Bounty Rules:

What are Bounties?

Bounties are rewards or payments offered by one player to attack or capture another specific player for an rp reason. They are not considered RDM, if they are executed correctly by following the below rules.



  1. Bounties require a public lore-worldbuilding post announcing the bounty as well as the general reason why the bounty is being placed. The bountied player should be @'d if possible, and otherwise should be notified. Failure to notify the player could result in punishment. If the player is evading being notified please file a ticket. If you're otherwise unsure of how to notify a player please file a ticket.
  2. Bounties expire after 7 days and must be renewed with a new post if it isn't fulfilled within that 7 day period. To renew the bounty you must wait an additional 1 day after the expiration beforehand. Bounties can only be renewed 3 times at most, attempting to renew more then 3 times may result in the invalidation of the bounty or punishment.
  3. Bounty makers must get the Moderation team's approval within a General Question ticket before posting the bounty. The Bounty Maker should be able to provide RP Reasoning and Evidence to the Moderation team.
  4. Bounties are complete on the 1st kill - or capture if applicable - of the Bountied individual. Standard rules apply after the bounty is completed.
  5. If, when attempting to collect a bounty, you die to the bountied individual - or someone attempting to protect them from bounty collection - your items and gear are forfeited to the individual who killed you. You cannot use your failure to collect the bounty as an rp reason to kill them or otherwise.
  6. Bounty collectors can keep gear acquired from killing the Bountied Individual if they are the ones to complete the bounty.
  7. A bounties value must be in excess or equal to $5000.
  8. A bounty does not dictate a players characters death and the Bountied Individual's character is not dead if the bounty is completed.
  9. If a player wants to collect a bounty and dies to the bountied individual or someone attempting to protect them from the bounty collection while in the attempt of collecting the bounty they cannot make another attempt at collecting the bounty within the current bounty 7-day period.
  10. Toxicity rules still apply, if the Moderation team has reason to believe you are intentionally using bounties to harass a player then punishment may occur.
  11. The Moderation team can determine the validity of a bounty at their leisure.
