Bringing the Realm of Eorzea to the Tabletop
In an announcement that combines the realms of digital and physical gaming, Final Fantasy XIV has revealed the launch of its own Tabletop Role-Playing Game (TTRPG). This official release commemorates the 10th anniversary of A Realm Reborn and invites players to venture into the game world in an entirely new format.
While traditional tabletop RPGs have long allowed players to craft characters and stories, guided by the roll of a die and a gamemaster’s narrative, this new TTRPG takes the experience to the fantastical world of Eorzea. Familiar locations, iconic FATEs, and a host of well-known monsters and NPCs will be part of this innovative journey.
What’s in the Starter Set: An All-in-One Adventure Package
Designed as a comprehensive kit, the FFXIV TTRPG Starter Set aims to provide newcomers and experienced players alike with everything they need to dive right into the game. Here’s a quick rundown of what you’ll find inside:
- Player Handbook: A friendly introduction to the world of role-playing games, covering all the essential rules and game mechanics.
- Gamemaster Guide: A detailed resource providing game-mastering tips, as well as three ready-to-play scenarios closely tied to Final Fantasy XIV’s lore.
- Predefined Character Sheets: Colorful, ready-made sheets for four classic roles—Warrior, White Mage, Dragoon, and Black Mage.
- Dice: A set of 16 dice, comprised of 6d20 and 10d6.

- Skill Markers: To help keep track of character abilities.
The game is designed for groups of 3 to 5 players (5 players recommended) and is suitable for players aged 14 and above. There’s no set time limit for your adventures in Eorzea.
