Most punishmable crimes a citizen can commit are due to not generating enough chaos, or going against the Council in some way. Punishments and executions are performed day and night in The Amphitheater, and the public is encouraged to attend. A citizen can access a schedule of upcoming punishments and executions via their ego bracer, and attend whatever piques their interest.
Any spells used by a Council Reaper are likely to be of the highest caliber.

The bridle refers to a torture method in which the victim is forced to wear a metal device around their head, ass, and/or groin.

A citizen sentenced to God-Tending is forced into the role of Council Fodder. These expendables are used by The Unseen Ones to tend to the citygods' various needs, such as feeding, bathing, and sexual needs. Council Fodder are almost always killed on the job, but not always.
During gorging, the spells Appetize and Starve are cast on the victim, and they’re provided with an enormous pile of food they will then helplessly consume until they burst.

A victim subjected to inanimate confinement is forcibly transformed into an object for a designated period of time. The object is usually something degrading or unpleasant, and something that will then be used by citizens. Examples may include garbage cans, urinals, toilets, rugs, or similar items.
