Hi all, i did a search and didn't see any direct topics on it, so i thought i'd just add this here.
I play this little known mmorpg called darkfall. To briefly sum it up, its basically like the elder scrolls (about morrowind in graphics), only with other players involved. It can be a bit hit and miss at time, but when its good i really enjoy it.
Players form clans, claim ownership of cities, lay siege to enemy player cities. You can build ships, and have naval battles. There is pve, although they never really spent the resources needed to implement what they originally promised on that front, so the big draw is really pvp here.
There are developer issues, i'm not their biggest fan. They're apparently planning darkfall 2.0 at the moment, with some controversy over whether or not there'll be a character wipe to go with it. But thankfully they're very slow to do anything at the best of times, so that won't be an issue for a while.
In case anyone is interested in giving it a go, they have a 14 day free trial on their website. I'm not sure if these are unlimited, or have a fixed number of trials you can do per computer/isp/i don't know.

Oh yes, theres two servers: 1 european, 1 american. I play the american one, it seems to be the higher population and newer one (all things relative).
Finally, to give you an idea of what can happen at its best, heres a link to a player made video of one of their sieges: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCNZ1Mh7djQ
In my opinion, one of the best mmorpgs out there at the moment.
