  1. -What is Cantr and who runs it?- Okay, so I posted this on the last forums but since they're gone I decided to repost. Cantr is a society builder, its pure text based, no graphics, ran completely by the community. The forums are open to make suggestions which are put into the game if the community like them and the devs are not paid. The game is ran purely off donations, however, if you choose to donate then you won't get anything out of it except being awesome. The game is free and browser based, it doesn't have any NPC's so every single character you see is an actual person playing it. -Game Rules- The game has no rules except stay in character and don't use glitches or bugs intentionally to gain an unfair advantage in the game, the game is always in development so not all features have been implemented yet. By stay in character I mean in character, you're playing as your character and have no knowledge of the 'real world' that we know, only the knowledge of the world of Cantr and not even that if you never learned it. You can have knowledge of everything that's in the wiki though. -What can I do in the world of Cantr?- Anything, you can be a pirate, a thief, a murderer, a tribal chief, a town mayor, or even the worlds greatest warlord. Literally anything you can think of and the only limitation you have is your imagination. -Cantr is tick based? What does that mean?- That mean that Cantr is ran in ticks, a timer is set for different types of projects and once that project timer ends you will be a certain percentage done with your task, this includes traveling on the roads to other towns. This does cause a huge problem for players who don't factor in that roads are extremely long and without the proper supplies such as an ample supply of food and potentially a weapon you could die before ever reaching another town, the reason is because if you hit another location but it's abandoned and no food around you could starve or if it's abandoned and you have no weapon and another player decides to kill you then you'll be in trouble.. Best bet would be to stay in town until you have the proper supplies (at least food) because I've only had one circumstance of being ambushed by marauders who promptly killed me and took my stuff. I will supply you with a neat little link that tells you all Cantr ticks and it even has a timer, it was provided to us through the community. http://joo.freehostia.com/cantr/ticks/ My suggestion is if you're going to travel, stock up until the ticks for land traveling are down into the seconds and then hit the road, it won't take as long to hit your first tick and thus won't take as long to travel. Also keep in mind that (VEHICLES OF SOME SORT SHORTEN TRAVEL) by how much actually depends on a variety of factors including carry weight that's currently being filled, type of vehicle, type of road, etc. -Other Cantr information- Cantr is a purely role play game, so it has mechanics, basic mechanics like burying dead bodies, an attack button and it can be confusing learning how the interface works so I would suggest checking out the wiki and forum while you're waiting for you account to be verified. The forums has a bunch of helpful tips and a really helpful community, sign up there and in the welcome area ask for some pro-tips to get you started and keep in mind traveling can be boring as it does take a pretty long time, so make sure that if you aren't the patient type you have another character to play or someone traveling with you.. You can have up to 15 characters and as soon as your account is verified you get 2 slots opened, the rest are locked but they open 1 each day that your account is active until you reach a max of 15 open slots. I would suggest starting with 2 characters and playing only two for a while until you feel comfortable you have the time and knowledge to play more than one at a time, otherwise it can get overwhelming as I learned the hard way. The moment you've all been waiting for (and probably most skipped to) here is the Cantr site with all the links you'll need. www.cantr.net If you don't want to read everything I wrote then in short, once you sign up while your account is being processed, sign up to the forums, check out the wiki and ask for some pro-tips on the forums because it can get confusing without some help. Don't be afraid to ask for help on the forums, there's a lot of helpful and nice people who can and will help you with any problem you encounter, some might already be answered so remember to use the search function and have fun!
