08.11.2004 - Finally some pictures from the Games Convention

Take a look at our booth and some other impressions from the Games Convention.

24.07.2004 - Tales of Tamar at the Games Convention

Eternity will be present at the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany from August 19th to 22nd and show Tales of Tamar for PC, Amiga and Mac. A special highlight will be a first glance at the nearly completed 3D engine.

We will also hold a small presentation of about 45 minutes every day at the GC Cinema. Topics will be Tales of Tamar and game development in general.

We would also like to take the chance to point out that the Amiga version can played as Trial now, too. All you need to do is download the game including the lastest update and, when registering, enter 'Trial' instead of a serial number. This will allow you to play the game for free for a limited time and test it for a few weeks before you have to buy turns.

Every player visiting the convention and showing up at our stand can register there to receive 50 free turns.

The Games Convention is currently Germany's biggest game fair with about 90.000 visitors.

22.07.2004 - New PC Version V0.50

Tales of Tamar keeps on improving...

The newly released PC version 0.50 implements the gods. The player is now able to choose from one out of ten gods, resulting in several bonuses and penalties within the game.

You can choose among:
  • God of War
  • God of Peace
  • God of Fertility
  • God of Fire
  • God of Water
  • God of Air
  • God of Farming
  • God of Animal Husbandry
  • God of Mining
The effects of the gods are diverse. While the gods of cultivation increase the production of resources, the elementary gods provide protection for natural disasters. The god of war strengthens the attacks of your armies while the god of peace increases their defense. The god of fertility speeds up the growth of your population. Of course, you should name your god and shape your game play accordingly.

The choice of a god is a requirement to hire clerics. These will be added next.

We are still looking for beta testers. You can apply at www.tamar.net.

Tales of Tamar is a turn-based PBEM fantasy, strategy and role playing game in the tradition of Kaiser and Civilization. It runs on a Pentium 200 or better with modem dial up to the Internet. It is developed by Eternity Entertainment Software.

Until the next release Your ToT-Team

23.06.2004 - New Amiga Version V0.52 R1

Hello dear players,

finally, a new Amiga version can be released. Due to the current tester situation, it took a little longer.

Important! Always make a backup of all data. If you don't make a backup, it's your own fault if you lose data. We have, as always, tried to find all problems, but you can never be sure.

New features & bugfixes:

- yet to be translated

Tearing down buildings

Probably the most important new function. Please note that due to an earlier problem, two buildings in you capital may be lost. Those are the town hall and the tavern. Both buildings must be rebuilt by you, in case they disappear.

Since most old players are bigger by now, this shouldn't be too big of a problem.

Giving an receiving land

Using a scout, you can now give land and towns to other players. Your scout has to be on the hex in question and get the order "offer". The scout of the receiving player has to be at the same spot and get the order "accept".

If both player get these order in the same turn, the land in question will change owner.

If a third scout is present and also receives the order to "accept", not transfer will take place, that way you can block a transfer.

The peaceful transfer does NOT modify confidence.

Trade offices

In every town, you can now have up to 20 trade offices. The extend the granary capacity and will serve a storage room for goods in the future. At the beginning, each realm can store up to 50.000 units of goods. Each trade office extends the capacity by 100.000 units.

The storage limit is not active yet.

Further information:

Registration screen improved:

Registering for Tales of Tamar has been a trouble for some players. So we have improved the registration screen. It now contains a loop where the user can enter and test the POP and SMTP server several times, if needed. If the initialization fails, the entered data is now preserved. Altogether, the whole process should be simpler now.

New autumn graphics:

Another improved area is the map. Besides the summer and winter mode, we now ave an additional graphics set for the autumn. In the third quarter of the year, all deciduous woodlands are glowing red, brown and gold now. A really gorgeous view. The ocean squares now also show the depth of the water.


This new version requires you to take care for the usage of every acre of your country. Acres can be used in one of 4 ways:

1) Cultivating
2) Fishing
3) Wood production
4) Stone production

You have a certain number of workers to employ on each square to improve the production for that acre. Especially important is cultivation as this will determine the maximum harvest.

For big players, this is too much work. So you can set the button "automatic", which will distribute the workers and jobs evenly. Of course, this setting will not be as ideal as you could achieve by manual settings.

This version adds a new source of food, fishing. On every water acre you own, you can deploy workers as fishermen. The resulting production will be converted to grain and added to the granary. The difference is that you have income from fishing all year, not just in summer.

But mind that those acres are no longer used for traditional farming. Players without automatic only have the land acres for farming. Players with automatic don't get income from fishing. The will still get grain production in summer from those acres.

Wood and stone will be produced too. These will be required for new buildings in future. Wood and stones are new goods (now almost 100 tradeable goods) that can be produced and traded among players. Huge buildings like castles etc. will require a tremendous amount of those.

Plundering towns:

Pirates in Tales of Tamar have a new source of income. Ships with armies on board can now plunder towns and steal gold from their victim. Especially with big merchants, this is a lucrative income

Game start:

At the beginning, new players receive some wood, stones, weapons and light armor, to be able to defend themselves and build their first buildings.

Computer races:

The past has shown that especially small players have trouble with computer races, if they don't have a marketplace (to receive support) or barracks (to recruit troops) yet. In future, computer races will no longer attacks small players (<7 acres of land).

New input routines:

The first optimization of the input routines allowes players to edit entered text.

Settlers and scouts:

Settler and scouts now cost money. It could get expensive to have an umlimited amount of them now.

We hope you'll have mch fun with the new feature!

A belated happy new year from
