The number of the purchased tickets is unlimited. A lucky ticket, one for all the realms, is drawn every hour. The winner is rewarded with a gold amount equal to his 100-hour production.

Gamemaster  

The in-game symbolic presence of Imperia Online administration appearing as a source of a system message. Gamemaster's messages contain official announcements on behalf of Imperia Online team regarding upcoming events, news or successful diamond purchases. They are received in orange envelopes and are saved in System tab of Messages menu, labeled Gamemaster.

NB! Do not confuse real Gamemaster system messages with random ill-intentioned messages sent by a regular player with a name similar to gamemaster, admin, administration, Imperia Online etc, received in a green envelope and located in the Private message's inbox, aiming to obtain personal information, such as your password, or mislead the players encouraging them to send dubious sms about non-existing diamonds. Always bear in mind that Imperia Online will neither ask you for personal data nor lead diamond purchase propaganda via private message.

Imperia Online team recommends immediately reporting all malicious messages of that kind and commits to permanently block the ill-intentioned users responsible for them.

Garrison  

Garrison determines the number of troops that can be stationed inside your Fortress. Any non-Garrisoned troops in the Holding will meet the enemy in Field Battle if the Holding comes under attack.

The size of your Garrison equals the Fortress level's Base Garrison plus any enhancement from the Military Architecture Technology or the Garrison Tactician General Skill.

Troops stationed in the Garrison do not incur Upkeep and are unaffected by Morale loss during Fortress Siege. Archer units have their Attack greatly enhanced when Garrisoned. Siege Engines occupy Garrison slots equal to their Operating Crew.

During battle Garrisoned troops are only deployed in two Battle Lines: Frontline and Artillery Line. The Garrison Frontline has no Divisions and it's composed of all Garrisoned Cavalry and Infantry.

During Fortress Assault Garrisoned troops can only be attacked by enemy Archers and suffer only 20% of their Attack. Enemy Archers prioritize the Garrison Frontline over the Garrison Artillery Line.

During Fortress Assault only Garrisoned Archers and Artillery can attack the enemy.
