Language and Money

The language in Ephebe is Ephebian and the currency is Ephebian money.

Other areas with the same language and currency include Il Drim and the Chronides farmstead.

Crime and Punishment

research

Killing hoplites and capital guards will make all of them aggressive toward you. After you've been killed, they will forgive you.

Stealing from NPCs and shops will increase the cost of items at shops. Costs will also be increased if you kill too many citizens. Slaughtering the traders makes you banned from purchasing goods.

If you become notorious enough for stealing and killing in Ephebe your name will be written on the bronze stele before the Citadel. The names on the bronze stele are erased once in a while.

  • Bast on the west end of Eureka Chase wants fish and will reward you with ... dexterity boost
  • Cubal in his own temple wants some coal and will reward you with intelligence boost, strength boost or protection.

  • Divine protection for a certain amount of time
  • One point strength and one point intelligence boost
  • Two points strength boost

Note that the description for the Achievement: Sacred Stabber achievement suggests though that wizards and witches are excluded from receiving the rewards. research However, they may still sacrifice animals at altars for the sacrifice achievements.
