Imperial Identification Papers
One relic of the fading Empire still common in Ptolus is the use of identification papers. The Empire issues these to all citizens, and they are required for purchases over 100 gp. Guards and other officials also can demand to see one’s papers at any time. Identification papers include a person’s name, race, place of birth, current residence, occupation and a general physical description. Forgeries are fairly common, and being caught with them usually amounts to a small "fine" of about 10gp (which the guard pockets and destroys the fake papers, advising the individual to get to the Adminstration Building to get legitimate ones as soon as possible, leaving the person in the status of being a non-citizen until they do so).
