Started a new game yesterday and have played a few hours. In every tavern, about 3/4s of the people there are bald. Every Happy Widow, Traveler, Ransom Broker, and host. I think some of the others as well. The mercenaries don't seem to be affected and I don't recall whether the farmers are. I sort of feel like its some woke culture thing, but since that didn't exist in this time period, I'm passing it off as a worldwide lice pandemic & everyone needs to shave their heads. Btw, my character this time is a long-haired female, so its not a reflection of my character.
