Crime in Azeroth: A Guide Edit
These laws should be considered an encouragement for other guilds to use in their interaction with eachother. Check out who is on our list, in the next post and give them the crime of their lives, then see if they report it to us. We don't force anyone to obey these laws. If you seriously don't want to obey the rules, we won't do anything about it. These are for you to follow or not. But if you don't, don't expect us to give you any value as a criminal. *smiles*
Notice that the more work and the more RP a crime demands; the larger the penalties. We could penalize a serious crime like murder (or we could include such a serious thing as !#!!), but these are crimes that would not give much to the roleplaying community. A wellplanned bankrobbery however, with the gathering of information, resources, escape plannings etc.. that deserves a real penalty. Just finding the right time of day for the actual robbery to take place would be hard: It cant be to much lag, and there still has to be some militants and other witnesses to see the crime.
Roleplay the whole situation if you need to report a crime, dont just send an ooc whisper, thats not the point. If you have to yell: At least include a small ooc note for where you are calling from.
If you commit a crime, you will get a criminal record. The criminal record will stick with you for a long time, and may be a burden in the future.
If you do not approve of the laws and are charged with a crime by a militant, please whisper the Militant and we will not bother you (ever) again. We only wish to enhance the roleplay atmosphere of Steamwheedle Cartel, not to harass anyone.

The Appendixes Edit
Appendix A - Punishments:
On spot punishments:
- Criminal record
- 3 silver fine
- 5 silver fine
- 10 silver fine
- Community Service - 5 markings
- Public Humiliation - 10 markings
- Trial - 20 markings
Possible trial-ordered punishments:
- Community Service
- Public Humiliation
- Public Execution
Apendix B - Punishment Clarifications:
Community Service: The criminal is put to work a whole day under the watching eye of a militant.
Public Humiliation: Holding the criminal clamped in the courtyard, shouting to the public, to make sure they will be wary of him. May include small doses of violence and rotten vegetables.
Jail-time: An event ran by the Militia where we lock up criminals and make sure they pay for their crimes. Lousy food, dark cellars, inmates, visitors, daring escapes, interrogations!
Ban: Banned from City for a designated period, re-entering the city is a crime. ((use costumes and disguises!))
Outlawed: Banned from city eternally, re-entering the city is a crime.
More importantly, than re-entering being a crime is that The law does not protect banned or outlawed criminals, while they're in the city. (this means that anyone can do anything to them and will not be prosecuted)
After the Ban/Outlaw period or the interrogation you will return to 0 marking points. But you will still be in our system. And we will keep an eye on you.
Public Execution: Most severe penalty possible. This is not lightly given. ((The criminal in question must give OOC consent to being killed, and staying dead)) Only given in the most severe of cases.
Appendix C - Trials:
Trials will be held against someone that has consistently broken laws and gained a minimum of 20 markings. The Militia will gather witnesses against the criminals drawn from his victims.
A date will be set where the trial is to be held. All witnesses will be heard in front of a representative of the law and the criminal will be judged thereafter. The nature of the crime will determine if the criminal is either judged by a judge, the Commander or a jury consisting of selected citizens of Stormwind. (Cannot have a criminal record and must support the Militia)
((Note: A trial will demand a lot of the Militia in the course of arrangements so it will only be granted to truly notorius criminals. Notorius does not mean: bombing the office repeatedly. The crimes will need to be committed against regular citizens (attacking Militants wont have any affect) and they must show a certain flavour of threat to the city's safety.))
