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.
