Legend of the Green Dragon is a remake of and homage to the classic BBS Door game, Legend of the Red Dragon (aka LoRD)
LoGD is programmed in PHP with a MySQL backend. It is known to run on Windows and Linux with appropriate setups. The core code is actively written by Eric Stevens and JT Traub, with some pieces by other authors (denoted in the source at these locations), and the code has been released under a Creative Commons License. Users of the source are bound to the terms therein.
Gameplay is through clicking on links to do various actions. Players fight monsters in a forest to gain experience and money, in order to gain in levels and purcharse better weapons and armour. When the player gets to level 15, they can then hunt for the dragon and kill it. Killing it results in a new game plus with a slight enhancement of stats and options to choose a different race.
