For those who remember wasting many an hour on BBS's with LORD, then get your fix here

Its a web based version, is almost the same game with some minor changes to avoid any copyright issues etc :)

Hope to see some of you there as regulars :)

Damn you Gav, it's back offline! (Though that's probably a good thing considering how I used to get into LORD lol)

It was called Phoenix BBS.. ran in Hawke's Bay for around 5 or so years during the mid 90's I believe. (seems like a lifetime ago now!)
