Using it to wish for a life in the castle, they quickly find themselves brought before it's current owner Lord Lucien himself. Just when it seems their dreams are coming true Lucien suddenly turns his gun on the duo, believing one of them is the hero destined to stand in his way. He coldy kills Rose and proceeds to shoot her sibling out of the castle tower to their [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat apparent doom]].

But heroes prove [[MadeOfIron hard to kill]] and the youngster survives. The child grows to adulthood armed with a new purpose in life - stopping Lucien and saving Albion from certain destruction.

* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Like in ''VideoGame/FableI'', the main character is always either referred to as "Hero" or whatever title they currently have. Rose refers to the Hero by their nickname "Sparrow", which becomes the default title.

* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: You'll only be let into the Temple of Shadows if you eat several crunchy chicks. While they are alive. With the not-so-evil guy commenting on how disgusting and evil the act is. Saying thing like 'That one was still moving' and 'The most anyone got up to was two' and... 'scuse me...

** To a lesser extent, this applies to most ranged weapons that have slow attack speeds or immensely draconic reload time. Time Control and Raise Dead can be useful for combatting this. However, this is averted by one particular gun, which is basically a machine gun; just press the shoot button really fast.

* SkeletonGovernment: Taken to extremes - the government of Albion seems to consist entirely of the police, apparently organized and commanded by no one. Prior to the beginning of the game the government was slightly larger - namely, it consisted of the police and Lord Lucien. The player character can actually declare themselves absolute dictator of the country by virtue of simply ''buying all the property in Albion'', as there's no actual government to dispute that claim (canonically, this is actually what happens).

* TooKinkyToTorture: It's incredibly difficult to coerce kinky or aggresion-loving villagers into giving you discounts because using scary expressions on them [[NightmareFetishist turns them on]]. Even if you're a 7 foot, musclebound demon who strikes terror and fear into everyone who sees them... in fact, that just makes it worse.

* UnwantedAssistence: In the first game, the Guildmaster was prone to contacting you through the guild seal to comment on your health state or your combat multiplier or various other things. This isn't just a gameplay mechanic, but something he's canonically doing, as some of the loading screens mention a rumor that the Guild Master was eventually found dead with the words "Your health is low" carved into his forehead.
* VideoGameCaringPotential: Especially regarding your dog and your family (or families). Which gives the player [[spoiler: real motivation to kill the game's BigBad because he [[PlayerPunch ''murders'' your spouse(s) AND children near the end of the game.]] And if that wasn't enough, he [[ShootTheDog shoots your dog]] because said dog [[TakingTheBullet takes the bullet for you]]]].

* UsefulNotes/{{Romani}}: The stereotype is subverted; though the hero(ine) is raised in a Gypsy caravan, they are more or less normal people making a decent living. Theresa fits the stereotype, though she isn't one.

The story begins on a cold evening in Bowerstone. The young "[[PlayerCharacter Sparrow]]" and his/her older sister, Rose, are doing their best to get by on the streets [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor dreaming of a life]] in Castle Fairfax. Their day is interrupted by a travelling salesman claiming to be selling all manner of magical items. Despite Rose's cynicism, a mysterious woman named [[BlindSeer Theresa]] approaches them, convincing them that the musical box is in fact genuine. The two set about raising the coin and purchasing the [[MacGuffin musical box]].

* {{Foreshadowing}}: During the intro, a sparrow takes a dump on the main character just before the action starts. While his/her sister Rose seems to think that it may be a sign of good luck, the character's life is going to take a big dump on him/her with the events that follow.

* MadnessMantra: If the player opens the Wrathmarsh Demon Door and proceeds to the cottage's second floor, (s)he will be greeted by a corpse surrounded by several suits of armor. Nearby there is a letter from the cottage owner Terry Cotter that ends with "They watch over me" repeated over and over.

* MuggingTheMonster: The Hero will still get attacked by random bandit gangs even if they're the most feared and hated being in the history of Albion with a kill count in the tens of thousands - often while s/he is openly carrying a pair of deadly-looking weapons, bulging with more muscles than the Incredible Hulk, and sporting ''glowing red eyes and devil horns''.

* WhatTheHellHero: A minor example when Theresa gives you a lesson about how you murdered a group of bandits who had just as many life experiences and memories as you did. Subverted seconds later when she reassures you that the world is better off with the bandits dead.

** A rather explicit one to Series/{{Buffy|the Vampire Slayer}}. One character, Giles, has a son named Rupert and a wife named Jenny. He offers a quest to kill a bandit, Ripper. It's almost a LampshadeHanging.
