OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.
Jacyn and the others in his circle don't worry about hiding their handiwork because no one thinks it is wrong, or at least actionable. The stablemaster at the inn deplores that Brand comes to work with a black eye, but it never occurs to him to confront Jacyn about it.

Perhaps not so unique in the north.
