Archaege is an upcoming MMO from Trion. Read up on Greg Tito's Preview here:

[quote]Once you get past the game's starting areas, which are unique to each race, you'll eventually have to cross the Sea of Serenity. The devs playfully call this massive open world PvP area the Sea of Slaughter, because it's terribly dangerous to traverse on your own. In the Sea of Serenity is the Land of Origin, and players can build castles and other structures there. Other players can move onto your territory, and pay you tithes to plant farmland, etc. To build those things and craft the necessary components, you need raw resources like wood, sheep and metal. The best place to gain those resources aren't on the Land of Origin, but spread around the Sea of Serenity or back on the main continents. You have to move those resources using mounts like donkeys or cattle and eventually cross the open PvP area of the sea, and that's where it gets interesting.

If you kill a member of your faction to get their stuff, you'll walk around with bloody footprints for a while. Seeing the evidence of your dastardly deed, other players can report you, and once enough reports come in you'll be arrested. A trial by a jury of peers - players - is then held and decides your jail sentence, varying from a few minutes to an hour or more. (Prison isn't necessarily unfun as you can play soccer in jail and even try to escape through a short quest if you want).</qoute>
