MightyE tells you, "Legend of the Green Dragon is a remake of and homage to the classic BBS Door game, Legend of the Red Dragon (aka LoRD) by Seth Able Robinson."
"LoRD is now owned by Gameport (http://www.gameport.com/bbs/lord.html), and they retain exclusive rights to the LoRD name and game.
That's why all content in Legend o' th' Green Dragon be new, with only a very few nods t' th' original game, such as th' buxom barmaid, Violet, an' th' handsome bard, Seth."
"Although serious effert was made t' preserve th' original feel o' th' game, matey, numerous departures were taken from th' original game t' enhance playability, matey, an' t' adapt it t' th' web."
