Tales of Alvin Maker MMORPG

eGenesis to Develop Alvin's World as a Multi-player Online Game (thanks IGN and Mike Martinez) has a letter from science fiction author Orson Scott Card describing plans to create an MMORPG based on his Tales of Alvin Maker series. Here's a bit on the game, which like A Tale in the Desert, eGenesis' other MMO project, will contain no combat:

Four different magic systems, plus the technology track, offer players many ways to develop their characters; the presence of Calvin, Arthur Stuart, Peggy Larner, and Alvin Maker himself will provide plenty of complications and opportunities.

Above all, this alternate version of America will have ongoing events that players can affect, changing history each time a full game is played.

The game will be by paid subscription and will be played online. It will take some time to develop it, of course, but progress reports will be made here, including graphics as they become available.

Hmm, in fact Ultima Online would be a good example to support the original poster's statement.

Actually, UO was what stuck in my mind when I made the statement, as was M59...Eve Online is not really mainstream but doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon...You're right, I gave nothing to backup my statement, but it certainly wasn't 'illogical'...
