Race-specific Strategy Guides

The following race-guides are written by various authors who have been kind enough to allow me to post their work here. Although I am not the author of most of these guides, I have spent quite some time on their layout, ranging from some changes in colour and background to a complete conversion from plain text to HTML and sometimes some updates or corrections. So please do not copy any of these articles to put them on your own website without asking both the respective author and me first.
