Family worth
only top 3 can see, and they only see their own family’s worth – designed to promote competition

Sotto + Consig can now be a successor to the Don

The Don can set 2 successors instead of 1

Capo’s can have a successor

Capodecina rank
Spot owners that have been in a position of leadership for a while(by having earned capomoney) and have ranked up to Bruglione promote to this special rank. Capodecinas are stronger than Brugliones

“Voyage Century” Brings You to Review the Sail Culture of 16 Century

As a voyage game, ships are necessary and play an important role in it. Viewing the whole human history, we will find that sail, as a tool of people conquering the oceans and rivers, was the carrier of the ocean culture. Without those ships, the ocean culture would lose its spirit. In the great voyage age in 16 century, people brought the western cultures to the East by dint of solid sailing vessels and cannons and carried treasures back ship by ship, which made all the Europeans pleasantly surprise and crazy, and when, the great voyage age really began to reach the top.

It is the “voyage century” that brought this spirit into full games. Consulting the true sail information of the 16 century, we catalogue the sails into 50 varieties in this game. Sails can be divided into sailing boat, oar ship, oar-sailing ship according to its motility and gunboat, merchant ship, corsair, hooker according to its functions, of which, oar-sailing ship is the favorite of the pilots. This kind boat has approximately ten more varieties with higher price and huge volume which is harmonious and unified with its holder—pilot in the whole. Concentratively reveals their same nature of braveness and peremptoriness. You can imagine on the endless sea, a huge oar-sailing ship with a skull and crossbones flag waving with the wind on the backstay speedily course toward you. In such circumstances, I think no matter what level your ship is or how many equipment you owned now, you will not help being moved and be attracted. You will imagine you are the owner of this ship and drive it on the vast ocean conquering the oceans and the whole world, from which you can get excitement to satisfy your overlord desire. Aren’t you eager to realize your dream?

However just as the old saying: “Diamond can cut diamond”, we won’t allow the pirates representing villainy be excessive arrogant. Among the countless ships, there are also many more advanced then pilots’. For example, Spanish square sailing ship, as stable as a mountain when sailing on the sea, was made of solid wood with 20 meters body height, 4 meters sea gauge and with more than 80 rooms of the cabin. Their capability of doing battle has reached to the top-ranking when armed with artilleries and bluejacket. Span, famous for the voyage, has its unique design to the ships. They combine foursquare sail with lateen sail which can make the ship advance and retreat freely in condition of both the tail wind and dead wind. Under the direction of a skilled sail operator, the speed of the ship can reach to 30 sea miles per hour. Its turning strength is also very good. How about it? Has it closed to your desire? How could you still be silent?

Voyage Century is at your service!

Pirate——the Most Disputable Character in Voyage Century

Pirate was a career with hundred of years’ history. As early as the Roma Empire, the rampant pirates were a great problem to the empire. With the development of industry and sea trade, the power and the domain of the pirates became more and more strong. The floruit of the great navigation age also creates the summit of the pirates. It was a time when most notorious pirates got their name. These pirates coveted the trading ships between Europe and the New World. They harmed the sea route and the trader’s interest greatly. It was also a time when the European Countries competed with each other for resources, colonies and supremacy. In order to achieve this, some European countries supported the pirates stealthily and ordered them to destroy the trade routes of their enemy. These pirates were Privateers. They were both pirates and soldiers. Their purpose of robbery was to serve their countries’ interest.

In Voyage Century, pirates are divided into two kinds, the professional pirate and the privateer. Players can choose their own pirate career according to their hobby and voyaging experience. If you want to be a professional pirate in Voyage Century, you have to join in a pirate gang first. Whether you can join in the pirate gang depends mainly on your notoriety and amity with the pirate gang. Your life style will be totally changed when you join the pirate gang. In order to become world-famous, you have to learn to grasp the good timing and geographical convenience, face with the menace from battleships on the sea, and avoid the jealous attack from the fellow. If you want to be a privateer in Voyage Century, the process is a little bit troublesome. According the Navigation Law, to become a privateer, you must be a victim of the piracy who was ever robbed by players of the other country. If you grip the evidence of his guilt, you can apply for a privateer license against the country that robbed you. With the privateer license in hand, you can rob the specified country in stipulated time without the restriction of the international law to make up for your loss. You must note that, your amity with the country you robbed will reduce greatly. And the players you robbed will also have the right to apply for a privateer license.

No matter from the point of your nation’s interest or the crave for wealth,pirate is always a disputable vocation. However, many people still yearn for the free and exciting life of pirates. Now, Voyage Century provides players a chance to experience a life full of excitement and romance.

Voyage Century is at your service.
