    - Alright....I always start out my walkthroughs with my personal opinions
      about the game I'm writing about. I have to say that this game was
      overhyped some. I mean I was disappointed in the fact that it wasn't a
      vastly huge world to explore like originally said, and that the
      storyline for this game was pretty short and simple. But with all it's
      small faults I still love this game. You do get a great amount of
      freedom in this game to do what you want when you want. You can
      complete this game in like a day or two if you just follow the
      storyline, but if you don't, then you'll be in for a long haul of extra
      stuff to do. One main pet peeve of mine is this game is it's high
      glitchy level. It reminds me of a few Star Wars games that have come
      out. The glitches aren't anything that can't be dealt with since they
      mainly pertain to either the stage not loading all the way (Such as in
      Oakvale....sometimes you'll see nothing but a mixture of a green and
      brown 3D plane that you can walkthrough depending on where it occurs in
      the town) or when the game goes into freezy mode. Freezy mode happens
      when there's too many people and enemies around you that are all trying
      to do something at once. The game will move slowly or keep doing a
      small repeat motion til it works it's way out and you're able to go on
      with things. Dispite all this, I still love the game. It does have
      replay value which is always a plus, and if I ever feel like traveling
      around a medievel world without that whole point and click RPG element
      and where I can dictate myself to be good or evil, I'll be turning to
      this game. So lets move on to why you're looking at my guide.....all
      the things to do and how to beat the game.
    
    - Remember people.....I made this guide on my own time and my own free
      will. That means I deserve the credit for doing so. So if you'd like to
      post this guide on your site, just be nice and send in an e-mail to me
      asking my permission. 10 out 10 times I'll say yes to you if you send
      an e-mail to me, so lets avoid headache and heartache with this ok.
    
    - Also to everybody that reads this guide I write for GameFAQs and
      GameFAQs only. If there are any updates that are done to this guide,
      then they will be posted on GameFAQs. I've never heard of any other
      site watching GameFAQs for when I update it to update it on their sites
      and I won't go out of my way to find all the sites that put this on
      them to update it there as well. So if you want to find up-to-date info
      or see something that I left out the first time around, then head to
      GameFAQs already!

    1) The Basics
    
    - Alright...it's Fable Boot Camp for you right now. This is where you can
      learn all that you'll need to know to start off with in Fable. When
      you're a boy in training at the Guild, you'll get the hands on training
      that's much more needed than reading this section for the most part,
      but this section will also go into detail about a few other areas that
      you learn on your own.....and I really mean that. The makers of the
      game figure you're smart enough to a figure out a few things by
      yourself! So lets just get right down to it.
    
    - Controls -
    
    - Default -
    
    A Button - Action Button
    B Button - Hold down to Run or when in Melee Combat, press when
               highlighted in fire with an X in it to use a Flourish Attack
    X Button - Melee Attack
    Y Button - Block
    L Trigger - Lock-On Target
    R Trigger - Open Up Magic Controls
    White Button - Arm/Sheathe Melee Weapon
    Black Button - Arm/Sheathe Ranged Weapon
    Left Thumbstick - Movement
    Click Left Thumbstick - Go into Zoom Mode when Ranged Weapon is equipped
    D-Pad - Items & Expressions (Depends on the situation you're in what will
                                 show up)
    Right Thumbstick - Camera Controls
    Back Button - Inventory Menu
    Start Button - Pause Game
    
    - Magic -
    
    R Trigger - Hold for Magic
    Y Button - Cycle Spells (When you've bought more than 3 spells to use)
    X Button - Cast Spell
    Y Button - Cast Spell
    B Button - Cast Spell
    
    
    - Using the D-Pad -
    
    - Alright, if you're going to survive in this game, you have to know how
      to use your Quick Commands. This is done with the D-Pad. The D-Pad
      menu is in the left hand corner of your screen. It should look like
      this:
    
                                    ( )
                                 ( ) + ( )
                                    ( )
    
      With what's available to you given in the four slots depending on the
      situation you're in. For example, when you're running around in
      Bowerstone South, you will run into people like crazy. When you get
      close to one, two expressions will show up on the left and right sides
      of the D-Pad Quick Commands. One being a bad expression and the other
      a good one (Depends on what expressions you've learned what will show
      up, and it is always random) I'll try to do my best here to get in
      every situation that you can use this in. For the most part, you will
      be using the left and right commands. They make your on the fly
      expressions appear whenever you get close enough to a person. Also they
      put up your Health replenishing items on the left and your Magic
      replenshing items on the right when you're getting low on them in your
      meters. The game also dictates what item is best for replenishing your
      health depending on how much is gone in the left side of the D-Pad
      Commands.
    
      Now the Down Command is one of two things at any time, either
      your Teleportation whenever you're just standing around, or you'll see
      a small hook or shovel head which means you can fish when you're close
      to water, or dig when you're over an area that's meant for digging.
      Usually when it comes to digging, watch the Down Command when you're
      standing in areas that require digging and you'll more than likely find
      an item there. This is great since you can practically dig everywhere
      and you want to know if an item is around or not. Well there you have
      it....watching the bottom Command for a shovel head to appear will tell
      you. Also if a person trusts you enough, the Follow command will appear
      here as well. If you don't see it when you're close to a person, no
      matter how many times you ask them to Follow you manually, they won't.
      Not even if they have fallen in love with you.
    
      The Up Command takes you to your Quick Menu. You can access Items and
      Expressions while still walking around the world by using this command.
      It is signaled by an Up Arrow in the Up D-Pad slot. This is the only
      command that never turns to anything else, no matter what the situation
      is.
    
      Holding down the R Trigger brings up the commands that you've 
      permanently assigned. To assign commands, go into your menu and then
      goto you Expressions menu. When you go to use a certain Expression, you
      will see four other options under the Use command. This is where you
      pick which direction you want that Expression to be at. When you've
      assigned an Expression, A small D-Pad marker will appear by it's name
      showing that it's assigned to that direction that you picked. This also
      works with your items, but I don't recomend that you put items in this
      since they come up for automatically in the normal slots when you need
      them. Plus you'll want certain Expressions wherever you go, and not
      worry about them being a random thing.
    
    
    
    - Combat -
    
    - Now that you know how to use the D-Pad correctly, it's time to get into
      combat. You fight and fight and fight, and then guess what? You fight
      even more in this game, so it's a good idea to have a few skills in
      hand for any given situation.
    
      *Melee Combat*
    
      Melee Combat is always open to you. Even though you can sell your
      swords, axes, maces, whatever you have on you, you can't sell a stick
      that you carry around. You can use the stick or your bare hands if you
      want to, but that just makes you look silly and you won't be able to
      kill off opponents really at all. You can do it, just saying that it'll
      take forever to do so. So once you get a real man's weapon, keep it til
      you get a real manlier man's weapon.
    
      Now fighting Melee style is a very effective means of fighting, but not
      the easiest. You're in close with your enemies and they tend to gang up
      on you, making things hard on you to keep your life and Combat
      Multiplier (read alittle ways down to learn about this) up. So you have
      to learn how to Block and Roll Dodge. To Block, simply hold the Y
      Button down. This will block against enemy melee attacks from the front
      side of you only. Your back is still vulnerable. If another enemy is
      trying to sneak up behind you, hold the Y Button and tap a direction
      and you'll roll away in that direction. Learning to Roll Dodge is a key
      element to staying alive in this game, so learn it well.
    
      In Melee Combat you are also given unblockable attacks. This is shown
      in the B Button side of the right icons part of the screen. When you've
      worked up an unblockable attack, it will appear as an X surrounded by
      fire in the B Button spot of the right icons. You can use this attack
      anywhere in your combo to get a different looking unblockable attack.
      Use these attacks as much as possible since they are extremely powerful
      and....well....unblockable.
    
      *Ranged Combat*
    
      Ranged Combat is a very effective means of killing off enemies, and the
      easiest way to get decapitations too. I find that with Range Combat,
      you can get your Combat Multiplier higher and higher in no time. The
      only thing is charging up shots to fire at enemies. If you just press
      the button to fire at an enemy, the arrow will just fall to ground with
      out going really anywhere, or it will fail to even scratch your enemy.
      So make sure that you hold down the X Button til you feel your
      controller vibrating strongly. If you have a strong enough Bow, you can
      take out opponents in one shot.
    
      You can zoom in with your Bow by clicking the Left Thumbstick. This
      is the way to decapitating your enemies (your human enemies mind you!
      Any other enemy won't be decapitated unless they're human) You can
      zoom in twice before it puts you back into normal mode. Use this to get
      the jump on your enemies and to get a cool decap while you're at it.
    
      If you want to do like I do with a Bow and use it for close quarters
      combat. Then you'll have to move around alot. You can't stay stationary
      when you're enemies are close to you. If you hold to the left or the
      right, you can do little hops and keep moving while you target your
      enemies. For the most part, your enemies will stay still and sorta wait
      for you to unsheathe your Melee Weapon, but they won't stay that way
      for long, so take out whoever's close to you quickly.
    
      *Will Combat*
    
      Will Combat is the final means of fighting in this game. Using magic
      spells that you learn through the level up at the guild will depend on
      whether you should or shouldn't try using Will for combat. You start
      out with Lightning which is an offensive spell. It is weak in the
      beginning, but so are most of your enemies. If you don't level this up
      though, or gain any other type of offensive spells, then using Will
      won't accomplish much of anything for you. If you are going to be a
      Magical Hero in this game though, then you will be able to go far with
      Will Combat. I'm not a magic user in games like these really, but I
      will say that I did max out the Fireball attack. Using this move
      against opponents is reliable and works much like Ranged Combat style.
      But like I said already, Will Combat just isn't for everyone, and it
      all depends on what spells you have that will determine if you should
      rely on Will to fight.
    
      *Miscellaneous*
    
      Getting a decaptitation is just for bragging rights, but it is pretty
      damn cool. You also get to see how many people you've decapitated in
      your game by checking out your Personality in the Main Menu. To
      decapitate in Melee, you must first get opponent dizzy, which isn't
      easy. When they are dizzy though, use a strong attack like a Flourish
      attack, to decapitate them. To decapitate in Ranged, go into your Zoom
      modes and aim for the head when you've held onto the X Button for full
      power. Your controller will shake violently letting you know it's at
      full power.
    
      Now here's where you get the experience in fighting, the Combat
      Multiplier. This is what gets your to higher levels very quickly. When
      you are fighting and you've landed a hit on your enemy, you will see
      a number appear under your life and mana bars. Keep getting more and
      more hits on your opponent to increase the number, there by multiplying
      your experience by the number shown. You have to be quick though,
      because if you notice there's a small timer around the number. If you
      don't act fast, the numbers will drop. Also if an enemy lands a hit on
      you, that's 5 numbers off of your multiplier, so Block and Dodge while
      you fight.
    
    
    
    - Crimes -
    
    - You didn't think that in this game you could get away with terrorizing
      the innocent did you? Sorry to say that in this game you will have to
      pay for your crimes should you commit any. If you're going down the
      path of evil for any reason (like me! A Professional Fable Thief) then
      this will concern you. No one's perfect and you will be caught in the
      act eventually for something.
    
      Brandishing a Weapon: 40 Gold
      This is a simple enough crime that really isn't a crime. If a guard
      sees you with an unsheathed weapon in your hands, he will chase after
      you. Simple enough, if you are caught holding a weapon, just put it
      away. The guard will see that you want no trouble and that it was just
      a small misconception and he'll walk away without fining you money. But
      if you push it, he'll stop you and make you pay. So just play it cool
      and keep your weapon sheathed while in towns.
    
      Vandalism: 250 Gold
      Now here's where you need some stealth and luck to get away with crimes
      like this. Break objects in town will result in a vandalism fee, no
      matter what you break. Some objects like barrels and boxes, the
      townspeople won't care if you break them in front of their eyes (some
      do though just to be dirty little snitches and get you in trouble) so
      all you have to do mainly is watch for guards. You can find some useful
      items in barrels and boxes and it's worth it even if you are a good
      samaritan to break them and get freebie items. Now the people will
      start caring if you start breaking down their doors or smashing their
      windows. For the most part, breaking down a door is what will get you,
      but if someone in town was pissing you off, smashing their windows as
      revenge will also do the trick to getting you fined. The key to getting
      away with this is to smash down the door at night and then run away
      before anyone can peg you to the crime. Smashing windows is best done
      during the daytime when no one's home and no one's looking at you. You
      may cause the people that's having the property damage done to to not
      trust you much anymore by doing this. It'll just be temporary though.
    
      Assault: 500 Gold
      In the beginning of the game, you learn how to target non-hostile
      characters, in short....you learn how to beat the crap outta people.
      Now the thing is with Assault, you want to do this alot in the game. If
      you're already evil, then go nuts on the humble people of the towns. If
      you're trying to be a good little boy, then this is where you may crack
      and join the darkside. The reason I say this is because sometimes you
      meet the occasional asshole villager that just wants to tell you how
      pathetic you are. These villagers are ballsy because there are guards
      all around, and when you hit them, they can run to the guards and tell
      them what you did. There really aren't any ways of getting away with
      this, and the really the only reason to do this is to salvage your
      pride in the game. Beating up the innocent is a quick and sure fire way
      of getting the people of the town to not trust in you. Meaning if you
      need people to follow you somewhere, they'll give you the cold
      shoulder. So be very sparing in your Assaults on people. Sometimes the
      person you hit won't tell anybody and just stay afraid of you. You
      may be able to get away with it if you knock the person out with a
      Flourish attack and then hightail it out of town, but that's just a
      theory I have. I never tried it myself.
    
      Burglary: 750 Gold
      It's sort of confusing as to how this is different from Stealing at
      first, but that's why I'm here to explain things for you. When you
      burgal from someone, it's by going into their house (makes you wonder
      why they trust you in their home in the first place) and then going
      up to a highlighted item, such as a dresser or bookcase, and then
      pressing the Action Button. This is a great way of getting a ton of
      useful items for free, such as clothes, tattoo cards, and healing
      items. Not to mention that you can find free money as well. It will
      cost you some evil points to do this if you're going down the path of
      rightousness, but some items can only be obtained this way, not to
      mention making your game a whole lot easier. So no matter who you are,
      it'd pay to dabble in this area of expertise. This is an easy enough
      crime to get away with. Enter a person's house whenever you want to
      (best time is during the day) and then press the Action Button whenever
      you're facing an object that can be searched when no one is looking at
      you. You can tell if you're being watched by looking at the Awareness
      Eye at the top of the screen. No one will be the wiser when you snatch
      their belongings. One thing to watch out for is guards. Those noisy
      bastards like to walk in whenever you're in someone's house. If they
      see you in there and you're doing nothing wrong, then they'll leave.
      The trick is to steal some items, and then wait for the guard to enter.
      When he leaves, ransack whatever you haven't searched.
    
      Trespassing: 250
      This is a crime that normally goes unpunished in video games, and quite
      often in this game as well. Don't think it goes unpunished all the time
      though. For the most part, the only players that will see this crime
      called on them are the Evil Players. The reason I say this is because
      that when you steal at night, people will call you on trespassing
      charges. Well....you won't have to steal, what I mean is, when you go
      TO steal from people's houses at night they'll call that on you. You
      can get away with this if you have the Lock Picking skill. That way,
      you enter the house quietly. But once again you are faced with this
      problem if you are too evil. People judge you on your alignment you
      know....well....your wife looks the other way. In any case, if you're
      evil to a point, people will tell you to get out of their shops or
      homes, before they call guards on you for trespassing. Sucks how they
      can do that huh?
    
      Stealing: 750 Gold
      Now here's a more obvious and harder crime to pull. First off to Steal,
      you must earn the ability to Steal by leveling up your Guile stat. When
      you enter into shops, you notice all those nice items laying around for
      show in them right? Trying to make you buy their stuff by having
      displays. Well now's your chance to loot those displays. With this
      crime, there's no in between's with it. You either succeed or fail in
      doing it. Failure means a fine and distrust of the person you're trying
      to rip off. Succeed and you get a free item and you get away with it.
      So the best time to loot is at night of course. No one's around and if
      you time things right, the guards won't come around til you've lifted
      a few items.
    
      Lock Picking: 200 Gold
      Same as Stealing, but with a much smaller fine. You have to work your
      Guile stat up to gain the ability to Lock Pick. Make sure no one's
      watching you when you lock pick, and you'll get away with it. This is
      a much simplier method of getting into places in order to commit more
      serious crimes.
    
      Murder: 2000 Gold
      The ultimate crime to commit in this game that unlike in Half Life
      where you can kill off your AI friends and no one cares, things are
      much much different here. You will not only pay for your crimes, but
      you will be booted out of the town for it too. Ultimately there is no
      way to get away with murder. I mean yeah you can do it when no one is
      looking and get away with not being fined for it, but somehow the ghost
      of that person tells everyone in town what you did, causing everyone
      not to trust you at all. In fact, you put the fear of god in all people
      by committing murder. At least with the other crimes you commit, the
      people believe in forgive and forget over time, but murder....they
      won't forget it.
    
    - Now that you know the crimes and their fines that can be committed in
      the world of Fable, here's a few tips to staying out of reach from the
      long arm of the law.
    
      The best tip by far is to not commit the crimes at all! Staying a
      goodie goodie in the game will keep your wallet full and your ass out
      of prison....if they had a place to throw you in that is.
    
      The best time to commit most crimes is at night. People are either in
      the Pub getting drunk, or at home with the little ones sleeping. Either
      way, the only people walking around at night should be guards and your
      wife should you have one. Keeping an eye out for the guards will keep
      you safe from forking over any cash while committing crimes.
    
      You can buy out the guards if you want to play things safe, but they
      don't come cheap you know. You have to pay each guard that you see
      1,000 Gold in order to look the other way to your little crime spree.
      They will stand in the place you pay them and start whistling a happy
      tune. If they don't see it they don't write it up. Of course they don't
      stay this way forever, so get what you want done and do it quickly.
      Also, you don't buy out all guards in the town for 1,000 Gold, just the
      one you talked to. You still have to keep an eye out for any other
      guard that may stray away from his posted area.
    
      Believe it or not, wearing certain clothes will also help to conceal
      you while you commit your crimes. The best to wear is the Assassin Suit
      since it is dark and made for stealth. The guards will take a little
      longer to bust your ass while you wear these clothes, or you can
      breathe easier while sneaking around in people's homes to commit a few
      murders or burglaries.
    
      Holding down the Left Thumbstick will send yourself into a quiet tip
      toe walk. Use this whenever you Lock Pick into a house at night, so
      that you are polite enough to not wake your victims while you loot all
      their belongings....or getting your sword ready to slice and dice them
      in their own bed.
    
      If you're gonna commit crimes, do it with no one looking! No one likes
      a snitch, and everyone in this game is a snitch when it comes to crime.
    
      If you are seen by someone and they tell the guards, always keep a
      good amount of money to pay off the misdeed. You really don't want to
      fight the guards in a town. They can be killed off yeah, but there's
      an infinite amount of them that come after you. If you're trying to be
      a good guy that just strayed off the path of rightousness for a moment,
      you will gain tremendous evil points for murdering guards, not to
      mention increasing your fine!
    
      If you are seen by someone, you do have one option to keep them quiet.
      Kill the bastard! They can't report anything if they're dead. This in
      itself is very evil to do, and if you do it in front of more witnesses,
      you're gonna have one hell of a time trying to keep things underwrap.
      But always remember that this is an option that is open to you,
      especially all you evil people out there.
    
      Another tip for getting a free ride off your crime if it is reported,
      is to run away. If you can make it to the exit of the town, or just be
      lazy and use your teleportation to get away. Either way, as long as
      you're not in the town you will be fine. Whenever you goto the Menu
      to choose where you want to teleport to, you will see a thing in the
      stats part of the town where you commited your crime spree that says,
      Time Until Fines are Forgiven. Whatever time is left in that is
      how long you have to wait til you can roam the streets of the that town
      again freely.
    
    
    
    - Making and Saving Money -
    
    - Lets face it, money always makes the world go round in both real life
      and in video game worlds, and the realm of Fable is no exception. You
      need money for weapons, clothes, items, fines, gambling, lots of stuff
      in this game. So here's a section I just thought of and knew all of you
      would need it. I mean I've come with plenty of times that I needed
      that right amount of money to get that one item, so here's where you
      can learn to save money where needed and to make money as well in a few
      easy to learn tips.
    
    
      The first tip is to wait before you actually consider buying that
      weapon or clothing that you think you need. Why I say this is because
      during your quest, you can more than likely find what you wanted to buy
      for free in treasure chests or by stealing. Granted you won't find
      everything that you want immedeately, but you will find it. This is a
      matter of if you want to pay for what you want now or if you're able to
      wait for later.
    
      If you're going down the path of evil, then stealing is by far the only
      way to go in this game. Trust me, I already played and beat the game
      and I went down the path of the darkside because I knew I wanted to be
      thief over everything else. By stealing from shops and homes I found
      plenty of free clothes and items that I know the original owners won't
      need anytime soon. I ended up saving tons of money by doing this.
    
      Even though it's a naughty thing to do, who cares! Smash open all
      barrels and boxes and anything else that looks breakable that may hold
      an item. You can find many many many items and sometimes free cash by
      breaking things open. Do this no matter what path you're going down,
      good or evil. You want free items that can save you in the pinch of
      battle. You'll mainly find healing or mana replenishing items for the
      most part, but you will come across gifts to give people, tattoo and
      hairstyle cards, and even some money to put in your pocket. So let your
      violent side show by breaking a few barrels....just think of taking
      your revenge on Donkey Kong from the old days.
    
      As stated above, you will find alot of items by stealing and breaking
      things, but there is also one other way of doing so. That is by
      fighting and defeating enemies or murdering the occasional innocent
      bystander. This is one RPG game that you won't get extra rewards from
      killing everything that moves alongside your experience. But you do
      get the extra perks of a kill every now and then, so if you want to
      spend some time gathering exp. for yourself, then this is a viable way
      to gathering money and items.
    
      One great way of getting money in any kind of RPG game, is selling
      stuff, especially the free stuff you pick up and don't need. During
      this game, you will find stronger weapons and better clothes to use
      as you progress through the game. So why hang on to what you don't need
      huh? Sell what you don't need or want to help raise your fianances.
    
      Now there is a way of selling to vendors and making a small profit.
      When you're talking with someone that sells items, weapons, anything
      really, you can choose to sell items you currently own. When the Sell
      Menu comes up you can see an option called Wanted. This is what that
      particular vendor wants to have at that moment in time. If you have
      the item or items that he wants and are willing to part with them, you
      can make a profit from it than you normally would selling those
      particular items to anyone else. I'm not a 100% sure on this or not,
      but also raising your Guile should help you to sell items even higher.
    
      Go out of your way to do side quests and figuring out where Silver Keys
      are to open the Silver Chests, and opening the Demon Doors. They all
      contain items that you can use and basically not worry about having to
      buy weapons or clothes. I mean, if you have Legendary Weapons or 
      Top Class Clothes, then why bother downgrading to mediocre weapons and
      clothes?
    
      Level up the Guile stat! Yes it basically is for people that want to
      go down the path of evil since it helps out stealth for stealing and
      gives you the abilities of Steal and Lock Pick, but it also helps you
      to be able to barter with merchants to get low prices on items. This
      also helps you to sell higher for what you would buy the item. So if
      you're selling freebie items for higher than you would buy them, it
      doesn't take much common sense to tell that you're a true businessman.
      Plus the fact that you get items for cheaper is of great importance as
      well.
    
      As you know, you can buy houses in towns in order to get a wife. But
      while you're single, you can rent out the house to invisible ghost
      people. Seriously though, this is a waste of time in my book, but it
      is a way to get in some chump change. Hey....3 gold in your pocket is
      better than none at all. You collect rent, after a full Fable day's
      period of time, by entering back into the town. It will automatically
      give you the rent from your home as you enter town.
    
      Now.....this option is open for those that are being evil. If you're
      playing a good guy for this game, then skip this tip as an option for
      you to use. This works like the tip above, except you can own an entire
      town. To do this, you have to kill the people that live in those homes.
      The best time to do this is to enter people's houses at night, while
      they're in bed. Break in and murder all the occupants of the home. Then
      a sign will show up outside of their home much like your original home.
      Buy the house and rent it out. Do this with every house in the town and
      now you've monopolized a section of Albion. You can also buy the Shops
      in town since you killed off the shopkeepers while you were at it.
      You get even bigger discounts if you own the shop from the shopkeeper.
      If you find that you don't like the amount of rent you're pulling in,
      you can sell off everything you own for the same amount that you bought
      it. That means that you never lose any money by dabbling in the real
      estate business.
    
      One of the more obvious ways to getting in huge chunks of money is by
      taking on a Quest. You'll get a nice amount of money for completing the
      basic quest, but you can get more money if you take on boasts. Boasting
      is a way to rake in the money off of your quests, and to get some heavy
      renown for pulling it off. To boast, when you're choosing your Quest,
      you have the option of taking the quest and boast. Choose this and
      you'll be teleported outside the Guild onto a platform surrounded by
      people that are cheering you on and waiting for your boast or boasts.
      You can take on more than one boast to pull in more money. Each Quest
      contains the same boasts that you can choose, such as No Protection.
      Sometimes Quests come with Good and Evil boasts. This can help you to
      boost your meter depending on which direction you're going, plus since
      these boasts don't appear very often, they usually have more money to
      be earned than the boasts that always appear, so if you have the
      confindence to pull these off, you can pull in some major money. The
      only other boasts that appear are the Quest specific boasts. That means
      that these boasts will only appear for that Quest only. Sometimes these
      boasts are the biggest money makers that you can find, but every now
      and then you'll find a good or evil boast to be more rewarding. Either
      way, taking on boasts will get you major cash in your pocket that you
      will need to get those all important weapons.......or....to keep the
      little woman at home happy.
    
      *Gambling*
    
      Gambling is apart of this world as well, and if you're good at the
      game you're playing, you can rake in the money. The easiest game in my
      opinion to play is the Memory Card Game located in Bowerstone South at
      the Pub. Here's the games you can find all over Albion and their
      descriptions:
    
    
      Bowerstone South Tavern - Memory Card Game
    
      The easiest game to play in my opinion since it doesn't require much
      skill at it. You have four rows of four cards in each, making 16 cards
      in total. You have to make 8 pairs in under the given time limit. This
      is easy if you do things right. First you must know that you don't
      match by suit, just by the number or royal character that's shown. For
      example if you find the King of Spades, and then come across the King
      of Hearts, then there's your match. They're both Kings. This works with
      all given numbers. I've never found two of the same kind, such as two
      Ace of Clubs in one round. If you wager the maximum amount in this game
      which is 1000 Gold, you can gather up a very impressive amount in no
      time once you get a groove going. The way to win at this game quickly
      is to do this:
    
                                   [][][][]
                                   [][][][]
                                   [][][][]
                                   [][][][]
    
      Here are your cards all face down. When you start, the timer won't
      start on you until you flip over your first card. Get the cursor over
      a corner card and flip it. Then move to the card directly to the left
      or right, which ever corner you chose will dictate that, and flip it.
      More than likely you'll miss getting a pair and they'll flip over.
    
                                   [][] * *
                                   [][][][]
                                   [][][][]
                                   [][][][]
    
      This shows an example of what to do to start with. If you get a pair by
      flipping these two or don't, just remember what you flipped here and
      then move on to the next two, still going horizontal.
    
                                   * * [][]
                                   [][][][]
                                   [][][][]
                                   [][][][]
    
      Now the final card you flipped should of been in the corner, so just
      move downward and flip the next card, moving to the left or right
      again.
    
                                   [][][][]
                                   * * [][]
                                   [][][][]
                                   [][][][]
    
      By doing this same motion of going left to right, then down and going
      horizontal in the next row, you'll sweep the cards and you should start
      seeing a pair or two by the first two rows. Uncover pairs when you find
      them and then resume where you left off, til you can just jump around
      uncovering remaining pairs. If you are quick at this, you can get this
      done in under 20 seconds and keep on pulling in money to use. Again, I
      got most of my money in the game by playing this game. Also since the
      Pubs are open 24/7 you can come here whenever you want to gain money.
    
    
      Oakvale Tavern - Coin Golf
    
      Alright, you have 13 strokes to use on 4 holes. This game is simple,
      but frustrating. You have to use the Left Thumbstick and the A Button.
      The A button is optional for use, but it makes things easier. You
      can't really make a true cash flow from this game. It's not that it's
      impossible to do, it's just that it's real easy to lose at this game.
      You can lose this game by taking one too many shots, or by hitting the
      coin too hard and knocking it off the table. The only reason you should
      play this game is for the Whisper Doll prize. This comes in handy for
      a quest later in the game. My recommendation is to just bet 1 Gold on
      every game you play at this. If you're actually good at this game, then
      by all means, don't let me stop you from betting 1,000 Gold.
    
      *Hole 1*
      The first shot you should make you should aim alittle to the left to
      see a wine glass. You need to bank the shot off the wine glass to go
      behind the pithcher (whatever it is) that's to the right of the wine
      glass. When you do this, you should see the circle that you have to get
      the coin in. If you set the power just right, you can get it in the
      circle and win this hole in just two shots.
    
      *Hole 2*
      Here's another hole you can get in just two shots. If you bank the shot
      off the mug to the right of the pitcher to bounce somewhat behind the
      pitcher, then you should have an opne shot to the circle. Just put the
      right amount of power needed behind the second shot and you should have
      it. Hey, even I can't tell you how much power to put behind the shots
      since it all depends on where it lands.
    
      *Hole 3*
      Ok....here's where things get just a tiny bit trickier....that is if
      you're not doing this without this guide! You should see a wine glass
      on the far leftside of the table. Aim at this first. You can bank it
      if you want or just get the coin to rest near the glass, but just get
      it to the glass. When you do, you should be able to get a view of the
      circle to get it in or close to it.
    
      *Hole 4*
      Alright, this hole I've only been able to do it in three shots minimum.
      The first shot is at the wine glass to the right of your start
      position. Then you should see an opening between a glass and a pitcher,
      getting close towards the end of the table. Don't bank this shot, just
      get it to rest against the glass. When you do, the circle will be in
      plain sight.
    
    
      Knothole Glade - Card Sorting Game
    
      Ok....here's a very annoying game that you can be good at, if you
      didn't slip up so damn much in it and make mistakes. The timer on this
      is also small for the type of game it is. You have to search out the
      lowest numbered card and then work your way up to the highest. Now in
      this game you think an Ace is the highest, but nope. It's the lowest
      card you can find. The scale basically goes like this from lowest to
      highest:
    
                A - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - J - Q - K
    
      Now you have seven rounds to go through, and you have to be very quick,
      because you're going to need all the time you can muster on the last
      two rounds. Using the Left Thumbstick is how you navigate the cursor
      around over the cards. If you let the Left Thumbstick go from the
      direction you're holding it to, the cursor will automatically snap back
      to the middle of the cards, so keep that in mind and watch when you
      press the A Button. It looks like this from round to round:
    
      *Round 1*
    
                                     [][][]
    
      *Round 2*
    
                                      [][]
                                      [][]
    
      *Round 3*
    
                                     []  []
                                       []
                                     []  []
    
      *Round 4*
    
                                     [][][]
                                     [][][]
    
      *Round 5*
    
                                     [][][]
                                       []
                                     [][][]
    
      *Round 6*
    
                                     [][][]
                                     []  []
                                     [][][]
    
      *Round 7*
    
                                     [][][]
                                     [][][]
                                     [][][]
    
      So you can see where your time is a factor while trying to go from the
      low card to the high card from round to round. Again, the only reason
      why you should play this game is for the bonus item you get for winning
      the first game, a Scarlet Robe Hero Doll. Just bet 1 Gold and win this
      for a special quest in the game. Now some people out there can get real
      good at this game, and if you're one of them then bet 1,000 Gold and
      build up your money empire with this game. All I can say is that this
      game was not for me.
    
    
      Twinblade's Camp - Spot the Addition
    
      Alright people, this is the first gambling game that I can't truely
      spell out to you how to beat it. It's a basic memory game with a timer
      that you have to watch out for. You will be given a few items per round
      that will then be covered up and shown again, except with a new item
      in the mix. Your job is to find the extra item added. As you progress
      through each round, more items are added that you'll have to remember
      and then hunt out the extra item added. This is one game that you're
      guaranteed to screw up on more than once before you actually get a win
      at it. So once again, bet only 1 Gold and try to win at it just for the
      Twinblade Hero Doll so you can complete the Teacher's Doll Quest later
      in the game. I don't know anybody that's actually good at this game,
      but there may be a few of you out there that can bet 1,000 Gold at a
      time and win.
    
    
      Hook Coast - Shove Ha'Penny
    
      This is actually a fun little mini-game that I'm pretty much even at
      wins and losses in this game. I do bet 1,000 Gold at it, but it's only
      because I got better and better at it. When you start off at it, only
      bet 1 Gold to get the Maze Doll and to get the hang off the game. It
      uses the same power system that Coin Golf uses, so if you got some
      skills playing that game, then you'll do fine at this game. You can
      move the coin left to right to position the coin for a shot. Try aiming
      for the middle to get the 50 Points and the win with 2 shots. You can
      bump your coins into higher point areas with other coins, are screw
      yourself over by doing that too. The trick to winning at this game
      is to not put the full power behind the coin and figure out where in
      the middle of powering up the coin is where it will put it on 50 Points
      for you. Once you've got a groove going with this game, start betting
      higher and start bringing in a cash flow.
    
    
      Darkwood Camp - Blackjack
    
      This is where you'll find your first area to play blackjack in. Now
      alot of people already know how to play blackjack, so there's no reason
      to explain how to play it. Just get 21 or close to 21 without going
      over 21 and pray that the dealer screws up. Course, after the games I
      played against the dealer, I wish I could run into people like that.
      I mean the guy plays the game like a retard. I remember two games that
      I only had like 14 or 15 and the computer already had me beat at 16,
      and it kept drawing cards, causing itself to go over 21, giving me the
      win. Gotta say.....I liked the free little amount of money I raked in,
      but I wasn't going to push it with this game. This game to me is your
      own choice to play at your own risk. You may get an idiot dealer like
      me, or you may get one that will whip you every time.
    
    
      *Fist Fighting Prize Money*
    
      Yet another way to make money is to win at the local area fist fighter
      arenas. The only time you can fight is at night and you can only fight
      once per night. Make sure to win now! Most opponents you fight are very
      easy, with the exception of the area's leader. You get bonuses for
      passing a fight without taking any damage what so ever. That means
      block and dodge attacks, then give them a barrage of punches. A cheap
      way of getting in some free punches is to take the fight outside of the
      ring. You're not suppose to, but you only lose if you stay out for 10
      seconds, which will be shown by a small timer that appears. Just roll
      back into the ring to stop the timer, and then quickly roll out back
      to your opponent. You can also build up your Flourish Attack which
      comes in very handy for fighting the leaders since they block the most.
      Plus you knock your opponent down, giving you a few seconds to breathe
      and gather up a more effective strategy against the poor fool. If you
      win at all the arenas in Albion you'll get the Fist Fighter's Trophy,
      which means it's something to sell or use for Renown. The places to
      fight are:
    
      Bowerstone South Port
      Oakvale
      Twinblade's Camp
      Knothole Glade
    
      You have to beat each leader in the order shown from top to bottom to
      be able to fight at each place. That means you start at Bowerstone
      South Port and then move on to Oakvale, ultimately ending up at
      Knothole Glade to end your Fist Fighter's Quest. You can always fight
      at any of the Fist Fighter's Arenas even if you won the trophy, so if
      you're a good fighter, then here's where you can earn some change for
      yourself. Word of caution though, the leader's always get stronger,
      harder, and take longer to defeat as you progress through each Fight
      Club. But the money becomes more and more as you access new Fight Clubs
      to participate in, so just remember to Block, Dodge, and keep a high
      offensive in your matches. That's the key to winning in my book. Spend
      your time barraging your opponent with continuous punches til you have
      to stop to get into the ring. I know that you'll punch them more than
      enough that you'll end up outside the ring. If they keep blocking, then
      you'll work up your Flourish Attack soon enough to use on them and
      teach them that blocking won't save their ass.
    
    
    - Using the Menu -
    
    - A big part of the game is spent in your Inventory Menu. You access this
      menu by pressing the Back Button. Here you can manually select items
      that you specifically want to use, use expressions that aren't coming
      up randomly or in your Quick D-Pad Menu, view various info about your
      game thus far, check on Quests and your progress on them, etc etc etc,
      you get the idea. Here's where I'll explain it all and it's pratical
      uses for each thing in the Inventory Menu.
    
    
      *Selecting Items*
    
      Alright, when you start out your game and you've picked up a few items
      and weapons, you'll want to use them. Mainly items at first. Now there
      is no clear path that says items from the Main Inventory Menu, but
      there is Equipment. That is where you will find the place to browse
      your Items, Weapons, and Clothes. When you need to change clothes in
      order to pimp the ladies in town, or to get your weapons in check, then
      this is where you need to head to.
    
      When you select Clothes, you will then be given a set of new commands.
      These commands are all aspects of your clothes. The cursor starts you
      off though on top of the Suit command. This command puts on an entire
      suit of what you own. If you don't own all items of a suit, then your
      character will only wear what you do own of that suit. You'll know what
      you own of what suit when you go into this menu and see the clothes on
      your character. This is a very useful command when you're entering and
      exiting towns. I'd put on my Bright Will User's Suit when I enter towns
      and my Assassin Suit when I left towns. If you want to make your own
      customized suit, then go through each option from Head to Feet, and
      equip whatever it is that you want. You do have many many choices to
      making your own suit by doing this, though sometimes it may look a
      little goofy. I guess to each their own.....
    
      Selecting the Weapons command will bring up two choices, Melee Weapons
      and Ranged Weapons. You come to these choices in order to view the
      weapons that you currently have in your possession, to equip new
      weapons for future use, and to augment them with special power. Learn
      more about Augmenting weapons in the Weaponary Chapter of this guide.
    
      Now, selecting the Items command will bring up a few categories for you
      to browse through. From top to bottom the categories are:
    
      Trophies
      Potions
      Gifts
      Produce
      Other
    
      To get Trophies and look at them, you must complete Quests. This is the
      only way to get a trophy or two. Trophies are only good for so much in
      this game. The main thing they're good for is to earn you some Renown
      and to impress the ladies for marriage.......or men....if you're that
      way.
    
      The Potions menu will be very small to say the least. For the most part
      you will only find two types of potions here, which are Health
      and Mana Replenishing potions. Now you will pick up special potions as
      you explore Albion. These potions can be accessed in this menu.
    
      Gifts are just as it says, gifts. These are what are needed to get on
      the good side of the women......and a few men.....of Albion. Who you
      give them to and what item it is that you give up is totally up to you.
    
      Produce is where the majority of your Health replenishing items will
      be at. You can also find some other useful items in here such as items
      that will add to your Evil or Good meter. You can also find your items
      that you can use to sell to various vendors around Albion.
    
      The Other section is where you go to look at items that are made to be
      used at barbers or tattoo vendors. It also holds other miscellaneous
      items you may come across, such as the Treasure Clues or your Shovel.
      If you can't find your item that you just picked up anywhere else, then
      it's stashed away here.
    
    
      *Using Skills*
    
      One of the other options to choose from here in the Inventory Menu is
      the Skills option. This takes you to where you can set or use your
      Expressions or Magic.
    
      Expressions are earned as you progress through the game and do various
      acts. Depending on what acts you do is what will determine the
      Expressions you learn. The only Expressions that are learned slowly
      over time no matter what you do are the three Love Expressions. These
      three are the Flirt, Manly Arm Pump, and the Sexy Hero Pose. Another
      two that you learn no matter what are the Follow and Wait Commands.
      The three Love Expressions come up automatically when you're looking
      at a woman (or man if that's your preference....) in the D-Pad Quick
      Use Menu at the bottom left hand side of the screen, so no need to
      come in and set them to the Extra D-Pad Menu. Same with the Follow and
      Wait Commands, they appear in the D-Pad Menu as well. What you want to
      set in the Quick Commands D-Pad Menu are Expressions like, the Burp
      and Fart. When you learn more Expressions, set the to the D-Pad the way
      you want it set. This way you will be able to do a certain Expression
      on the fly when you need it, instead of hoping for it to randomly show
      up on the D-Pad.
    
      By selecting the Magic option, you can now check out the spells that
      you have learned through experience. You can also set your spells here
      as well. When you hold down the R Trigger, you notice that you have to
      cycle through sets of spells in order to use them. Well if you don't
      like the way a certain set is setup, then here's where you can change
      that line-up, so that you can have optimal magic at your disposal.
    
    
      *Bringing Up the Map*
    
      You do have a map of Albion that you can check over in the Inventory
      Menu. Use this to find locations of places that you need to get to, or
      to check out details of areas that you have already visited. You can
      use the map in two ways. The first way is the Region Scroll way. This
      is what it is always set to whenever you access the map. The Region
      Scroll goes by a list of all the places you've been to, and keeps them
      in order. The magnifying glass automatically moves to the area that you
      are selecting. If you want to manually move the magnifying glass
      yourself, then press the Y Button and enter into Map Scroll mode. You
      now control the magnifying glass and have a much better understanding
      of the paths you can take and what links to what in Albion. If you
      press the A Button, you will get a Zoomed Map of the area you accessed
      and details of that area. Hit the B Button to back out of all this and
      return to the Inventory Menu.
    
      Check out Wolfiesden's World Map Image located in the In-Depth FAQs
      section for a nice overview of Albion and all that you will traverse
      upon. This is at GameFAQs and it's the only place I've seen it at at
      this point in time.
    
    
      *Watching Over Quests*
    
      Simple enough to explain, this is where you go to check which Quests
      you currently are taking on, and which Quests you have completed during
      your journey. It is marked off by two separate options to chose from,
      Current Quests and Past Quests. Usually Optional Open-Ended Quests that
      are marked in orange are always on the Current Quests option.
      Every other Quest that is marked in yellow or silver will be placed in
      the Past Quests option upon completion.
    
    
      *Your Logbook*
    
      This is where you go to check up on various things located all over
      Albion that you have come across. From Items that you've found, to the
      very journey you're taking, it's all here. If you ever need to learn
      about anything in particular, then look into your Logbook and start
      reading up on a few things in order to clear up those questions you
      have.
    
      *Objects*
      The first and top option to chose from is the Objects option. This is
      where you go to find out information on Items that you've encountered
      on your journey around Albion. If you find that you don't know what you
      have in your hands and it's uses, then check out the Objects section
      of your Logbook and read up on it.
    
      *Towns*
      The next option is the Towns option. This isn't information about Towns
      and what the town is all about. Rather is about what you need to watch
      out for or what you need to learn about what you've already done in
      various towns. For example, you can learn about the crimes you've
      commited here, or learn alittle about Love and Marriage. It's all about
      learning what you can do in the towns, remember that if you ever need
      to bone up on a few odds and ends in the towns of Albion.
    
      *Basics*
      The next option that you have access to is the Basics option. If you
      ever forget the controls of the game, or you didn't read about them in
      the Instruction Manual or in this guide of mine, then here's where you
      can remember or finally learn those controls that will get you by alive
      in the game.
    
      *Story*
      Ok....this is where your story is recorded and the actions you've taken
      during your whole adventure in Albion. I will write down my story that
      I took in this game to show you how it goes. Remember that the actions
      you take and the decisions you make will cause your story to look
      different from mine! Also if you feel that reading my story is a
      spoiler for you, then please scroll down away from this.
    
    
      Theresa's Birthday
      It's Theresa's birthday today and I haven't got her a present. Father
      says he'll give me the money to buy one if I perform good deeds around
      town. There might be another way though.
    
      The Sacking of Oakvale
      Bandits have attacked Oakvale. The whole place is in flames. There are
      bodies everywhere. I've got to find Theresa and my parents.
    
      The Guild of Heroes
      Everything's happening too quickly. My home is gone, my family is dead,
      and now a man called Maze has brought me to this place, the Guild of
      Heroes. Why can't everything be as it was before?
    
      The Way of the Hero
      The Guild has been my home for some years now, and Whisper and the
      Guildmaster have been my new family. Training is getting harder all the
      time, yet somehow it feels right, like it's always been in my blood.
      I'm not allowed out of the Guild though, and I rarely ever see Maze. I
      often wonder what's happening beyond these walls.
    
      Graduation Day
      After so many years of preparation, I have finally completed my
      training. There's a whole world out there waiting to be explored. Maybe
      now I can find out what happened to my family too.
    
      First Quest
      I have now completed my first quest and got my first trophy too. The
      Guildmaster says that Maze wants to meet me at a tavern at Bowerstone.
      Probably wants to congratulate me.
    
      Theresa Still Alive?
      Maze told me he believes Theresa may have survived the raid all those
      years ago. He will let me know if he finds out more.
    
      The Raid on Orchard Farm
      I joined a group of Bandits in their assault on Orchard Farm. We stole
      some mysterious objects that the farmers had unearthed for someone
      called Lady Grey. Whisper was defending the farm, but I managed to
      defeat her.
    
      The Road Back to Oakvale
      I brought some Traders to Barrow Fields. Theresa and I used to play
      here, and it's where I last saw her. Maze wants to see me in Oakvale. I
      wonder if he has any news.
    
      Home Again
      I can't believe I'm back home. So much has changed. The people, the
      houses... I wonder if our house is still here.
    
      Visit the Seeress
      Maze hasn't been able to find out any more about Theresa, but he
      suggested that I go talk to the Blind Seeress who lives among
      Twinblade's bandits. I'll have to find the camp first.
    
      Theresa and Twinblade
      Theresa is alive. She had a dreadful story to tell; how she was blinded
      in the raid and ended up living among Twinblade's Bandit clan. Somehow
      her blindness has granted her the ability to see into the future, but
      her mind has suffered terribly and it is hard to make sense of what she
      says. She spoke of mother and of a grave choice I must make some day.
      Then something happened. A burst of energy unlocked an untapped power
      within me. Now I must meet Maze in his Guild quarters.
    
      An Old Friend
      Maze wants me to find an old friend of his, known only as the
      Archaeologist. He should be somewhere in Witchwood, which I can now
      reach through a Cullis Gate. Maze also mentioned that I should consider
      fighting in the Arena soon. All the best heroes compete there.
    
      The Archaeologist
      I found the Archaeologist hiding in a cave. He knows more about the Old
      Kingdom than anybody, and it seems there are people desperate for this
      knowledge. He suggested that I'm connected to whatever is happening in
      Albion right now, and to those strange objects unearthed at Orchard
      Farm. He was a friend of mother's long ago, and said I may be able to
      find out about her in the Arena. I will need a nomination from the
      Knothole Glade Chief first.
    
      A Letter from Theresa
      Theresa passed through here not too long ago and left a letter for me,
      along with a book that explains our connection to a weapon of great
      power, the Sword of Aeons.
    
      The White Balverine
      I have slain the White Balverine that has been stalking Knothole Glade.
      In return, I have received a nomination to enter the Arena. This will
      be the greatest test of my powers yet. And I may be able to find
      information about Mother there.
    
      The Arena Champion
      I have emerged victorious from the Arena. The final round pitted me
      against Whisper. I think I heard her brother shouting out from the
      crowds as I spilt her blood.
    
      Scarlet Robe
      I found my mother's statue in the Hall of Heroes. She was known as
      Scarlet Robe, a fierce slayer of Balverines. Jack of Blades spoke to me
      as I stood there. He said that she's alive and living in solitude. If I
      were to bring Theresa to him, he would take us to see her. It is
      clearly a trick, but he does know something. He awarded me the
      Champion's Seal, which will allow me to enter Bowerstone North.
    
      Theresa at the Grey House
      Theresa has found out where mother is. She's being kept in Bargate
      Prison by Jack. It was he who blinded my sister so long ago, he who
      raided our home. It's impossible to gain entrance to the prison through
      the main gate, but the Archaeologist knows of a secret way in. Theresa
      has left a Quest Card at the Guild with the details. She also mentioned
      that mother will be able to unlock an untapped power within me.
    
      The Chase
      I battled against some strange creatures that had captured the
      Archaeologist. When I freed him, he told me of a secret way into
      Bargate Prison in Lychfield Graveyard. It hasn't been opened in
      centuries.
    
      The Lychfield Passage
      I have found the way into Bargate Prison. It feels more like a descent
      into the netherworld after passing through that realm of the dead.
    
      Captured
      Jack of Blades was waiting for me all along, and now he has us both.
      Mother has been through decades of torture, and now Jack has a new
      means to persuade her to tell him what he wants: me. I have to find a
      way out of here.
    
      Freedom
      We have finally escaped at last, but Jack knows where to find the key
      that will unlock the Sword of Aeons. I have to get to Hook Coast before
      he discovers how to retrieve it, and the Darkwood portal is the only
      way to get there. Mother has gone to find Theresa. Before she left, she
      released a great dormant power within me. I have never felt stronger.
    
      Gateway to Hook Coast
      After feeding it the souls of undead warriors, the ancient Cullis Gate
      has been reactivated. Hook Coast awaits on the other side.
    
      Hook Coast Abbey
      A magical barrier is blocking the way to the Abbey, and the locals
      speak of a mysterious figure haunting the place. It can only be Jack.
      Mother has told me to meet her in Maze's quarters. She has found
      something there.
    
      The Journal
      There was no trace of mother here. I have found a book of Ancient Hook
      Coast magics that may help to dispel the barrier. I don't know what it
      was doing in Maze's quarters, but I can't read the language it's
      written in anyway. Perhaps the Guildmaster could translate it?
    
      The Betrayal
      Maze betrayed me, the old fool. He was part of the raid on my home
      before having second thoughts and saving me. He knew even then who I
      was, and believed I would one day be able to stop Jack. Then his belief
      waivered and he joined Jack once more. He performed the ritual to
      retrieve the Key, and now Jack is using it to activate the Focus Sites
      around Albion, which will unlock the Sword. I must return to the Guild
      immediately.
    
      The Focus Sites
      Jack has activated all the Sites. Not even the Guild and all its heroes
      could stop him. And now Albion is in chaos. Old Kingdom beasts are
      appearing everywhere, and the air itself seems charged with dark
      energies. Jack has taken the Mother into the Chamber of Fate, where the
      Sword of Aeons will be waiting for him. I have to get there now.
    
      The Sword of Aeons
      I have killed Jack of Blades, and now the Sword of Aeons is mine. I
      have fed it Theresa's blood. Nothing in Albion can stop me.
    
    
      As you can tell by the story above, I played an evil path. What can I
      say? I love to steal. Stealing is evil and so that's how I ended up
      doing alot of bad things in Albion to save my thieving ass. How your
      story will end up and the things said in it, is based upon how you play
      your game.
