To bail or to bust
Torn's jail has long been known as the laughing stock of the city, with inmates often only finding themselves in jail for seconds, whilst others are frantically trying to bust or bail them out.
People may be wondering, why are people frantically bailing and busting inmates? Well, there are merits for bailing people out of jail, and others are trying to rack up thousands of busts to become a suitable candidate for the faction organized crime, Political Assassination.
A number of changes brought to Torn's jail system have made it harder to escape, whether it's from a bust or bail. Criminals caught have been landed with much longer jail sentences, which have made busting much harder, as criminals with longer jail times find themselves in max security prisons. This also means bail fees have rocketed with prisoners serving longer sentences, and has found citizens scrambling all over the city for a Lawyers Business Card.
There was also a significant change to the cost to a player for attempting a bust, previously i...
Faction Bio - Little Stompers
Jumping away from the dizzying heights of HT, we come to the crazy world of Little Stompers.
Little Stompers are one of those factions that even at a low rank made a huge ruckus, and it wasn't just from them stamping their feet and making a mess (although from what this reporter gathers from members, TheCheesinater  does a lot of that). This reporter was also impressed as soon as he started interviewing them, as they were the only faction he interviewed that remember the exact day that the faction was created: 7 June 2013. TheCheesinater created the faction and when he and other members were interviewed about how the name was chosen, he gave two different answers.
The first is the marketable version: The name is kind of representative of what we stand for. We're small in stature but, somehow, manage to throw our weight around. Then there is the, well, lets say 'lackluster' version: It was a simple online generator which gave us the name. Out of fear of getting another more mysterious answer, we laid it to rest (though, this repo...
Know your city - Good ol' Days
Torn was created in the year 2003 and since its creation it has seen many changes and additions to the game. Torn has come a long way since being created. This article will look at some of the game mechanics and features that have been revolutionised over the years.
We will begin by looking at Energy and Nerve, which are the two things that the game revolves around. Energy has many different uses; training, attacking, reviving and searching, and it is up to each player to decide what they want to do with it. Till recently, nerve had one use only, which was to commit crimes. Now busting has started consuming nerve rather than energy. As frequent fliers may know, energy used to be called Awake. This was because at the time Torn started Awake was a common name used in text based games.
"I later thought it made more sense to use energy. I saw it used on a mech-bot type game in the machine sense, and thought it'd work a lot better here in terms of the bodily sense."
