An MMO With a Judicial System; Want to Go to Virtual Jail?
Ever find yourself playing an MMO and wish there would be serious repercussions for griefing? Asian MMO ArcheAge may be for you, a game that includes a criminal system with trials, prison time, and pirate status for repeat offenders.
Griefers who steal from protected property or kill a fellow faction member leave behind clues in the form of blood or footprints. These clues can be turned in as evidence by vigilante players, at which point a griefer will be faced with a choice of either a trial or immediate jail time upon his next death or login.
Trials may increase or decrease your jail time — it all depends on the decision of the jurors, level 30 players who accept an invite. Players in jail can pass the time by killing rats, playing soccer, or trying to escape.
