Faction Bio - Memento Mori

Report by IIIlusionist on 27/09/15 (8 days ago)

Memento Mori - an object kept as a reminder of the inevitability of death, such as a skull.

Sounds like a nice place does it not? A gloomy place filled with rotting carcases and crushed skulls of unfortunate by-passers, or a bunch of night people holding skulls waiting for their inevitable doom to come claim them comes to mind.

However, it turns out Memento Mori is just a name chosen for our next faction bio, who happen to be the complete opposite to the above description...well mostly.   

Memento Mori was created in 2009. It was bought by Tascon [209070] from Scampi [872103], along with UnFairlane [450963] and whiterose [365252]. The faction was initially named The Little House on the Prairie, and was to be a place of peace and tranquillity where Tascon and his close friends could relax and build on their stats. However, complaints from members that the name sounded to "wimpy" led to them changing the name to Memento Mori.

Memento Mori only started to war and chain when peaceful ...

Faction Bio - JFK

Report by IIIlusionist on 08/08/15 (1 month ago)

Over the years of Torn there have been few factions that people can say were the outright strongest faction at the time. There is normally a mix of factions fighting for top spot, which isn't a bad thing. In the past, the likes of BH, SUN, Inquest, Plague Family, Secret Service, PT-Family and 39th Street Killers have claimed, or were close to claiming,  top spot for a time. However, there are even fewer factions that can say they have shown they are class above the rest for a long period of time, perhaps only two. Some would say HT dominated the faction scene in the early faction days, and now Just Fer Killin (JFK).

Outkasts was where JFK stemmed from. In 2007, Outkasts were a mid-sized faction that didn't have the strongest players. Lacking the big stats and having a fair few members, made them a big target for larger factions to war and extort. So it wasn't long before Outkasts members came to the realisation that having a faction with only a few members would be a lot safer. This is because with fewer members it would be harder for larger fact...

Obsessive Compulsive Torn

Report by IIIlusionist on 13/07/15 (2 months ago)

Obsession: the domination of ones' thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire etc.

Everyone suffers from it at some point in their lives. It can be over women, men, food, work, education, thrills or games. It can be a dangerous thing, often hard to notice before you have been sucked in too far, with the claws of obsession clasped tightly around your mind. They can persist for years or vanish in an instant.

Gaming is an addictive endeavour which can often turn into somewhat of an obsession - Torn is no exception. But the question is where is the line between playing a game with a passion, and becoming obsessed with a game? This is a tough question to answer, and views will differ greatly among players.

Looking at Torn; there are some players that begin to twitch when they know they are on full energy and who set alarms to train. Is this obsession? Or is it just trying to progress in the game quicker - after all, training takes just ten seconds. Other players laugh at those who set alarms, but at the same t...
