Lightbulb I have an idea about info brokers

How cool would it be if there were info brokers in cantinas and places like that? The brokers could be controled by comp. or by an employee of Sony Online. The info brokers could tell the whereabouts of persons with bounties on them, general info, and info about joining various missions, clans, or criminal organizations. Reply with your thoughts!

Where is D_S anyway???

In my opinion, I think players should be the ones who deal in info. Not "God" characters that know things becasue life is recorded.

Just imagine. You run a cantina and all teh local BH's come to YOU for their info. You could hire people to be your contacts across the galaxy, bringing back facts on people and rumors of whereabouts. You could then sell the info and your reputation could be known throughout the galaxy.


I can't imagine why you wouldn't welcome any change, because soon a day will come when we are one and the same. As life slips away... Lets keep believing. So step away and believe we're wasting away.

Yeah, that is a great idea- but I don't think it'd work well. Unless it was about things that wouldn't be posted on the net. Like locations of things and such. I just think someone would post information. But I believe there is some sort of service in the game like a message board in game.

Ok well in Star Wars that actually exists. its called the Bothan Spy Network. plenty of info from them. each clan does a little investigating and then provides the info the paying customers
