• BBS built-in RPG

    From Nopants@VERT/CITBBS to All on Fri Dec 10 09:07:00 2021
    Curious if anyone here is familiar with the Apple BBS software that had a RPG element built directly into the interface? While you could earn gold and exp for battles you won, you would lose your time for the day and disconnected if you lost. It was one of my favorite BBS experiences growing up.

    I've seen references to TPro but curious if anyone has direct experience with it from back in the day?

    I've heard of DNDBBS for pc clones but not this. Keep us updated if you find more!

    it would be easy to create a doorgame like this.
    i think people should be reverse enginnering games now if they have the time and the ability.

    Not something I'm familiar with either but it sounds intriguing!
