Your Lands and Buildings
Some Buildings can only be built on certain land types. This is the case for every building, although Homes are built on different land types according to your race. This is detailed below. All buildings except homes and barracks employ 20 people and house 15 people. Barren Land for Halflings, Dwarves, Goblins, Kobolds and Gnomes house 10 people, while the other race's Barren Land house only 5.
