*** That being said, they can't actually ''enforce'' it. As Kirito pointed out, most shopkeepers don't bother checking the list to see who's blacklisted or not, so just about any non-Spriggan can do as they want. The best their leaders can do is exile or banish them, which isn't that much of an issue if they're self-sufficient, and you can't send them to prison since killing in a PvP game isn't against the law.
