    Fantasy: I chose Wheel of Time because LOTR/Hobbit license is too restrictive.  A silmarillion based MMO would be incredible though.  Too bad that won't happen until Christopher Tolkien is gone.  WoT started fading but has a lot of potential.  It is being made but by a no name company.

     

    Sci Fi: I'd love to see a Farscape MMO.  Yeah it will never happen but it's a dream.

    I picked Discworld because it seems ideally suited to having a few million extra people creating stories inside the world. The other IPs seem too restricted because they already have a story arc for the worlds...they have a beginning, middle and end and players would have no impact on that. Discworld isn't comprised of a world story, it's comprised of a lot of stories about a lot of individuals.

    If I was going to hand pick an IP, I'd go with one of the following:

    • H.P. Lovecraft, set in the 20's. The United States, the Dreamlands, and Leng Plateau would be among the available locations. Mostly a story driven theme park game.
    • Zombie Apocalypse - of course. Full on sandbox game.
    • Wild, Wild West - Victorian Steampunk with Magic in the Old West. Combination theme park and sandbox game.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    No, really DON'T watch the movie. It was probably the worst book to film translation I've ever seen. Read the book 20 times and start building.

     

    Personally I'd like to see David Gemell's Drenai series translated to an MMO.

    Record of lodoss ways, Vampire hunter D, trinity blood, also for honorable mentsion since still two of my favorite series of anime ips Tekkaman Blade, and Guyver.

  • doragon86doragon86 Boston, MAPosts: 589Member

    Forgotten Realms or Dragonlance would be nice. Both have quite a lot of content to work with.

    "For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

    I want a Stargate MMO.  The possibilities for a game like that boggles the mind. SG: Atlantis could be an expansion.  I would play a Wraith or Asmodian. I would be entertained and my wife wouldn't see me away from my computer for 2-3 years.

     

    Everyone wins!

     

  • kellian1kellian1 Phillipsburg, NJPosts: 233Member Uncommon

    Considering most MMO's have been, up to this point, mainly sword and sorcery type games...It's amazing that they haven't done a decent D&D game based on either forgotten realms or dragonlance (or hell even the ravenloft seting would be a great MMO)

    Voted for Dragonlance

    They did make one but it failed in beta.

    I've thought about this in the past and love to see one made but based more on the anime then the movie.

    i've never had a chance to read the book but did hear the anime was based a lot closer to it then the movie.

  • ElricmerrenElricmerren White Bear Lake, MNPosts: 295Member

    For D&D ips what about dark sun, or grayhawk, birthright (that is one of the settings i gew up in playing.), but i would agree ravenloft's systems and machanics would be interesting to see inmmos like the system for becoming a darklord.

    Question for others though: Was their ever a Dragon Lance MMO? because I remember when I first was interested in MMOs and found out about a Dragonlance one...however I look now and can't find any info on it. How I found out about it was looking up example of MMORPGs, it was long before I found  this site.

    Probably thinking of old old SSI Dragonlance Gold Box Series:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_Box

    If you don't like a game don't play it, and quit running to MMORPG.com to trash it.

  • KitynKityn Pontiac, MIPosts: 117Member Uncommon

    None of the above. I would choose GW2. A Palladium Books RIFTS would be a nice MMO but I do not think that current tech can do it and make it work.

    Gritty, dark scifi/cyberpunk game with organized, corporate high-caste humans living in big cities VS anarchist, low-caste humans living in deserts, sewers, scrapyards etc, and some work as servants. Through evolution a notable breed difference develops between these two parties. Space travel so advanced, that couple of close planets are habitated and mining of minerals extends to outskirts of the galaxy.

     

    Later in the game's story maybe Skynet or aliens, I don't know which! The cheesier the better. No, ZOMBIES.

  • HomituHomitu Hometown, HIPosts: 2,030Member

    After reading the title of the thread, I immediately thought Wheel of Time.  So happy to see it was included on the list :)

  • ZylaxxZylaxx Erlanger, KYPosts: 2,574Member

    Return to Ispar.

     

    based on the events some time in the future of Dereth when most of the human inhabitants finally found a way to return to their home world of Ispar.  Auberean, the world where Dereth is located in the Asherons Call universe.

     

    Basically I would create an Asherons Call 3.  :)

    Everything you need to know about Elder Scrolls Online

    Playing: GW2
    Waiting on: TESO
    Next Flop: Planetside 2
    Best MMO of all time: Asheron's Call - The first company to recreate AC will be the next greatest MMO.

     A slightly differeing idea of the ip setting for Vampire hunter D really. In that setting the world's culture and way of livng ended in a great war or cataclysm. Then a caste/race of Vampires that had hide before the events rises into the world along side being, demons, ans both mutant or cybernetuc being created via either magic or technology even possibly both of them. After rising from the ashes of the prior world's cultural remains they enslave/enthrall the remaining humanoids in the world into a society. Humans are food to the vampires even though they created a blood substitute they still prefer true human blood to synthetic blood. As the vampirs attained a point of scientific as well as mystic supreme levels they found that they had to fall after this zenith. As they fell the society they had created falls with them, and freeing humanity from the, Also in the world created from a union of a vampire as well as human women/man a race called Damphir that was half human, and hal vampiric holding much of the powers of the vampires yet little of their weaknesses. Being able to play as a Damphir, mutant, vampire, human, r even cyborgs or such in a game that is both high fantasy, sci fi and yeet a waste-land type ip setting would be perfect to me.

    I voted for Dragonlance but I would prefer an original IP. Dragonlance is pretty good for a fantasy setting and you can have lots of different races. I would love to ride a (Dragonlace-type) dragon, too.

     

    (Wow I had to validate the fact that I am human to post this!)
