As a world premier, ToT now has a extensive system to manage vassals and aftervassals. The players can now make vassal contracts, and climb in the feudal ladder. There are eight different titles on Tamar: Baron, Viscount, Count, Marquis, Duke, Archduke, King and Emperor. For each ascending in title, there will be a separate animated screen.

But titles are not only a symbol of status, they are also worth real money! Each rank is entitled to a number of free turns per month. If you ascend high enough, you can play ToT almost for free.

The piracy reports were added upon numerous requests from players and tester. Piracy should be an even better feature now.

Dragons were seen!

The dragons are a very old race of winged lizards. These enormous creatures like to settle in far off regions. On Tamar, there are several kinds of dragons, distinguishable by their skin color. They all have some things in common: They hatch from eggs, are carnivore, use their fiery breath as a weapon, love gold and gems and are very powerful.

Dragons live hundreds or even thousands of years. Because of their long history, they tend to look down on younger races like men.

Tamar is the home of different kinds of dragons. Legend has it that some can even be summoned by elves and dwarves if they are in danger.

The strongest and most powerful of them all is the Golden. His fire can destroy whole towns. Fortunately, he is not very aggressive and of a lawful disposition.

Contrary to the Red Dragon. This chaotic-evil creature has nothing in mind but fiery death to all races. He is not as powerful as the Golden, but his aggressiveness knows no limits. He sinks ships, destroys towns and defeats large armies, if need be. Everybody be warned about this dragon.

Dragons usually appear in small flocks of 1 to 4.
