Have the developers thought of using the game engine Torque? I think it could be highly valuable for this game. It could make the game development much easier. Its a very good game engine check it out at -http://www.garagegames.com/products/browse/torque/ and http://www.garagegames.com/

One word answer: No
Why? Because using an already created engine for a project as big and complex as Tatsumaki will lead to serious problems later on. Not only is the scripting language torque uses subpar, incomplete, and under documented - but its just not powerful enough.
The torque engine was made for FPS games, not MMOs or RPGs - it'd take a lot longer to modify it.
Also, TGE is ugly, and TSE is still in testing phases :p

Thanks for thinking about Tatsumaki, but its been my and DeXtrose's belief since day one, hell, before day one - that using an already created engine would seriously hinder Tatsumaki's success.

Im pretty sure sykoi has almost thought over everything "under the skin" (I cant think of a better phrase) But keep the ideas coming, just maybe more towards gameplay.
