Special thanks to Joseph Masters for some of the information in this file.


Much of the original cheat information was provided by Thanh Tran, who has moved on to bigger and better fish to fry. :) Thanks Napalm Runner, I'll always be grateful.

My Most Special thanks goes to Bryan Turner SysOps of RabbitLand II Dallas, TX for believing in me, when I didn't even know I existed! Thanks Sunshine!! ;)

You are free to upload this file to any BBS and/or share it with your friends. All the author request is that nothing be taken out of context without due credit to the author, and that nothing be altered in any way.

THE ORIGINAL CHEAT: Find the bum, and give him some money. Type in -2,000,000,000 for your amount. You will be given 2 billion in hand. The second version fixed the "old man" but not the cheat that has to do with giving more money than you have to one of the two children in the Adoption Agency. With this one just make sure that you bet more money than you have, and that includes everything in the LORD bank as well as in hand with the little boy, or give to the little girl. Exit the IGM, then exit the game, when you return you will have 2 billion gold in hand.

When it comes to good cheat-proof IGMs, Aragon's Timer usually makes the list...not anymore! Here's how to do the cheat: You'll need another player's cooperating with you. If you think that no-one else has played Aragon's Timer today, you should enter and exit the IGM alone without playing the game to make sure the data file is reset. Once you have done that, both of you should enter Aragon's Timer. You play the game; your partner doesn't. You exit back to LORD first, then your partner exits to LORD (Precise timing is a must, since you may not be able to talk to each other.) Now that you're both in LORD, it's time to go back to Aragon's Timer. Both of you enter Aragon's Timer. Your partner plays the game; you don't. Your partner exits Aragon's Timer first, then you exit Aragon's Timer second. The result: If you're both good at Aragon's Timer, both of you have increased your wealth by 50%. Here's the cool part: if you followed the above instructions, Aragon's Timer will have NO record of either of you playing the game! That's right...both of you can go back and play Aragon's Timer FOREVER!...or until you run out of time...or the sysop catches you. :) This worked for me locally under Aragon's Timer 1.0. (I had two LORD games running under two different windows in win3.11.) I don't know of any updates to Aragon's Timer. **Seems like a lot of trouble to me. Kit :>**

**::UPDATE FROM STANLEY CHIU...the Gentleman Genius::**
The `s code has never worked in ALADDIN'S PALACE not even in version 1.25 and older. (Mike Neale also told me this, I just did not click to what I was being told. SF) First of all, I'll elaborate on the weapon/armor situation. If you sell your weapon, you'll get the money, plus you keep the strength of that particular weapon. The same holds true for the armor. Another thing is how to get two billion gold as often as you want. Of course, Iago will only visit you once per day... but you can arrange it so that you can make him come at anytime. =) All you need to do is change your name, either in the IGM, or with the bartender - it doesn't matter. Upon re-entering the IGM, it will think it is your first time in, so it will give you all the random events again. Of course, then you can get the two billion gold as many times as you wish. NOTE: If you win the negative two billion bet with Iago, you don't go into negative, but rather, you get two hundred million and something gold. So it's still enough to buy a Blood Sword and a Golden Armor...which would do just fine, unless you're REALLY greedy.

Of course, when you change your name in Aladdin's Palace, you can also train again, so you can gain additional skill points for Thieving, Mystics and Death Knight. Also, with this, you can go OVER the regular 40 maximum skill points that LORD allows. For example, I believe I have 55 Mystic use points, and 46 Thieving skill points. The formula for that is simply the number of points divided by five, so I start the day off with 9 Thieving uses. As the number of skill points increase, the uses do also. Lastly, you can change your name inside Aladdin's Palace to just color codes, i.e., `1`4`!`$, which will make attacking you by others IMPOSSIBLE. They will have absolutely no way of bringing your name up in the prompt.

I can only assume at this writing, that he is speaking of 1.25. Careful when you attempt any of the cheats for Aladdin's, its many repair's has caused it to become a time bomb, almost everything you do and can do, depends on what version you have available to you.

**::NEW INFORMATION Supplied by Mike Neale::**
Every time you go into Aladdin's palace, try selling a fairy, even if you don't have one. It will buy your fairy every time you enter, even if it's more than once a day! Another thing that I learned from an earlier version regards buying and selling a weapon. Buy a Wan's Weapon from the regular shop and sell it in Aladdin's Palace. Then go back to the regular shop and do it all over again. As many times as you want. What happens is, you buy the weapon for 1m and it 'says' it offers you 500k when you sell it. It actually gives you 5m! PLUS keep an eye on your strength column! Every time you buy and sell the Wan's Weapon, your strength keeps going up accordingly.

*** All of these bugs mentioned are in previous ***
*** versions of Aladdin's Palace. FREQ "ALADDIN" ***
*** from 1:140/129, to *** receive Version 2.00 - ***
*** which fixes all of these bugs, and much more ***

In the older versions, you can sell negative gems. Sell -32000 gems, and you will be given 32000 of them. You can then take them back to the regular LORD and trade them in for strength, defense, and hit points. Although it's pretty slow on the 3.26 version... on v3.50+, it's easy and fast to get 32000 strength, defense, and hit points. On v3.26, go back to LORD, go to the bank, you'll notice a negative amount in your bank account. This is okay... leave the bank, return, and you'll have 100 gold on hand. [Try leaving the game completely to see if you can get the 2 billion.] Go back to the Castle of the LORD, sell the 32000 gems for 32,000,000 gold. Go back to LORD, put all the gold into your bank account and repeat this procedure over again for another 32 million gold. It does get tedious, but worth it in the end. THIS HAS BEEN REPAIRED: Please do this author the courtesy of using only the most recent release of his works on your BBS.

RUMOR CONFIRMED: by Mark Wilson of Computer Odyssey Mark says he doesn't know which version is running. There is only two, the one that you can get the -32,000 gems + gold from, and the one that fixes that. Mark says: Go to the Jeweler's Shop and buy 29,999 gems (positive!) it will tell the price is negative 1.5 billion. Say yes and exit back to LORD and you'll have Positive 1.5 billion gold and 29,999 gems. Use either exit bank or exit game to get rid of negative gold.

Terry Phillip Cunningham's version: When you go into the Castle of LORD, buy 32000...NOT -32000. Then leave the place all together without doing anything, exit "O"ther Places, then go to the nothing. Leave the bank and view your will have like 1,000,000,000. gold AND 320 gems.

Go to the bank and deposit -2000000000 it will give it to you on hand.

The negative flow applies again. Just bet in the negative the gross amount you'd like to scam, then lose. THIS HAS BEEN REPAIRED: Please do this author the courtesy of using only the most recent release of his works on your BBS.

**LORD HUNTER** - enter in negative gold.

If you exit and re-enter it, your Arena Fights go back up to 25... so, supposing you have enough time, you can beat the game in ONE day.

Enter the store and ask to buy anything. When it asks how much you want say 100,000. It will say that it will charge you -$xxxxxxx (A lot of cash). Agree and you will come out of the store with TONS of cash. For example if you had 800 strength and you bought 100,000 strength you would end up with -30,000 strength and about 100 mil. To make it go positive buy another 100,000. You will end up with 2500 strength. But be careful though, because you can start to go into negative cash. If that happens just buy or sell 100,000 forest fights until positive again. This trick basically gives you anything you want! You can get HUGE amounts of charm, and using the change sex option, you can marry both Seth Able and Violet.

From: Stanley Chiu
Go in Love Shack, and go to the Lounge or Bar or whatever. Order the most expensive drink. It SHOULD say that a thief comes and knocks you out, and steals all your money. This is GOOD. It takes away the amount of gold you ORIGINALLY had on hand, NOT after you have bought the drink. Let's say you had 25,000 gold to start with and the drink costs 10,000 gold. After your purchase you have 15,000 gold left. The IGM is programmed to take away 25,000 gold, because it probably recorded that figure first, and that is probably where the mistake is. By this happening, you now have -10,000 gold in hand. You now exit the IGM, then exit the LORD game. The next time you enter LORD, you will have 2 billion gold on hand. IF you go into the bank before you exit the game, you will cancel your negative gold in hand, and be given $100. gold.

Negative Gold notes. As long as the sysop is using a current version of LORD, such as 4.06 and 4.07, negative stats such as Gold in Hand and Experience are reset to zero as soon as the player returns to LORD from an IGM. All IGMs released by me automatically fix most negative, and some over-range, LORD stats when you enter or exit them. Donald. 06/20/06.

This information can be obtained first hand by opening and removing the LORDSTRC.PAS from the LORD ZIP. This information comes directly from Seth Able himself, for those who want to make LORD IGM's.

MESSAGE FROM KITERIA: Account number is something only the SysOps' will have access to, therefore, anything involving the <account num> will be of no use to the average person. Basically these mail codes are of little use, except where you can change the name of your weapon and/or armor. Using the forward slash (`) and a code such a S for skills, you will change the weapon name with it to something of at least four characters long. You can color code as well, just do not go over the allotted spaces for weapon/armor name or the game will seize up. Then each time you view your stats, you will raise the number of: kids, charm, skills, and lays, and what ever else that you can make work. Those listed are the only one's I'm aware of....I might also mention that each and every one IS case sensitive....if it calls for a capital S then a capital S is what you must use.

`b<amount> this deposits the amount in the readers bank account.
`G<amount> this puts the amount in the readers 'money in hand'.
`E<amount> this adds to the readers experience by amount.

`P <account num> Indicates <account num> wants to propose to reader
`O <account num> Begins an online battle with <account num> (Don't use this!)
`c clear's, home's the screen and goes down two lines

If the game is registered, then press "c" when the first "MORE" prompt pops up. Enter "noisullI fO rorriM" (Mirror Of Illusion backwards) and pick the 2429 Town. You will be able to bet on fights. Place a bet of "- 2000000000" gold and hope you will lose the fight. If not, you will still get over 200 million gold...but not the 2 billion. If you are satisfied, then leave...if not, stay and continue to try and get your 2 billion gold.

Go to the IGM bank, and DEPOSIT -2000000000, return to the LORD bank, then exit. You now have 2 billion gold in the bank, and 200,000,000 in your hand. If you chose to not go for that much gold, you can place a withdraw of -2000000000, and this will give you the same amount in the positive. You can also go to the Dolphin Rest Inn, talk to the bartender, tip him -1000000000 and he'll give it back in the positive.

Go into the IGM with no money, go to the bazaar and buy slave children it will cost a negative amount, with that you GET the gold and the child. I believe this only works for Level 7 and above.

In the section for Mystical Skills, if you are allowed to start first, choosing 1, 2, 7, & 4 will win every time. If the old man starts first, 8, 9, 3, & 6 will win every time.

There are several different versions of this IGM, don't just automatically sell everything and jump in there thinking you are going to make billions in minutes. TEST THE WATERS!!

ORIGINAL VERSION: You can sell your armor and weapon in the LORD game and go into Sandtiger's and sell your "fists" and "nothing" for around 2.4 million each. Then you go back to the LORD game weapon and armor shop, sell the Sandtiger's weapon and armor, go back and do it again. It's very easy to make big money in this version.

SECOND VERSION: Start this when you are LEVEL 1 and ready to sell your armor. Remember, check it out first, because of the different versions. Have only $1500 gold, "fist" for weapon, (this one doesn't work on armor.) Go to the shop and sell your weapon, IF the salesman doesn't ask you if you want to sell your "fist" for a quoted amount, then purchase it 19 more times, (that's 20 all together) Napalm does it for 40. Then exit the IGM, go into the bank, do nothing, exit the bank then return. You should have 200,000,000. gold in the bank now. IF you have a negative amount in hand and nothing in the bank, exit the IGM and then go back in, that will give you 2,000,000,000. gold. Be sure that when you start this you only have $1500. in the bank do not have any more or any less or it will not work. With the gold you make from these two versions, you can purchase your stats, and skills and charm for very little gold.

THIRD VERSION: This one has to be started at level 1, it will not give you big gold, but it will give you level 12 stats by the time you are at Level 7. Sell armor and weapon, go to Sandtiger's IGM and purchase "Sling Shot" and "Lead Pan". The purchase price is $500. go to LORD weapon and armor shop and sell each for $1500. With this version, you make a profit and your stats go up each time you purchase, and they do not drop when you sell. Stick with the first and second weapons and armors, otherwise you'll be spending more than your making.

FOURTH VERSION: At level one, when you are ready to sell your armor, sell it in the LORD game, then go to Sandtiger's, armor dealer, and see if he will buy your "nothing" for a tidy sum. If so, have at least enough gold to purchase a "Sling Shot" based on what amount the old woman's exchange of 'bar coin's to gold coins' is. Sell your "nothing" to the armor dealer and go purchase a Sling Shot. Leave the IGM, go to the LORD weapon's dealer sell the Sling Shot. Return to Sandtiger's armor dealer, sell your "nothing" purchase a Sling shot again, go back to the LORD weapon's dealer again, sell the sling shot again...etc...etc. Got it? Your strength keeps going up and not dropping, plus you keep selling "nothing" for all that gold.

"At Sandtiger's Bar, I've heard of this trick, but you'll have to try it. Get a fairy. Go to the place there where you can buy fairies. The command for buying fairies (f) will not be there since you have one, but press "f" anyway. Although it will say you can't do it, don't worry. Do it again (the "f" thing). Then, go to the bank TWICE and if all goes well, you should have some more money."

Status #1: The original IGM, by Joseph Masters, now belongs to Michael Preslar. A new version has not been released, but you can get an RTE200 patch,, from me or from Michael for it. Status #2: The clone IGM is abandoned. Its author can not be located. Even after RTE200 patching, the IGM ( remains unusable due to RTE 104 problem. Status #3: There is an un-released LORD for Windows BETA IGM version available from Michael Preslar, however it is a dead IGM because the creator, Chris Martino, vanished in late May 2005 without sending its source code to Michael. 06/20/06 Notes.

Sell your experience for lots of cash and buy strength, defense, and hit points in return. In the original version the negative cheat can be used. When asked for how much of an item you want, pick a negative number and see if it works. If it doesn't work, then you will have to use the selling of experience route.

(Napalm Runner's Version)
Go to any of the little area's in there. When asked for your percentage of ingredients, type in any numbers that end up with a value of 100. For example, you would type in -32000 for the first one, and 32100 for the second one, and 0 for the rest. More then likely, you will be offered to buy it at a negative amount, and if you pick the right percentages, you will also get the special attribute also, like the strength, defense, hit points, experience, and/or charm. This works great in the "Bathroom", because after you've exhausted your number of buys, return to the previous menu then go back in, and start buying again.

KITERIA'S VERSION: Go into the bathroom, select 99 of Purple Pedals, and 0 to the rest, it will say it cost a negative amount, say yes and you will GET that money plus what you are purchasing. This works with every one of the "Bathroom" item's except Goober Grass. Every forth time, you must leave the bathroom, but you can go right back in. THIS HAS BEEN REPAIRED: Please do this author the courtesy of using only the most recent release of his works on your BBS.

When you are given the option of either trading in your weapon or armor for another one, do not trade up for a better weapon/armor. If you do it will only make you weaker. You are given the weapon/armor, but not the strength and defense associated with it. Trade in for a weaker weapon or armor if possible. That way, when you sell your weapon/armor for a better one, you will not lose as much strength/defense. This will make more sense once you start doing it. You can rack up tons of strength and defense this way.

Enter with at least 1 gold. Go to the gambling area, and wager a negative amount of gold. Depending on what level you are on, is important as to how much you should wager. When asked to pick a number between 1 and ten, pick "11". You'll lose. Continue for the rest of your turns. With the money you just earned, enter the Wizard's area. CAUTION: If you are at a low level, and you bet a very high amount, you should go and deposit the gold in the LORD bank, and other banks as well if available. If you don't, when you enter the Wizard's area, it will immediately throw you into the negative, forcing all your purchases to be NEGATIVE. This is not good. This IGM is so choked with easy cheating, that you can cheat yourself if you're not careful!!!! While here, you may also make your name blink or invisible. Pick for a name change, enter a "`b" before your name to make it blink red or "`y" for yellow or simply a color code to make it invisible but you will not be able to receive mail unless you write it first.

On older versions, there's a way to get an instant 2 billion gold. Go to the innkeeper and give him a tip of (negative) -2000000000" or so. This cheat is 'high' or 'low' spirit reactive. THIS HAS BEEN REPAIRED: Please do this author the courtesy of using only the most recent release of his works on your BBS.

This really isn't that big of a deal...but if it's the only IGM in the realm, it's still an advantage. If you buy your lemonade, you will notice that you can't buy it again...but if you leave and come back, it will let you! If it says "You feel vigorous, I wonder what that means?", It means that you may flirt again, with Violet, Seth, or the grave digger but not sure about another person. You can also completely change your name and re-enter as a new player and go through the entire IGM again.

**WARRIOR'S VILLAGE** - rename armor/weapon to `k, `S or `}

Before killing the dragon stash everything into this IGM, it will all be there waiting for you when you restart. You can get tons of gems in this IGM as well. Go to the bank, and pick the option to sell your gems. You have to have at least 1 gem on hand to make this work. ...i.e., you can sell -32000 gems...and get 32,000 gems...of course, your money on hand will go into the negatives, but that can easily be fixed by either going into the LORD bank and leaving without making any transaction, or exiting the game, and then coming back in.

Transfer your gold to someone else, go in and ask for gold. Do it over and over. (This one may be fixed so that you can only go into it one time.)

You can get tons of free gold and gems in this IGM. Go to the bank and deposit a negative amount of gems and/or gold. This works great in version 3.50+, when you can cash them in all at one time.

If you go into negative gold in some way, DO NOT go in and out of the Bank. The 100 gold compensation is a pretty shoddy one. What you SHOULD do is THIS: When you see you have negative gold, leave LORD. Upon re-entry, you'll see that you have two billion gold on hand. The reason is pretty simple...; LORD naturally assumes you obtained negative gold because you went OVER the 2,147,483,617 limit, so it gives you two billion back, because it doesn't want to "cheat" you.

*** RUMORS **** RUMORS **** RUMORS **** RUMORS ****

You always hear a lot of rumors in my 'business', many IGM cheats are sent to me, and either I can't verify it due to one reason or another, I can't find someone to test it for me, or I just plain cannot make it work, but the rumors continue. We can all have a hand in checking out the rumors, and setting the record straight.

Andy Grondalski contributes this:
If you ask the Dreamlord for wisdom sometimes he will give you a negative amount. This seems to work most often if on your first of playing after being reset you go there and he will give you around 10,000 exp. The next day (he must get mad or something), he tends to take away 20,000.

R.L. Simpson of The Computer Control Center Node 2 says: "All I can say is go to Damonica Satan's Domain, then the feature Well of Souls, from there figure it out yourself, oh and this only works if they throw up a rose, If you figure it out then you will have plenty of charm. Let's just say I have over 29000 charm in a game that's been going 5 days! Yes I meant thousand!"

Contributed by Tom Burrell from Insomnia BBS
You can buy hit points, strength, and defense really cheap in Milo's Market. In some versions of Red Dragon Bank you can stash some money, go kill the dragon then go back and it will still be there.

Contributed by Andy Grondalski
When you have less than 50,000 experience, and not too much charm (not sure how much yet), go to the Mystic Tower IGM. In the Inn you have the option of flirting with 3 different barmaids, (Ladies, this is a gender specific IGM) select one and sit her on your lap. Not liking you, she will take away 50,000 experience. Going back to LORD you should have negative experience. Fight a monster or player and you'll have 200 million exp.

Chad Osten from Off World2/West Texas
Chad Osten, the author of this IGM has sort of challenged us to find the 'givey buggies' in his older version 1.20, of OLD MAN. It may or may not be gold, it could be tons of kids, or name change to be undetected. ANYONE?? ;)

contributed by Adam Montoya of The Precinct BBS
"There is a bug in the (old) Village IGM we were running on a local BBS, I'm not sure if it was everywhere, but if you went to the INN, and pinched a barmaid, it would give you a LOT of experience. I think one guy got 2,000,000,000 exp from one time... Again, this was an old version probably won't work...:)" Well Adam, let's find out, it's open for investigation for anyone interested in checking it out!

If you exceed the limited amount of gold, or experience which is right around 2.147 billion, it will revert you back to 2 billion gold, and the same amount of experience. Experience is not that big a deal. Your hit points, strength, and defense will go into the negative if you exceed 32,767. When this happens to your strength or defense or in some occasions both, sell the equipment, and it will drop you down. If it is hit points that has gone over the 32,767 limit, purchase gems and redeem them at the bartenders. Instead of going up, it will go down and take you out of the negative.

**A Word from me, Kiteria**
I've tried to keep my personal opinion out of this file, those that know me know that I do not like the IGM's that off set the game to the point that it is no longer fun. Hence this file, please share it with your friends, all the boards you call, ask your SysOps permission to up load it for his inclusion into his file base. I do ask that when you quote any of this file, that you give the author due credit and that NONE of this file be altered in any way. Let's give this wonderful game back to everyone, not just a chosen few. For more hints tips and information about the game LORD, and the IGM's, read the FIDO LORD Door Game Discussion ECHO, it will help you to be a more informed player.
