A Crime is an activity performed using Nerve in return for cash rewards in addition to Crime Experience.


Details

  • Crimes require nerve. More successes increase your nerve bar, failures decrease it; A hidden stat called Crime Experience determines what Natural Nerve Bar you have. The maximum natural Nerve bar is 60, and the maximum total is 125, though only your natural bar actually increases your success rate at crimes. For more information on nerve, bars go to the Nerve page.
  • Whenever you get sent to jail for a crime it hurts your nerve bar, when you get sent to the hospital it is not known to hurt your nerve bar.
  • Result odds are relative based on how often they appear in crimes they are measured here by rare, semi-rare, occasionally, and often, but an "often" green isn't the same as an "often" red, again it is in comparison to other crimes going red.
