Hey guys I have a couple of questions about Bounty Hunters...

1) How much should they be paid?

2) Should Intrigue (Gather Information for you D&D Junkies :P) be part of the Bounty Hunter Packet?

3) Should Law be part of the Bounty Hunter Packet?

Thanks in advance.
Cheers & God Bless!

Shouldn’t this have gone into The Midwife’s Hospice?

Anyhow, questions 2 and 3 can only be answered specific to a setting. For modern bounty hunters in the US, both skills should be in the package. For bounty hunters in the late Roman Empire, who were nothing but headhunters collecting the fees the government paid at times for every German head delivered to the authorities, neither skill should be in the package.

Question 1 is also rather specific to setting. To what degree is the local government relying on freelancers (bounty hunters)? How desperate is the government? How often do bounty hunters collect? To return to the example from the late Roman Empire: In this case, the individual fee was comparatively small, but then bounty hunters could just kill any male German barbarian to collect, so they collected quite often.
