Darn it. Sorry about that. What I was trying to say until I apparently
sent the e-mail by accident (darn Pine) was that there is, or was last I
talked to anyone on the project, an interesting, smaller graphical MMORPG
called Gryphon Tapestry, that was/is doing that. I saw Raph with the
writer (Lee Sheldon) at GDC, but didn't get a chance to talk to Lee, so
maybe Raph konws if it's still being worked on. 

Another thing interesting about Gryphon Tapestry was that it's entirely
web-based. From the screen shots I've seen, it appears that the graphics
are somewhat like a storybook's (you don't actually see people in your
group in the scene, as they have to keep the graphics simple and
relatively static due to everything have to stream from the server).
