Sierra did.

They also sent me a box full of stuff when it was cancelled (a gandalf doll, fridge magnets etc) as well as a lot of babylon5 gear.

Very interested in seeing if this game will use a lot of the ICE stuff.

For those of you not familiar with ICE, there are literally thousands of pages of pen and paper roleplaying sourcebooks that are EXTREMELY well made. If this stuff is used as the basis for the game then game content alone will blow every other MMORPG out of the water content wise.

We're talking about REAL adventuring, not the mindless hack and slash of EQ.

With all the dense history of the books, I wonder if the online game will be just as thick and rich and adhere to them with as much fanaticism as a die-hard Tolkienite. Will they have the production designers Alan Lee and John Howe (the calendar guys) on board? I'm not into fantasy at all, but this is one game I'd be interested in depending on how nutty they stick to the books.

I liked this game when I played it the first time. When it was called Everquest

Another MMORPG, oh boy...
Just what we need, as there are next to none MMORPGs out there. We only waited for this one... NOT.

Ya gotta wonder with all these MMORPGs who is gonna choke first. I know that Motor City Online bit it, but it seems to me with so many of these, one of the big guys is bound to take a dump.
