Races

Final Fantasy D20 pulls races from almost all entries in the franchise, splitting them up into Core, Base and Beastman Tribes. The Core races are the most common to find within most campaigns you will play, with base races being slightly less common though still seen often amongst settlements. Beastman Tribes are the outliers, mainly sticking to their own settlements within secluded areas, their abilities are often more exotic or uncommon, sometimes even monstrous.

Each race shows a race point cost table next to their example image, this shows the racial trait options they currently have on their base statistic block. This information is to show transparency on how things are made, though are mostly only going to make sense to GMs or those who have used RP before. The tables can be ignored for the most part as it does not affect your character creation, only the traits below and alternatives are what you should work around. Races in FFD20 will not go beyond the range of 10-19 race points, with the soft target being 15, races were redesigned with their lore as well as their specific focuses in mind.

For the race ages, heights and weights you can go to the Race Statistics page where it details the minimum values, examples for the classes and random charts to roll on for your physical makeup.

If you are looking for the versions of these races with traits before 16th March 2020 then you can view the Legacy Races, these will not be removed from the drive folders and are safe to use if you wish to not use the up-to-date versions. The legacy races feature a wider range of racial traits which some can view as unbalanced or are banned in play.
