Thermalright Ultra 90 Giveaway - LORD Competition!

Alright guys, as you may know Nick is receiving an Ultra-90 from Jab-Tech for review. Once the review is complete Jab-Tech asked that we raffle off the heatsink to a forum member, I thought this was a great idea!

So to determine who gets the heatsink I am going to hold a LORD competition. LORD being Legend of the Red Dragon, a 15+ year old text-based RPG, possibly the best RPG ever created. This game was the most popular BBS door game back in the day, and I can remember spending countless hours playing. I have setup a telnet BBS named FragNet BBS for the competition.

The winner will be determined exactly 30 days from now. The player with the highest experience (excluding myself, and 2 of my friends who have been playing locally) will be the winner.

To access the BBS follow these steps:
  • Click "Start"
  • Click "Run"
  • Type in "telnet"
  • Type in "open bbs.fragtek.com"

Now you are connected to the BBS. From here you MUST register for a new account. Type "New" at the prompt and answer all of the questions TRUTHFULLY. Once you have created your new account and logged on, press enter until you get to the main menu. From here press the "D" key to take you to the door section, on the next screen press "2" for Games, and then finally press "1" to start playing LORD!

It's fairly simple to figure out, it's a text based RPG, play it, love it, win it!

REPORT BACK HERE WITH YOUR LORD USERNAME SO THAT I MAY KEEP TRACK OF THE SCORES BETTER! GOOD LUCK!

I haven't had anyone else experience that error, I will have a look at it late tonight when I get in.

The server is running on the windows standard port 23 and is wide open to the world.

Anyone started playing yet???
