Players send their turns to the server using the software client, the server computes the results and sends them back to the player. The fun is in interacting with the other players. Each player in this role playing game/rpg takes the role of the sovereign leader of a country and has to build from the small village to a large realm. You can trade, wage wars and use any diplomatic measure imaginable.

The term PBEM game describes the way a turn is handled through a server. It resembles the older play by mail games. In Tales of Tamar, the players send their turn to the server by means of a locally installed client. The process of transmitting the data is almost fully transparent to the players. They only need to know the address of their mail server, which is used the send the turns.


Tales of Tamar takes places in a fantasy world, not unlike the medieval legends. Side by side with humans, there are dragons, dwarves, elves, undead, orcs, mages, clerics and many more. Still, Tales of Tamar does not overdo it. We consider our fantasy world as rather conservative.

Medieval time:

Tales of Tamar is based on the European medieval age between 800 and 1300 AD.

Role playing game/RPG:

Tales of Tamar is a strategic role playing game/RPG. Our world is as interesting as you take on your role as a ruler and play this role throughout the game towards other players. We have players who live by trade, by war, by map making, as chronicler, explorer, pirates, etc. You can choose any role you like. The only limit in this game is the limit of your imagination.
