you know...one could make an MMO using all the existing graphics, formulas, dialogues, etc.
Leaving only the multiplayer part to be worked on.
unbalanced? Who cares! It would be crazy fun. Imagine making a party with each member being a real player? imagine shaper/rebel/empire/avernum conflicts with real players,especially those choices where both factions get different missions in one area. Imagine all the value seemingly worthless artifacts would get! Imagine the unsellable throwels!
Oh well, it will never happen. (OR WILL IT)
