Castle Kzin
(1983-1993)
B'lithWWIV
"Used WWIV-NET to great advantage as the BBS was mostly Fantasy Role Playing Game oriented. Iron Horse's Hz Castle, Shotar's Castle Mythril, and Black Dragon's Black Dragon Enterprises (BDE) boards were closely associated and linked with common boards and online games that were similar. Castle Kzin had regular breakfast meetings that were well attended and held at "Roys Mill" on Sepulveda Blvd (Torrance) just East of Maple and West of Crenshaw. These meetings were very important to some of the growing technical minds of the area and were fun for everyone. One of our users (Lone wolf) was a real loner, and due to lack of communication on several levels committed suicide in the late 80's. There were extra efforts made after that time to offer discussion to anyone who felt too alone, or in trouble to share, even one-on-one and avoid that kind of teenage loss." - B'lith

ShotarWWIV
"The BBS was mostly Fantasy Role Playing Game oriented. BBS physically was on border with next zone so many messages were passed freely from one zone to next at no cost. Also called once a night overseas to get messages. Regularly attended Castle Kzin breakfast meetings. Many discussions on games, gaming, and writing of programs occurred as well." - Shotar

"MW has a web page at http://thenewhouse.org/mw , sort of in effigy but I do keep updating the picnic page with each year's picnic info. (the millipicnics started around 1992 and have continued past the lifespan of the BBS itself.)

you can get all kinds of info about mw (including pictures and some of the public textfiles from its early days) off the webpage." - Joseph
