A bounty office is a location in Arrowheart that catalogs current bounties and keeps records of any who are currently pursuing them. In general, the office will be a medium sized two story building, though only the bottom floor is open to the public. On the first floor, a long reception counter sits against one wall. The counter is manned by several secretaries who interact with the bounty hunters who visit the office. On the wall opposite the counter are bounty listings posted in an organized fashion. The second contains offices.
In addition to providing information on bounties, the bounty office also keeps track of which bounty hunters are currently pursuing a specific bounty. For bounties that yield less than 1000 GP, the office only legally allows one person or team to pursue a specific bounty. Should someone else attempt to claim the bounty, there would be criminal charges. If one week has passed and the bounty has not been claimed and the original team has not made any further contact, then the slot reopens.
For bounties that yield 1000 GP and over however, the office does not restrict who may pursue or claim a bounty. The reasoning given is that criminals that are worth over 1000 GP present more of a threat to the populace than bounty hunters squabbling over who gets to claim the bounty and it is in the best interest of the people that they are taken out ASAP.
