The Meteor Project
was a plan conceived of by Nael van Darnus
whereby the Garlean Empire
would re-create the lost Meteor
sorcery using Allagan
technology. As the project progressed, it aimed specifically to guide the descent of the lesser moon, Dalamud
, onto Eorzea
in order to annihilate the realm's out-of-control primal
threat and resistance to Imperial rule in one motion.
The realization of this plan in 1572 under the combined might of the VIIth and XIVth Imperial Legions directly led to the seventh Calamity.
