It would be awesome to have a formal way to sign contracts between people.
I propose that we be able to purchase contracts from denizens that can be signed by 1 or more people. Anyone would be able to edit the contract until the first signature was placed upon it. This would get rid of a lot of he-said-she-said nonsense and allow people to make binding agreements with penalties written in. For instance one could make an agreement to provide a certain amount of herbs within 1 year of the signing and it be written in that if the herbs aren't delivered within 1 year there is a 10% increase in the amount to be delivered and if the contract is broken they will be hired upon by a mark. There would be no issuing because the contract was agreed upon and signed by both parties.
I personally would love to be able to make promises to people and back it up with more than just my word. Would be wonderful for shop rental agreements, agreements between clans/houses/cities, even marriage certificates and adoption papers. They could be preserved for 10k and copies could be made by one of the people who signed the contract.
It could even be an artifact or SoW item like a letter kit, allowing adventurers to take on a more "legal" role by selling their officiating/licensing/mitigation talents.
