Final Fantasy XIV Races And Tribes Outlined, Detailed
If you were a fan of Final Fantasy XI, you're likely psyched for the upcoming MMORPG, Final Fantasy XIV.
The game's official site has been updated with the game's five available races, and the explanation and details for each. It's all in Japanese but the English summary can be found over at RPGLand, and RPG followers will definitely be interested in the very distinct races. There are the Hyuran, the most numerous tribe; Midlanders who "are literate from a young age, and are brought up with many customs." Their Highlander counterparts are bigger and more muscular, but aren't considered to be as intelligent. The Miqo'te have two tribes; the Seekers of the Sun (active during the day) and the Keepers of the Moon (guess). The Lalafel consist of Plainsfolk who boast flaxen hair and are noted for their good hearing thanks to over-sized ears (sounds a lot like Elves to us). The Dunesfolk "are a nomadic herding people" with "peculiarly glasslike" eyes.
The Elezen tribe has the Foresters - "pale forest-dwelling people" - who have great eyes and the Shaders, who live in dim limestone caves and have a great sense of hearing. The latter is also well-suited to hand-to-hand combat. Lastly, there's the fearsome Roegadyn, which includes the Seewolf tribe (raiders, pirates, and general sailors) and the Roegadyn of Lohengarde, also known as the Soldiers of Fire. They live in a volcanic crater that some believe to be the gates to purgatory; these people are stubborn and have an aptitude for the mystic arts. Sound intriguing enough? Which class will you be?
