Secret murder is one of the most serious crimes an Orlanthi could commit.

Murder vs. Secret murder

The Orlanthi believe that a murder committed publicly, or with others' knowledge, can be bad, but is not necessarily unforgivable if a wergild is paid to the deceased's family or clan.

A murder committed in secrecy is a much graver offense: if the perpetrator is found (or even suspected), retribution may come in the form of outlawing, execution, or a punitive raid.
