alternate version of the main city of the L'Cie. Thanks to Etro's divine power, the city has been expanded to be almost three times as large as the original. However, the eclipse still ravages the land but in this timeline, the L'Cie warriors knew exactly how to stop it. With the new city able to support a larger population, the clan has set out on a journey to find this source of the eclipse and destroy it. In the meantime, the emperor himself remained behind to protect the neutralites who have taken shelter and has sworn to keep PSICOM forces at bay until the clan has returned.
Palace of Eden 100 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. The PSICOM-induced paradox of the eclipse allowed the grand emperor palace to be seen without worry. In truth, the Palace of Eden was created long ago and with Etro's assistance, it was hidden away for the emperor's own safety. Normally, it would be safe but with the paradoxes that soon followed after the eclipse, the New Liberty Sentinels were tasked to guard the palace to eliminate any intruders who dared to enter. During peaceful times, the eclipse does provide one advantage. The warriors often invite the neutralites for night parties and festivities while guaranteeing their safety at the same time.
Archytle Steppe 200 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. A hunter base camp. It is protected by huge amounts of landmass and L'Cie travel in vehicles. This camp is composed of mostly scouts who bring back any type of information regarding enemies, places, skilled players, and so on and it is taken to the Augusta Tower to be stored and processed. L'Cie members are careful to place hidden defenses around the land so any invader would be shot down in an instant. Sometimes, the leader himself enjoys his stay here to take in the fresh air and rules over the land.
Oerba 200 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. The new main base of operations for the Pulse/Sanctum L'Cie. Named after a peaceful town that suffered from the War of Transgression, where two warriors saved both sides from the end of the world, this base was built in their honor. Everything we ever need is here and will do whatever it takes to keep this base from falling into the wrong hands. The leader himself is pleased with his work and sees an everlasting future not only for his clan but for all allies of L'Cie.
Eden's Courthouse 200 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. This is where we L'Cie decide the fate of the enemies we defeated and crushed. It regulates on a normal legal court system such as that there are two sides who present their cases: the Plaintiff and the Defendant. Lawyers are also presented to both sides either from their own contacts or by the Pulse/Sanctum L'Cie. The judge is none other than the main L'Cie leader himself and he takes all major cases very, VERY, seriously. This court isn't build for defeated enemies but also for conflicts inside the Pulse/Sanctum L'Cie themselves. Your words will determine if you walk out of here innocent or guilty.
Gran Pulse 300 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. The main city of the L'Cie. After what seems like an endless battle, L'Cie were victorious against their evil counterparts. As the Anti-L'Cie retreat from the city, L'Cie were lucky to find the source of the eclipse and eliminate it. The Fal'Cie were grateful for this victory and celebrate it with parties and all sorts of great things. Out of all places, L'Cie have decided to make Gran Pulse their main base of operations until a new citadel has been constructed. This is to ensure that the city will not repeat history and to keep it safe if the Anti-L'Cie shall rise again.
New Gran Pulse 3XX AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. An alternate version of the main city of the L'Cie. Thanks to Etro's divine power, the city has been expanded to be almost three times as large as the original. For two centuries, both the emperor and his L'Cie have been fighting a war on two fronts. When the sky has finally shown signs of light, it revealed hidden PSICOM encampments which then the clan has vanquished along the way while they progress back to the city. The people living on New Gran Pulse rejoiced and cheered for their protectors as life in the city returns to normal. Sometimes, the emperor climbs the city's mountain to take in the breathtaking view of the festivities below.
Ouramasa 300 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. After the ancient Roman Coliseum 600 years ago, the emperor with his newly established empire are forced to once again prove their worth with a blade.

It is said that the blade will give its power to the one who passes its test of strength, endurance, and heart. Before the creation of the arena, L'Cie have discovered the artifact and decided to provide the sword what it wants: the next warrior.
Valfodr's Realm 300 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. This is where your ability to wield a sword comes in. Warriors from all lands come here to prove their worth and to earn the title of "Valfodr", to honor a very powerful Fal'Cie. The leader himself is very dangerous because unlike others, he has honor in his sword. That allowed him to rise to the top and defeat those who opposed him. All will come but only one will win it all. Very few warriors were able to defeat the leader because they all shared his value of honor. Not only that, the leader himself will present the title to whoever has proven him/herself worthy. If you think you have what it takes to be a master, step up and begin a fight for your life.
Serendipity 300 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. A wedding chapel that conducted several successful weddings and during its birth, has not witnessed any failures.

In addition, the bride, groom, and the L'Cie leader himself, are protected by shields. Only trusted players and, if the reason is legit, their friends are invited. Because balance is important here, it is made in honor of both the Sanctum and Pulse Fal'Cie.
Shrine of the Fal'Cie 400 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. This is the new birthplace of the Pulse/Sanctum L'Cie after the Temple of Ragnarok. It has lasted for many generations and it still stands to this very day. The L'Cie leader often comes here for relaxation and often times, to communicate by spirit with the Pulse and Sanctum Fal'Cie, built in their honor. Any intruder who dares to defile this holy shrine will be killed and banished on the spot. This job is performed by the shrine guardians who carefully selects the rising L'Cie. Rumor has it is that you can actually hear the Fal'Cie's voice when you either honor or dishonor their shrine.
L'Cie Meeting Hall 500 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. Our main discussion hall. All us L'Cie come here to plan just about any event we choose.

His tears of sadness also carries regret and spends every day of his life wishing that some of his warriors were treated better.

All we can do is move on and keep the hearts and spirits of all the warriors who truly fought and protected within us.
Palace of Eden 7XX AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. An alternate future of the year 700 AF and the leader's personal grand palace.

This palace once belonged to a great Fal'Cie named Eden and legend has it that his palace will belong to whoever is worthy of his presence. In this case, our leader was the chosen one.
The Ark ??? AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. This is the savior's main base of operations. The L'Cie emperor decides to make this holy place his personal home, where he can offer his prayers to Yggdrasil, the relic of purity. It also watches over the entire world as time flies on but stops in the presence of the Ark. This was the same task as Lightning once carried out as Bhunivelze's savior.

The leader sometimes comes here to offer his prayers and thanks Anima for allowing him to keep his new home and meeting hall.
Etro's Tower 900 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. A vast super structure that is even more powerful than the Augusta Tower itself. With more advanced technology, the L'Cie A.I., Alyssa, can now process data at lightning speed and ensures the highest quality thanks to the divine power of the Goddess Etro. It was built and named in her honor so that one day, it will belong to whoever Etro chooses. In this case, the L'Cie emperor is the chosen one and he now sits there overlooking the never-ending flow of information and protecting it from PSICOM aggressors.
L'Cie Advanced Training 1000 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. Back on Reach, the training arena only provided the basics that even a newbie can become an average player. Here on Requiem, the L'Cie leader decided to take the training even further and has birth an improved variation which will deliver promising results if used the right way. The only difference is the subtraction of the driving course but all others have been redesigned to truly prepare L'Cie forces for virtually anything in their path. In short, this place will take you to the next level.
Shrine of Etro 1100 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. 1100 years ago, the goddess of Etro lived in Valhalla where she summons Lightning to be her guardian and light. A grand shrine was discovered the same years later and L'Cie forces were shocked to discover that this shrine belonged to the goddess herself. Legend has it that any warrior with 100% pure heart and spirit will receive Etro's blessing and are destined for many great things. But one question still remains unanswered: Why here on Requiem but not on Reach? Lucky for our leader, he was chosen to become Etro's next guardian and save the world as Lightning once did long ago. Now, it is a holy place for new warriors to come.
Halo 2 Anniversary
Atomos' Cradle 1500 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. The first map of the L'Cie born from the new generation of console gaming. With new abilities and uses, this meeting hall is twice as big as the previous which allows more variety in the empire.

This cradle marks the beginning of a new age of the Pulse/Sanctum L'Cie.
Luxerion 1600 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. The third city of the L'Cie empire named after one of the last remaining cities that survived the chaos infusion 1100 years ago. After the savior defeated Bhunivelze, she took the city to a place where no evils like PSICOM would reach it. Halo's gravitational field, the sun's rays and the nearby planet all made life in Luxerion possible and it was said that it was the biggest city the emperor has established. Until a new city surpasses this one, Luxerion stands as the new capital of L'Cie.
L'Cie Expert Training Island 1600 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. With the revival of traditional aspects, the L'Cie clan now has the knowledge of their ancestors to not only strengthen their skills but learn new ways to implement them. The warriors, including the emperor himself, utilizes their senses and their instincts to the max so that even the most strongest members of PSICOM will pale in comparison to their newly acquired strength. Just like the other arenas, the training itself is up for interpretation and depending on your commitment and resilience, success or failure will be the result as it states in the belief of the balance.
Temple of Bhunivelze 1700 AF
-Time and memory, frozen in crystal. It was said that the god, Bhunivelze, was the sole creator of the Fal'Cie which then gave birth to L'Cie. Balance was important to him which means that in truth, there are actually TWO types of swords instead of one: light and darkness. The new generation of L'Cie now has the option to be branded by either but the sole purpose now is to live harmoniously with that balance. The journey itself may prove more difficult than ever but if the great Bhunivelze became legend by this lesson, then L'Cie can be legend too.
