When you first start playing on a Travian: Kingdoms server you will get beginners protection (BP). The BP lasts up to 7 days, but this depends on whether you start as king or governor. As a king, you get 1 day beginners protection, as a governor it’s up to 7 days. As soon as you hit the 200 population mark or crown yourself king, your BP automatically ends. You can switch from king to governor or the opposite way whenever you want with only the two limits listed below:
a) If you choose to be king in the tutorial, you have to wait till the beginners protection of the king ended. Only then you are able to abdicate.
b) Each coronation takes an additional 24h, so the first one is instant, the second 24h and so on.
If you switch from a king to a governor you will get back the remaining time of your BP as well, so you can just try out being king and then switch back to governor and still have what is left of your BP.
- There is no way to extend BP after these 7 days. To leave it early just crown yourself as a king or reach 200 population.
Inactive Player: If a player becomes inactive during the beginners protection, the protection will be gone. For players with less than 100 population this will be after 3 days.
Still in beginners protection (BP) but getting attacks? In case you see incoming raids or attacks on yourself or one of your governors despite still having BP these attacks are sent by robbers. Robber camps and hideouts spawn from time to time in the kingdom. Hideouts can only be seen by a specific governor. If you miss to clear them, they will start sending attacks on you. But do not fear. In the beginning those attacks and hideouts are very weak.
