Notes on charges:

*These are standard punishments. Depending on the severity of the crime, the sentencing may be reduced or amplified by the Sheriff.

*Money talks. Crimes can be reduced or completely ‘forgotten’ with the right amount. Just don’t be surprised if the Sheriff cracks down harder for attempted bribery.

*The bigger the crime, the more likely it is to be noticed. Keep that in mind.

*If you steal something, it must be oocly made clear to the person you’ve stolen from. (If not present.) No act of theft will go unnoticed forever. Someone will realize something is missing eventually. – If you are concerned about metagaming, inform an admin and we will tell the victim what is missing without your name.
