Nature is the race of critters in Illyraid. All non-sentient species fall in this race category which encompasses alligators to polar bears to wolves. These races are not playable, hire-able, nor involved in factions. The units of these races are classed as one or more of the various classes of units (spear, infantry, ranged, cavalry) with most (but not all) utilizing spear units as the lowest level units while some have only a single unit class (Elephants are all cavalry). Typically, within a race, each level of unit is stronger than the previous level of the race's unit, while the class of the unit may change or stay the same as they advance in level. Also typically a camp of critters will contain a decreasing amount of a specific level of unit as the level of the unit advances.

See Unit Size Table for a chart of the amount of critters that may be in the camp.

From statements by GM:s and player experiments, it seems clear that while player interaction with animals will influence migration patterns, and may cause animals to stray from their normal habitats, the game will compensate for attempts to exterminate or reduce certain animals through hunting. At present migration patterns have not been explaied, other than being governed by biome and terrain preferences. Animal groups will grow in numbers if circumstances arefavorable to them, but have not responded to any attempts by players to feed them using any resources. It also seems certain animals will move in order to attack or avoid certain other animals, according to set preferences. If two groups of different animals (or animals and a player's forces) meet on one square there will be a fight between them, resolved as a regular game battle, resulting in the destruction of one unit and appropriate casualties in the other, with hides and rare animal parts being dropped on the square. Resources dropped in this way will remain for seven days before decaying beyond usefulness.
