This is a rewrite of the classic BBS door game Legend of the Red Dragon version 4.00a by Seth Able Robinson.
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.
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:
Free use of weapons and armour regardless of level (camping allowed), no online battles without prior agreement.
Weapons restricted to certain levels, no online battles without prior agreement, the dragon will kill campers.
Weapons restricted to certain levels, online battles allowed, the dragon will kill campers.
Same as River realm but stats outside the game are delayed one day.
Generally the site should only be down if the host is having problems, and will come back once they fix their issue.
