Spirit (Legacy) were a fast/medium speed race that is more or less the same as Undead. The major difference is that Spirit belongs to the Good alignment and Undead to the Evil alignment. These two races always seem to have the most people playing them round after round, probably because SPUD is one of the most unique races in dominion. All of their troops are immortal (in most circumstances) and when they attack they can convert the enemy's casualties into more of their own units. The basic idea of attacking with SPUD is to hit in the proper range as often as possible using elite OP in order to generate free elite DP units for your dominion. Because they are a fast/medium speed race, it is recommended to have started building Guard Towers by mid-round. Spirit were originally introduced into OpenDominion for Round 14 and were removed from the race rotation for Round 15 but returned in Round 17. A mew Spirit based on the old Dark Elf (Legacy) race was introduced in Round 26.
