The Starter Set is on the market for preorder, and it features a Participant E-book, Gamemaster E-book, Premade Character Sheets, a Rules Summary & Strategy Guide, and 16 customized cube; a mixture of each D20s and D6s. The Starter Set additionally contains an Encounter Map, Character Tokens, and Capacity Markers.
The discharge coincides with A Realm Reborn’s tenth anniversary—the relaunch of the initially-troubled MMO that turned it into one in every of Sq. Enix’s greatest video games—and is the primary TTRPG to come back out from the Closing Fantasy franchise.
There’s no trace wherever on the sort of system or gamestyle that the sport will make the most of, however it appears save to imagine this will likely be a fairly traditional, flip primarily based, fight centered fantasy RPG. It appears very doubtless that this can be a distinctive system, and I’d be extremely stunned if this was a hack of something. I can’t inform something from these promo photographs, however regardless of the D20s looming giant, I really feel assured this isn’t going to be primarily based round Dungeons & Dragons’ fifth version. There’s not likely a whole lot of further data, however on the Starter Set web page, the 4 premade characters included are 4 main jobs from the sport to fill a typical celebration make-up of Tank, Healer, and two DPS gamers: a Warrior, White Mage, Dragoon, and Black Mage.
Whereas lighter variations will include the Starter Set, however there are additionally two books proven as at present unavailable that can help the RPG—the Commonplace Rulebook and the State of affairs & Gamemaster Information. There’s at present no data on when these will likely be launched, however if you actually, actually can’t wait to play a Closing Fantasy-style sport, I’d suggest the ENNIE-winning Fabula Ultima, a incredible TTRPG that has among the finest onboarding techniques I’ve ever seen in a TTRPG.
The Closing Fantasy XIV TTRPG Starter Set is on the market for preorder for $59.99, and will likely be launched in Could 2024.
