Simple little idea I had to help foster some more smaller-scale conflict. When hunting intelligent villages, there should be a chance every x kills (100? 500?) for the village to hire the ivory mark or quisalis on you. Gives marks more opportunities for contracts (which is something sorely needed, from what I hear), and makes hunting intelligent things a bit more of a consideration.
I think it'd be neat, start adding in some conflict and intrigue to an otherwise fairly rote activity.
