    I thought it would be pretty cool to be able to set a bounty on someone. Let's say I want a bounty on a person, I would do /bounty <amount> . The one who kills him gets the amount of money.

    I think it's cool but I don't think the player should receive jail time for it because someone paid for it

    +1. Another great addition to the gameplay. I have a few ideas to make this a little more interesting but I will suggest them a little after when I come in-game.

    Would the amount of money be paid from a bank or wallet?

    I can also see this being abuseable because someone sets a bounty on you, so you grab an alt and kill your self, stealing that person's money.

    You'd have to pay to set the bounty. Say you wanted a 10k bounty on someone, I say you should pay 75% or even 100%. Definitely not for free.

    Sorry, over reacted a little bit. But paying only 75% would be easy money generating with an alt

    I was thinking the bounty would just be like normal bounty on a head. 1 gold per 5 bounty.

    Paying 75% of the money would not be abusable because it would be similar to a normal head. Maybe 50% return then? Because if you give someone 10k bounty then that will cost you 7500 gold. Then if you kill on alt you will get 50% of the money. Or Or Or... You could go with my personal idea of having the head go to the player that set the bounty for 50% of the bounty set. That way the bounty setter gets the head and the bounty hunter gets 5k. Not abuse able at all. Now I don't know how it would work with different people putting bounties on the same person. Maybe the first person to put a bounty on someone would get the head and the others would just be putting bounty.

    It should be because the current bounty hunting system isn't good either. It would encourage PvP among the developed players, while the new players get to learn the game and develop.
