Man, diplomacy isn't my thing. I learned that it's you get more stuff with kind words and a weapon than just kind words. Hey, it works everytime.

I'm positive. These were the same raiders with my target. Recently, she hoarded lots of resources from a small settlement of kobolds that I was in, and they ran off to this particular cave. See? Same cheap leather suits that she's infamous for handing over to the grunts that she coaxes for a short period of time.
Even after managing to trace them, I couldn't find any sign of her. Damnit, she probably already ditched these guys after the raid.
I can probably salvage something from the loot she left for these goblins, though...

She's a goblin going by the name of "Maomar". Bounty is 10,000 coins. Known for raiding small villages and amassing thousands of coins for an unknown reason.

Introductions will be for later, after we're done with this area. Don't get me wrong though; I just don't want to get distracted while our target's on the loose.
If it helps you, I'm a bounty hunter myself. I've been one for a few years.

... and sometimes, I wish I could've worked myself out some more. But then again, I can be very charismatic at times... Not all the time, though. Especially not now.
Urgh, these footprints lead to a fork, and looks like Maomar's trying to keep us guessing.
The left path goes to the crossroads leading back to my hometown, where the League of Bounty Hunters is located. I doubt she would go to such a dangerous place, though she's probably expecting me to think like this.
The right path goes to a nearby river, deeper into the woods. The safer path among the two for Maomar, albeit she can manage to slip off easier.
Where could she be going? I'm not sure...

I can't do a thorough search right now due to time restraints, but there seems to be no broken twigs whatsoever. Whoever this Maomar is, she's trying not to leave even more traces of her.

We move to the left path, which brings us to the crossroads. From afar, you can already see my hometown. No sign of Maomar anywhere, though these footprints still look fresh.

We approach the Tonberry. He doesn't seem to be badly hurt, though he looks like he never had a nasty bump before.

"You okay, kid?" I start to help him out. He begins to look at me and notices something.

"It's nothing! Just someone was running off from your direction and bumped into me..."
"Do you recognize who that was? Was it a goblin? Possibly carrying lots of stuff?"

I have my lead on Maomar, but I'm not sure leaving this guy to his own fate would be worth the capture...

"I'll help you up, but I can only bring you back to Silberg. I've got someone to find: a particular someone with a ten-thousand coin bounty."
The Tonberry looks down with a worried look on his face. "Oh... I feel like such a burden to you..."
"It can't be helped. I don't really want to leave you here like that, anyway."
The Tonberry, realizing my own dilemma with the situation, lets out a comparably huge sigh. "I'll repay you for any setback this might've caused you, helpful hunter. It might not be ten thousand coins, but bring me back to Silberg and I'll try to help you in the best way I can. Information, supplies... anything!"

Horses are actually very rare around here. Only some of the elite bounty hunters ride on one, and they acquire them from far places even. I think a few foreigner merchants also use them to pull their caravans with.
We bolt off towards Silberg and enter the Inn. Here, we are greeted by the guy who owns the whole thing.
"Sanya... I don't remember Maomar being a Tonberry..."
"Zip it, Tumar. I just found him injured and had to bring him here. Can you call someone to check his ankles out?"
"Right away. That'll go from your pocket, though!"

I put the Tonberry down and he looks at me with a sad face. Looks like he can't get over the whole thing.
"I mean no offense when I say this, but I think I've held you back for too long. Whoever bumped into me was really fast. I don't think you'll be able to chase them..."
"I'd like to thank you by paying for a week's worth of expenses, though if you really wish to continue the chase, I can get someone to lend you a horse instead..."

The Tonberry has a point: we're not even sure if we were heading towards the right direction, let alone be able to catch up to our target. We can call this lead dead and get another bounty instead...
But then again, ten thousand coins...
No. 246110 ID: 40cb26

Well see if you can't find some kind of a fresh lead on him. If the trail is really cold and dead then give up on it. That guy had a head start and was probably faster than you anyway. So long as no one gets him first you can still maybe find and collect him. You need to wait for him to slip up so you can corner him or lay a trap or whatever.

Tell the tonberry you'll ask for what you need depending on what you find out now.

You're right. A bounty isn't dead until it is caught. And if I let her loose now, I might not get another chance again.

"My bounty couldn't have gone too far; she's at foot. I might be able to catch her."
"Then you'll need a horse. Bring me to my place for awhile. I'll get the people there to lend you one."
"I believe we haven't formally introduced ourselves to each other. I'll make things brief. I'm Meron, a mid-division L.B.H. merchant. And you?"

We walk to a place near the League of Bounty Hunter grounds. It's actually a bazaar exclusive for bounty hunters, where they get their equipment for discounted prices. We approach the stables, where Meron drops off and talks to unknown guys.
"The ones who own this stable are going to give you a horse you can ride. It can follow basic one-word commands, so all you have to do is keep your balance while riding him."
"Thanks, Meron."

Man, this feels great! Though it's only for one day, I get to ride this horse for this chase!
I follow the direction of the tracks from the fork and it leads me to a part of the woods. The sound of chirping is the only noise I get. The trees are abundant, making just looking from far away hard to accomplish without a light.

Just barely, I jump out of the way. I can hear the sound of the spear lashing just near my face as the figure lands in front of me.
It's another goblin, though her clothing and armor looks very unique compared to the ones in the cave. The dark green color of her skin matches the description in the bounty, and the fact about her clothing gives me a hunch.
"Maomar?" I ask bluntly.
"Who's this Maomar you're mentioning?" she says. "I'm just a passerby, can't you see?"
"I've never heard of one that shoots bolts and lunges at a stranger."

I can tell she's trying to provoke me. I don't think that's a good idea; I thought running was her best option.
Could it be that she's trying to avoid something other than me?

I quickly take note of that. She doesn't seem to be a great fighter, judging by the way she holds her spear. If I engage her in a fight, the odds would probably favor me.
"Those thugs you've talked into serving as grunts seem to be very loyal to you. I didn't get any information from them about your whereabouts."

Maomar jumps towards me while holding her spear one-handedly, but her swings are wide enough for me to block them with my spear. It's not hard to block her attacks, but she's not giving me any chance to get closer. I was hoping that she'd tire herself out instead, but I see her other hand reaching towards her back, as if trying to get something.
I jump back in response, not knowing what she could have behind her. A concealed weapon would pose a danger for me.

I thought making Maomar tire herself out is an easier way to capture her. Still, subduing her right now is faster, it seems.
I take advantage of Maomar's delay and disarm her with a swing from my spear. Her inexperience starts to show as she does not react fast enough to dodge my spear, piercing her shoulder.
Maomar gasps, dropping whatever it is on her hand as well as her spear. She eyes the spear on her shoulder with a stunned look on her face.
"... It's over, Maomar. I got you already."
She breathes heavily, unsure what to say. Looks like I broke her usual charismatic attitude.
"... Don't move much, or your condition will worsen. I'll get your wound treated, so don't make any thoughts of escaping. The bounty on your head's as good as mine."

(An hour later...)
I bring the shocked Maomar to my horse and carry her back to town. She's bound by her wrists and ankles using some makeshift rope, so she won't get away.
I spend little time wandering around and head quickly to our headquarters. One of those guys who manage the bounties see me and Maomar and approaches me. His filthy stench and unmanaged hair repulses me, but some say he knows a lot about bounty information.
"Eehk, Maomar, huh? A Level-C bounty with an unusually high price." Though he is talking about Maomar, he clearly looks at me with an unknown intent. "You don't seem to be a respected bounty hunter: this must be a huge catch for you!"
"... Yeah, I'm not licensed to take anything higher than 'Alive-Only' bounties, but hopefully this changes those guys' minds about me."
"Oh, they're going to really think a lot differently about you after this... Eehk!"

The league here has a respectable way of treating bounty hunters who have brought in a possible bounty: the hunters are allowed a considerable amount of money while they wait for the capture to be officiated. The guy in front of me gives me 200 coins for this.

Hey, why don't you go watch the officiation? Not like you have anything better to do, and it might give you some insight.

It'd better not be. I spent an awful amount of time tracking down Maomar. Besides, I could use a drink after this!
Who watches an entire officiation? Most of the time, they're just making sure I got the right person for the bounty, and that is usually off-limits even for the hunter unless they need information from the hunter himself. And even after that, they just flat out tell me if I had the right bounty or not.
Besides, I think I have a better use of my free time. I'd better get you something. I don't think having you around my chest would do any good for the both of us.

... Hey, uhh... Were you totally surprised by what I did inside the cave, earlier? I know this is out of the blue, but... I've never heard of a Scout Watcher complain about their owner's actions... And I just bought you this day from the bazaar... It's just weird to hear that from someone like you.
I figured since we'll probably have to stick together for awhile, I'd like to learn more about you. It's for the best of us, I guess.
No. 250903 ID: c99f30

Depends, what do we look like, I have a feeling we are a bit more than just a 'scout watcher'.

Also, I find it odd that "live-only' bounties are for lower level hunters. I mean generally it takes more skill to take em alive than dead.

Besides, there was that matter of all those other goblins that you killed to get to her. Seems like a weird system.
No. 250906 ID: fd6d7e

Makes sense to me. The system isn't to protect low level bounty hunters. It's to protect the organization from stupid bounty hunters, putting them under a higher standard before they can be trusted enough with its full resources. Prove you can drive without killing anyone and then we'll give you the tank.
No. 250907 ID: 24a9bd

The very first thing we saw you do was kill someone we knew nothing about. It's kinda jarring. We don't follow your opinion alone, if we did you'd just hear agreement, despite how good or bad your ideas actually are, and you would get nowhere new.

You bet I was.
Killing you only lead just because you could? Shameful!

> bounty system
I don't really know much about the bounty system myself. I think it's there just because "Dead or Alive" bounties usually comprise of very dangerous criminals who cannot be captured so easily, and that they issue them to hunters who know what they're doing. I've heard that elite hunters get exclusive benefits from the league like being able to own their own transport just for tackling those dangerous bounties.
I... I don't know...
Those goblins were Maomar's grunts, and I got frustrated when none of them even spoke up. They just jumped right off and attacked me. I had no choice.
Now that I think about it, I acted very irrational. I could have given time processing all these things, but my impatience got the best of me...
... I guess this isn't becoming an elite hunter, going all angry when things don't go your way...

(As the conversation continues, Sanya walks into the bazaar. She talks to a particular merchant and requests for a "Movement Upgrade".)

You bet yer brown ears, it ain't! Next time show a little more discipline!

I have no excuse for thinking about torture, and I take full and sole responsibility for my temper getting the best of the situation.
Beside bounty hunters, I think travelling merchants can have transport as well. And of course, I've seen some foreigners around here with their own.
... Discipline, huh? Heh, you just reminded me of my dad... Always berating me for being too quick to anger...

(You hear a voice saying "Here it is, that'll be 150 Gold". Sanya pulls out the coins and takes the item.)

Here. I think this will help you move around. You can look at the mirror to see for yourself.

Having bought everything I need, I head back to the Inn just before dark. Tumar the Innkeeper greets me as soon as I enter.

"The tonberry from earlier's all fine and well. He wanted to thank you personally but he was in a haste to return to his place."
"... Yeah?"
"We talked for a bit while he was being checked, and he left a message: he wanted to know if you're interested in escorting someone. He said he'll reward you handsomely if you're successful."
"Why doesn't he go to the league instead? I know they sometimes offer that kind of service there."
"He said it's too confidential for him to involve the league on this. He wants to know your response as soon as possible: he said he'll have to be out of town by tomorrow morning."

Tumar said I need to talk to Meron right away. I meet him by the bazaar, where I see him pack his stuff in a caravan. Seems he's really going out of town.
"I heard your offer from the Innkeeper. What's this about an escort service?"
"Ahh, Sanya! First off, I'd like to thank you for everything today. Even if it seemed like I just tripped, you've helped me get back up."
"Second, I see you want more details about my offer. Basically I want you to serve as a temporary bodyguard for a friend of mine who is going to a place far from here. He is to meet someone 'important'."
"Why not ask the league for some elite bodyguards, then? I don't see why you have to keep this confidential."
"It's a matter of complication. Let's just say my friend is not in good terms with the league. Don't worry, though: I promise you will be rewarded for your fine effort."

"Who am I protecting him against? Bandits? or someone with the law?"
"I wish it would be no one. Your destination is Migrowle Manor, which is between two warring barbaric tribes. The place is very chaotic because of the tribes, and so the safety of anyone in the Manor is usually at risk. There have been numerous reports of abduction in there."
"I am sending you there mainly for safety, but you are to do everything to keep your client safe."

We're talking to a guy who basically lent us something rare like a horse. Who knows what reward he can give us?!
"I'll take it."
"Ahh, good! I am so glad to hear that! But no need to rush on things, Sanya. Take this night as you see fit, as I will bring my friend to the Inn before I go."
"Sadly, I cannot aid you this time, as I have to bring all of my possession towards my destination. I will inform my friend to bring anything that might assist you during your tenure. The whole job will take only three days, and we shall meet here for your reward when you have returned with my friend."
"For now, please have your night to yourself. Perhaps your bounty earlier have been officiated successfully, so someone must be waiting for you at the Inn by now."

This is a tiring day for me, but things turn out for the better. Turns out I actually had Maomar, and they paid me the bounty: 10,000 coins right by my pocket. This is my major break; I've never had something this rewarding ever.
However, I have lots to think about before I retire for the night. Migrowle Manor, huh? An escort service for a friend of Meron. I don't know what business he has in such a chaotic place, but as a bounty hunter I have no obligations whatsoever to find that out.
And finally, looks like I'll have myself some real company in years. Even if that comes in the form of a peculiar creature like my Scout Watcher.
