Shadowrun Bounty Hunting Job Thresholds

From Abulafia Random Generator Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

One aspect of the MSP'plex is that bounty hunting is outsourced because of low government budgets, apathy, corporate greed, extraterritoriality, no tax base, etc. This tool generates a Bounty based on randomness. The threshold is the Extended Test target the team must reach to identify the culprits current location, where they will likely remain for 2 hours. Dramatically the bounty hunters then have 2 hours to get to the location the marks are at and capture or kill the targets.
I did not reduce skill by 1 after each test for this, and interval was 8 man hours (or the interval of a related skill; e.g. a Matrix Search for data on them might only take 4 hours, but still yield hits).

Criminals and Felons are generally related to a Syndicate
Gangers are related to a street gang in the barrens or Westside
Shadowrunners generally live in the barrens, but can live anywhere, and are generally independent.


Hostages imply the targets are trying to move somewhere or are holding them for ransom, or both
Return of goods imply that the targets stole goods or data at the crime


What sets these jobs apart, because the bounty hunter boards on the MSP Grid have thousands of jobs, is a connection the players have to the culprits through one of their contacts in the know.

Unknown to the bounty hunter's the Noise from distance is [distance] and other noise at the perp's site is [noise]. The crime took place in [loc], and the targets are [wanted] by the [authority], their last known residence was believed to be in [home], but they are likely on the lamb now[Holed]. You know something about them through a [link] that has [info] that might lead to their [fact].[suprise] 4,This is a contract job, open to one taker, based on a crime over 1 week (7 days) old that authorities have bypassed. A group of [number] [perp] have [killed] and are wanted for [pay] NY each. [Leader][wirelessmagic], [witnesses] and [evidence]. This bounty will remain up for 100 days. Unofficially, most bounty hunters give up after 14 days. Unknown to the bounty hunter's the Noise from distance is [distance] and other noise at the perp's site is [noise].

The bail money has been returned to the State, and the bondsman has lost their stake. There is now just a standard warrant out for their arrest. Servicing a warrant is worth 300 NY to the State. A group of [number] [perp] have [killed] and are wanted by the State for 300 NY each. [Leader][wirelessmagic], [witnesses] and [evidence]. This warrant is a permanent legal device, and because of its age most bounty hunters have given up on this job.
