With the opening of MORE, the DRC will be in absentia. While some independent restoration groups (Third Path and SubRest come to mind) have historically operated out of the way of the DRC, the current situation could present an opportunity for an usurping of control. OOC, storytellers working on this theme could team up with a Writer or two to produce some small new D’ni areas. New areas would be released as under the “control” of a new (and more antagonistic) restoration company that has decided to move in while the DRC are away. This group could limit access to the new areas to some explorer groups as a political maneuver (OOC, planned with these groups’ involvement, so no explorer is really being prevented from visiting and playing).
Now see, I was considering selling all OOC people into slavery. But I actually like this idea. In all seriousness, we could call it Operation Epic Fail, if the idea works, then we can call the DRC failures while the community helps Cyan succeed. If MORE itself fails. Then, this time around it would be an epic fail. This could go both ways!
