So, I recently picked up the “Local Hero” perk, and suddenly I noticed that in a LOT of areas I get the notification that “people will notice your bad behaviour”.
Currently Im in Talmberg, and my reputation is 74 (overall), 98 (villagers), 74 (soldiers), and 50 (quarrymen). Yet guards still want to beat me up and then just say “you’re not worth it” when I surrender.
What gives? I also noticed the same thing in the area around Rovna (my reputation is 0 there, though I’ve never even done anything in the area. I havent stolen, robbed, etc etc. I only killed some bandits in the area nearby).
I HAVE done my share of evil things, but I dont see how those were possibly related (other end of the map), and its odd how the reputation in Talmberg at least is still high regardless. And again, this all started when I took the “Local hero” perk. Before that I never had issues.
