Intro
]


Established shortly before the country-wide ban on weaponry, and funded by the government, the Bounty Offices of Morytania (BOoM) allow trained warriors and monster-slayers alike to help out their country, and to be paid finely for it.

Being a bounty hunter comes with perks, but the job isn't for those who are faint-of-heart. Bounty hunters are completely exempt from tithes. Additionally, they are permitted to carry any weaponry they see fit, as long as those weapons are not silver or blisterwood.

Why was this done? Officially, the ruling classes in Morytania claim it's a fine success, the removal of weaponry across the country - it means that terorists and outlaws will have much more difficult times obtaining their equipment. ....however, outlaws and terrorists still exist, and so the BOoM was created in advance - so that Morytania could deal with such problems.

"Why not let the Vyrewatch handle it?" - this is a common question which is sent to the Bounty Office. The simple answer is, the Bounty Office means that humans can be employed at good rates, being given food and gold aplenty.

What is required of a bounty hunter? Simply that they have nerves of steel, a quick sword hand (or crossbow trigger), that they follow the law, and that they hunt down and kill their targets without mercy. Lawful bounties, which both protect Morytania, and give the fighters food and gold. What's not to love?


After completing every bounty, on top of their pay, Bounty Hunters are given two days' worth of food and water per bounty.

THE FOLLOWING INDIVIDUALS ARE ALL ARMED AND DANGEROUS.
EACH OF THEM HAS A BOUNTY ON THEIR HEAD FOR A REASON.
"NEW MYREQUE" BOUNTIES EARN DOUBLE.


Stiv Grofur

[ ? ]

A bandosian ork, Grofur is a religious extremist who belives that all non-bandosians must pay, simply because "big high war god died". Why he chose Morytania to take his anger out on, however, isn't known. What is known, however, is the last known sight of his attack. Find out where his hideout is, and eliminate him.

Specialist Equipment
]


On top of the coin, the food and the water, the Bounty Office of Morytania can and will offer certain "extra" items to Bounty Hunters to help them complete their jobs. Who they're given to and when largely varies, and it's up to Randall, the Bounty Master, to decide whether or not you deserve one.


[
Bounty Hunter Duster
]

For those who've completed their first bounty, they recieve an all-purpose, all-weather duster, otherwise known as "The Hunters' Trenchcoat". Mainly for recognition as a Bounty Hunter, this optional coat has many deep pockets, and can help hide and muffle a set of armor underneath.


[
Pistol - Crossbows
]

Up to two pistol-crossbows may be given out to Bounty Hunters who've completed more challenging bounties. These crossbows are small, easy to fire quickly, and surprisingly accurate. They've saved many Hunters' lives.


[
Heavy Crossbow
]

A very powerful piece of equipment indeed, this lightweight, high-power crossbow can tear holes through whatever you point it at. Generally used for a single-shot ambush, this crossbow is exceptionally useful, and lightweight and sturdy enough to lug around Morytania!


[
Specialist Bolts
]

Seriously show off your skills as a grand Bounty Hunter and you might earn yourself some "Specialist bolts". These come in various different "flavours", including:
Storm bolts

Silver-tipped bolts

Explosive bolts
(Expensive!)
Magic-sapping bolts (Bakriminel bolts)

Licenses
]


Once you're a bounty hunter, you get some special perks which come with the job. These perks and privileges vary dependent on who you are and how well you preform out in the field. Remember, the government's paying for your services! So, with such power backing you, these perks and privileges are absolute. Nobody, not even the Vyrewatch, not even the leader of a coven, can legally interfere with you when on business.

Your status as a Bounty Hunter is represented through one thing only : your Bounty Hunter Card, which has your name, details, and some traces of magic to make the card traceable incase it's stolen, or incase you die on an assignment. You MUST carry this card with you whenever you're on duty, and whenever you're carrying weaponry in Morytania.


A Bounty Hunter card:
Renders the owner exempt from ALL tithes, including tithe-based tolling.
Gives the owner free reign to carry weapons, both on-display and concealed carry.
Entitles the owner to limitedly use supplies offered by the Bounty Offices of Morytania


A Bounty Hunter card does
NOT
:
Entitle the holder to attack anyone they feel like.
Entitle the holder to carry blisterwood or silver-alloy weaponry.
Entitle the holder to carry a large amount of holy water.



When on an assignment, you will be given a
Writ of Execution
. This may be shown to any authorities who try to interfere with your bounty hunting, and will prove that you are legally able to kill your target. IF YOU DO NOT BRING PROOF THAT YOUR TARGET IS TO BE LEGALLY KILLED BY YOU, WE CANNOT HELP YOU THROUGH THE CONSEQUENCES.

Special Licenses
]


Morytania is categorically filled up with various beasts which just refuse to die under normal circumstances. Acknowledging this, seasoned Bounty Hunters may be given special Licenses, which will allow them to carry normally-illegal equipment with them.


[
Silver Certificate
]

Ghouls, ghosts, demons, nechryael, banshees...all of the above and more are hard-to-kill magical creatures. So, in light of this, skilled Bounty Hunters are sometimes given certificates along with silver, or silver-alloy, weaponry. A Silver Certificate means that the Bounty Hunter in question is legally permitted to carry silver weaponry.



[
Silver + Blister Certificate
]

Almost unheard of, very very few Bounty Hunters have ever held one of these licenses. This entitles the holder to posession of not only silver and silver-alloy weapons, but of blisterwood, a hard-to-use material which is exceedingly effective in combat - against vampyres. Since rogue vampyres are normally dealt with by enforcers or by other Vyrewatch, these certificates are only handed out to the most chillingly deadly Bounty Hunters.

Disclaimer
]


This is set in Silver Team's version of Morytania, which is to say it is semi-private. This means that anyone is free to join, but they are able to choose which parts of the lore and environment they choose to recognize. Likewise, we are free to choose which elements of your character we recognize, simply so the story doesn't get borked up.

Content may vary. Some bounties may be more humorous, others may be more serious. Some might be short and simple, others might be long and involved. Usually from the description and name of a bounty, you'll be able to tell what kind of bounty it will be, however you can always ask the GM (usually Last Deterro) in advance if you're unsure.
