If they can come even close to the standard of Mask of the Betrayer then they're on to a good start. It certainly showed that the engine is more than capable of keeping the immersion going if the story is good enough to immerse, and the engine's obviously accessible enough to the amateur community that if we're lucky some good quality stories will come out of it.

It's a shame they handled MoW so badly though, in the long run the benefits of motivating the modding community with the promise of officially sanctioned and actively promoted releases for the cream of the amateur modders would have massively outweighed any losses from a bit of piracy.
