So there have been some sightings of goblins in town. There's been some graffiti which nobody can read, some vandalism, some theft, and the city guard caught and killed a group of goblins. Our Heroes get contacted by the guard captain to Do Something, that something being, find out what's going on and, while you're at it, if you happen to kill any goblins, we'll pay you 5 gp an ear.
Is that per goblin, or per ear?
But that's not the real question. The real question is, does graffitization, vandalism and petty theft normally carry the death penalty in Cauldron? Bear in mind that the party has already been privy to a certain amount of destruction of private property in their attempts to hunt down the kidnapped children in Chapter 1.
Even better, does just being the same race as some other people who are suspected of graffitization, vandalism and petty theft carry the death penalty? The exalted character in my party was Quite Concerned at the abject racism involved.</lj-cut
