Utopian Races
 

Humans
Humans make more money, and are a well rounded race.  If you only log in once a day, want to lead a well rounded race, then this race might be for you. The downside to this race is its elite.

ADVANTAGES
+10% income                             It helps, and money is very important.
+1 vote for president               This is useless, you get 1 extra vote.
-10% learning costs                 Science is a bit cheaper, not a big bonus, but it helps.
DISADVANTAGES
-10% thievery effectiveness   This is not as bad as it sounds.  You have the same chance of succeeding, and
                                                    defeating a thievery  mission, but get 10% less for your efforts    ex: instead of
                                                    bringing home 200 gc, you get 180 gc.

                                                    advantages for an elf.

+20% thievery effectiveness   This is a great advantage.  You have the same chance of succeeding, and defeating a
                                                    thievery mission, but get 20% more for your efforts    ex: instead of bringing home
                                                    200 gc, you get 240 gc.
DISADVANTAGES
-1 general                                  This forces you to attack larger enemies to keep up land wise.  This is what majorly hurts
                                                    an elf's military.
