Back to the original topic: I actually had something very weird happen two weeks ago, once Harris got rich; I got a $200 bounty! That means that somebody who had been alive since before bounties had been made $100 had come and died in my house. I was pretty surprised to see that.

Sweet!  I love it- vintage deaths.  They are the best.  You feel old.  "Well hey there old timer, I haven't seen one of your kind around these parts in ages.. You must have been around before the Great War.."

maybe because cyc took 35k and 18 paintings the other night.. grats Cylence on that nice guess at the end.

That was my second visit, and surprised I got lucky in the end. I didn't want to check the last or the second to last for sure, your earlier choices alluded to those not being correct. So I jumped in, and bam there was the vault.

On my first visit you put the correct path on what I thought would be the correct path because it was the hardest to guess, then you did that on the second one too, but i had to check the northern path because it would give me a sense of spacing. The next visit, I had to rule out another jump path to another set of choices which is why I checked the end and middle first. Although, I calculated the number of extra trips to make after that one, and it would only take 2 more trips. 1st trip to rule out the top by drugging dog and just checking. 2nd trip to check the bottom half.

It was a neat design and if you want to hear my thoughts on improvements, let me know.

Ok, back on topic:

So, yeah. Whenever I'm sitting on my lazy ass waiting for bounties instead of robbing people, I only EVER get $100 bounties. Today was the first >$100 bounty I've had in literally 3 lives (each one lasting a few days). He came in with >$2k worth of tools, some explosives for some reason, and some other tools that would work better. He died in 4 steps. Lol. But the idea still stands; is everyone else having nothing but $100 bounties?

I usually get $100, but occasionally I see $1100 or $600. These are usually chain robbers. The bigger numbers are always cautious high budget thieves and you can usually tell because they visit with a lot of tools. If you've got a set of paintings and can kill of those ones, you'll notice higher numbers. Paintings attract a different crowd.

Re: First $600 bounty in ages

I've had bigger bounties in the house I made a few hours ago than the one that stood on top of the neighborhood for 2 days (which only got $100 bounties)

The house?

2 $600 bounties before somebody finally robbed me (bringing meat and explosives)... I'll never understand this game *sigh*

That being said, winging the solution to that house was pretty fun wink

I keep dying of a natural cause - Stupidity
The biggest thing that Castle Doctrine has taught me is that the price of your house is proportional to the stupidity of the mistake that kills you.
