    I remember dialing up with an external 14.4kbs modem to a local BBS to play Legend of the Red Dragon. Before that my father dialed up with a 9600 baud to get on TENET, an early network for school teachers.

    The BBSes I frequented usually used the TAG BBS, but a few used Wildcat. I remember envying friends who had RIPTerminal graphics support because LORD had better looking ascii art in that. Haha.

    Is that a clone, or did you mean Legend of the RED Dragon?

    Yeah, it is a web-based version based off the old Legend BBS door game. It is actually entertaining...

    I used to assist running a CNet BBS on an Amiga 3000. Man, those were the days, what a great piece of BBS software I might add... way more functional than Wildcat, and the Amiga was such an underrated system. It had excellent multi-tasking at only 16Mhz! We played Trade Wars instead of LORD. ahhh..... I miss those days.
