Each player has their own history line and quests, but you could play side by side with a friend, and we can make specific quests to multiplayer too.

Could this be done someday?

a) list all the "Big post 1.0 features"
b) create wiki entry for each
c) list all work needed to do this features

I would much rather use time to code advanced graphics features and extra support for physics and gameplay than networking the game.

Hell, I'd even take a crack at AI programming before network coding. To me, it's asking for a disaster and a Sisyphean task.
