Something I've thought about often but never quite got round to so I'm putting it out for feedback:

The peace knot
Movement within Waterdeep sporting weapons of war* is discouraged but not necessary illegal. Such weapons are routinely bound to their sheaths (or equivalent) with a complex "peace knot" tied by the City Guard. City Guard are exempt. At need the knot can quickly be cut off (1 round). Other weapons are permissible for self defense and are not subject to a peace knot.
For a first-time offender unsecured weapons of war are subject to confiscation and a fine of up to the same value. Registered Adventuring Bands are exempt from the peace knot but the entire band is held responsible for violence committed within the city limits by one of its members with a weapon of war.
A perpetrator of violence has the onus of proving innocence. City Watch, Nobles, Waterdavian citizens, employees in the lawful discharge of their duties and Registered Adventuring Bands are given greater leeway (in that order).

*For 5th Ed weapons of war are melee weapons with a base damage greater than 1d6 or any primarily ranged weapon, including trident, spear & javelin.

The winding mechanism (or whatever draws back the string.)

Mace base damage =1d6 so not applicable.

(Melee weapon with 1d6 dam or less would not require a peace knot.)

So, looks like only the longsword needs to be tied.

The others are d6 + STR bonus.

I would assume Sue would know of this rule, and have tied his knot before leaving bolt hole house.

Surely a watchman wouldnt need to adhere to this?
But if he is hiding his association he would.

And yes that's fine, she didnt bring the Crossbow anyway, assume she has a peace knot for it and its still locked up at home.
She just has the mace and her dagger.

If he was openly wearing his tabard, I wouldn't think he would use a peace knot. But he is trying to blend in a bit, so he will tie up the longsword.

Sue's not authorized to tie a peace knot (although he could still attempt it).
Any of his equipment that would require one, would already have a peace knot (unless you choose otherwise)
