Fame and Blood-feud Procedures + Harrasment

The following serves as procedures to add fame and as incentive for characters to not brazenly kill people in public.

When a character performs a notable deed (or public murder) in a community there is a chance it attracts the attention of the community. Each further roll in that settlement has a +1 chance of attention.

Chance of attention is based on settlement size.
Village 1 in 4
Town 1 in 6
City 1 in 8

If a character's actions has 100% chance of attracting attention, then they get a bonus to other chance of attracting attention equal to half of the dice in other settlements. Thus a character who has a 6 in 6 chance of attracting attention in a town, gets a +3 to gaining attention in a village, town, or city.

Every time a character attracts attention, a reaction roll is made then consult the table below.
