    I just had this thought today. I would like to see an MMORPG based on the Dragonriders of Pern books by Anne McCaffrey. I'm not sure how the specifics would work, but I think that the world and its story would be an interesting basis for a game.

    My mum has been wishing that for ages now :) the Pern series would have to be her fav books (She names all her game characters off the books lol) It would work - crafters, fighters, entertainers, all sorts of things =) I should shut up now lol but I LOVE the idea! -Murrh-

    wishing

    I've been wishing that for ages. I love the Pern books. What a great game it would make, and now that they have such beautiful graphics in games, now is the time to do it. Do we have a few million Dragonriders readers who are also PC gamers and could throw in a dollar or two, and we could make it ourselves.LOL
    Oh don't I wish. :)

    Makes me wonder if there is somewhere that idea can be pitched. I feel all motivated to send emails to multiple game developers or go to their forums and post.

    I wouldnt mind a Pern MMO, that would be pretty cool.

    That goes right up there on my wish list with a Ghostbusters MMO.

    LOL, I never thought of a Ghostbuster MMO. That would be great. The kids these days wouldn't get it though.

    It would be a fabulous game that's for sure! However knowing Anne McCaffrey's possessiveness about her work I REALLY doubt that she'll allow a game to be made off her books. Heck, she won't even let artists or writers do fan art/fiction.

    lol

    An MMO based on the Tad Williams Otherland Series could be cool and a bizarre twist of being in a virtual world inside a virtual world.
