Bounty HuntingFollow

Ever since I was a bounty hunter in Star Wars Galaxies I have been craving for some kind of bounty hunting system in a mmorpg. I thought it was the most exciting thing I have ever done in any game. I would love to see something like this in RIFT! I'm thinking something like a bulletin of open bounties that anyone can pick up and receive a reward when the deed is done. There are a lot of possibilities with this kind of content.

What do you all think?

I highly doubt there will be any kind of Bounty Hunting system in the game. I could be wrong but it does not seem like there will be.
I think you will be looking forward to Star Wars The Old Republic then where you can be a bounty hunter once again

I agree that it was awesome to be able to hunt down a Jedi in SWG, but I don't think that it will work in Rifts. First, it worked in SWG because of the lore and also because Jedi were an alpha class. In Rift, there is no alpha class, everyone is on an even keel if you will. With that said, on normal PvE servers, pvp will be consensual, and getting hunted just doesn't fit with that model. It could work on a PvP server I guess, but now the lore is missing (i.e. why is this guy being hunted?)

What I could see is a consensual list that gives the server permission to flag you for this type of engagement. You give the server permission to put you on a random list, and as someone goes to the "board", they can pick from a few different bounties. In order to do that though, there would have to be a reverse reward for the hunted, should he/she beat the hunter. But I agree, I do miss those days of SWG. They quite a few cool unique features.
