A Realm Reborn



Eorzea. A land embraced by gods and forged by heroes. The bountiful aether that flows through this lush realm has ensured the peace and prosperity of its peoples for generations.

Eorzea is a realm that comprises the continent of Aldenard—westernmost of the Three Great Continents—and its surrounding islands, most notably the island of Vylbrand. Often called a land "embraced by gods and forged by heroes," Eorzea has played a central role in many major historical events, such as the rise of the Allagan Empire or the Battle of Silvertear Skies. In recent years, its conquest has become the focus of the Garlean Empire, causing the city-states of the realm to join together and form the Eorzean Alliance.


Eorzea is made up of Aldenard and its surrounding islands, the largest of which is Vylbrand. The realm is home to the deserts of Thanalan and plains of Paglth'an in the south, the lush forests of the Black Shroud and Lake Silvertear in Mor Dhona at its heart, the vast mountain range Abalathia's Spine to its north, and the island of Vylbrand—home to La Noscea and Mt. O'Ghomoro off its western coast.

The so-called Five Seas border the realm, the Bloodbrine Sea to its north, Indigo Deep to its west, the Rhotano Sea between Vylbrand and Aldenard, the Sea of Ash to its south, and the Sea of Jade to its east. Surrounding the realm are various islands including the Cieldalaes archipelago south of Vylbrand, and Mazlaya and the Pearl in the Rothlyt Sound southeast of the Black Shroud.


Major Cities

The peoples of Eorzea congregate in city-states, small, independent nations consisting of a single city and its dependent territories. During the majority of the Sixth Astral Era, there stood six city-states, but by the beginning of the Seventh Umbral Era, only four remained. The city-state of Ala Mhigo fell to the Garlean Empire, and the scholars of Sharlayan abandoned their city to return to Old Sharlayan in the Northern Empty.

Ruined City-States

Though four city-states still stand in Eorzea, there were six others that prospered in previous Astral Eras. These city-states were either abandoned or had fallen as a result of Calamities or other conflicts.


Eorzea is home to many members of the wandering races. The most prevalent race is the Hyur, with the Midlander clan being the most prolific among them. It is also home to members of the Elezen, Roegadyn, Lalafell, and Miqo'te races. The Au Ra are a small minority in the realm, as they are native to the Far Eastern continent of Othard and not commonly found in the west.

Apart from human races, Eorzea is also the homeland of myriad other Spoken races (sometimes known as beastmen), such as the Amalj'aa tribe of Paglth'an, Ixal of Xelphatol, Kobolds of O'Ghomoro, Sahagin of Indigo Deep, and Sylphs of the Sylphlands.
