SWMUD Bounty Hunters' Creed
1) The Bounty Hunters' Creed Is Not Your
Bible, Just A Guideline.
You are not bound by this code, but it is an idea of what Bounty Hunting
is like in the SW World. In the end, you, the player will decide how to
live your Character's life. The primary Bounty Hunter may feel more obligated
to follow the Creed then the secondary, or 'part time' Bounty Hunter.
2) You Create Your Own Brand Of 'Justice'.
The idea of a 'Lodge' is just that, an idea. You may choose to go with
it, or you may want to take any other measures that you, the player, and
the character, feels is necessary to dispense what you think is 'justice'.
Remember that you, the Bounty Hunter, bring your own brand of justice
to a generally lawless galaxy. You play by YOUR rules in regards to inter-guild
issues. Though hunting other Bounty Hunters is a perfectly acceptable
lifestyle, it may not make you the most loved person in your guild. Then
again, do you need the love of other guild members?
3) Interfering With Other Hunts And Aiding
A Bounty Hunter makes his/her living by bringing in acquisitions. No doubt
about it. As a player, you choose how you want to do it. You will need
points to advance past the fifth level. You need cash to buy all the nifty
objects available to you. If there is another Hunter in your way, then
YOU, the player must chose how to deal with that situation. Will it be
better for you to 'dissuade' the other hunter? Or might it be better to
aid that hunter in return for their aid in acquiring a bounty that might
be 'out of your league'? Again, the choice is yours to make. The Creed
is just a general guideline and not a list of RULES that you must abide
4) Hunting And Killing.
Again, as a Bounty Hunter, you need to acquire points to advance past
a certain level. But only turning in bounties will not get you the EXP
you need to advance. But remember that there are other hunters who need
the points or cash more than you. If you kill every acquisition available
on a planet, you may be robbing of another hunter of his/her chance to
advance. This may impede you at times of need, but again, this may be
a good way to assure your own status and rub out any unwanted 'competition'.
Again, you as a player must decide.
The point of this document is to show you the choices you will be faced
with on your journey towards becoming the best Bounty Hunter on SWmud,
and to put the Bounty Hunter Creed into SWmud perspective.
It is not meant to invalidate the creed, but to merely accompany it.
I wish you good luck on your journey, may the Force be with you, and may
your cuff never fail.
