If you had told me before it happened that we would get an MMO based on the works of Tad Williams, I wouldn’t have believed it. Whether or not Otherland is actually any good is… honestly, not relevant to this particular discussion. I’ve heard enough to keep me off of it, but it’s still an MMO based on a series of book s I would never had bet money on getting.
Not that I don’t have my fair share of other settings I’d like to see in MMO form which are unlikely to happen. We’re probably never getting a Planescape MMO, for example. Guy Gavriel Kay’s Tigana is one of my favorite books, but it’s not getting turned into an MMO. There will be no MMO based on Saga or Empowered (especially when we don’t even have a Marvel MMO running) and I wouldn’t dream of expecting something based on Futurama.
And yet… Otherland. Sometimes we get those implausible things. So tell us, dear reader, what wildly implausible setting would you like for an MMO? Not one you think will actually happen, but just one you’d like to see?
