Twice in a row I liberated some holds for a faction that I sided with. Twice they gave me some crappy 50 Gold Piece armor as a reward. I immediately dropped it on the floor. Those jerks. If I could, I would kill them for the insult right there. I could conqurer the whole country by myself if the game would let me and they give me this cheap junk! I'm head of the mages guild, assasins, fighters and thieves. I've got armor made from the bones of dragons I've killed and they gave me a hide shield. Losers.
Really I would like these games to take my status into account when giving quests. You would not ask a US senator to go fetch you the class ring you lost. Don't ask the head of every major institution in your country to go do menial tasks. When you do ask him a favor you had better be ready with the good rewards (money, land, swag, women [or men] if you prefer). I am the single most powerful being in the land. You should be doing my bidding. GRRRR
