Is it possible to kill all of the guards in a town? Ideally, I'd like to do this secretly so the entire town doesn't see my deeds and put a bounty on my head.
Edit: I was questing in Markarth and was told by a guard to back off and stop being nosy. I didn't and when I went to the Shrine of Talos I was set upon by a bunch of guards. Now I have a huge bounty and I had to sneak/kill my way out of the city. Every time I killed a group of guards the bounty was reduced by $1000, but I still have a $30,000 bounty.
I haven't even been through 1/3 of the city yet and know there has to be a lot of quests, so what do I do? The only solution seems to kill every single guard (and inhabitant).
