As mentioned in the Overview, there are 5 unique races a player can choose from. The Humans, Dwarves, Elves, Orcs and Amazon races can be found throughout Jairon. Each races has their strengths and weaknesses so each player can decide which race best fits their personality. For example, Players who like to play aggressive through military tatics might choose orcs because of the orc’s raw destructive prowess. Those who rather play more defensively and pursue the diplomatic strategies in the game might choose the Elves. Essentially what you will find is that any race can be used effectively for any strategy you may choose to pursue. All that is required is that you know all the races strengths and weaknesses so that you can exploit your enemies weaknesses while concealing your own. Those with enough skill and savvy will find the challenges of strategically playing a race against the norm might actually prove to have a superior outcome. For beginning players though, it probably isn’t a wise decision to play a defensive strategy with your flesh hungry orc hordes, they may decide to turn on their Leader if things don’t go well…
