Here's all you need to do to start playing TriadCity:
Step 1: Join SmartMonsters.
Simple: just click
and fill in the form. This is where you create your
SmartMonsters login, choose your password, tell us your e-mail
address, and the usual stuff. When you revisit our Web site in the
future, you'll use this member ID and password to log in, giving you
access to all the private member-only areas, including TriadCity.
Step 2: Create a TriadCity character.
Your Characters are the fictional personae you assume when you
interact with the TriadCity game world. Whenever you visit Triad,
you'll do so in character. You can create as many characters as you
like, but only one of them can visit TriadCity at a time. Click
here to fill in the
form. (Make sure you've completed Step 1 first.)
Step 3: Set up your browser.
In the modern world there's not much required here. All current
major browsers handle TriadCity with no special effort.
Step 4: Learn the Basic Commands.
You really only need to know about 15 commands to get started
with TriadCity. The complete Command Reference is
here. Check out
the section called "Basic Commands".
