multiple characters for the player in same world
NOT MULTIPLAYER. That's not what I'm talking about.
Each time a new character is created, they always start on the ship and they are the one and only player character in that world. What I am proposing is the ability to create a mod where the same world could be inhabited by more than one player character.
One player character is the Nerevarine. That is the only player character that can do the main quest and if that player character dies then you have to start over.
In addition to that main quest player character, there can be other player characters that do not do the main quest. Maybe one of these characters will join House telvani while the main quest player character joined house Hlaalu. If one of these secondary player characters happens to die, then the other player characters can find their corpse at the place where they died.
Now, I'm not saying that OpenMW should create this mod. I'm just saying that it might be a very nice thing for the engine to allow a mod like this to be created if someone happens to come along and wants to work on it.
