Humans are a selectable faction at the start of the game. Humans are the best at maximizing gold production, having acess to an additional gold multiplier building and the Red Dragon Farm special (the Human variant adds 40 gold/turn). Human cities require food to grow.
Humans have acess to the following special buildings:
The Magic Garden (built on Magic Fields), Dragon Farm (built on Red Dragon Eggs), and the Silver Armory (built on Silver Deposits).
