| Note: The bounty system has been completely disabled
since publish 16, June 2002.
The score on the bounty board is determined by the amount
of short-term murder counts. So a murderer with 2 short-term
murder counts and 100gp bounty will rank higher than a murderer
with 1 short-term and 5 long-term murder counts and 10.000gp
Note that if you try to turn a head into a guard and the
guard tells you that you must take it to a different precinct,
you have a head from the old bounty system. You cannot turn
a head from the old bounty system into guards under the
new system. Either discard the head or keep it as a trophy.
The following is a summary for how Bounties will work in
the Reputation system.
- Every time you report a Murderer, you are given the
choice to contribute gold to a bounty. The gold is automatically
removed from your bank account.
- When you kill a Murderer, you must chop up the Murderer's
corpse in order to retrieve the head. (This will result
in a small Karma loss but it will not flag you as a Criminal)
- You can take the bountied Murderer's head to any guard
in any town and give it to the guard in order to collect
the bounty. (This will result in a small Karma gain equal
to the amount lost for chopping up the corpse.)
- Banks will have bounty boards that list the top bountied
Murderers on the shard.
- Bounties decay after 2 weeks if the Murderer does not
get reported during the 2 weeks. Any gold in the bounty
is returned to the economy (not to the victims who added
- A Bounty remains active even after a Murderer loses
his Murderer status. Only after the 2 weeks has gone by
will the bounty be removed.
