Ys Seven tells the continuing tale of Adol and his ongoing journey of monster fighting, and world saving. The story is a major part of the Ys Seven experience, but it does not provide any revelations in narrative, or character development. You play as Adol and you have to do some stuff to save some other stuff in order to prevent some bad stuff. Your true motivations really aren’t even revealed until you are about a third into the game, and even then the incentive for completing your mission is kind of ambiguous. There’s enough there to compel you to get to the next chapter, though.
