Bounty Hunter Book next, please!

Recommended Posts

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 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.

Gunslinger

Skip Tracer

Sector Ranger

Trapper

P.I.

Bondsman

 

Figured I'd kick off the obligatory specialization speculation............

 

 

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

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.

 Agreed.

I have to figure that Bounty Hunter is going to be the most sought after book because Boba Fett. It might be a deliberate choice to hold the BH book in the wings to keep anticipation high on the other careers.

I think we might see Smuggler, Technician, then Bounty Hunter.

What do you mean by Bondsman? Someone who you pay a fee to and he fronts your bail?

 

You're mostly right. A Bondsman does front bail, but if the person doesn't show up for the court date the Bondsman gets to act like a Bounty Hunter and track them down. In some places Bounty Hunting is illegal but it's legal for a Bondsman to hunt down the person they loaned money to.

 

An interesting concept, but I don't know if it jives 100% with Star Wars where Bounty Hunting is legal. They'd have to get more into the Imperial legal system and if people can be let out on bail to justify it. Perhaps if they wanted a Bounty Hunter who can negoiate with clients and the court on what percentage of Bail they'll pay to get the guy out.

 

Wiki link and info from the link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bail_bondsman

If the defendant fails to appear in court, the bond agent is allowed by law and/or contractual arrangement to bring the defendant to the jurisdiction of the court in order to recover the money paid out under the bond, usually through the use of a bounty hunter. Some states, such as North Carolina, have outlawed the use or licensing of "bounty hunters" so each bail bondsman must re-apprehend their own fugitives.

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?

He'd act as the more connected go between for the BH and the legal system.  Put together a team of hunters when someone skips.  Combination of social skills, for making contacts and maybe leadership skills.

 

Sector Ranger is probably best handled by Marshal but there could be some room depending on how Marshal is done.  PI's would be about Stealth and surveillance where a Skip Tracer is just a name for a repo man essentially, a BH for ships and gear.

I'm hoping for:

Repo - a specialty for recovering all the ships and items rather than people, droids included in items.

Slaver - slavery is alive and well in star wars, and someone has to get all the twi'lek dancers, wookie workers, and beasts for hutt fungeons. Focusing on bringing in living creatures and counterpoint to the assassin. Also trandoshans are known for slavers and gives a good fit for adding Zygerians.

Gunslinger sometimes you encounter a bounty, and its important to fire first or shoot the weapon out of their hands.
