Situation:
- Started a game as the Luddic Church (via Nexerelin, but pretty sure is unrelated), and as such I'm not hostile to the Luddic Path by default.
- Looking around the Path systems, and went to Chalcedon, at which a Luddic Path Patrol was stationed
- Bought some stuff on the black market. Suspicion level was at "medium"
- Upon leaving the planet, the Pather Patrol immediately Emergency Burned towards me in standard "Hey, you look like a smuggler and we're gonna scan your cargo" way...

... And then they didn't. Instead, they asked me to pay the usual Luddic Path tithe...

... Twice.

I notice the two dialogue messages were different, so is that the Pather version of the cargo scan? But still, why did they ask for a tithe twice in a row?

Thanks for letting me know, I'll check it out!

But still, why did they ask for a tithe twice in a row?

An excess of zeal and/or greed? :)

Hah, maybe.  ;D Still caught me off-guard, considering I was trying to test something completely unrelated at the time.
