Darkfall Online Description
Darkfall Online is a fantasy MMORPG, centered on the struggles between six races. These races are the Alfar (dark elves), Humans, Orks, Mahirim (wolf men), Mirdain (forest elves), and the Dwarves. Players choose from one of these races during character creation.
Characters have 6 attributes: Strength, Vitality, Dexterity, Quickness, Intelligence, and Wisdom. These also influence dynamic stats such as hit points, mana, and stamina. Although each race has racial abilities, Darkfall Online puts greater weight on developing skills. Skills, weapons, armor, special attacks, crafting, and many other nuances are just as important as the character's level.
Combat in Darkfall Online is particularly deadly, as there is a constant friendly fire and collision detection. Moreover, PVP full looting is in effect in the game, allowing player killers to take the gear and treasure from a fallen enemy. This is connected to the Alignment system in the game. Darkfall Online player characters begin with the Good alignment, which decreases as evil actions are done. These can occur by killing racial allies. It can be regained by killing racial enemies or other evil players.
In addition to quests and open world exploration, players can join clans in city building and conquest. There is a fixed number of pre-made cities in the world of Darkfall Online. Player controlled cities can be freely attacked through Sieges.
