LORD is a text based role-playing game which was popular in the 1990s on BBS systems. Before the Internet was well known, dial-up BBS's were the public's main connection to the online world with message forums, ANSI art galleries, downloadable files, and of course, games.
This site, built in the year 2000, was meant to demonstrate the possibility of running MS-DOS based BBS software on a modern Linux system under the DOS Emulator. Its popularity grew rapidly, and Nuklear LORD now hosts a strong community of dedicated LORD players.
Nuklear LORD's Admin, Co-Admin, and many original players were members of a loose-knit group of tech enthusiasts from an area north of Pittsburgh, PA in the USA. Originally based around local area BBS's, IRC eventually became the primary online meetingplace. Some of this crowd may still be found on #pittsburgh on EFnet.
