I know this has come up before, multiplayer in Exult:
And the general consensus has been, as in the FAQ, "No." :) I can understand why, and I don't have the expertise to change that.
That being said, does anyone know of a game or engine that I could play with my wife that would allow us to share the feel of a single player RPG? We played every good (and a few bad) Neverwinter module together, and tried UO, but that doesn't have the feel of a single-player game to be shared. We even played thru Diablo2 together, which was different but fun.
I'm thinking, based on the threads I've read, that U6O is really the closest to what I'm imagining. We tried 'hotseat' play on Black Gate, but she couldn't get in to watching me play the game, while she quickly got frustrated while playing for herself. It would be ideal if one of us could be the Avatar, and another of us control one of the party members, such as Iolo. I won't pretend to imagine it would be that easy, though.
I'm thinking a real role-playing game like U7, Interplay's LotR games (which are remarkably similar to U7, in my opinion) or maybe NWN. We really did not like NWN2. Any suggestions?
