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.

It is distinguishable from errors in observation or judgment, or rumors, urban legends, pseudosciences or April Fools’ Day events that are passed along in good faith by believers or as jokes.”. A hoax can be a fun way to pass time or even used as a method  psychological manipulation, designed to make your enemies think one thing whilst you prepare another. This can be useful when your opponent has a much greater power than you but doesn’t know it. Also, trickster gods can use them to mess with the minds of mortals for their own amusement.

The ones listed below are all “real” hoaxes that have occurred and can be used as the basis of hoaxes and rumours and your games and stories.
