To get an idea of how many Murder Counts you have, say this in-game: "I Must Consider My Sins"
You will get one of the following responses...
If you have more than 5 short terms:
* "If thou should return to the land of the living, the innocent shall wreak havoc upon thy soul."
If you have more than zero short terms:
* Although thou hast slain the innocent, thy deeds shall not bring retribution upon thy return to the living.
If you have zero short terms, but more than zero long terms:
* Fear not, thou hast not slain the innocent in some time...
No long or Short term counts:
* Fear not, thou hast not slain the innocent.
