The Apocrypha, also known as the Forbidden Magic, are legendary magic spells featured in Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together. These can only be used by special classes (plus the Siren, in the SNES/PS version).

They originate from the Valerian Isles, created as weapons of war, but such was their destructive power that they were sealed out of fear inside the Six Ancient Temples of Philaha (four in the SNES/PS version).

History Edit

Origin and Sealing Edit

It's not known what the original source of the Apocrypha was. They first appeared in records from Dorgalua's Great War, when King Rodrick of Brigantys used them in a desperate attempt to defeat Dorgalua's forces. The magic was so powerful that not only did Rodrick destroy Dorgalua's armies, but he destroyed his own along with his territory.

After Dorgalua's victory, he forbade further use of the Apocrypha, and ordered the, sealed in the Ancient Temples of Philaha.

Rediscovery Edit

During the events of the Heim Conflict, Denam Morne was told about the Apocrypha by Mreuva Phoraena, the man who sealed them in the temples. With the help of Phoraena's daughters, Denam unsealed the temples and defeated the temple guardians, acquiring the forbidden magicks in the process.

Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together (PSP) Edit

The Apocrypha are the strongest spells in the game in terms of raw power, as a result they are exclusive to special classes. The six elemental Apocrypha are obtained from clearing the Ancient Temples of Philaha, while the dark and light Apocrypha are found in the Palace of the Dead and Ruins of San Bronsa (Floating Ruins) respectively, but may also spawn from some event battles in Chapter 4 and CODA.
