I would like to play an MMO based on the Necroscope series. I really like vampires and creatures of the night.

The shannara series would make a great mmorpg. lots of lore to use there.

I would like to see a Discworld mmo mainly because the IP doesnt limit the potential developer. Almost anything is possible in Discworld. Truly amazing IP

The First Law trilogy by Joe Abercrombie would be nice too.

Stephen King is all well and good but for a horror MMO I really think the works of H.P. Lovecraft would go further. Lovecraft's "Cthulhu Mythos" is filled with so many places, dimensions and monsters there would be expansion packs for years to come. The only downside is that in most of Lovecraft's stories, the main character either dies or goes insane - which just won't do in a MMO!

Lovecraft universe got its mmorpg game already.

Starship Troopers I could do.

Disney, Harry Potter, Fairtales and the like I would pass, they'd probably be money makers in the tween department but marketing would drive that one.


Dune is a MOST loved series for me, and I honor Herbert's writings in my own way in my MMO.


The Dark Tower would be a nice choice as well, although I'm not fond of King at all, this one is one that I could see working well, but i'd much rather have something of a deadlands flare to it.


Fantasy =so overdone in this genre, but as many of the others have stated. The Pern, Fire and Ice and the like all would make out well in the genre.

I agree that the "Sword Of Truth"  series would be a great one. Also the Belgarad(SP?) series by David Eddings and the Shannara series would be great also.

Don't you mean the religious nutters get to play in teams going around unbeliever's homes (finally - housing again in an MMO!) trying to cast conversion spells on them?

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

Harry Potter as #1? =/

Don't get me wrong, i really liked the books, but an MMORPG? I doubt i'd play it.

What could be really good if it was done right:

- Call of Cthulhu/Cthulhu Mythos: although really hard to deliver the right kind of atmosphere

- Cyberpunk / Shadowrun (if you want a magic element) : I'd REALLY love to see a well done game in this genre.

- World of Darkness: As I understand it's already being done by CCP. Let's hope they get all aspects right! Then it'll be a winner.


As an afterthought, The Death Gate Cycle by Weiss & Hickman was also a very interesting idea. Not so much waiting for yet another fantasy based MMORPG though. It'd have to be remarkable....

Battletech anyone?

I think I only saw a single comment back on page 2 with Battletech listed... there are several series of books by a variety of authors written on the BT universe, it's NOT fantasy (which I think we're a bit inundated with at the moment), it has very rich lore, a rough timeline with lots of gaps to be filled in, and there's not a single "hero" that the books follow, but rather they seem to all be focused on a collection of random heros for a book or three...

I've always enjoyed the Mechwarrior games - to bring that level of FPS to an MMO set in the BT universe would be pretty awesome.  They could start out with a game focused on the inner sphere, and then the clan invasion could be a future expansion...

Not bad, I agree with more then a few of the author's choices, particularly Dune and Starship Troopers.  Most of these I haven't read though.  However, I know some decent canidates for a Sci-Fi MMOG:

- Starfist by David Sherman and Dan Cragg:  It's the 25th century and humanity's spread across several dozen worlds,  but the Marines (and other branches of the Confederation's military) could use a few good PCs. Between the alien Slinks and insurrections on numerous worlds, there's plenty of opprotunity for adventurers.

- Vatta's War by Elizabeth Moon:  In the far future, humanity has settled a region of space light years away from Earth.  Conspiracy and piracy are abound and there's a conflict between several different religious sects regarding the existence of modified humans.  Has potential as both an Elite-styled ship game and a SWG-style RPG.

Sword of Truth series

Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter (minus the eroticism ofc) - This one was werewolves and Vampires... tho I can't quite figure out how they would do Vampire leveling, unless it were all instances for them, when it is day for all others - unless all Vampires are NPC mobs... which if you read this series, you know it's not true.

I would NOT play Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - watched the movie and fell asleep - the ONLY movie I ever fell asleep to in a movie theater.


Fairytell games... no thanks, thats what FreeRealms are for.

i think unfortunatly fantasy book worlds dont make great mmos . because they have to follow the story and law too much . i mean middle earth online would have been a great mmo but lord of the rings online follows a constrained side story . which is fair enough but it has limited appeal .

A) If the Clans aren't in it at the start, I'm not interested. Daddy needs his Timber Wolf II with a PPC and shoulder-mounted LRMs.

B) The rights on this franchise are so borked right now (Gee thanks, WoTC) that I don't see it happening. But I'd buy it in a heartbeat if done right.


Speaking of little gems from FASA....SHADOWRUN. The world needs a cyberpunk/fantasy MMO done RIGHT.

Sorry for the double post but uh...I thought I was the only person on earth that had heard of this series.

Also mad props to whoever mentioned Necroscope.

Isaac Asimov's Foundation series would be a solid baseline for an mmo, the technologically superior foundation vs the mentally superior 2nd foundation.

Lots of people have mentioned the Forgotten realms, I'd love to see an mmo based solely around the Bloodwar between Demons and Devils of the lower planes:-

Ha, the old Demogorgon vs Asmodeus conundrum!

Back to scf fi, Iain M Banks culture universe would make for an awesome and totally limitless mmo setting.

I imagine it's all about Licensing agreements.  Do you have any idea how tightly the Harry Potter franchise is controlled?  The game would have to be hugely successful for the developers to make any money.  Of course....a Potter MMO would have them flocking to it in droves.

Interesting poster and trailer (saw it on YouTube) but unless Chaosium has some sort of sayso in the development, I'll have to say "Secret World" is "Lovecraft-esque", not "Lovecraftian"

The devs could promise mind-blowing up-coming content with no fear of protest from the community when it fails to arrive, since they'd be absolutely true to the lore.
