Well i have been googling a lot on medival. Since Santharia doesn't have all the information i need...i am filling up gaps with information mirroring our own world. I came across this... And was wondering, has santharia simular punishments to enforce it's law? Tell me what you think of this...



ELIZABETHAN CRIMES OF THE COMMONERS
■Theft
■Cut purses
■Begging
■Poaching
■Adultery
■Debtors
■Forgers
■Fraud
■Dice coggers

Theft for stealing anything over 5 pence resulted in hanging - a terrible price to pay for poor people who were starving. Even such small crimes such as stealing birds eggs could result in the death sentence. Punishment for poaching crimes differed according to when the crime was committed - Poaching at night resulted in the punishment by death, whereas poaching during the day time did not. Begging was a serious crime during the Elizabethan era. The Elizabethan government made begging a crime and therefore illegal and 'poor beggars' As their punishment 'poor beggars' would be beaten until they reached the stones that marked the town parish boundary. The beatings given as punishment were bloody and merciless and those who were caught continually begging could be sent to prison and even hanged as their punishment.

Punishment for commoners during the Elizabethan period included the following:
■Hanging
■Burning
■The Pillory and the Stocks
■Whipping
■Branding
■Pressing
■Ducking stools
■The Wheel
■Boiling in oil water or lead (usually reserved for poisoners )
■Starvation in a public place
■Cutting off various items of the anatomy - hands, ears etc
■The Gossip's Bridle or the Brank
■The Drunkards Cloak
