One of the most expensive warriors for hire is the bounty hunter. These skilled fighters are trained to hunt down their prey and bring them back. They usually succeed on their missions and local citizens know to stay out of the way. Most people in the city have never even heard of a bounty hunter losing a fight before.

Warrior for Hire. They are focused on making as much gold as they can. Evil bounty hunters can be paid to do almost anything.

Wondrous Weapon. A bounty hunter’s magical quarterstaff is always at their side. Not only is it a melee weapon, it also has several magical qualities. These features usually surprise their opponents.

Heavy Metal. Bounty hunters wear a magical suit of armor called hunter plate. The armor covers every inch of the bounty hunter except their eyes. Hunter plate is plate armor infused with darkvision and magical resistance.
