I used to play an LP called 'Infinity' which was heavily quest based; one
quest selected from a small range of quests per level.  Most of the quest
areas I progressed into remained open to everyone of the relevant level =
any time, with the inevitable result that you would head off to your area
and find things missing, or the area half complete, and have to wait for
someone to go away or for the place to reset.  Despite this, the game was
playable for what it was, it didn't really seem to detract.
