The Tribes of Elyria are the twelve major racial and geopolitical groups that make up the Children of Mann. Each is native to a particular biome or group of biomes, and has its own distinct culture and racial traits.
There will be eight tribes on the starting continent at launch: Brudvir, Dras, Janoa, Neran, the Waerd, To'resk, Hrothi, Kypiq. Four additional playable tribes will be accessible after ocean travel is researched and their continents have been discovered: Yoru, Owem, Erishe, Mydarri. It's important to note that even though there will be one continent at launch; however, all continents are being built and defined before launch and will be in-game just not accessible at launch.
