Anybody if you can pause it like that in the middle of combat though?
Pressing the Start button during an in-game cutscene will bring up a traditional menu (the same Options menu that you use until you can access the Sanctuary). During a pre-rendered cutscene, pressing Start brings up a menu that asks if you want to skip the remainder. Doing so while in combat takes you to the Sanctuary.

Re: Fable 3

I don't know if there are big boss fights but could I stop playing and save in the middle of such a fight and not lose progress?

Re: Fable 3

I'm not sure if it lets you save in combat, but you could try it?

I'm sure most people are interested in breakout out of combat because they want to get the "beat the game without dying" achievement.

Re: Fable 3

I'm in a big battle with some Hobbes right now but can access the Sanctuary and save. Not sure if it qualifies as a boss battle, though.

Edit: Went into the Road to Rule after defeating the Hobbes, so I imagine it does count as a boss battle. More importantly, this section of the Road to Rule allowed me to finally purchase the Entrepreneur Pack so that I can start buying businesses! Rich revolutionary, here I come...

Re: Fable 3

I finished the "Reliquary" stage. My next question is, what's up with these random villager fetch quests? You do some nice things in front of them (with only a good or bad option versus the 20 options you had in #2) then you have to run around for 5-10 minutes just to find a dig spot. That's pretty damn tedious. Is this completely optional? How much of a benefit is this to me? Can you 'load' several of these missions at once so you only have to run out there once? Where would you toggle between missions?

Re: Fable 3

I am a little disappointed in the limited interaction options, particularly when my male Hero ends up dancing in the middle of the street with a male villager. If the villager's quest is selected as your primary, it shouldn't be too difficult to find the dig spot by following the "breadcrumb" trail to the general area then following your dog to the specific spot. As far as I'm aware, you can only have one quest toggled as primary at a time; to change quests, go to the Sanctuary, then the map table, and press Y for the quest list. Villager quests are optional but important because you receive differing amounts of Guild Seals from each one, allowing you to purchase upgrades (weapons, spells, etc.) on the Road to Rule.

Re: Fable 3

Yeah, I just follow the trail, but it's still an annoyingly long time for very little payoff. The manual said RT shows how many seals you'd get from people but all I see is the seal image appear over their head identically; does that mean they're all one seal or am I supposed to be seeing a number?

Re: Fable 3

When you press RT, you'll see their traits along with a little seal icon in the bottom right corner. That's what they're referring to.

Oh yeah, I also have way too much money so if you're online and would like some, give me a shout.

Re: Fable 3

I don't have XBL but thanks! Speaking of money, I assume I should repeat the #2 strategy of buy all available property as you go so you slowly make more and more rent every time ending up insanely rich? I'm trying to play as a good character though, that's not "evil" is it?

Re: Fable 3

^ I don't think so, not as long as you keep the rent at a reasonable level anyway.

I'm trying to get some money to buy more property, last night I was baking cakes and playing the lute...

I much preferred pouring pints.

Re: Fable 3

The one thing I found really tedious in #2 was doing the jobs. All I've done is pie making so far in #3 and it's still tedious. I'd much rather be off fighting people.

So I bought the shock spell, but where do you switch it? In the weapon room? I'd still rather just have a normal menu...

Re: Fable 3

Some things have become a bit more complicated, thanks to this Sanctuary room. I don't like it much.

That's what I've been doing, buying houses and keeping the rent at "Normal" level so as not to appear to be an "evil" landlord. Now that I have the Entrepreneur Pack, I'm going to start buying businesses later today. "Rich," depending on how one defines it , might take a little bit of time but so far I've had plenty of money just through the few caravans/houses that I rent out. One thing that I think probably impacts how much rent you receive, though, other than the "lowest, low, normal, high, highest" levels, is that Fable III has introduced Housing Conditions to the series. For example, most of the caravans in the dweller camp are in terrible shape (I bought one at 0%!), so I've been repairing each house I buy and natural wear-and-tear seems to be in play because I repaired a couple of houses in Brightwall Village that were down from 100% after repair to 98% the next time I went to Brightwall.

You can change spell gauntlets in the Armory section of the Sanctuary hub. Jasper should have communicated with you after that purchase to return to the Sanctuary so that he could show you.

Hunh, I'm pretty sure he did not!

I got my first actual amount of money. I grabbed a runaway prisoner in ?Brightwood? and the guard gave me a whopping 1,000! Woo!
