Force9 BBS

fORCE9 BBS is one of four of the last standing BBSes in the UK – a reincarnation of eVOLuTION BBS from the 90s. We run ENiGMA½ BBS software, of which RiPuk (the SysOp) is an active contributor.

Message Networks
fORCE9 is hooked up to FSXnet, Agoranet, Retronet, Fidonet and WWIVnet. The message networks are what made BBS’s so popular back before the internet forums that we now know. If you’re curious, jump into FSXnet’s General Chat channel and say hi!

Door Games
Did you ever play Legend of the Red Dragon back in the 90s? Well you should have – it’s awesome. Lucky for you we have it online – just try it. We’re also hooked up to DoorParty, CombatNet and BlackCountryRock games servers who host dozens of inter-BBS door games.

Other Stuff!
fORCE9 has loads of custom mods, this ain’t just another stock BBS install. Come check us out via telnet or via our web client – https://bbs.force9.org.
