I'm assuming you'd be setting this up as freeform, or are you thinking of developing some sort of rules system?
I didn't care for Legend of the Seeker either myself, the books are tons better. I'm visually impaired, so I lose all the visual elements, but even I could tell they did a crappy job with it, and ruined the whole potential right from the start, by introducing characters that weren't even in the book, and putting in events that didn't happen in the books. Really disappointing, and irritating!
I may re-read the series myself, although that could take a while. The books are extremely long, but well worth reading, and I'm sure those of us who've read them won't mind helping out those who haven't, hopefully without giving away any spoilers, in case anyone does get inspired to track down the books and read them for themselves.
