• Information • Freelancer Exchange & Bounty Board

A bright and joyful land on the surface, Rharne is a place that is full of mirth and mystery. With its capitol seated on the edge of Lake Lovalus, it serves as a busy trade city and tourist destination. Beyond the city lies the Stormlands, a sprawling golden countryside that is bursting with towns, farms and local wildlife.

Danger Ratings: All Jobs come with a "Danger Rating" that will give you a rough idea of how difficult they will be to complete. Be aware that if you take a very dangerous job and you do not take into full account the difficulty than I may just modbomb your thread to enforce the correct level of danger.


Ratings
- Combat Skills can be anything from weapon skills, unarmed skills or stealth and survival skills.
Limited Danger: Novice and Competent skills in combat should be adequate for surviving these encounters
Medium Danger:Having Competency in your main combat skills will be necessary to survive this encounter.
High Danger:Having an expert level in your main combat or skills will be necessary to survive this encounter.
Extreme Danger:You stand risking dying in these encounters no matter your skill level. Mastery is highly advised.

There's a general demand for a big statement to be made soon, a grand crime, whether a public murder, a high profile heist, or a daring kidnapping.

Looking good! I forgot to change the way I'm going to handle rewards before you actually got to claiming something, so no mistake on your part. I had changed it after the fact! But it's perfectly acceptable to claim the stated reward through the thread itself. I only ask that you submit any bounties here as well as I might have something a little extra to award you. Such as the following:

A 12 point rack: One of the Stags Dandelion took down had an impressive rack. The tines and structure of the antlers are very tough and durable, and could be used for fine crafts. Alternately, this can be sold at the market for some nels (2 wp).

For selling at the market, you need only track the sale on your ledger, linking back to this post, if you go that route.

Re: Freelancer Exchange & Bounty Board

I've replaced the seasonal bounties with two new ones. I'll be adding new bounties every so often throughout the Cycle as I think of them. The repeatable bounties are unchanged for the time being.

Here are the ones I've added:

A Message: From the less reputable Quarters of Rharne, a rumor for a job comes to those who have their ear to the ground to listen. Rumor has it that the Shadow Quarter is looking for new talent. There's a general demand for a big statement to be made soon, a grand crime, whether a public murder, a high profile heist, or a daring kidnapping. Those who perpetrate such a crime will surely be approached to be brought into the fold of this organization, or if they already belong, to climb higher.
Reward: A discrete meeting.
Expires: Ongoing
Moderation: Solo/collab with mod input.
Danger Rating: High Danger.

River Rats Come Back: One particularly nasty group of river pirates, formed around a tough fugitive from the Rharne Prison, have begun harassing boats on the River Zynyx. They are thought to take refuge on the edges of the Stormwastes. The man in charge is known to be a master survivalist (fieldcraft), an expert combatant with a spear, and a daring tactician. His name is Garlan Tubs. Those seeking leads ought to begin with those hunters at the Zynyx Market.

Taking this one... for real now. I figured out a way I can squeeze it into the schedule.

Will PSF when done, for obvious reasons. The Bounty amount will have to be determined by someone not me :P
