You also run into a bit of a problem with the source material because in Tron: Betrayal, the Sea of Simulation (where the ISOs actually come out of) gets poisoned at the end, so the possibility of more ISOs by that method is null. If this happens before the ISO insurrection and annihilation then it might work given the large number who were killed off. This would also lead to an interesting point where anyone playing as an ISO would be killed in the storyline since the only remaining one is of course Olivia Wilde's Quora.
Another interesting idea is instead of going the MMO path would be to go for either a Multi-User Dungeon (MUD) or a tabletop RPG akin to Dungeons and Dragons, etc. With a MUD you would have a computer interface and would definitely have massive geek cred, but the TTRPG would be able to be expanded and the rules worked on to better work out the kinks before we even try launching it on computers.
Also: Name Possibilities?
- Tron: Insurrection (too much like Alien)
- Tron: Redemption
- Tron: Genesis
- The Grid

Good three day weekend folks. Had fun times with friends and good quality time with the lady. Now back to our regularly scheduled entertainment!
What has happened with fantasy art lately? I look around at old authors and new authors on the shelves of my local used bookstore and notice people shying away from the epic "I really want this airbrushed on my van" type of art. It seems to be being phased out with artsy 'representations' of what it's about or with the non-descript cover panel with the name (I'm looking at you, Song of Ice and Fire...). If I ever get a sportscar, remind me of this and I'll get it custom pained with a wizard or something. Do my little part to bring light to such awesome artwork.
