I killed someone as part of a quest in Gorhart. He wasn't an enemy per se (I sided with bandits on this one) so I incurred a bounty after I killed him. Here's what my current stats look like:
As you can see, my bounty is currently 5,292 because I assaulted and murdered an innocent. To my surprised, when I walked outside, directly after the murder, none of the guards seemed to care. No one rushed to arrest me. I even tried to talk to them to see if that would trigger something and that didn't work. Why aren't the guards doing anything?
