The highly anticipated MMORPG from Square Enix, Final Fantasy XIV, is currently in alpha testing phases and is slated for a release sometime this year. IGN recently got word of the races and tribes that will be available upon release.
Split into Midlander and Highlander types. Midlanders take up the majority of the population and exist throughout the land. The large-framed Highlanders originate from the northern highlands, but following the fall of their capital city of Aramigo have become a rare sight.
Split into Seekers of the Sun and Keepers of the Moon. The Seekers of the Sun are active during the day and believe in the god Arzema. The Keepers of the Moon are nocturnal and believe in the moon god Manefina.
Split into Plainsfolk and Dunesfolk types. The Dunesfolk live in desert and lead a nomadic herdsman life. The Plainsfolk reside in thatched-roof housing and are capable of hearing even faint footsteps.
Split into Forester and Shader types. Foresters lived for hundreds of years deep in the forest, but in recent times have either adapted to city life or moved back to a nomadic life on the fields. Shaders resided in dark caves. Many still do so and have turned to thievery. The Shaders have disdain for the Foresters.
Split into Seewolf and Lohengarde types. The Lohengarde live around a volcanic crater that they believe to be the gate to hell. They’re equipped in the magic arts. The Seewolf types came from the northern seas as pirates and are now seen working as sailers.
