Due to a variety of factors including price, availability and innovation, such as the unprecedented concept of "Heroic Energy", in a short time Tagmar became a success and gathered a large fan base.During the 1990s, the "world" of Tagmar was enlarged through the publication of complementary books such as the "Creatures Book" (Livro de Criaturas) and "The Empire" (O Império). These books provided details on the appearance, skills and habitat of the creatures of Tagmar as well as information about new geographic regions. This success continued until 1997 when the publisher GSA closed down leaving Tagmar to stagnate. (en)
