[GAME] Torn - a free text based multiplayer RPG

Post by Perturbee » 29 Jun 2019, 12:41

Hi,

For the past several days I've gotten into playing Torn. It is a somewhat "dark" crime text base RPG with plenty of opportunities to do what you want.
The focus is heavily on trading and doing crime, but it's much more than that. There is an interesting way of trading items, but also collecting stuff (for hoarders like me). The New Players chat tends to be a bit toxic from time to time, I recommend joining this discord server for newbies instead. There is also another friendly discord server which hosts a lot of lotteries, which enables you to gain extra money or items. Winning a couple of lotteries certainly gave me a big leg up at the start. Don't waste your money in the in-game casino, it's hard to win anything there.

The game is completely free, but there are subscriber perks. It's NOT pay to win.

It's adviced to work on your statistics in the gym as much as you can. At the same time try to trade as much as possible by buying stuff from town (empty boxes at the post office or lollipops at the sweets shop) and sell them with significant profit on the item market. Don't get into a faction too quickly, look around and get to know people. While you do have a 14 day newbie attacking protection, other newbies can still attack and mug you, so keep investing your money in stuff that sells easily. My favourite thing to do on the side is racing. You can buy a Class E car for around $10,000 and participate in races without affecting your stats. Each race earns you a little bit of skill, so you will get better at it over time. You can decide to upgrade your car, but you don't have to. That is more important in the higher classes. I spent most my time on trading and racing, while continuously building my stats.
It is a bit of a waiting game, you do things at certain times, then wait for the next opportunity to do more.

You can play it in a browser or an app on your phone. Feel free to friend me there and have a chat (I'm Perturbee there too). I'm online during European daytime.

If you think this might be fun for you too, join by clicking the above link, that will also help me out with a few bonus items.

If you have questions, feel free to ask here or in-game. I have a few guides that help you and of course my own experience.
