Re: Fable 3

^ Cool, thanks. While I'm relieved this countdown clock only applies when you complete story missions, on the other hand it's a little lame that they give you this ticking clock but you can continue to play the game forever if you want to

Was anyone else pissed off and disappointed you don't actually fight Logan? I was looking forward to a big boss battle! They did the same thing at the end of the last game which pissed me off even more.

Does anyone know if there's a paragon way to complete the "murder this person for me" missions? I haven't done them because I don't want dark side points.

BTW if people haven't figured out how to unlock Driftwood (the city in the bay in the lower right corner of the map), go to the city where Reaver's Mansion is, donate money to fix the bridge, then come back later cross the bridge and it leads to there.

Anyone know how to unlock that city in the upper left corner of the map?

What do people think about the game length? The actual story missions don't seem that long at all making the game feel short. After you become Monarch there's only three actual story missions left according to the walkthrough I just looked at! But of course there's endless side stuff to do, the question is it worth the time

Re: Fable 3

I was disappointed that you don't get to fight Logan, but I was more disappointed by the shortness of the Monarch portion of the game compared to the revolutionary part of the story. I just finished the game, and I feel a little cheated that I wasn't King before the final battle for a longer period of time. I'd be more annoyed if I didn't enjoy the charms of this franchise as much as I do.

There's not a paragon way to complete the murder missions. As for that city you asked about (the one north of Millfields, correct?), I have no idea.

Edited to add: I'm in Driftwood right now, and noticed that the Spire from Fable II is visible! Very nice.

Re: Fable 3

I was hoping that's what that was. Which reminds me, I haven't finished 3 yet, but I'm disappointed that the ending of 2 (where Teresa takes possession of the Spire ominously) didn't factor into this story.

Re: Fable 3

I really don't like what Bowerstone has become... yuk. I guess that's what you call "progress".

Re: Fable 3

Question, will I miss out on alot if I haven't beaten Fable 1 and 2 yet? I have both games but seeing as how I also own 3 (I wonder how I pulled that off ), I want to know if I can just jump into 3.

Re: Fable 3

You'll miss some references, but it seems like the game mostly stands alone.

Re: Fable 3

They take place in the same world but the stories have nothing to do with each other. You're the child of the Hero of Fable 2 but that's it. And there's a mysterious blind woman who's the narrator and was apparently in all three games (I've only played 2 and 3).

Re: Fable 3

^ Theresa (the blind seer) was the sister of the Hero of Oakvale, who was believed killed during an attack on their village in the early stages of Fable I. I think my favorite bit of Fable II was re-visiting Oakvale, in fact, though it was rather sad since by that time (thanks to Reaver, the bastard) the village has been subsumed by the Wraithmarsh. Based on the letter Reaver leaves in the Bowerstone Castle at the end of Fable III, I'm anticipating that a future piece of DLC will feature both his return as well as that of Oakvale.

Re: Fable 3

I only have a couple more expensive buildings to buy and then I will own EVERYTHING Then, I can finally stop spending my money on buildings and watch as it rapidly accumulates! Seems like playing the paragon side takes a lot longer since you have to make all this damn money yourself. I did the foreign land diamond mission, so I think I only have two major missions left in the game.

Re: Fable 3

I seem to have hit a game breaking bug... which I guess is fine since I wanted to take a break from playing anyway. It's rather unfortunate though, but here's my advice.

If you join someone's game and see that you suddenly have a few hundred extra seals - just turn off your system before it saves. If you don't, you won't be able to earn seals in combat or via expressions ever again.

Re: Fable 3

I maybe imagining this, but if you travel to the foreign country, I think that counts as extra clock time and gives you a couple rent payments all at once.

Re: Fable 3

Ugh, I'm sick of wasting time while I try to make money. I only have a couple royal decisions left before the ending according to my walkthrough. I own all the property in the map and now I'm just waiting to slowly earn enough cash.

What happens if I do the final stage without enough money? People just die? I don't think I care anymore

Re: Fable 3

Lots and lots of dead bodies all over Bowerstone, and probably not as many soldiers to fight the shadows as there would be if you had more money. There are still dead bodies in many areas of Bowerstone (and dead guards all over my freaking castle!) after the final cutscenes in my game.

Re: Fable 3

So I found the "secret" of making money. Turn your game and then just let it sit there for hours once you've bought all the property I've got 5 million now!
