I do know I can kill them using a bow and nobody will care, if I don't get noticed.

Does it have any side effects? I do know that they "help" me when a dragon attacks, but they are useless and I have to kill the dragon myself. Is it ok to kill all the guards? will they re-spawn?

    Eventually the Joke will be sitting in a pub and saying "I used to be funny, until I got an arrow in the knee."

    Just make sure you also kill any witnesses.

    @IAdapter Whenever I kill all witnesses, after killing the last witness it tells me "Last witness killed 1000 bounty removed" or something like that.

Guards do respawn, so if they don't notice you killing a guard it doesn't make that much of a difference.


You can pretty much kill everyone you like in Skyrim, however there are consequences if you are caught. If you kill a guard without anyone seeing you, you will have no witness to the crime, and should be in the clear.
