Fable III Walkthrough

Updated on October 13, 2012

Welcome to my Fable III Walkthrough

Are you looking for a comprehensive Fable III walkthrough? Maybe you need some help unlocking some of this Xbox 360 game's more difficult achievements?

Well you are in luck. I have spent almost 150 hours playing this game hunting down items, keys, gnomes, Auroran flowers and unlocking achievements.

Now I am going to share my knowledge of Fable III with you hoping that it will help some of you get past parts that caused me many frustrations and sleepless night.

Spoiler Alert

This guide contains spoilers. This will be the only warning.

The main part of this guide was written to bring you from point A to point B in the story. It would be as if you simply followed the yellow path.

I do not recommend that you play this way. If you follow the path the entire game you will be missing out on so much of what this game has to offer. You are encouraged to go off the beaten path at all times. You will uncover many quests, chests and dig spots that you would not otherwise find.

Dig spots and regular chests will not be covered in this walkthrough. There are far too many of them and no real way to describe their locations accurately.

Still a work in progress

Chicken Chaser

Reward - 10 seals and a chicken trophy

Speak to Bernard in Brightwall. He will tell you that his chickens have escaped to take over the world. He wants you to capture them as a way to prevent this from happening.

As you leave the pen, you will see two purple flags in front of a stone arch. The first group of chickens is just behind them. Lead them back to the pen. Return through the flags and follow the path down. Take a right at the bridge to find the second group behind the old smokehouse. Lead them back then return to the bridge. Cross the bridge heading towards the town gates. You will find the last group right in front of the statue.

When you return with the final group, Bernard's wife Patsy will come out and say that she was the one that let them out because it is mean to keep them penned. You will be given the choice to save the chickens or kill them.

Missing Play

Reward - 20 seals, The Complete Works of Philipth Morley trophy, and the achievement "Tragical - Comical - Historical"

Speak to Lambert and Pinch outside of Brightwall Academy. The two actors want you to find a play written by Philipth Morley that will satisfy their tragical, comical, and historical needs. They also tell you that they have hired the famous detective Ransom Locke to find it, but that he has gone missing.

Enter Brightwall Academy and go forward down the stairs. Go through the door and continue following the golden path to the glowing book in the right hand corner. After you are pulled through the book, you will find yourself standing beside the missing Ransom Locke. He explains that in order for you to get out, you will have to perform some scenes from previous Philipth Morley plays.

Either choice you make will progress the quest, however, it is best to note that choosing the "good" answer will raise your morale and choosing the "evil" answer will lower your morale. It should also be noted that if you are attempting to get the "You Can't Bring Me Down" achievement, you will not want to die like it is called for in the "script" of the third and final scene.

When you complete the final scene, you will be given the missing play "The Ham Sandwich" and teleported back to Brightwall. Return to Lambert and Pinch to give them the play and earn the achievement "Tragical - Comical - Historical" as well as the Complete Works of Philipth Morley trophy.
