Notes edit...

Though Legend of the Red Dragon is not part of the genre of TradeWars-like games, it is included here because Seth Robinson has stated that he was motivated and influenced by TradeWars in developing LORD[1]. According to Seth,

"...a lot of things came from TradeWars of course, which is still my all time favorite door game.  My
friends and I played it VERY competitively back in the day. I actually cockily published a document 'How
to win at TradeWars', hmm, not sure what happened to it though.

Obvious things taken were the daily log with funny random sayings and the one-liner message board in the
tavern."

In 1998, John Pritchett, himself a big fan of Legend of the Red Dragon and Seth Robinson, approached Seth about purchasing LORD to port to his game server. Unfortunately, a mere one month earlier, Seth had sold the LORD rights to Game Port, coincidentally the same company where Pritchett, Gary and MaryAnn Martin had worked before leaving in 1994 to pursue game development.
