    when you win a battle or destroy an enemy
    ? Question: What's your favorite soldier?              ?

    adds a new dimension to battles.

    This section tells the story for each race featured in the game.
    - - - - -
    Tha' Roon
    - - - - -
    The Tha'Roon have always been in charge. The Eaggra have always been
    their slaves and the Obblinox have always been their allies. And they
    want to keep it that way. They will kill anyone who gets in their way
    so long as they can maintain absolute power over the planet.
    - - - - -
    - - - - -
    The Obblinox are the brute force behind the Tha'Roon. They are the
    warriors that have kept the Tha'Roon alive and prosperous. However now
    they wish to be free, even if it means destroying their allies.
    - - - -
    - - - -
    The Eaggra are the alien equivalent of the original Native Americans.
    They live off the land and wish only to be left to themselves. But the
    Tha'Roon began to enslave the Eaggra and now they are fighting back.
    They will fight as long as it takes to be free once again.
    - - - - - -
    Shama' Li
    - - - - - -
    The Shama' Li want nothing more but to keep the peace and unite the
    four races. While they will use force when necessary they are usually
    kind and peaceful. While they have the hardest quest of all the Shama'
    Li also have the most unique and interesting one as well.

    Magic Power: Slightly Below Average

    Speed: Below Average
    Difficulty: Medium
    Other Notes: While their stats might make it seem otherwise the
    Obblinox also have fairly easy quests. Slightly more difficult than the
    Tha'Roon and a nice alternative if you're familiar with strategy games
    but are new to War Wind.

    Building Power: Excellent

    Magic Power: Above Average
    Speed: Poor
    Difficulty: Hard
    Other Notes: The 2nd hardest race to play as. They're fighters are
    fairly powerful but their slowness makes it hard to completely take
    advantage of them. They're the best builders. I recommend their quest
    for people who have beaten it with the Obblinox and/or Tha'Roon once or

    Unit Diversity: Excellent
    Difficulty: Extremely Hard
    Other Notes: While they do not excel in any particular area the Shama'
    Li are average or above average in almost all areas. However because of
    this they are also given the most difficult quests. In fact in some
    quests you will have all three other races against you.

    Wild Life
    - - - - - -
    There are various animals running around in the world of Yavaun. Here's
    some info on them.
    Bonca- The rhinoceros-esque gray horned creature. They tend to be
    peaceful but can put up quite a fight if you annoy them.
    Bonca Fledgling- A heard of rodent-like creatures. They are much more
    aggressive than their parents, but they are easier to dispose of.
    Slink Weed- Eaggra Weeds ride these. They are very ferocious.
    Snipethorn- A long snooted anteater like creature. Also very ferocious
    with great long range capabilities.
    Rubble Fiend- While this monster originally appears as a mere rock, get
    too close and he'll transform into a giant rock monster. Although a
    group can kill one with ease you're best off running when flying solo.

    disposal, along with killer hand to hand combat skills.

    and the ability to mine 3 times faster than your best resource
