[Note: The BBS was reset on March 3rd, 2014. All games and user accounts were reset.]
The House of Lunduke BBS is a little shrine to the glory that is BBSing.
Specifically: Games. Wonderful, awesome, glorious BBS games.
When you log in to the House of Lunduke you will not find a vast expanse of files to download. There are plenty of great websites dedicated to just such a need. In fact, the only message forums you will find are dedicated to the games being played at House of Lunduke.
Games like TradeWars 2002, Legend of the Red Dragon, LORD 2, The Pit, Barren Realms Elite and Exitilus. The classics.
You can access the House of Lunduke directly from this website using the Flash terminal.
Or you can access the BBS using any Telnet program (I suggest SyncTerm, my favorite telnet client for properly enjoying the BBS experience) at bbs.lunduke.com.
A few details on what the House of Lunduke is running:
- Hardware = Dual core virtual machine. The BBS used to be running on a dedicated Eee PC 900 (That’s right, a multi-line BBS server running on one of the first Eee Netbooks)… then the old netbook died.
- Software = Virtual Advanced BBS (A classic from “Back in the day”).
- Number of Nodes = 20 (20 people online at once)
