Crimes such as theft, assault, and murder will warrant you a bounty. Unlike in previous games, your bounty will no longer be recognized everywhere you go. Your bounty will remain in the particular city/town that you got it in. Bounty hunters are a new edition to the series and will hunt you down, even if you are in a city which you do not have a bounty in . Skyrim will be implementing an improved witness system. After killing anyone who saw you do a crime, a message will appear that says "There are no surviving witnesses.", allowing your crimes to go unnoticed.
