BOUNTY HUNTING INFORMATION


This is a list of guidelines for being a bounty hunter and/or placing a bounty on another character, either an NPC or a player-character.

We'd really like to avoid player-characters having a "hit" put on their heads without their knowledge, especially if it's planned out in a friends-locked community. To avoid this, we've created an official channel through which those kinds of plots can be carried out. Any normal murder, kidnapping, or other type of thing that's been worked out between players is perfectly fine.

However, if your character wants to specifically take someone out for major plot-related reasons, please use the following resources. This also includes helpful information for characters who are apped with a mind to becoming a bounty hunter.

All questions about bounty hunting or requests to put a bounty on a player-character's head should be posed to Amy or RW via PM, AIM, email, or plurk. Contact information can be found on the player contact information page
. Contact information for RW can also be found on the mod contact information page.

How Bounty Hunting Works

A Little History
Prior to 2012, the bounty hunting system was run by a woman known only as St. Matthew out of the bar in Sector Four known as "Mugshots". On January 27, 2012, the barmaid who ran Mugshots was shot and forced to retire. On January 30, 2012, Death of the Endless ([personal profile] thehighcost) replaced the injured barmaid, and Deathstroke the Terminator ([personal profile] terminates) was appointed by St. Matthew to be the middle man between the bounty hunters of Siren’s Port and herself (as seen here).
Who is Deathstroke the Terminator? Also known as Slade Wilson (though not to the public), Deathstroke the Terminator is a mercenary by trade who hails from the DC Universe (pre-Reboot). His responsibilities include helping people register as bounty hunters, confirming that a bounty has been caught, and keeping other bounty hunters in line. He’s a no-nonsense, ex-military man who expects efficiency and certain degree of professionalism out of the people he’s supervising. He can generally be found in Mugshots bar in Sector 4. If your character is a registered bounty hunter, they’ve met at least once.

Who is Death of the Endless? Also known as Didi to everyone in Siren's Port, Death is the personification of the idea of death who hails from the comic book series Sandman. Her responsibilities include running the bar, Mugshots, keeping the ranking system up to date, and promoting the bounty hunting system. In contrast to Deathstroke, she's a lively, friendly, fun loving person who expects people to have a good time with what they're doing. She can generally be found in Mugshots bar in sector 4, though she is known to travel throughout the city everyday. If your character has visited the bar, then they've definitely met Death at least once.
Bounty hunting is killing or capturing a character for money.
Basically, if an organization or person wants a character dead or captured (dead or alive), they can offer a certain amount of money up to the bounty hunters of the City and the bounty hunters will then do the research needed to find that character. Upon finding the character and either killing or capturing them, they would return the character or their body to the central bounty hunting office, and would receive the payment offered for that bounty.

Since the NPC, St. Matthew, has stepped back from the limelight, all bounty hunters will deal with Deathstroke the Terminator and Death.

New bounties will be posted as others go out of commission. A bounty that is out of commission has either been caught by a player character or has been killed. These are listed on two separate pages, and those that have been captured may be re-used at a later date.

Players may also submit NPC bounties, which will be reviewed, and posted along with the other “mugshots”. To submit a bounty, go here.

To register as a bounty hunter, a character must go through Deathstroke. You can either contact RW for a log with him at Mugshots bar, call Deathstroke on his office line, or you can handwave the registration, and simply fill out the form here.

Putting a Price on Someone's Head

You can put a bounty on a player character's head.
If your character wants to put a bounty on the head of a player character then, as stated earlier, the plot must be worked out between both players. When a bounty is requested by a player character, the character requesting the bounty must have funds to cover the bounty themselves. Please be realistic when it comes to the amount of money a bounty costs and how much money your character could conceivably have made while in Siren's Port to date. However, if it is a plot point that your character can't pay the bounty that's fine too, for example, if you'd like the bounty hunter to come after your own character later for the money or any other related plot. Just as long as you explain this is the case, it should be good to go.


Working as a Bounty Hunter

Bounty hunting is generally a neutral job.
Though any character can be a bounty hunter for one specific faction, to facilitate a nice pool of capable bounty hunters that either side may choose from, bounty hunting is generally considered a neutral job. This means that neither faction will be pounding down your door to get you to join them, if you're a bounty hunter.


Signing up and completing a bounty.

All IC transactions go through Deathstroke’s IC contact page.

To sign up your character to hunt a bounty, you can fill out the form located here. After your comment is submitted, you will be contacted by RW or Amy, and the details of the hunt itself will be discussed.

After your character has completed a bounty, fill out the form located here. You will receive a response acknowledging the fact as well as the amount paid out.

Players will be able to use the NPC bounties listed for the purposes of acting as a bounty hunter. Please be realistic when it comes to how long it would take your bounty hunter character to find a bounty, and how much they will be receiving for the difficulty level of the bounty - don't make it too easy.

Please keep in mind that anyone abusing the bounty hunting system to make their characters overnight millionaires will likely face consequences both IC and OOC - above all, keep it realistic. Your character cannot find a high-level bounty for a lot of money in just one day.


Difficulty Levels
- A normal human with no superhuman ability would be considered a 1/10, while people with abilities that are defensive rather than offensive or non-combat abilities would still be considered 2/10 to 3/10.

- The NPCs in Siren's Port are no slouches or norms. They all have abilities, and they are mostly bitter, jaded, and very experienced - especially people on the bounty lists. The most powerful player character in Siren's Pull at any given time would be considered an approximate 9/10 for the bounty list. The most difficult bounties in the City would be nearly impossible for any one character to take out.

- Bounties are usually for either a dead target, or a live target. Bounties for targets wanted dead will be in the lower end of the range listed, while bounties for targets wanted alive will be in the higher end of the range listed. Catching a bounty alive is often more difficult than dead, so the compensation is higher, particularly in cases where the target is wanted unharmed.

- For any NPC bounty under $10,000, it is pretty safe to assume that with at least a week of IC researching/hunting your character can take the bounty payout. If your character has special tracking skills that would help cut these times, or you feel that your bounty hunting character is in some other way an exception to these guidelines, please speak to RW or Amy before commencing with bounty hunting.


How the Ranking System Works

The ranking system is only for bounty hunters.

- After becoming a registered bounty hunter, the first thing you need to do is pick a nickname. No nickname, no bounties. From then on, when you sign up to collect a bounty, you will be called by your nickname, and only by your nickname. The nickname can be anything, but no naughty words, please.

- The ranking system can be found in the bar "Mugshots", which is where the bounty hunting system is run from. The electric scoreboard is hanging on the wall when you walk into the bar, on the right.

- The score is determined by how many bounties have been collected. One point per bounty, and it will be counted to your score once you have notified Slade that the bounty has been completed. The scoreboard will be updated once a week.

- There are NPC bounty hunters in the city, and they are on the scoreboard as well. These bounty hunters collect NPC bounties as well. If you sign up to be a bounty hunter, you can handwave collecting bounties that are not on the list, within reason. Before doing so, check with RW or Amy through OOC contact.
