"That sounds stressful and confusing."
"There's a lot of 'em. Like the lands to the north. Imagine if the pog lived two weeks away and didn't know any of our names? And what would we do if Mahan or Link stole stuff?"
"...Take it to the pog? Maybe they had a good reason, maybe it was a mistake, whatever. If they were just greedy... Lecture 'em and tell them to give it back or they're not welcome here?"
"If there are lots of people, lots and lots and lots of people, probably someone steals something every day. Assembling the pog every day would not be good. They've got lives to live too. A judge is almost like... Someone the pog asks to keep the worst troublemakers in line so they don't have to. That person figures out if there was a good reason or a mistake and how to keep their noses clean in the future and the pog can worry about more important stuff than a missing basket."
