Wow, it's almost been 15 years since I launched my first bulletin board system (BBS) to run the popular door game Legend of the Red Dragon (LORD). Legend of the Red Dragon was a text-based role-play game where multiple players play to advance their skills, and eventually kill the red dragon. Around the fall of 1995, I decided to create a winter version of LORD. This version included new text, monsters and events. The winter version appeared on many other bulletin boards, and much to my surprise a couple people actually sent the suggested $2.00 donation. I never cashed the cheques, they remain in my office today.
