Legend of the Green Dragon
By Eric Stevens
"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 of the Green Dragon is new, with only a very few nods to the original game, such as the buxom barmaid, Violet, and the handsome bard, Seth.
"Although serious effort was made to preserve the original feel of the game, numerous departures were taken from the original game to enhance playability, and to adapt it to the web.
"LoGD is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL), which essentially means that the source code to the game, and all derivatives of the game must remain open and available upon request.
"You can download the latest version of LoGD at http://sourceforge.net/projects/lotgd and you can play the latest version at http://lotgd.net.
"LoGD is programmed in PHP with a MySQL backend. It is known to run on Windows and Linux with appropriate setups. Most code has been written by Eric Stevens, with some pieces by other authors (denoted in source at these locations), and the code has been released under the GNU General Public License.

"Users of the source are free to view and modify the source, but original copyright information, and original text from the about page must be preserved, though they may be added to."
"I hope you enjoy the game!"
