Wait, wait, wait ONE SECOND.
Let me get this straight: Obvious sociopath, who is a physically and influentially powerful person with severe anger issues who beats people and doesn't care about making a public spectacle - publicly humiliate and knock unconscious, then leave there.
Small-fry Adventurers who are under monetary pressure who steal wagons - kill, kill, KILL AND LEAVE TO ROT!
Do I have that right? I can understand being hesitant to kill, but if that's the case SHOULDN'T THOSE PUNISHMENTS BE REVERSED?!?!
