If you have the tracking skill, and reside in the Felucca facet, you can go to a Bounty Hunter quest giver. The Bounty Hunter gives you the name of another player character who is currently in Fel and wants to participate in Bounty Hunting. If gives you the last known whereabouts, and a communication crystal. You set off to find your mark. As you get closer, the communication crystal will start to give hints like "Mark last seen accessing his bank account in Skara Brae!" or similar messages.

Can turn into kind of a wild goose chase, but the IDEA is there. Something to bring a little more excitement to PVP and Felucca. The reward can be claimed by returning with a severed limb of the victim! There could be a time interval for bounties!

Thought the bounty hunting system has been disabled due to abuse by money makers?

What would you like to see as reward there if not gold?

Bragging rights.

Say... a certificate "Aneirin brought in the bounty for Hawkeye Pike on July 4, 2011." Outside of the system, it would be near worthless, but the players involved can show stacks of bounties to tell the other players "U Suck!"

Contrariwise, the hunted can collect certificates from the hunters, "Hawkeye Pike avoided being collected by Aneirin on July 4, 2011."

Actually there doesn't even need to be any reward. Like Farsight mentioned, just bragging rights. It could simply become just another ingame mechanic to add replayability.

The plus side would be that since the mark is a bounty declared by, let's say, the Britannian Armed Forces :D that you don't get a murder count/flagged. It's legal PK red, gray, or blue.

EH, better idea... bring back the bounty on peoples heads... and then half the loot in tram.

blues will come to fel to kill mobs, reds will kill blues, blues will pay to have said reds killed by another blue WIN WIN WIN!
