Description
I've always thought that bounty rewards were underwhelming - Item Rewards For Bounties makes bounty quest rewards much more interesting and unpredictable, while being level appropriate and balanced.

This mod adds a random leveled item as a reward upon quest completion, and changes bounty rewards to 250 gold for Bandits/Forsworn, 500 gold for Giants and 1000 gold for dragons.

Leveled item rewards include one of the following:

Boots
Cuirass
Gauntlets
Helmet
Shield
Arrows
Enchanted Circlets
Rare Alchemy Ingredients (up to 2)
Poisons
Potions
Enchanted Necklaces
Enchanted Rings
Enchanted Robes
Enchanted Weapons
Scrolls
Filled Soul Gems (No black soul gems)
Staffs
Bows
Spell Tomes (Novice, Apprentice, Adept - no Expert or Master tomes)
Empty Soul Gems (No black soul gems - up to 2)
1-Handed Weapons
2-Handed Weapons
Uncommon Alchemy Ingredients (up to 4)
Common Alchemy Ingredients (up to 5)

NOTE: If you have a bounty quest in your quest log prior to installing the mod, you will get the old rewards, and you won't get an item. Make sure to have this mod installed before you accept any bounty quests, and keep it activated through the whole quest.

ALSO NOTE: This mod works automatically for most people, but some people do not receive items, only the proper gold amount. If you experience this, please see the following section:

IF THIS MOD IS NOT WORKING FOR YOU: Go to this file on the Skyrim Nexus here and try installing it from there, along with a fix I've posted there. http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=11157

Try the optional BQScript Fix 1 and 2 files I have uploaded. Try 1 first, just placing the BQScript.pex into your Skyrim/Data/Scripts folder and then testing the mod again.

If this doesn't work, try Fix 2, which is replacing the default BQScript.psc file in the Skyrim/Data/Scripts/Source folder. BACK UP THE ORIGINAL FILE, and preferably BACK UP THE WHOLE FOLDER BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THIS. I don't want to be responsible for having to reinstall the game because I didn't tell you to back up the file first :).

Fix 1 is confirmed to work (thanks talcottparsons!).

The issue is that Steam automatically bundles modified existing scripts into .bsa files, such as BQScript, which this quest modifies. For some installs of Skyrim, these scripts must float freely for Skyrim to properly recognize them. This is why I direct you to the Nexus, because the Steam Workshop mod system will not allow this kind of fix (many thanks to Samutz for this info!).

Other WG Mods:

Undying Companions: Makes all companions essential, meaning they cannot die by friendly or hostile damage. Exceptions: Erandur, Cicero and Eola.

Breezehome Enchanting Table - Adds an enchanting table to Breezehome right next to the Alchemy Lab. Will only show up once Alchemy Lab decoration is purchased from Proventus in Dragonsreach. Mood lighting included.

Enhanced Alchemy XP - Slightly increases Alchemy XP gain rate (20%) to balance with other skills such as Smithing. Still balanced, more fun.

Improved Imperial Racial Abilities - Changes Voice of the Emperor ability to a +10 Speech bonus for people like me who never use Voice of the Emperor when they roll Imperial characters.

Visible Slaughterfish - Makes only slaughterfish 3x bigger so you can see them more easily.

Evil Slaughterfish - Makes slaughterfish much more dangerous: 3x damage, 2.5x speed, 3.1x attack chance and 2x health.

Skyscraper Giants - Makes giants 3x bigger.

Excellent small mod. I used to hate doing bounties only to be rewarded 100g, even if I killed a giant or a dragon. Great fix, keep it up.

I did several bounties yesterday and they were all 100 gold. Could it be a load order issues?

When I read the mod I thought it was you got items for having a bounty on your head. Lol
