Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age License Board
Each block on the checkered chessboard like surface is a license. Each license gives you the right to do something different in the combat.
A license might grant you access to cast a particular couple of spells or equip a couple of specific pieces of armor, weapons or other gear.
It may also give you access to special move called Techniks or other character bonuses (Augments) that can boost certain stats of your character such as boosting the HP.
As you fight and level up, you will earn License Points (LP). This LP is used to purchase tiles on the license board, which then grants you the bonus on the tile.
It helps your character to grow. Each job has its own unique license board with a different set of abilities.
After every job, when you spend your LP on a tile, this will depend what type of character you are trying to make.
Sometime later in the game, you will get access to a second job in the game, Choose this job very carefully as it will determine the future of your character.
Choose a job according to your current job and the choices you have already made around your first job and the license board.
Some job combinations are more powerful than other combinations.
This is all possible because the licenses available for one job might enhance the abilities of another and acquiring same sorts of licenses will stack buffs that really make your character powerful.
When this is paired with the AI-instructing gambit system, it really makes the combat system satisfying and tactical.
The license boards are designed in such a way that you cannot move ahead without first acquiring the previous licenses.
Therefore, you must move in a sequence. This might sometimes make you buy that skill in which you are not interested in order to move ahead and buy the skill that you really want.
The best way to do this is by grinding LP. More LP means more tiles.
Finally, you must buy licenses very carefully as the path you choose will directly affect the abilities available on the license boards of certain jobs.
