The Maker:New sides

That's exactly what I mean.  Why use the same three houses every game has used, when you can introduce a whole lot of new stuff.  Dune is a rich and limitless universe, so why not utilize that?  I'm not saying add ten more Houses.  I mean one or two new ideas.

Why change the name of House Ordos? As I thought Stefan mentioned it, he said that people could make their own campaigns. The orginal Dune II campaign will stick to The Maker (that is very likely) and that campaign will have the classic 3 Houses in it.

So if you want to make a campaign without Ordos, and with House Richese, that won't be a problem I think...
