Mission map for The Southern Reaches.
|Combatants||Kingdom of Palatinus|
The Southern Reaches is the first scene from the prologue of Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber.
General Godeslas assigns a battalion of new recruits under Magnus Gallant and Diomedes Rangue to conduct a training exercise in the Tenne Plains. Upon arrival in Zemio, the two commanders are briefed by Hugo Miller, a tactician assigned to their unit. Hugo explains that the local towns have recently been terrorized by groups of monsters and bandits. He places Magnus in overall command of the troops, a decision that does not sit well with Dio.
Feeling slighted, Dio leads Magnus outside and challenges him to a duel to settle who will be the commander. Hugo arrives and scolds the pair before the fight can begin. He orders them to continue on with their mission.

|Guarding Theodricus Mine|
The Southern Division troops capture the bandit leader Stabilo at the Theodricus Mine. Magnus tries to question Stabilo on his motives behind the attacks, but the prisoner remains silent. Dio suddenly appears, announcing that rebels have kidnapped Prince Yumil. Stabilo laughs and reveals his true purpose: the bandits were merely meant to distract the Southern Division while other rebels capture and murder the prince.
Despite a lack of information and resources, Magnus decides to lead his force of rookies to rescue the prince, as his battalion is the closest to where the prince was kidnapped. He then sets out for the Volmus Mine.
- The player has the option to choose whether Magnus will accept Dio's challenge or decline. If the player chooses to fight Dio AND chooses the response "..." at Frederick's exection, Dio will leave your battalion.
