So your PCs have won their quest, be it slaying a mighty dragon with a magical weapon of old, beating a crime boss, or vanquishing a mighty wizard or wight, and they have taken possession of the treasure. Chest after chest of gold and silver coins, gold bars, and every kind of jewel and gemstone is theirs for the taking. If they are not careful, they may find that their trouble has only just begun.
Normal punishments tend to involve either fines, imprisonment, amputation or execution, but not all crimes are going to be bad enough to be executed for, and imprisonment is often a waste of resources. Here are thirty punishments for those who get out of line and get caught and convicted.

Weapons or equipment that is heavily relied on can be "named". Then the equipment begins to gain abilities beyond those of normal equipment. They might siphon off some of the experiances of their owners (1 to 5%) and level up on thier own. Could be an unintenitional way of creating artifacts. Ships could become sturdier or seem to just barely outrun the worse of a storm that would have surely sunk another vessle, swords could fumble less or resist dulling more, a farmers plow could turn stones aside easier. Anything that is depended on as much as an inividual can depend on as much as another individual could be "named".
