This is the Elf concept I expected for FFXI and was let down by the Elvaan race. I'm hoping SE gets it right this time. Elves are supposed to be good at using magic and quick on their feet, not the opposite. The Galka/dwarf types should be strongest because of their bulk.
I like that about the Elvaan though.
They're not traditional elves
they're really playable orcs or hobgoblins, if you look at their stats and culture.
warlike, violent history full of backstabbing, martial pride and all.
I'd prefer if there wasn't female galka, I liked that they kept an ugly character choice out in FFXI.
A robot race would be interesting, it could work. I'd want them in the Shining Force/FEDA 16bit style.
or just beastman races made available. Being a yagudo or antican would be cool. Aht Urgan has the yagudo who hangs out in the city, and the Eastern Kingdom is allied with the Yagudo. FFXI's storyline showed that the human races all warred with each other before, or allied with beast races before. Edited, Jun 12th 2009 7:31pm by ogrebattle
