well, just want to give u some info about FFXI...

New Story And World Details
Square has released some new information on the structure of Final Fantasy XI's game world and the way players will interact with it, offering a clearer look at what has been one of PS2's most mysterious games.
The story takes place in a world that mixes swords, magic, and technology on the beautiful planet known as Vana'Diel. In the past this world was blessed by the source of all things in the world, the Crystals. Together with their power, those that believed in the light fought against the monsters that followed darkness. The monsters destroyed the beautiful villages and cities, turning the lands into a vaste wasteland, and the water into deadly pollution. Eventually, mankind was able to fight back the monsters and regain peace for their land. However, 20 year after the fighting, when people begin to forget the memories of the horrible war with the monsters, the scent of evil once again blows over the land of Vana'Diel. All is resting on the powers of the crystals.
Many different peoples and creatures inhabit the land, but so far Square has focused on three specific player races:

NEW RACES

Hume/Human
If they're not exactly called "humans" in the lingo of the world (the katakana in Square's profile omits the "an"), that's more or less what they are. A balanced, middle-of-the-road species, with the ability to acquire many different skills.

Tarutaru
Cute little suckers, ain't they? And they even look big, if you angle your forced perspective right. These fellows mainly inhabit the Windas Kingdom, where they're very well-known for their magical ability...

Elven
Or "elves" if you prefer. The Elven generally make their home in the Sandoria Kingdom, a tall, strong, martial race. They make the best warriors in the game, but their proud nature lends itself to internecine strife.
There will also be other player character races, some of which have a distinctly towering quality (presumably something along ogreish lines), and it wouldn't be a Final Fantasy game without any Chocobos to have fun with.

3 most importants kinds of trees...

Meanwhile, the three major races inhabit three major nations. The world of Vana'Diel is more or less at peace, and peoples from all three can travel freely where they'd like to go, but tension between the countries does exist now and again.

Bastuuk
The Humes or humans or whatever you're meant to call them raised up this nation with their advanced technology and special natural resources. The capital city grew up around a mine where the metal Mithril can be found -- it soon became a center of craft and research.

Windas
This is a nation cobbled together out of many disparate Tarutaru tribes. Their magical powers have raised up huge, organic cities, seeming to blend naturally with the environment around them, where the Tarutaru continually refine and develop their magical abilities

Sandoria
The homeland of the Elven rose up in fragile unity after a protracted civil war -- it holds together for now, but the presence of so much pride and violence continually threatens to break down order. The capital city is kept strong by the alliance between the royal knights and their religious counterparts
