About

This is a rewrite of the classic BBS door game Legend of the Red Dragon version 4.00a by Seth Able Robinson.




History

Around 2013 a rewrite was created by The Mystical One (co-sysop of Nuklear Lord).
It fixed many of the bugs in Lord and allowed the game to be customized.
It allowed the server (written in C#) to run on a Linux VM under mono.
Users would be able to run the client directly, or connect to a hosted client on the Linux VM via telnet.
Unfortunately the project slowly died.

As player numbers declined at Nuklear Lord there was talk in the forums about the future of the site.
In early 2019 Nuklear Lord went offline.


Lord is reborn

This is a rewrite of the work done by The Mystical One, a lot of credit goes to Matt as it wouldn't have been possible without his work.
This web based version was rewritten to be connectionless, with a database backend and an ajax frontend.
Special care was taken to make it as close to the original 4.00a experience as possible.

The following is a list of changes made to this rewrite:

  • Gold gained is limited per level when killing a player. (team play prevention)
  • Gems gained is limited per level when killing a player. (team play prevention)
  • Players have the option to decline online battles in river, forest and mist realms. (duel kill prevention)

  • Players cannot enter the realm while engaged in an offline battle with another player. (player left alive fix)
  • Players on level 12 die in their sleep in forest, fire and mist realms. (camping prevention)
  • Players below level 12 who have more than 15 million exp die in their sleep in forest, fire and mist realms. (camping prevention)
  • Online duel battle look and feel has been made consistent with offline battles.

  • Horse death does 7500 hp damage to the dragon. (early horse kill prevention)
  • Inactive players will be resurrected at random times during the day rather than at the start of the day. (timezone advantage prevention)
  • Players below level 12 who have more than 15 million exp have their player fights reduced to 1 in forest, fire and mist realms. (exp pool depletion prevention)
