      SPOILER ALERT: Reading ahead of where you are in the walkthrough will
      certainly spoil your play experience, and is not recommended. The checklists
      will also ruin the surprise of what rewards are given for various
      collections you might pursue while playing. If you want a truly spoiler free
      experience, play through the story with no guide, then play a new character
      using a walkthrough to earn everything you may have missed. Fable II
      supports up to six characters per user profile.

    (A) Introduction                                                      {ITRDTN}
    =============================================================================|
    
    This guide consists of a walkthrough, play tips, and a set of thorough yet
    concise checklists of items that may interest you while you play. This guide
    is intended to supplement the game manual and in-game help systems, which I
    highly recommend you make use of.
    
    The Power Gamer Walkthrough section is written as concisely and spoiler-free
    as possible. The quests are listed in the order that they become available.
    I point out collectibles as they become available, and recommend using the
    corresponding checklists to track your progress for whatever interests you.
    
    The Power Gaming Tips section is somewhat of an indulgence for me to share my
    experiences, having played through four times. If I'm lucky my tips will help
    you make more informed decisions and have more fun playing Fable II.
    
    Fable II offers many sub-goals for you to choose from. It is important to note
    that missing out on some or even all of these collectibles will not ruin your
    play experience at all. For example, while the legendary weapons are cool, and
    some may help you along the way, it is in no way necessary to collect even one
    of them to have a fun and successful play-through.
    
    The checklists are self-contained, so that you can use the lists to collect
    items that interest you and skip those that do not, without missing relevant
    information. I will precede each checklist with general notes, including any
    relations to Xbox LIVE Achievements. I am not writing an Achievements section,
    because the only challenging Achievements are The Completionist and The
    Dollcatcher; the former can be earned by using the checklists, and the latter
    by trading copies of the character doll you earn at the shooting range online.
    
    A good way to make use of the checklists in this guide would be to select the
    list you want to print, and use the "Print Selection" option. In this way, you
    could print each checklist separately to use while you play.

    (B.0) Prologue [Childhood]                                            {B0CHLD}
    You begin as a child in Old Town. You can run back and pick up Rose's Diary in
    the wooden shack that you reside in. Then follow your sister to see what the
    commotion is all about. After the cutscenes you will be looking for work.
    Perform each of the quests outlined below to collect the requisite 5g.
    After collecting 5g, return to the peddler and buy the music box.
    Continue to follow the game's instructions, and enjoy the story scenes.

    (B.0.0) Albion's Most Wanted                                          {B00AMW}
    ..............................................................................
    MAIN STORY
    -
    The first quest you should take up is from officer Derek; collect the five
    lost warrants. This will take a while and you will be doing some other quests
    in order to complete it. Head down the alley and play through the dog intro
    scene. Follow the glowing trail if you have it enabled, and pick up the
    Warrant for Arson off of the alley floor. Just ahead on the ground is the
    Warrant for Sneakiness, near the steps of the warehouse. The dog will show you
    the Warrant for Burglary on the ground near stacked large crates in front of
    the warehouse. The Warrant for Guntoting is on the ground across the street
    from the warehouse. The Warrant for Assault is earned as a reward for the
    Tramp's Treasure quest. Once you have all 5, return them to officer Derek for
    the good of Old Town, or give them to Arfur to help further his criminal
    efforts there. Either way you will earn 1g. The permanent results of your
    choice can be found in the Consequences section [C00AMW].

    ..............................................................................
    MAIN STORY
    -
    Barnum is testing his new device right next to the alley that Derek mentioned.
    Strike a pose for him and earn 1g.
    
    ..............................................................................
    (B.0.2) The Beetle Hunt                                               {B02TBH}
    ..............................................................................
    MAIN STORY
    -
    In front of the warehouse up some steps you will find Balthazar, who offers
    you 1g to exterminate the beetles on the second floor. As soon as you step
    inside, Arfur will shout to you and offer you 1g to smash the boxes instead.
    Either way you get paid and earn a tiny amount of Good or Evil points.
    
    ..............................................................................
    (B.0.3) Tramp's Treasure                                              {B03TMT}
    ..............................................................................
    MAIN STORY
    -
    Pete and Betty are standing across from the warehouse. Pete will pay you 1g to
    go and recover his bottle of wine from Magpie the thief. Betty will pay you 1g
    to give it to her instead. Magpie is sleeping at the end of the alley. Sneak
    up and grab the booze with note, then return it to whomever you choose.
    
    ..............................................................................
    (B.0.3) The Love Letter                                               {B03TLL}
    ..............................................................................
    MAIN STORY
    -
    Across from the traveling salesman is a house where you will find Monty pining
    for his love Belinda. Take his proposal letter and either give it to Belinda
    upstairs or her mother downstairs.

    (B.1) Adolescence                                                     {B1ADLS}
    You begin adolescence in Bower Lake, on the bridge of the Gypsy Camp.
    
    ..............................................................................
    (B.1.0) The Birth of a Hero                                           {B10BOH}
    ..............................................................................
    MAIN STORY
    -
    Collect the items from the chest at your caravan. I recommend sleeping here
    for the bonus, then renting it out before meeting Theresa. She will walk you
    out the camp gates and give you the (Bower Lake Tomb Seal). Before entering
    the Bower Lake Tomb, explore the region. Priorities are the treasure hunting
    books and silver keys.
    -
    Checklist: Potion of Life<01>, Silver Keys<01,02>, 1-Key Chest<01> (100g),
    1-Key Chest<02> (Dog Tricks! The Bunny Hop), Treasure Hunting! Book 1 & 2.
    -
    Use the seal on the door to enter the old tomb. Dive down into the water and
    proceed into the first large cavern. Meet the local Giant Beetles. Dig up the
    (250g) and find the (Silver Key<05>) before moving on. There is a gate you can
    open in the next room, with a chest (Mood Ring). Shoot the switch to proceed.
    There is an immediate left to a room with a chest (Rusty Mace) and two dig
    spots (Dye, 200g). Continue on to a watery area. Follow the tips and explore
    to find (Brendan's Diary) and (Erik's Letter). Next you will come across
    (Drake's Suicide Note). When you have all three, a dive spot will appear,
    visible from the wooden bridge. Dive to collect the (Bewitching Augment) and
    take note of Gargoyle<06> in this room for later. Continue across the wooden
    bridges to the chamber with a shoot, strike, shoot switch. In the next passage
    take the detour to the left to find two chests (Amethyst, Jet), as well as
    bookshelves and a dig spot (250g). Finally you will cross a stone bridge into
    The Chamber of Fate. Take note that the chest here can only be opened once,
    and will give you your bonus items earned from playing at the game website
    [www.fable2.com]. Step into the light to activate your Heroic powers, and
    level up a spell to use on the switch; I recommend Raise Dead.

    (B.1.1) The Bandit                                                    {B11BND}
    ..............................................................................
    MAIN STORY
    100 Renown
    Thag's Head
    -
    Head towards Bowerstone to learn that the road is closed until the bandit Thag
    is defeated. Head to the northwest to find his camp. Choose to either give the
    key to the slaver or set the hostages free. Or if you're a tricky one, give
    the key to the slaver for the money, then kill him and set the hostages free.
    
    ..............................................................................
    (B.1.2) The Journey Begins                                            {B12TJB}
    ..............................................................................
    MAIN STORY
    -
    Bowerstone Market:
    Head to Bowerstone to arrive at Bowerstone Market. Take a left inside the gate
    and dive down to the dive spot under the docks to get (Silver Key<06>). Enter
    the furniture store in the northeast of the town square, head downstairs and
    enter the cellar there to find (Silver Key<07>) behind a shoot switch gate.
    -
    If you have Fable II Pub Games XBLA loot, collect it from a gamemaster in the
    Cow and Corset pub on the west side of the town square; I recommend earning
    money and the (Championship Pistol) if you can. This gun won't be deadly for
    very long, but it's built in Discipline augment gives a good xp multiplier.
    -
    Walk under the clock tower to begin a countdown of Theresa's arrival.
    Spend some time working as a Blacksmith if necessary, towards buying the Cow
    and Corset pub as soon as possible. When Theresa arrives, walk with her to
    learn about the Tattered Spire and the plans Theresa has for you. Your next
    story goal is to head to Oakfield, but I recommend exploring the Bowerstone
    areas to collect treasures first. Head towards Fairfax Gardens and be sure to
    get the 5-Key Silver Chest<06> (Potion of Life<02>) on the way.
    -
    Fairfax Gardens:
    Go underneath the porch steps to Castle Fairfax to find (Silver Key<16>). This
    area has several dig spots among the gardens. Go to Bowerstone Old Town next.
    -
    Bowerstone Old Town:
    Make your way down the alley to the east and find a cellar entrance. Inside
    you will find (Silver Key<09>). Next head to the warehouse, open the door and
    find (Silver Key<10>) under the steps. The Invisible Hand house near the exit
    to Rookridge contains (Silver Key<11>) on the second floor balcony. Next visit
    Bowerstone Cemetery, and look for Demon Door<02> there.
    -
    Bowerstone Cemetery:
    Kick two nearby chickens into Demon Door<02> to enter the Forgotten Keep, and
    collect the three xp potions from the treasure chest therein. If you are
    interested in Gargoyles I recommend learning the Aimed Ranged Attack skill at
    this point. Find the shack in the northwest with (Silver Key<13>). Towards
    the south is 1-Key Silver Chest<04> (Mood Ring), and an expression statue (use
    "Vulgar Thrust") that opens a shoot switch for you to chase south and uphill.
    Along this path are Gargoyles<14,15,16>, 10-Key Silver Chest<05> (1,000g) and
    (Silver Key<12>). On your way out, there is another expression statue near the
    first, to the west by the swampy area [use "Point and Laugh"] that opens a
    door nearby - go inside to find an underground crypt with a chest (Dead Handy,
    Dog Tricks! Play Dead). If interested, you can go northwest and shoot through
    the trees at Gargoyle<13>.
    -
    You are now finally ready to head to Oakfield via the Rookridge exit.
    You might want to upgrade your weapons and buy some healing potions. If you
    can afford them, xp potions are extremely useful. I am saving my money to buy
    businesses at this point, so I get by with the potions found along the way.
    Also note that I did not backtrack to shoot Gargoyles yet, but I could have.
    -
    Just outside the exit to Rookridge is 5-Key Silver Chest<07> (500g).
    -

    -
    Rookridge:
    Off the right hand side of the road is 5-Key Silver Chest<09> (Ruby). You will
    come across an overturned carriage being picked by a shady character. You may
    choose to loot the bodies or let the dead rest. Continue on and you will see
    a walkway out to a round overlook area with a tall statue. Explore that area
    and you will find (Silver Key<18>). Continue on the road and you will find a
    Demon Door<04> that is amused by dog tricks. If you have five dog tricks to
    perform you can enter and collect the treasure chest (Potion of Life<03>).
    Recall that Thumbs Up, Praise and other simple expressions count. Next you
    will reach a broken wooden bridge. Dive down and swim past the first beach.
    At the second beach, you will find the entrance to Gemstone Grotto. Besides a
    bunch of beetles, this place contains (Silver Key<23>) and a chest (200g).
    Swim back to the first beach to find Gargoyle<22> and a sad, funny man who
    wants you to go with him inside the Hobbe Cave. Besides the namesake Hobbes,
    there are a few dig spots to look out for and Gargoyle<24> to shoot at on the
    rickety wooden bridges. Immediately after the scene with your companion, when
    Theresa talks to you, there is a dig spot with (Silver Key<21>), next to some
    glowing mushrooms, before you step out into the stone walkways full of Hobbes.
    If you start combat before digging up the key, I recommend clearing immediate
    threats and returning to dig it up before finishing this area. After you climb
    the ladder and exit, walk around behind the shed to find (Silver Key<19>).
    Press on to Oakfield.
    -
    Oakfield:
    Enter the Manure Manor house to find (Silver Key<24>). Gargoyle<26> lives on
    the stone bridge in front of the pub. Activate the statue plinth near the pub.
    Follow the road north to find (Silver Key<25>) among some bales of hay in
    front of the Luminous Cottage. Head north and a bit east to find the sculptor
    in a barn.

    (B.1.3) The Sculptor                                                  {B13SCL}
    ..............................................................................
    OPTIONAL, REPEATABLE
    -
    This is an infinitely repeatable quest; there are statue plinths in various
    locations, each of which must be activated to allow their use. The sculptor
    will make a statue of your hero in the pose that you hold for her. You will
    earn renown for each and you earn more for a perfect pose, and higher traffic
    areas. If you fail a pose, you can return and retry for any location the next
    day. The first statue attempt she makes of you in Oakfield is free of charge.
    -
        Fairfax Gardens     500g    Plinth is in the fountain.
        Oakfield             50g    Plinth is in front of the pub.
        Brightwood           75g    Plinth is at an intersection of roads.
        Westcliff           100g    Plinth is near the shooting range.
        Bloodstone          150g    Plinth is in front of the pub.
    -
    Circle around behind the barn to find and shoot Gargoyle<27>. Enter the
    Porridge Cottage to find (Silver Key<26>) on the second floor. Head towards
    the eastern lake to find (Silver Key<27>) on its southwest bank, adjacent to
    the road that winds up to the Temple of Light. Gargoyle<28> can be found on a
    ruined archway on the northwest shore.

    -
    When you enter the Temple of Light, you will learn of the ritual and be tasked
    to build up your reputation to earn the abbot's trust. Head back to the pub to
    find Barnum and complete his quest and as many others as you like before
    returning.
    -
    After your renown is high enough, you are welcomed by the abbot and tasked
    with serving as armed escort to his daughter through the wellspring of light.
    Meet sister Hannah and enter the Wellspring Cave.
    -
    Travel through the sparkly cave to the central chamber, where Hannah will step
    on a switch to open the first door. Escort her to this room and stand on the
    plate while she collects water. Don't forget to collect (Silver Key<29>) from
    behind the plate steps. On your way out you will face some Hollow Men.
    Return to the central chamber and then the second path that Hannah opens.
    In the second room you will have to stand on a plate up and away from Hannah.
    This means you will be using ranged attacks and spells to protect her. My
    preference is Time Control 1 and Inferno 2. Return to the central chamber.
    Your dog pwns hollow men. Hannah loves it. Moving on, you will fight a few
    waves of them, then a headless hollow man. Move on to the final chamber and
    Hannah will bless the water. A monk arrives with bad news and this quest
    becomes "The Hero of Strength". Follow Hannah to the temple.

    The most cost effective use of this quest is to make 1,000g donations to get
    25 good and purity points at a time. Potions are more effective for using gold
    to earn xp - think of the xp here as a tiny bonus to the good and purity.

    Return to the Chamber of Fate in the guild cave where Theresa will send you on
    a mission to find the mage at Brightwood Tower. Exit the cave and go south to
    the road east to Brightwood.
    -
    Brightwood:
    Take a left at the first intersection and follow the path to a Hobbe ambush
    and (Silver Key<30>) near some large horse statues. Return to the main road
    and follow it until you reach a statue plinth in front of a closed gate.
    Activate the plinth, then open the gate and continue through a Hobbe ambush to
    find a second gate. Pass through to the Brightwood Tower where you will face
    some Spire Guards. Fight your way up the terrace steps until you cross a patio
    and take note of the inactive cullis gate on the ground. On your left from
    here is a large pot like decoration made of four large demons. Later on this
    thing will be gone and this is where you will jump down to enter The Archon's
    Knot. Moving on you will find the steps blocked with flaming debris. After the
    story scene, Theresa will tell you to return to the guild cave. However, a few
    new quests open up, and so she will have to wait.
    -
    Exit the tower and take a left to access the area behind. Follow the winding
    path of steps down and find 15-Key Silver Chest<12> (Discipline Augment). You
    can find Gargoyle<30> on the tiny island tomb to the southeast.

    task of bringing the bandits to justice, then head to their camp in the
    south. After defeating the waves of bandits and their leader Ripper, Giles
    will show up and consider killing Ripper himself. Choose to stop him for not.

    Head to the south to meet the bandit leader Ripper at his camp by whistling
    three times. Accept the task of killing Giles and his friends. Head to the
    northwest expecting to be shot at. Once you have (Giles' Cellar Key) you may
    either return the key to Ripper, which is the lame way to go, or use the key
    yourself to access Giles' Cellar, which contains (The Enforcer). There are
    three floor plates to press in the cellar to open access to (Silver Key<34>).

    Before you leave Brightwood you may be interested in Gargoyle<29> in the
    southwest near (Silver Key<31>), and (Silver Key<32>) in the southeast near
    the bandit camp.
    -
    At this point you should have enough money to buy the potion and book stores,
    and when the (Treasure Hunting, Book 3) book is available, buy and use it.
    Then go to Bower Lake to dig up (Treasure Hunting, Book 4). You can then go
    to the alley next to the Cow & Corset to dig up (Silver Key<08>).

    Return to the guild cave to hear Theresa's plan. Head to Bowerstone Market and
    find Jeeves in the Cow & Corset pub's second floor. He wants 1000g in exchange
    for the (Map to Lucien's Diary). Return to Bower Lake and head to the location
    where you will encounter your first Troll. Ranged attacks and spells are the
    way to go here - raise dead is also great against Trolls. Give (Lucien's
    Diary) to Theresa in the guild cave. She will give you the translated pages.
    Head to Brightwood.
    -
    Brightwood:
    Follow the path south to meet up with Hammer and enter the Bandit Coast.
    -
    The Bandit Coast:
    Carve a path through the bandits until you pass through a makeshift camp.
    Farther down the road you will see (Silver Key<35>) off to the left.
    Also within sight from here, off the road and over a short wall you will find
    10-Key Silver Chest<14> (1,000g). At the next sharp bend in the road by the
    cliff edge, follow the side path along the cliff to find the entrance to a
    nameless cave with a chest and Gargoyle<34>. Return to the main path and you
    will eventually come to the main bandit camp. Gargoyle<35> is hiding atop a
    ruined tower in the camp. Beyond the camp gates lies the road to Westcliff.
    -
    Road to Westcliff:
    Follow the winding path and defeat two pairs of Balverines. Just off the path
    to the north is Gargoyle<36>. Proceed to meet the grieving widow. Take a right
    up some stone steps and climb the spiral stairs. Look down to see Gargoyle<37>
    and blast him. Jump down and follow the path across a wooden bridge into an
    abandoned camp area. In a shed to your left is (Silver Key<36>), and in the
    middle of the area is 20-Key Silver Chest<16> (10,000g). Proceed past Demon
    Door<07> and through the freaky mist pond. Cross the large stone bridge and
    then immediately to your right find a place to dive down. Swim to your right
    to find (Silver Key<37>) on a small embankment. Swim southeast and around a
    narrowing in the cliffs to enter a nameless cave with a ladder back up. Catch
    back up to where you had just crossed the large stone bridge. Enter the ruins
    but don't go into the Howling Halls yet; turn around and look up and to the
    left of the archway you just came through to see Gargoyle<38>.
    -
    The Howling Halls:
    Proceed through this charming tomb to the large chamber full of friends.
    Dispatch your enemies and move around; look at the pillar and Hammer will use
    it to open a new path for your escape. Cross the rubble bridge and look to the
    right hand side of the room to see Gargoyle<40> up on the wall. Proceed up and
    out until you reach a large circular room. At the top of the winding steps you
    will see a recessed area with (Silver Key<39>). Collect it and exit.
    -
    Westcliff Camp:
    You will emerge on a path a short distance from the entrance to the Westcliff
    Camp at the foot of the Crucible. Head into the camp and make a left, open the
    gate and start down to the beach. Ahead of you on the cliff wall you can see
    Gargoyle<39>. Behind some crates by the docks you will find (Silver Key<38>).
    Head back up and past the Crucible entrance, and wind around to the shooting
    range. Along the way is a side path to the statue plinth. Participate in the
    shooting range mini-game until you earn the (Red Dragon Pistol) for scoring
    175+ if you can. This is also where you earn your character doll as a prize
    for scoring in the range of 150-174. Using a flintlock pistol is easiest for
    this challenge, and it takes perseverence and practice. Near the shooting
    range is 5-Key Silver Chest<15> (Bewitching Augment, Diamond).

    the Discipline augment. This will help you earn experience faster. Also, be
    prepared to buy xp potions of will between rounds from the vendors if you can.
    When you are ready, climb the main steps and talk to Mad Dog. Don't worry
    about getting perfect rounds your first time through this, because you won't
    earn anything for it yet. This will become a repeatable quest later on. After
    you win, exit the crucible and enjoy the scenes. Pay attention to the warning

    possible to avoid losing any xp, but you will have to be obedient throughout
    to do so, which is less fun. You can lose abilities that you had earned in

    to your left, going up and away from the path to the Commandant. Take the side
    stairs up and turn left to find another chest (Balverine Strength Potion); the
    contents again seem random. Head back downstairs and continue on to pass in
    front of a row of cells apparently sealed by magic. Bob is here and ready to
    chat. Follow him until you see Garth in the last cell on your right. Press on
    climbing several flights of steps to reach the Commandant. If you obey his
    commands, you will not lose any xp. If you disobey you will be drained of xp.
    -
    The Tattered Spire : Week 38
    After the conversation with Bob, a guard will approach with instructions to
    report to the detention center. You will pass by Garth along the way - he will
    describe the Spire a bit more. You will arrive to find six cells holding some
    starving prisoners and a heartless guard taking a break for lunch. Your task
    is to take over for him and watch the prisoners for 3 minutes. There is a
    lever outside each cell that will drop food in for them. If you pull a lever,
    you will be drained of several thousand general experience points and gain 30
    Good points. Feeding them three times makes you lose about 16k and pass out.
    If you let ~30 secs pass without feeding them, you will gain 25 Evil points.
    -
    The Tattered Spire : Week 137
    Again you are summoned to see the Commandant. When you arrive you will find
    Bob lying on the floor, babbling incoherently. Your orders are to take the
    sword from the Commandant and kill Bob. Your options include not taking the
    sword [10 Evil], killing Bob [50 Evil], or attacking the Commandant [50 Good].
    -
    NOTE: I lost about 70k general xp and my rank 4 Accuracy dropped to rank 3.
    Totally worth it though - I'll earn it back in no time.
    -
    The Tattered Spire : The Hero of Will
    You are summoned to see the Commandant once more. Notice Garth is not in his
    former cell. The Commandant tells you to investigate a guard that has failed
    to report in. Search the body to get weapons and 3 health potions. Set your
    spells and bring your A game, the Spire Guards are non-trivial opponents. When
    you reach the Commandant's chamber, you will observe a new shipment of men
    arriving. The Commandant does not fight fair, summoning guards constantly. Use
    your spells to their maximum effect and don't hesitate to use potions and stay
    alive. After the showdown, follow Garth through the cullis gate. The fight is
    not yet over. Shoot or blast the guards that stay at range and use magic to
    quickly dispatch the waves that close in on you. When you finally reach the
    ship and escape, you may well be out of healing potions - don't sweat it.

    Find Hammer drinking at The Lucky Heather tavern in Rookridge. After the scene
    Theresa tells you to take some time to recuperate before heading to the guild.
    Travel a bit and she will call you. At the guild cave your team makes plans to
    use Garth's cullis gate at Brightwood Tower. When you reach Garth and Hammer,
    Garth decides to sneak around the back way. Follow him until you see that the
    Spire Guards have the place surrounded. Defeat the lot of them and cross the
    small stone bridge where you will meet another batch of Spire enemies. Repeat
    this up and into the tower. When you reach the cullis gate, Garth will have to
    charge it up while you guard him from waves of Spire attack. When the gate is
    100% operational, and you get tired of killing Spire lieutenants, use the gate
    and travel to Wraithmarsh.

    MAIN STORY
    -
    Wraithmarsh:
    You arrive in sad shape, and neither Garth nor Hammer got through the gate. On
    the bright side, your faithful dog is with you. Once you are free to move
    around, step inside the nearby house to take care of Gargoyle<41>. Then pass
    under the sign that reads "Oakvale", cross some water and follow the path to
    reach a house with Gargoyle<42> up on an outside wall. The path turns to the
    southeast here. Follow the fork to the left and go into the house to find
    (Silver Key<40>) on the second floor. When you enter the water you will face
    your first banshee in combat. The banshee cannot be damaged until you slay her
    shadow minions. Shoot her head to destroy her. Beyond the water the path forks
    again. Follow the left-hand side uphill and across the wooden bridge. When you
    come upon some broken ruined archways, look on the right-hand side to find
    Gargoyle<43>, then climb the stone spiral steps and continue carving a path
    through hollow men until you cross a large stone bridge and eventually fight
    your first elder hollow man. Look to the left at the bottom of the steps here
    in the semi-circle of small crypts to find (Silver Key<41>). As you walk away
    from the circle of crypts downhill, turn around to find Gargoyle<44>. Continue
    to make your way around to the northwest and you will face another banshee in
    a watery area. Take the side path to the right through the fog and water to
    find (Silver Key<42>). Return to the main path, pass the hut with the chest in
    it and you will run into a swamp troll. Run around him at medium range,
    dodging his projectiles and tunneling attacks, shooting his soft spots when
    they show up. Continue on across the bridge, up the steps, and open the gate.
    Defeat the hollow men and unlock the gate ahead, then enter the crypt passage
    to Bloodstone.
    -
    Bloodstone:
    Open the crypt door to your right to find an expression statue. Use the Pick
    Up Line expression on it, then head up the path to find (Silver Key<47>) in a
    sarcophagus in a small crypt on your right. Demon Door<09> is on your right as
    you continue. You can't miss 15-Key Silver Chest<18> (Golden Touch Augment) at
    the cliff-side overlooking the sea. When you reach the docks, dive into the
    bay and swim to a tiny beach in the northwest to see Gargoyle<47>. Swim to the
    southwest end of the docks to find a dive spot with (Silver Key<48>). On the
    southern docks is a wooden loading crane with Gargoyle<48>. Head over to the
    bard and then east on the uphill road a bit. Look to the south between the
    buildings to see Gargoyle<49>. Follow the path east and look for a cellar door
    next to the furniture shop. Enter the cellar and hit the strike switch on the
    right and smash up the barrels to retrieve (Silver Key<49>). Now continue up
    the eastern path and enter the mansion to meet Reaver. You will need 20,000
    Renown to prove yourself worthy of his attention.

    NOTE: The Brightwood Tower quest will not disappear, which is why I am listing
    it later in this walkthrough.

    Once you have earned enough renown, Reaver will ask that you return (Reaver's
    Dark Seal) to its rightful owners in Wraithmarsh. Fast travel to The Drowned
    Farm and follow the trail to the entrance.
    -
    The Shadow Court:
    Walk through the descending passages until you face some shadow hobbes. Keep
    going down and use Time Control magic to run across the spike traps. Step on
    the switch, then turn around and shoot Gargoyle<46>. In the next large room is
    a breakable wall that leads to (Silver Key<46>). The exit gate is locked until
    you defeat the waves of shadow creatures. After the gate opens, jump down the
    hole. Continue to meet the crying girl and the shadow court. Choose to either
    hold the seal and have your hero aged by the court, or give the seal to the
    girl and let her be aged instead. Returning to Reaver will start the
    Bloodstone Assault quest, so be sure that you finished all of the side-quests
    that you are interested in first.

    Drop down onto the ship wreckage to get another (1,500g) chest. Head back up
    the path and stop when you reach the dead end overlooking the large waterfalls
    basin. Look to your left and jump down to find (1,500g) in a chest. Dive down

    reach and open the chest containing (The Stone of Myr'Bregothil). In the room
    full of coffins, smash the wall to find (Silver Key<15>) before smashing the
    other wall and proceeding out. Drop down and walk to the dig spot to trigger
    three waves of hollow men. Up ahead the passage opens up into a huge cavern.
    Strike the orb, then shoot it to activate a bridge. Repeat this to cross the
    cavern. Stop at the exit and turn around to shoot Gargoyle<17>. Open the chest
    to trigger more hollow men - be careful not to attack their leader out on the
    stone bridge unless you intend to steal the gem you first collected. Once the
    enemies are clear, you can approach and talk to the leader and choose to give
    the gem back. The dialogue here is pretty funny if you care to stick around.

    WARNING: Returning to Reaver to start this quest will take you through to the
    final main story mission, I marked these as "CHAINED" for clarity.
    -
    After the scenes, follow Reaver through the escape tunnel.
    -
    Reaver's Rear Passage:
    Follow Reaver through the basement rooms and across the wooden bridges in the
    caves. You will be facing Spire Guards throughout. Reaver's dialogue in this
    section is worth listening to carefully - very funny. Eventually you jump down
    and look out to see Reaver's escape ship. Walk slowly at this part and let him
    go first to see a great scene where Reaver kills six guards in 3 seconds. You
    will emerge on Smuggler's Beach where Hammer and Garth are waiting. After the
    scenes you will be fighting a great shard which summons waves of spire guards.
    Look for the great shard to open its top and expose a white energy sphere for
    you to shoot. Watch out for a charged up blast from the shard, which you can
    see ahead of time as the ground glows beneath your feet. When the great shard
    falls, there is more scene dialogue between the heroes, and Theresa teleports
    you all.

    You will awaken as a child in an idyllic farm house with your sister Rose.
    She has set up several mini-games for you to participate in, including hunting
    beetles in the field, shooting bottles hidden all over, and kicking chickens
    into their coop. Once all activities are done, Rose says it's bed time.
    NOTE: At any time, you can sleep in the bed to skip these activities.
    -
    You awake in the night to the sound of a music box. Follow the sound out of
    the house and down the road. When you reach the music box, pick it up.

    You are back in the Spire. Advance to face Lucien. Use the music box to drain
    his powers. With Lucien defeated, Theresa uses the Spire's power to grant you
    one wish. See the Consequences section [C33RTB] for details and spoilers.
    -
    You will be returned to the docks in Oakfield.
    -
    Two of the remaining quests require large sums of gold; at least 1,250,000g.
    While purchasing more businesses and renting out homes is the best source of
    income, jobs are a good supplement and the most lucrative one is bartending.
    Notice that the timing bar always turns green at the same fixed point along
    the curve, and you should be able to rack up obscene multipliers. All of the
    jobs are tedious, unfortunately.

    Bowerstone Market:
    Meet Gordon at the docks in Bowerstone Market, where he will give you some
    items in exchange for agreeing to help his people: (Knothole Island, Vol I),
    (One Burned Calorie Potion), (Assassin Gloves), (Knothole Knight Boots), and
    (Solar Shielding Spectacles). Travel with him to Knothole Island.
    -
    Knothole Island:
    Upon arrival at the Knothole Island docks, head up the path and into the small
    town. I recommend buying the available shop, stall and pair of homes. Meet the
    Chieftain in the small house near the grave stones. Follow the trail until you
    collect the (Ice Key). Return to the town and head up the hill to reach the
    entrance to the Ice Shrine; unlock and enter the shrine.
    -
    Ice Shrine:
    Head up the cavern to an open area with igloos. Smash through the icicle wall
    to reveal a hole in the ice, then vault down. Use the lever to melt the ice
    block and proceed. Head down the left staircase to find a fun orb puzzle. Be
    ready to follow the orb around and either melee, ranged, or magic strike it.
    I recommend putting an attack spell in slot 1 for this purpose (e.g. Inferno).
    If you are having trouble, be patient and keep at it. Here is the order:
    
     Melee, Ranged, Will, Melee, Will, Ranged, Melee, Will, Ranged, Melee, Melee
    
    The last Melee is up close to the lightning beams and can be tricky to reach
    in time - again, be patient and anticipate this. When the beams are down, go
    pull the lever. Return to the central chamber and cross to the opposite stairs
    to reach a cave with four switches. If you hit the switches for a bit you can
    get all four electricity beams turned off. Walk forward and pull the lever.
    Before you leave, break the ice on the right hand side and vault down. Pull a
    lever here, then climb up the ladder. Break the ice and look to your left to
    see (Knothole Island, Vol II). Return to the main chamber. The chest in the
    far corner contains a (Perfect Skin Augment). Pull the lever in the center of
    the room. Now that all three blocks are melted, proceed to collect items from
    the chests (Bandit Gloves), (Knothole Knight Trousers), and make your way to a
    fiery cave. Vault down and defeat your enemies, then vault down once more. If
    you like there is a path along the cave wall to your right leading to a chest
    (Feeble Scar Vanishing Potion). Use the Sun Totem to be warped out.
    -
    Knothole Island:
    Make your way back and look for (Knothole Island, Vol VII) next to the large
    ruined tower along the way. When you pass under the wooden boardwalk, turn to
    your left to find (Knothole Island, Vol VI) under the Warrior's Rest House.
    Cross the boardwalk and go back up the trail as if you were returning to the
    Ice Shrine and vault down. Head to your left and search in the trees near the
    cliff edge to find (Knothole Island, Vol V). Follow the trail to the small
    ruins and vault down to the graveyard. Turn left and return to the Chieftain.
    Buy Greta's Cosmetics now that it is available, then explore the far end of
    the graveyard overlooking the docks to find (Knothole Island, Vol VIII).
    Return to the mainland to trigger the next Knothole Island quest.

    Go to see the Chieftain again. Follow the trail to dig up the (Sun Key). Then
    proceed to that stone tower you passed by during the ice quest; this is the
    Sun Shrine. Unlock the door and enter.
    -
    Sun Shrine:
    Head down the spiral steps and forward to a round chamber with a shoot switch.
    Ranged attack the switch, then turn to your right - the switch will dance
    around a while and then settle in front of you. Melee the switch and it will
    cross the room and unlock a door to an expression statue. Use the chicken
    expression to reveal another shoot switch. Shoot, chase, Melee to reveal yet
    another expression statue. Use the laugh expression to reveal another switch.
    This time Will, Melee, Ranged attack the switch to unlock the third door. Head
    through the large sand and beetle filled cavern to find a little stream and
    pick up a (Flame's Curse Augment) in a chest near a doorway. Slowly enter the
    room, ready to back off when spikes jump up and hit the melee switch. The orb
    flies back into the tunnel and becomes a ranged attack switch. Shoot it and
    then turn back to the spiked room. The orb flies back in here to be shot again
    two more times - success removes the spikes. Cross the chamber and ascend the
    ramp. Ranged, Will, Melee the switch orb to unlock the next door. Pass through
    to a large Hobbe hideout area with a chest (Knothole Knight Shirt) and a lever
    to pull. Head through the now opened gate to find a small round chamber with a
    breakable wall (Knothole Island, Vol III) next to a floor switch. Make your
    way up the winding path, swim across the water, and look up the steps. At the
    top is a floor switch, with a gout of flame that will fire down onto it, so be
    careful. Walk across it to reveal a melee switch and a lever. Pull the lever,
    shoot the switch and weave past the flame gouts to a gate on the right. Pull
    the lever in here to turn off the flames. Walk across the floor switch to open
    the door at the end of the hallway. Check the chest on the left for a pair of
    (Knothole Knight Gauntlets) on your way through. Defeat your foes and use the
    Storm Totem to be transported out.

    Knothole Island:
    Follow the path until you see a small round puddle to your left. Climb behind
    the ruined column to find (Knothole Island, Vol IX). Continue on the path and
    dive into town. You can now buy the Knothole Stonecutter shop on your right.
    Return to the Chieftain. Leave the island to trigger the next quest.

    is a dive spot (Thug Augment) along the way. Climb the path and dig up the
    (Storm Key). Follow the trail, swimming and up the path, then swimming to the
    door to the Storm Shrine. Unlock the door and enter.
    -
    Storm Shrine:
    Proceed until you reach a foggy cave with a statue of a lady holding out a
    book - she is pointing to (Knothole Island, Vol IV) on the other side. Press
    on and cross the stone bridge until you reach a melee switch orb. Strike it,
    then follow to a small temple. Strike it again, and follow it across to the
    second small temple. Collect the (Knothole Knight Armour) from the chest and
    strike the flit switch, then edge around the outside of the small temple up
    some steps to reach the switch at the end of a walkway. Return to the area
    where you first found the switch at the base of the steps. Shoot the switch,
    then retrace your steps across the stone bridge to another small temple. Hit
    the switch here, then cross the bridge and ascend the steps to hit the switch
    one final time. Pass through the doors and vault down.
    When you splash down, turn around and swim through a small passage to a dive
    spot (Untapped Potential Augment). Now swim to the steps up into a round room
    with a breakable wall and chest. Proceed up more steps, past a locked gate and
    into a room with a ladder to climb. At the top, melee attack the flit switch
    and vault across to follow it, repeating this pattern until it floats up a
    tube in the ceiling and appears on the ground. Climb back down the ladder and
    strike, then shoot the switch. Follow it back to the gate and pass through.
    Don't miss the chest (Energy Drain Augment) on your way to a room with another
    ladder to climb. Cross past the air flows to a room with a flit switch above
    some pipes. This is a bit tricky; move next to the locked door to make it a
    bit easier. The order is:
     
     Ranged, Will, Ranged, Ranged, Will
     
    Enter the unlocked door and pull the lever. Return to the now accessible side
    passage to find a room with flit switch orbs popping into view. Use Ranged and
    Will strikes until the door opens. Enter the passage and pull the lever. The
    other side passage is now accessible. Climb the steps, nabbing the chest along
    the way (Knothole Knight Helmet). Proceed into a huge chamber - show no mercy.
    Push on to find and use the Ice Totem.

    Knothole Island:
    Take care of your welcoming committee, then look behind a nearby boulder to
    find the last book (Knothole Island, Vol X). These are a fun read in your

    hired hands. This choice opens up a follow-up quest with Giles' son called
    "The Blind Date", after which you may buy Giles' farm house. Buying the house
    also gets you the key to Giles' Cellar, where (The Enforcer) and (Silver
    Key<34>) are found. His 5 star Brightwood Farm rents out for a large income
    boost.

    ..............................................................................
    This is the Evil choice, as removing Giles allows the bandits to have total
    control of the region. Unfortunately, this means no awesome farm house to buy
    and no follow up quests. Still, it's fun to kill tons of bandits, and you get
    early access to (The Enforcer) and (Silver Key<34>) in Giles' Cellar.

    If you do not give Barnum a loan, Westcliff will remain as you first find it.
    With the loan money, Barnum is able to turn Westcliff into a town with shops,
    some caravan wagons, and pay you back 15,000g. The real win here is the shops
    which can now be purchased to generate higher income, especially the pub and
    the weaponsmith.

    If you defend the Temple of the Light and defeat Cornelius Grim, the cult of
    shadows dissolves, and the Temple of Light flourishes. You will be able to
    purchase the Temple of Light after returning from the Spire. It is expensive
    but generates high income. Several new homes will be built and put up for sale
    in Oakfield as well. The Temple of Shadow will be deserted.

    If you slaughter the residents of Oakfield, the Temple of Shadows flourishes.
    You will be able to purchase the Temple of Shadows after returning from the
    Spire. It is expensive but generates high income. The Temple of Light closes
    down. No additional homes are built in Oakfield.

    (D) Power Gaming Tips                                                 {PGTIPS}
    =============================================================================|
    
    GOLD:
    The best way to earn a fortune in this game is by saving up and buying all of
    the businesses, then homes. You will get money every five minutes and not have
    to spend time grinding the jobs for money, except early on to buy businesses.
    The bartending job has the highest potential income rate of the labor tasks.
    Having your dog as highly ranked in treasure hunting as possible helps also.
    Remember to praise your dog every few times he finds things, or he might not
    bark to help you until after you make him happy again.
    
    EXPERIENCE:
    One easily overlooked way of quickly earning experience points is by buying
    potions. I can't recommend enough buying the Potions In Motion store for this
    reason. With your owner discount and a big enough landlord income, you will be
    able to have maximum abilities well before you finish all of the quests.
    Using a discipline augment and running through the Crucible many times is also
    a fun way to earn experience. The Fable II Pub Games can reward you with the
    (Championship Pistol) which has a built in discipline augment that really is a
    big help because you can get it with a new character as soon as you reach the
    pub in Bowerstone Market.
    
    COMBAT:
    First of all, you should know that it is entirely possible to play your hero
    as a specialist, using only melee or ranged or spells. Every hero should take
    Toughness for the health bar boost. I also highly recommend Roll for anyone.
    Earning Physique cranks up your melee damage and pumps you up - sexy for some,
    not necessarily for all.
    
    Melee Combat:
    Try out different melee weapons. In the end game, a Master version of your
    favorite weapon type, slotted with two of your favorite augments, will be more
    fun than any Legendary melee weapon. With regard to abilities - I find that
    Blocking, Flourishes, and Chain Attacks are always useful, while the controls
    make Counters occur very rarely in practice.
    
    Ranged Combat:
    Try out different guns. Just as with melee weapons, you will find that your
    custom-augmented Master firearm can be more fun than the Legendary weapons.
    I find that using "Dextrous Style 4: Sub-Targeting" to shoot enemies in the
    head is both fun and efficient. Together with a high Speed rating, you can
    kill a Balverine with headshots before it can close to melee range. Seriously.
    
    Spell Combat:
    Every spell can be effective and entertaining, and you should really try
    them all out for yourself. I prefer Raise Dead, Time Control, and Inferno.
    - Shock : This spell damages and also stuns enemies, which reduces incoming
      attacks as a bonus to the lethal light show.
    - Time Control : I routinely use time control in levels 1 and 3, because
      casting these in this order will buy you time to cast a level 5. Try using
      the spell in its targeted mode for interesting melee attacks as well.
    - Inferno : I use level 5 Inferno most often because of its nice radius and
      high damage output. This spell works well in its targeted mode as well.
    - Blades : This spell will home in on its targets and is brutal as a targeted
      attack.
    - Vortex : This spell is a hybrid of damage and aggro management and is best
      applied when allied with another player or story character.
    - Chaos : This spell is an amusing aggro management tool that can turn enemies
      against each other. However, the duration is short, thus requiring constant
      re-application in combat.
    - Force Push : This spell is useful for pushing enemies off of ledges quickly.
    - Raise Dead : I recommend this spell in slots 1, 2 or 4 as a fantastic aggro
      redirection spell. Cast early in combat and your enemies will focus on your
      summoned allies instead of you. Cast after killing some enemies and you will
      raise the fallen foes which are more powerful. This spell does not earn you
      evil points, so don't hesitate to try it out on a good hero character.

    (M) Demon Door Checklist                                              {DMDLST}
    =============================================================================|
    
    Think of each Demon Door as a mini-game/puzzle. They contain fixed rewards in
    chests in the dimensions that they reveal when opened. The order in which you
    encounter the 9 doors is not typically the order that you will be able to open
    them in. Opening ALL of the doors is a lot of work, and in my opinion, was not
    worth the effort. Look at the rewards and what is required for each door, and
    decide for yourself.
    
    There is no achievement associated with the Demon Doors.
    
    [ ] <01> Bower Lake
        UNLOCK: Perform these expressions in this order:
        Laugh, Fart, Point and Laugh, Middle Finger, Vulgar Thrust, Growl,

    The Legendary Weapons are unique weapons with stats that vary from their more
