    I. Introduction
    This guide is designed to help you through the non-mission world 
    of Fable, the miscellaneous things such as Titles, Haircuts and 
    tattoos that will make your game more enjoyable and your character
    more attractive to the common folk. I'll share some tips and 
    secrets that I've picked up along the way and some tips for making 
    your character as evil or good as you wish for him to be. 
    This is my first FAQ so I hope you enjoy it!
    The way the titling system works in this game is it will first 
    name your renown title, then your class title and finally your 
    chosen vendor title, such as Legendary Spellwarrior called Sabre. 
    Enjoy the Guide!

    IX: Tips
    Raising your Reknown- There are many ways to raise your reknown
    throughout Albion, but if you can't wait heres a few pointers-
    1) Take the No Damage boast: Taking this boast usually almost doubles
    your mission reward, and as long as you keep your physical shield in 
    tip-top shape you will never be hurt.  Using physical shield is
    a smart tactic anyway because this will increase your chances of 
    a huge combat multiplier.
    2) Trophies at Dinner time: If you want to get a quick 1,000 or so 
    reknown, go to a town such as the Heroes Guild or Gnothole Glade just
    as the shops close.  This will cause everyone to congregate in the 
    local tavern, and you can get an easy 19 or 20 trophy spots with 
    virtually no effort. Also when showing trophies be sure to use slow 
    time to catch any straglers.
    3) Exploiting the Spade: Using this trick, you can gain massive amounts
    of reknown by simple using a spade when at the time you are taking a 
    boast.  You will notice that every time you dig, another NPC will 
    genearate, and using this trick you can easily get a crowd of NPCs to 
    show off a trophy or two.  Be careful, the more that you dig the dirtier
    your X-box gets! If you don't want to screw up your game, keep the NPC
    count below 100.  Credit goes to the Rayven for finding this trick.  
    Undead at Cliffside Path: More than just reknown, this is 
    the key to unlimited experience.  After the prison mission, equip 
    a strong weapon and return to the Cliffside Path Armed with the 
    spell Physical Shield and several mana potions. Use physical shield 
    and begin hacking away at the infinitely spawning undead, and you 
    can gain max reknown, light points and experience in less than an hour 
    (no joke).  Not good if you have the will to be bad.  
    The Beardy Baldy Quest: Early on in the game, you'll have the 
    oppurtunity to help a bitter old man who is looking for a suitor for his
    daughter. Head to Bowerstone Quay and talk to a the man sitting on a 
    bench (be sure to be wearing the pudding basin haircut, or you can never 
    obtain the warriors stripe!) I'll leave the comedic twists to you, but 
    be sure to complete this quest because it leads to several good haircut 
    cards that are difficult to obtain otherwise, not to mention arguably the 
    best tattoo in the game, the Fire Monkey.  
    The Archer Glitch: Need even more easy Experience/Reknown?
    I know the feeling, and thats why I'll throw you this little doozy.
    Equip any Bow or Crossbow and Draw it back for 3 minutes.  This will
    cause the bow to gain a tremendous amountof strength, and when fired
    at an unsuspecting monster/bandit/rock troll it will do the full
    damage without a problem. Using this trick can get you some pretty
    insane exp and combat multipliers in Witchwood lake, where even an 
    Ebony Crossbow can take down a rock troll in a single shot (and give
    you a 61 combat multiplier instantly to boot)!Try it out on tougher 
    enemies and you may be surprised with the results.
    Stealing and your appearance: Obviously, you won't be a very good thief 
    if you're wearing bright plate armor and everyone is cheering your name. 
    Instead,Equip a complete assassin outfit and you'd be amazed who will 
    suddenly cease to notice you.  Oakvale is the most effective place to 
    steal because they carry pricy items and with the assassin outfit you can 
    steal from the salesman while hes still in his shop. If this still isn't 
    working for you, you can also get the shopowner to follow you to the pub 
    for a few beers. Get him to an area far away from the shop, have him drink
     his troubles away and you can steal everything from his store in broad 
    daylight. Breaking and entering at night may make you feel badass, but 
    its highly overrated...
    The Arena - Land of Exp: Before you even take the arena, get your phys. 
    shield up to at least 3. Take the no damage and any other boasts you wish 
    to, and enter the arena with your phys. shield already in place. Battle 
    through the rounds, and your combat multiplier will be around 50 by the 
    time you reach the final battle. Now its your choice,you can walk away with 
    a world of reknown, money and experience, or you could hero save and do it 
    again for even more.  Using this trick will effectively enable you to gain 
    almost all the experience or money you will need for the entire game.
    The Spade Portal: You can dig through walls and other blocked areas 
    such as fences with this handy trick. Map a spade to a hotkey, and keep 
    digging with your back to the barrier. You will emerge on the other side,
    often in a "blue hell" type situation. Try it out and see where you can go,
    someone has actually made it all the way to the top of hook coast.
