That's true but its a question of what Adonthell is supposed to be. I
think it's more a RPG creation framework than just an RPG, so it would
be a direct competitor to RPGmaker2k, that has a quite large community
that features amazing games. RPGmaker however is - by it's closed source
nature - more limited than Adonthell. But it is quite simple to use, at
least for the beginning, so it tends to attract people that are less
technical skilled in thing like getting up and CVS server and so on.
However to get an SQL server should be quite easy as most webhosting
providers feature one. And exactly this might be the killer feature to
reach the community.
