It's an expansion pack for FFXI
A direct, pat answer is never given, but my interpretation from the CoP plotline is that the "Chains of Promathia" are the fragments of Promathia's Emptiness within the souls of each of the Five Races, binding them to their respective racial weaknesses and to their inevitable fate of destruction. At the culmination of Chains of Promathia, the 'chains' are broken both directly by purging the Emptiness from the soul of your character and indirectly by averting disaster for the Children of Altana.
