Do you think i should take a cut of the bounty when turned in? 10% Cut or something? :ph34r: Pirate needs his rum.

I think you should. Take gold up front for posting bounty.

It's more me managing a list and showing people what so and so who and what wnats dead than the Gold fer me, It's up to the people who set the bounty to pay up. Ofcourse if people want to pay me and then i pay up when the bounty is complete that's fine to it's up to other people. 

I was just on about taking a small cut fer managing the list, After all this is a dirty job and although i don't have a bounty i'm putting me head out there to be attacked. I wanna keep me ed!

Part of it is pay for you maintaining the work, part of it (should be) pay for you being the collective point to turn in and collect bounties.  Basically, you should be charging for convenience - but also integrity.  Who knows who is actually going to pay up if you don't have them collected beforehand?

HachiRoku                        :  Must type in chat window   "Christendom sends his regards" 

How can someone claim my bounty when I myself dont understand the requirements. I think Seawolf should be given the bounty and there is a difference between a requirement of a ship(like sveno) and requirement of chat. I could deny anyone my bounty by not talking in chat. Sveno cannot because he cannot deny anyone the chance. I have 1 million on Norths and Christendoms heads. A salty chat is a bonus of 2 more. You need to make it clear that there is a base bounty and requirements are a bonus. There should be no debate if Seawolf gets the cash. He killed me, period!

If the person who puts forth the bounty has special requirements, those should be met to pay the bounty.  If you were an irish furniture craftsman or something and I said, Hachi make me a round table that seats 4, but you make a square one instead.  Should I pay you for it?  It's a table right?  I want what I pay for.  

So in the future, if we're going to include special requests.....those need to be listed on the black spot thing.  The black spot image should basically read like this:

Bounty
Mark
Issuer
Special info
Expiration date

Bloody should also be paid for his time and either he should collect all bounties up front or the person who receives the money should give him a cut upon receipt.

I get what you mean but there is an issue there. Its to complicated. You want 1000 bounties in 2 weeks that noone can complete?

So what you're saying is a there should be a base Gold reward regardless of anything else added if hes dead hes dead, then any other requirements added on just increase the Value so for example, Sink Roku for 1million Gold if you did it in a 7th Rate get 1 Million added on for a total2 million.

Only so much room i have those spots i don't want to go to mad putting info on the spots otherwise it look cluttered, want to keep it simple as possible this time around.

Hmm does everybody else agree with Iroquois Confederacy?

It's hard to say ill collect the bounty for dispersal as that comes to a trust issue, I'll honour my end i'll happily hold on to the bounty and payout upon completion but the issue arises like i said with trust on the bigger bountys like the 3 million 500 combat marks and 20 Pvp mark one would he really trust me to hold onto that until the bounty is complete?

i doubt it. I may be a pirate but i'm a honourable one.

I think trust is earned and if you are going to be the escrow for advertisement and payouts of bounties then I'd argue for that being the way it worked.  If it turns out you're untrustworthy, or not in the game enough to make it work, then people will stop using you. :)

It's basically black and white.  If you want to allow "special details", you'll have to keep crack of them as a neutral party.  OR just simply remove the option for any special details and simply make it ... a kill is a kill.

Another option would be to create a new forum heading and instead of having all the bounties at the top of the page, they create a new sub topic with all the details listed.  This would remove you from the equation unless you just wanted to do graphics.

I think best option is Kill is a kill, i just show that these guys are hunted for atleast X amount any other rules etc will have to be determined by the guy who fulfils it and the guy who set the mark.

That should be the baseline :)

Extra bounty for fancy messages and kinky gestures.

Okay so im going to change the Rules abit so when you put a target on someone you put  a base price of whatever amount any other added requirements  etc is up to you and the guy who completed the mark.

A kill is a Kill and the amount of gold said will be paid for them dying regardless of how they died the only thing that could change the price is what ship they were in when they sunk (to stop people killing them while there in a basic cutter) Everything else is decided by the person who put the mark

I'm just listing who is targeted and the amount you'll get upon killing or capturing them.

Okay i've resorted the rules abit and put in the... A kill is a kill so im going to show on the List the targets name, the gold you'll atleast get upon killing them and who set the mark so the person who completes it can get in contact with the person who set the mark.

Meaning all the rewards is decided between the Marker and the Killer, i just show how much the Marker is willing to pay upon death and who the target is 

Optional: Also If people want and trust me, give me the gold and i'll pay the guy who completes the mark upon completion. If they mark is cancelled i'll refund the Gold.
