Crime refers to the act of stealing crops planted by others or assaulting other players of the same faction by activating bloodlust mode (Ctrl + F).
If players have committed a crime, there will be footprints, small bloodstains, or large bloodstains in the area.
Report footprints or blood prints to increase Crime and Infamy points of the criminals.


 
Few Pointers regarding Crime and Infamy Points:

► The pirates are out of the law's surveillance, there are no bloodstains from assault and murder. Likewise, if a player assaults / kills a pirate, blood does not fall to the ground.
► If the Crime Points accumulated to more than 50 points, the player becomes a wanted person, and if the character dies, they will be given the option to go to prison or stand a trial.
► If the Infamy Points reach 3000 or more, it will not disappear even after a trial, so players must decrease the points by going through the quest of penance to reduce the Infamy points.
► When a small bloodstain appears, the crime points increases immediately and the criminal history is automatically reported.
► By clicking a large bloodstain, this will generate a crime report pop-up window to the character who died.
► A pop-up window is automatically shown even when a dead character approaches a large bloodstain.
● When the wanted player dies, the pop-up window for the crime report will not be listed on the board.

STEP2. Report on crime

Users who witness or pass the crime scene can report from the crime evidence.
At this time, if the offender's crime points exceed 50, the player will get a “Wanted” debuff status.
When a crime is reported, the criminal receives crime points and infamy points.

STEP3. Arrest

Users with a Wanted buff status are arrested according to the following conditions and moved to the judge.
► If perpetrators are assigned to the player wearing the executor's certificate.
► When killed by guards or other players.

STEP4. Start of the Trial

When the perpetrator moves to the court, five juries will be selected and the trial begins.
The jury order is by continent and the jury will see the criminal record of the perpetrator.
STEP5. Verdict

The time of imprisonment depends on the player’s crime points.
