    I think they would need to fix the bounty system... I really never understood why they took it out instead of tweaking it intelligently.

    If they would make it so that the player who placed the bounty was the only one who could turn the head in... or if you were the bounty hunter who killed the red you could turn in the head for like 5k per head and turn in that players head once per day.

    i think just when you place a bounty for X amount of gp on someone it comes out of your bank and then is given to whomever turns it in would be suficient. mainly it would be cool just to be able to have the heads of entire guilds locked down on display. it would be like having a set or something....dang i just need sonsos to complete the set!

    They took head-chopping out when this game became pg13(equivalent) and the parents complained. Too bad I say, bounties were profitable. I am all for the return of them. I miss the Most Wanted boards.

    Agreed.

    I'd love to show how many KOC & TNT heads I've collected. And then when I get hungry, make them into beef jerky!!!!! That was a cool feature. Too bad Puffy wasn't playing when they had houses that you actually had to lock / unlock the doors in order to get in. :D

    They can't put it back in, they'd lose the 'teen' rating

    Also it was very abused by people collecting 'arranged' bounties on friends - a bit like some people gain justice now, but with a cash incentive.

    There's no reason that a bounty system without decapitating ppl wouldn't work. But I do miss cutting off the head of Sir Bart on GL.

    so make siege an r rated shard lol. I'd love to see that- I think it would encourage more pvp- I know it would for me. Th see the heads of your enemies lying there in front of the fire! How could you ever stop hunting?

    All those that think the taking of heads was abolished for a "teen" rating have missed the boat...

    The taking of heads, chopping bodies, and making jerky was taken out when many EU countries told EA they would ban the game from shelves if it was left in. Cannibalism is not looked upon quite as favorably across the pond, apparently.

    Better would be that any player could go to a NPC Sheriff < we have one
    in Trinsic> and obtain a warrant with the name of the player on it. The
    Sherrif will stamp the number of murder counts this person has < from the
    data base of players of the shard> and if this criminal if targeted by the
    warrant holder, the warrant holder is paid 10g X the number of murder counts
    after the target player is killed by the warrant holder. This warrant can only
    target alive character. This can be done any number of times but only once
    per day. Yes, make the criminal pay!
    Anyone who does not have enough money in bank vault stays dead for 24
    hours.

    This is a horrible suggestion. Old man. People will be massing up against one person just to take em out for 24 hours. I don't think you play on siege as much.

    but there is something there. An in-game bounty that can be taken out on someone; a wanted poster board in each town; the individual making the complaint must anty up such and such amount to make the complaint, in addition to the bounty then afixed. The wanted poster should also have the complaintants' name, so that the wanted, hearing that he/she IS wanted, may know where to place the blame. Putting a bounty on someones' head would therefore be somewhat costly, and could have repercusions for the one requesting the warrant. I'm thinking that on occasion the accuser would be the one to perish.
