Inside palaces in Arena (or at least in the palace in Rihad, Hammerfell) there is a back area that when you begin walking inside it says "Restricted Area! Authorized personnel only!" If you continue walking in there, which I did, a Warrior will come back and attack you. I killed the Warrior and walked back into the Main Hall without anyone else attacking me, but will people in the palace like me less now? Or will I become a felon and guards will attack me?

Or does the game not have anything as advanced as that and it will progress as if nothing had happened? Thanks!

    Wait, sorry, why the downvote? Did I do something wrong?

The Elder Scrolls: Arena has no crime/bounty system like later games in the series. If you kill the guard sent to stop you, there will be no negative consequences whatsoever.

  • Awesome, you're sure of this? I believe you but just wondering if you have a source?

    I couldn't find anything about crime on the Elder Scrolls Wikia, and I found this discussion mentioning the absence of a crime system. Commented Jul 26, 2017 at 19:14
  • Perfect, good enough for me! Thanks for the answer! But do you want me to edit the question in any way so that you don't downvote it?
