The Bloodpost is an essential tool for each Hunter; it is there that the Hunter may execute Runners.
When a Runner is downed, the Bloodpost gains one charge. When a Runner falls off the map, the Bloopost gains 2 charges. When 3 charges have been added, the Hunter may choose to send any downed Runner to the Bloodpost.
Runners sent to the Bloodpost are unable to act and must rely on a team-member to release them. However, should a Hunter reach the post first and interact with the captive Runner, that Runner is executed and removed from the game. Each time the Hunter executes a Runner, the Runner team loses one of their 3 communal lives.
A Hunter's interaction with the Bloodpost can be interrupted via the use of certain abilities. Runners can work together to distract or incapacitate the Hunter and attempt to release their teammate and reset the amount of charges the post holds at that time!
