Bounty Hunting is a recurring side quest in Bowerstone Industrial in Fable III. It becomes available after completing the main quest. The quest can be used to help your hero gain money and morality, but its main purpose is in fulfilling augment requirements found on certain legendary weapons.


Talk to the highlighted town guard Philip by the gate to the docks and warehouses area to start this quest. Follow the glowing trail to the escaped convict who will flee from you until you get close enough to touch him. Once he stops simply grab his hand and drag him back to the guard to receive your reward.


Find and apprehend an escaped criminal in Bowerstone Industrial.


Good work. That's another troublesome lawbreaker back where he belongs -- behind bars!


  • Between 1000 and 6000 gold, based on the difficulty level.
  • Morality +10


  • When you catch the convict, he may just stand there with his hands up. At this point you are unable to hold his hand, but he will not run away. You can try moving away from him and returning to him, which may fix this. Otherwise, this effectively breaks the quest for the rest of the game, because as a quest NPC you can not kill him either.
