Vaan, like many RPG heroes before him, hunts monsters for monetary reward. Once you enter Rabanastre's pub for the first time, you'll be set on a quest to find a specific foe. You'll also be introduced to the License Board. This looks much like an elaborate chess board but seems to serve a very similar purpose to Final Fantasy X's Sphere Grid. Different abilites are contained on the board - for example, white magic, and as you spend LP (License Points, of course) you can unlock further ones, opening up new opportunities for character growth.
