Random List – 20 Punishments

When someone has committed a crime, or even just been accused of one in some locations, they are punished. Most justice systems try to make the punishments be appropriate to the level of crime. Some empires though have a system that is considered harsh, to scare off other from even thinking about commiting a crime.

The punishments on this list, along with the Crime list from last week, are a preview of an upcoming generator pdf, called, imaginatively “Crime and Punishment” and will be part of the Empire Builder range. There will be 100 crimes listed, along with 100 punishments, some much more severe than others.
