Common Cultural Taboos

 

Most major cultures and societies develop concepts of certain activities, practices and contracts that are acceptable and unacceptable within their structure. These are often a combination of religious, criminal and civil laws, but may also include cultural reactions that have no actual persecution or prosecution associated with them.

 

This list and rating system is intended as a guideline for developing such for each of the major cultures/societies within the Zamani setting.

 

Rating System:

 

  • Capital (Death)
  • Criminal (Imprisoned)
  • Illegal (Fined)
  • Unacceptable (Legal but frowned on/Discriminated For)
  • Acceptable
  • Encouraged (Rewarded, Taught, Given Holidays, etc.)
  • Unknown (Technologically Unavailable)
