While I have no particular horse in this race, I thought I'd use my incredible powers of persuasion for the purposes of Good instead of Evil. So, please, Powers That Be, make a Bounty Hunter sourcebook next. That would be swell!

 

Love -

Bounty Hunter players everywhere!

Thanks Des, you're a good egg! But I think the BH's signature abilities are game breaking.

Wait - can we complain about the sig abilities of a book that's not even announced yet?

 

Eh - this is the internet. We can complain about everything!

 

You're right! The Bounty Hunter Signature Moves are way too [adjective] and completely [verb] the whole class. Frankly, I don't see why the [noun] should get all the [proper noun] while the other classes don't! Unfair, FFG! I demand that you [buff/nerf] the [noun]'s in an errata at once!

I'd be fine with BH.  I'd prefer Smuggler but I am betting BH will include something I'd want to cross spec into. Thinking about them, I've come to think Gunslinger would be more appropriate in BH.

My current game is a band of (wanna-be and professional) bounty hunters, so a book that expands on the Bounty Hunter career will doubtless have some use to us.

While I play a BH and would love to see that book next, I am really hoping that the Technician book comes after the Colonist.   :ph34r: Our Mechanic needs some new toys/rules to play with.

I hope there aren't big gaps in releases.  I'm hoping since they are knocking out an adventure so quick for AoR and we just had one for EoE not too long ago, that they just rapid fire flip flop EoE/AoR splatbooks the rest of Q3/4.

If the bounty hunter book doesn't have the concussion rifle it can... I was going to say burn in hell, but let's be honest- the only burning it will do is in my wallet.

Another vote for the Bounty Hunter book (and the concussion rifle)

I'd rather see the Smuggler book next, or the Technician book.  We've already gotten a combat-heavy career splatbook, so I'd rather seen one of those two before seeing a Bounty Hunter book.  Then again, Scoundrel's got a mix of combat-savvy already thanks in part to Scoundrel spec, so that could very well be the last of the career splatbooks.

I'm hoping for Smuggler or Technician next. Not because I have anything against bounty hunters, but my group includes two Smugglers and two Technicians vs. one Bounty Hunter. Those two would simply give my players a little more bang for their my bucks.

My vote is for a Smuggler book next. No particular reason. :P

I good with any of the three.  Smugglers, because I play one.  BH's, because I'm sure they'll have something I want.  Technician, because I think it will hold the biggest surprises.  I'd probably pick that order but mostly I just want them yesterday.

I'd prefer BH is last after everything else at this point. Non-combat specs still need more love than combat specs, simply because combat specs benefit from usable weapons in every single book that comes out.

 

I'd like to see Technician and Smuggler next.

Gunslinger

Skip Tracer

Of those I really would like to see the Gunslinger and Sector Ranger.  As for the 3rd choice, hmm...

I think the Colonist's Marshal is going to cover the "sector ranger" idea.

 

PI is a cool idea; the theme overlaps a lot with the idea of a skip tracer. What do you mean by Bondsman? Someone who you pay a fee to and he fronts your bail?
