SHAMELESS SELF PLUG...

Back in the BBS days I loved this game...I called around to my favourite 20 or so BBSs and had my daily turn on each :)

I -did- always want to rewrite it as a much more complex game, but never got the time or energy.

omg, bbs flashbacks. I used to rule at that game!

That Violet was such a gold-digging little tramp.

This is so exciting! It's a brilliant reminder of the days of 486 PCs, 2400 baud modems, and late nights spent playing LORD on four or five different BBSes.

I loved LORD. (Had it installed on my BBS.) But found myself playing Usurper which was a more advanced.

Now I just play World of Warcraft.

Pah... TradeWars 2002 is where it's at!

I'm with PenDevil. If only someone would code up a more complex version (more customizable ships!).

WWIV 4 EVR!

From my first day in lotgd:

"You strap your Fists to your back and head out for some adventure."

Ah, the carefree life of the roving escapologist...

Why, rachsumat, WHY? I'll never be able to tear myself away... it's 1993 all over again.

Thanks, rachsumat. All a game needs to make it successful in my office is moderately acceptable game play and, most importantly, an excel spreadsheet skin.

The excel version of UT2k6 is going to rock!

I am so unbelievably happy now. Thank you, rachsumat.

Sweet, how beautiful. I loved LORD, that and Barren Realms Elite. So many hours wasted on so many BBSe.s

Great links. I used to host a LORD game on my own BBS oh so many years ago.

I set up an instance on my server a few months ago... It's just not the same. *single, wistful tear*

Ah, the good old days. At least once a year I wax nostalgic and end up logging into Acad's BBS, which runs 20 or so LORD games at any given time, including a lot of the IGMs, which extend the game nicely.

Kick ass rachsumat!!! I remember the good ole days (probably the only time in my life where I >HAD< to wake up early and kill everyone) of 2400 baud modems and running a bbs; Great work!

Young whippersnapper. Think "pre-8086 computers, 300 baud modems, and late nights spent playing LORD on four or five different BBSes."

I miss Galactic Empire and Inifinity Complex the most :(

Oh wait.. what am I talking about... TeleArena was where it was at!

(and Mutants, and Trivia, and SIGs... OMG, too many flashbacks all at once)

Of course, others have already said this, but I spent my time on pre-8086 computers, monochrome monitors, 300 baud modems, no hard drive (5.25" floppies)....

COMit was the best of the dial-up terminal programs :)

And downloading porn gifs and using a special program to display them on my Hercules monchrome monitor and having to stand on the other side of the room and squint in order to see what the heck was going on.

Ah, this brings back memories indeed. A while back when searching for BBSs I could telnet to in order to play LORD, I stumbled across this little gem. Played for a few weeks, but somehow in the midst of modern games, it had sadly lost its appeal it held when I was but a wee lad and my rents couldn't understand why they couldn't answer the phone when another BBS called the house.

For those who are interested, Seth Able Robinson still makes excellent video games. He lives over here in Japan with his wife. Their site is locate here at Robinson Technologies

Can you bring back Epic, too?

I remember playing via ripterm and feeling extra cool because I got all the snazzy graphics.

Ripterm was awesome. Like Flash for a BBS.
