Miller Peshek is known as a member of the “Thieves Guild” of KCD, so to speak, but he is willing to rat you out to Rattay guards, if he sees you stealing literally anything.
Steps to reproduce:
- Go to the Rattay mill
- Make sure you have anything marked as “stolen” on you
- Drop that item on the ground in front of Miller Peshek
- Pick it up (“steal” it)
- After this moment the bugged behavior takes place
Instead of doing nothing miller Peshek runs up to the Rattay screaming “Guards, I see a thief!”.
1 - Come to Peshek and drop the stolen bandage
2 - Pick it up (“steal” it)
3 - Peshek now runs up to Rattay to rat you out
4 - After he gets to the guards you get a fine for theft
5 - Guards come to check the “scene of the crime” at the mill
6 - And, finally, they catch you out
Why this is a bug:
Obviously, due to his shady business, miller Peshek does not want any guards to come to his mill to investigate, so should not go anywhere to report on you.
Maybe make Peshek not to react to player picking up stolen things from the ground? Or may be he should make a sarcastic commentary like “Stealing the stolen, eh?..”? But, still, he should be able to react to player’s attempts for picking the locks at his farm. Anyway, he, obviously, should not call the guards on you, after all.
