Fable 4, Democracy will come to Albion because of Commander's Milton's influence on the Hero of BrightwallWhile Milton and his mentor may have been extremists, the Hero realizes they still had a point. He/She shall, during their reign, do away with the Monarchy system to make sure no one person has the power to turn into a despot if they go evil and setup either a democracy or a republic more in line with Milton and General Turner's vision of the people receiving representation and a say in their country. Fable 4 will take place in an Albion where the new form of government has already been running for a while.
Scythe is the ArchonThis is borderline Captain Obvious, but should probably be stated anyway since its not been officially declared.. In the side material released by Lionhead, the 'Tales of Albion' refers to Archon's last days, how, dismayed with his children's actions, he clothed himself in gold armour and a blue cloak, and vanished without a trace. Then, some years later, Scythe appears in the world dressed in, you guessed it, gold armour, wrapped in a blue cloak.
The Hero of Oakdale save-scummed killing Theresa and getting the Sword of Aeons, and then reversed it.In the original Fable; one could get the Sword of Aeons by Character Saving but not Game Saving. Then one could redo the mission and destroy the Sword of Aeons...with the Sword of Aeons copy that you have. This is not Gameplay and Story Segregation. Save Scumming was an actual spell the Hero of Oakdale could do. And he did "temporarily" kill his sister for the sword. However, the Sword of Aeons was too important; and the Timeline corrected itself, (except for one stain-glass window Theresa commissioned) and turned the displaced "sword energy" into Avo's Tear. (This displaced energy also depowered the Sword of Aeons in any timelines the hero chose to kill Teresa permanently, hence it being less powerful in the Lost Chapters.)
Theresa is responsible for everything in Fable 2It was all a Gambit Roulette engineered in order for her to gain the Spire. Think about it, Lucien looses his wife and child, then suddenly finds out not only about the spire, but also about three heroes he needs, and a fourth who will oppose him. Who did he learn this from? Theresa. Then, some time later, Theresa individually tracks down the fourth hero, and persuades the siblings to gain an ancient artifact. Immediately after gaining this, Lucien somehow knows where they are, and what they've done. Lucien tries to kill the hero, but fails, and Theresa then sends the hero on a massive quest to gather exactly what Lucien needs, only for Lucien to appear again and take the heroes to the Spire. Finally, the Hero somehow procures the same artifact from before, and defeat Lucien. End result, Lucien is gone, and the Hero is indebted to Theresa such that they couldn't possibly deny her the Spire. The only possible explanation is Theresa was manipulating both the hero and Lucien the whole time, not just the Hero.
The Theresa in Fable 2 isn't really TheresaIf you get the book item 'Hero of Oakvale' (the hero from Fable 1), it says only two facts are agreed upon; That the hero defeated jack of Blades twice, and that the hero wielded the Sword of Aeons. This makes killing your sister in Fable 1 canonical, making it impossible for her to be around in Fable 2. My theory is that what guides the Hero in Fable 2 is not Theresa, but the Sword of Aeons itself, taking Theresa's form, perhaps even having absorbed her consciousness in the ritual.
The Theresa in Fable 2 is really Theresa.I pretty much believed this from the beginning. The game makes a point of mentioning that there are immortals among the people as the game is being played, and it has nothing to do with the story. It could be a reference to your ability, in theory, to play the game infinitely after you've finished the main quest, but it seems unlikely as time doesn't seem to pass in a progression of years as it did in Fable, except for the one big chunk in the middle of the game.
The person Rose meets in the Family Ending is...Either Scythe, or Jack of Blades. She says he was scary at first, but doesn't seem so bad. Both have an intimidating appearance, yet both act quite friendly when you first meet them in F1, Jack even more so than Scythe He claims to know her family, Jack is very familiar with the lineage, while Scythe, being the Archon, is her ancestor. She says he looks kind of like a king, and while Archon was a king, Jack certainly acts like one. She says he's very skinny, and wears a hooded robe. Both attributes shared by Scythe and Jack. She also mentions his name is hard to remember. the Archon's original name was William Black, a particularly generic name. Jack is also a generic name, although Jack of Blades is most likley a title. He may have told her his true name, which would be likley bizarre by Albion's standards.
At the end of Fable 1, the Hero puts on Jack's MaskAs mentioned in the previous entry, the only determined factors of the Hero's life is that he beat Jack, and wielded the Sword of Aeons. Therefore, its not entirely impossible that the Hero wore Jack's mask instead of destroying it. Of course, one wonder why Jack isn't reigning over Albion by F2. Perhaps the Hero was simply too strong for Jack to control, but not strong enough to vanquish Jack's mind completely. The Hero makes a deal with Jack, Jack gets the Sword of Aeons, but is cast into another realm. Should someone find this, than Jack is free to try and influence them.
Reaver didn't actually get teleported to Samarkand following your defeat of LucienConsidering all the terrible deeds he's committed, and the fact that he really wasn't much help aside from being necessary for the ritual, it wouldn't be unsurprising if Theresa took punishing him into her own hands, and teleported him to some remote and unknown location, from which he will be unable to return and make his sacrifice to the Shadow Court, thus dooming him to being taken by them himself. Of course, this could just be wishful thinking. But come on, he killed Barnum, dammit!
All of the Above will be true in F3Theresa of Aeons managed to escape Jack's clutches, rendering his powerless in a voidrealm. However, as shown in F1, The Sword of Aeons loses power if its not used. For this, it needed the Spire, to give it full capacity and the capability of wielding itself. Meanwhile, Jack manages to steal Rose's body, which is what the red light was in the ritual circle in Fable 2. He was too late to use her, but if the spire brings her back to life, then suddenly he has the solution to his problem. By manipulating, grooming, and ultimately possessing Rose, he will break free and return to Albion to reign once more. Theresa of Aeons, retaining her gift of foresight, learns of this once its too late to stop Jack's escape. The remnants of Theresa bear a grudge against Jack, and decide to stop him. Rose of Blades needs the Sword of Aeons to regain absolute power, and goes after it. Each is to afraid to confront one another directly, so they decide to manipulate the latest Scion of Archon into doing their bidding. This will he the Hero of Fable 3, and will culminate in the Hero taking the power of Theresa of Aeons, Rose of Blades, both, or neither for themself, and shaping the world from thereon in.
If you choose the Bad ending of the Prologue The Commandant is Derek the GuardAfter Lucien sacks Derek he leaves the town of Bowerstone forever. However we see Lucien again but Derek seems to have magically disappeared, except Lucien being not heartless in the prologue gave Derek a second chance and they went to the Spire together. In Luciens diaries he mentions experimenting on people to make Spire Soldiers (as in the pale guys with trench coats and super strength) before the beginning of the game. We later learn that these experiments were failing when Garth calls the Commandant "a freak, Lucien's failed expirement". So after experimenting on more and more people Lucien finally perfects the way to making Spire Soldiers and forces Derek, for his failure to get back the wanted posters to become the dreaded Commandant of his forces.
Theresa sold out HammerNot at all unrelated with the WMG saying Theresa is behind everything. Imagine this, Lucien has been hunting down the 3 Heroes unimpeded for 10 years between the prologue and the time the Hero gets to Oakvale, yet his minions show up at the Temple of Light on the exact same day that the Hero shows up to recruit Hannah, and only moments after Theresa complains that the girl needs a reason to abandon her vows and fight. So to nail two birds with one stone; getting rid of Hannah's obligations and giving her motivation to fight Lucien, Theresa deliberately allowed the bad guys to know where to find the Hero of Strength. The game never explicitly says she's a nice person. She's not.
The person looking after Rose in the Love ending is the hero from Fable IOkay, here goes: After the events of Fable: TLC, Theresa and the Hero traveled together for a while, until eventually he was mortally wounded by some great evil. Theresa then used her will powers to send him to a worldlet where he could recover. This gave her enough Will XP to get the immortality ability, which explains why she's still around. Unfortunately, getting the Hero out of the worldlet proved harder than sending him there, so Theresa traveled some more, and eventually found information on The Spire. She then manipulated Lucien into rebuilding the spire and the Fable II Hero into killing Lucien afterwards, so she could have the spire, so she can figure out how to harness its power into getting her brother back from the worldlet and giving him immortality as well. Also, Rose finds the Fable I Hero familiar because he's her distant ancestor and looks similar to her father. And she says his name is hard to remember because the Fable I Hero was never given a real name, so its entirely possible his real name is something so nondescript it's easily forgotten. The some sort of king, I have no idea about, maybe after Fable I, the Hero started a kingdom somewhere after fighting off all the monsters there or married some king's daughter as a reward for some quest, who knows?
Heroes cannot be killed, except by another HeroThe Fourth Hero in Fable II cannot be killed by anything. He falls to the ground, then immediately gets back up and continues fighting. The Oakvale Hero had a little more risk (since he could technically die) but since his death was never canon, and after every death you were brought back to just before the mission with all of the experience you had from the quest, we can assume that he could not die either. Also note that every Hero who died within the stories was killed by another Hero. In fact the only canon event that goes against this is the attack on the Heroes guild. (Maybe they no longer count as Heroes if they aren't adventuring enough?)
The Fable 2 protagonist is ImmortalThis would explain why he or she is not affected gameplay wise by the spirits near the end of the game.
The Fable 2 protagonist is DeadBoth the Fable 2 Hero and Rose were killed by a runaway wagon while talking to the lady and the tramp. Notice that nothing overtly magical (The Music Box, for instance) happens to the Fable 2 Hero until after this point in time. The story of Fable 2 is the dying dream of a young child who'd desperately wanted something better.
The Fable 3 protagonist can be the son/daughter of TheresaNote that in Fable 2, it was pretty much stated that only people with the blood of hero's could become hero's. It was also stated that only 4 heros survived, but 3 of them only have a third of the bloodline. That leaves only one person who is able to spread the heroic Blood, otherwise known as the Hero of Bowerstone. But what happens if this hero is gay/lesbian? In that case, there will be a chance of the Hero never fathering children. Which means that the heroic bloodline will never be passed on. Or so it seems. Even assuming that you didn't choose the choice of family, there is actually one other person in the world known to have heroic blood of all 3 kinds. Theresa, and its even possible that shes stronger blood wise then the actual Hero of Bowerstone. She has also shown that shes not afraid to make a direct intervention into things in order to ensure her visions come to pass. So, realising that it might not actually happen otherwise, she gets herself pregnant. After having the baby, she claims to be dying of old age or similar, giving it to her old friend who owes her a favor or two for taking care of them. not to mention helping them get revenge on Lucien. The baby gets raised as the Hero's, with the complete bloodline. In addition to this, since the blood running through the childs veins is Theresa's, it is far more potent, allowing for the wings and other such things.
Reaver is the son of the Hero of Oakvale.He's got heroic blood, he comes from Oakvale, so it seems likely that there's some connection there. Growing up in the shadow of his heroic father gave him Issues, which was why he made his ill-advised deal with the Shadow Court and wound up where he did.
Rose, had she grown up, would have been a will-based hero.She got her ass kicked by a bully and died after one shot in the chest, while your much younger character beat up said bully and survived being shot and falling through a window. Lucien clearly states "you are heroes," meaning both of you, so she must be one. It's just that she's a Glass Cannon mage who hasn't learned to cast spells yet.
Should Rose return for Fable 3 she will be tougher from living with Scythe also she'll be younger then SparrowSince Scythe is a skeletal figure we know rose wont be getting her freak on with Scythe so what else can a powerful warrior and the sister of the greatest hero in Albion since Oakvale do together? How about training! Also when she was ressurected was she resurrected at the age she died at? then she'd be younger then sparrow now.
Peter Molyneux hates familyThis ones simple Fable 1: Theresa has her eyes cut out is found by bandits and is possibly raped by them before becoming Twinblades little servant girl. Your mother, Scarlet Robe, is tortured by jack of blades before she died, and your dad was killed. Fable 2: mom and dads dead. Your sister gets shot in the chest, Lucien kills your wife/husband and kids, and your dog. And if you resurrect your family you dont even get reunited with Rose. Fable 3: You play the younger brother of a new tyrant king and have to dethrone him. Will he be killed? This is a molyneux game after all
Hero blood grows stronger in each new generationWilliam Black needed Jack's sword to beat him eons ago, yet his decendant, the Hero of Oakvale, was able to defeat him (possibly very easy) when Jack had the sword at full power. Then flash-forward to Sparrow, who could have more skill with firearms (headshots and selecting limbs, even able to shoot weapons from enemies' hands, as well as being unable to die. Next, in Fable III, the Prince/Princss is able to combine two spells with spell weaving, and is able to morph their body and even weapons depending on choices and alignment. Assuming this isn't just a gameplay mechanic, and everyone generation is meant to be stronger and more powerful, it could be that the Hero blood gets stronger over time, instead of being diluted as most people believe.
Theresa created the Darkness. Spoilerific, read at your own risk.
The entirety of the Fable-verse is really Theresa's PTSD-induced hallucinations.Because why not.
The pie lady is an extremely wealthy pervert who gets her jollies from watching people put the top crusts on pies.You're certainly not making thousands of gold from the sale of the pies. And there's certainly nothing else that could explain why she apparently just stands there and watches you work.
Reaver made another Deal with the Devil 5 years before Fable IIIHe sacrificed Albion and Aurora to the Shadow Court to make Reaver Industries a Mega Corp.. The Crawler is an agent of the Shadow Court whose purpose is to kill sacrifices. No real evidence for this except that it sounds like something that Reaver would do.
The Crawler is a member of the Court, possibly even Jack of Blades himself.Both the Court and The Crawler come from The Void, they have similar goals in mind, ie enslaving and/or destroying Albion, they share a similar voice, and both have the ability, and apparently require the ability, to possess people.
The members of the Court were actually aliens.The "Void" that they come from could just be outer space. I don't think anyone in Albion could tell the difference between going to another dimension and going to an alien planet/spaceship or whatever.
Logan planned the Fable 3 revolution.The man looks way too happy when you and Walter break down his door and I instantly went 'Hang on a minute . . .'. This is the supposedly all evil tyrant of Albion and his reaction to his brother/sister most probably coming to kill him is to sheath his sword? He defeated - or at least survived - the Crawler. He may not be a Hero but he must be pretty impressive and almost definitely able to match Walter. He knows he isn't a hero but Theresa tells the Hero of Bowerstone that their child will fulfill their destiny in the fate of Aurora and Albion. Even if that's ALL Logan knew its very possible that he was pretty positive that he knew the Prince/Princess was a Hero even before Walter. When you escape the castle he doesn't look very hard to find you even though as a tyrant he ought to be murdering anyone that supports you. Even before then the Hero doesn't show much of an inclination towards well anything regarding going against Logan even though they're clearly getting information from outside the castle. The speech Walter was so impressed by was entirely Elliot/Elise's idea so when Logan says he's not going to treat you like a child anymore is literally to kick you up the back end so that you hate him which means you leave the castle with Walter. You come back win against his army with an army of mainly civilians - so now there's two armies that can face the Darkness - gold to help support the kingdom, experience of life outside the castle, experience as a Hero and with the support of the people of Albion. If you kill him he dies. If you pardon him he slips away, fights the Crawler with the aid of the army he helped raise and apparently leaves Albion. Not the actions of a power mad tyrant or even anyone that wants a place in court. Albion survives and his parent's family rules the kingdom - as far as Logan's concerned he wins.
Walter is scheming gitFrom what I can tell he has no plans to leave with the Prince/Princess until after he finds out they're a Hero and a perfect flocking point for a rebellion. When you go to the Hero of Bowerstone's burial cave thing he says he promised to bring you here when you were old enough and strong enough - he had to wait until you were at least 17 if not older to do that? He may as well say he promised to bring you there if you were a Hero unlike your brother.
Fable 4 will be set in Samarkand.Think about it: Why would Lionhead decide to create from scratch another country, Aurora, to help out the Hero in Fable 3, when he could have sent us to Samarkand, or to the Northern lands where Hammer went, two places that players would love to see included in the games? Well, to make them the main regions of the next game(s)! Considering that pretty soon, Albion will end up in the modern age or at least WW1 era technology if we even just jump 50 years each games, a logical solution would be to set them somewhere else.
All of this is a story Theresa is telling to someone. Start a new charater in Fable II and you'll hear her say: "And who is the hero of our tale?" Would explain why you can't die in Fable II, because that's not what happen in her tale!
The Rebellious Chicken is a Hero.If the black chicken you see running out of the kitchen and trying to fly is the Rebellious Chicken, then it could possibly have the will power to survive even death. Plus, getting caught in that furnace in the intro really should have killed it.
Theresa wanting the Prince/Princess on the throne has absolutely nothing to do with their leadership.After all, she still praises you if you do absolutely everything Logan would have. When she says you're the only one capable of defeating the Crawler, she really does mean that you're the only one physically capable of defeating it and that's all. You have at least two things Logan doesn't - one, superpowers and so greater fighting capabilities and indestructibility, and two, Walter - if it weren't for his relationship with the Hero, the Crawler might not have made itself vulnerable. As for her involvement in the coup and whatnot, either it was just to get Logan out of the way, to play along, a roundabout way of sending you to Aurora at least once first, any combination of the above, and/or more.
Lionhead is building up to something with Reaver.Seriously, looking at his complete Karma Houdini nature, it's most likely that in a future game (maybe Fable 4) the player gets the choice to either obliterate or humiliate him in an epic manner, or further reward and perpetuate his Jerk Ass legacy.
Fable 4 will take place in Aurora and Albion about 50 years after the events of Fable 3, and will include a western scenario and an Albion similar to the version in the previous game. The character will be the hero in Fable 3's grandson/daughter.Think about it. It could be similar in scenario to Red Dead Redemption, offering a desert filled with cowboys born in Albion and settling in new land, and Albion could be given an Old West theme as well, including Paddle steamers and stagecoaches to easily get around the various regions. The player could, based on his/her decisions, rise to the rank of a Governer to Bowerstone, or sink low to become the most notorious bandit in Albion and Aurora.
Reaver planned on destroying the Crawler all alongTying into to Guess above (that the Crawler was an agent of the Shadow Court), Reaver traded all the people of Albion for true immortality and the Court agreed, planning on sending the Crawler to take the people. However, Reaver sided with the King of Albion (both Logan and The Hero) to both give them the financial aide they'd need to defeat the Crawler, increase his own wealth through Reaver Industries AND get toll free immortality by destroying the Shadow Court.
Heroes are in some way related to the Time Lords and the Sanctuary is your TARDISWhile Heroes, as a rule, do not need intelligence, their enhanced abilities and sparsity makes the link at least possible. The Sanctuary that you utilise in Fable 3 is, in fact, your personal TARDIS. The main room has a primitive console in the middle (the giant map) that lets you transport anywhere in the world. It has several rooms for something that initially seems so small, and the dressing room even reminds this troper of the study in one of the recent 11th Doctor adventure game set exclusively in the TARDIS. As far as the player is concerned also, you can cary a large amount of equipment, indicating your pockets are bigger on the inside.
Rose's wish of living in a castle did come true, but not like how she wanted.
Theresa is trying to shape the Hero of Bowerstone into the first hero... by killing their familyTheresa wants the Hero of Bowerstone to succeed, she really does. However, one of the greatest heroes of all-time was the Hero of Oakvale, who started out his journey with... you guessed it, dead (or so believed) family. Being the sister to the first Hero also gives her a slight bias towards him. Thus she tries to shape the second hero into the first by killing their family when all she really needs to do is sit down, and have a nice chat and go "Dude, you should totally become a kickass Hero". Similar to Sins of Our Fathers, in an odd way. Very tragic, really.
Theresa took control of The Spire as a backup plan in case The Crawler succeeded in destroying AlbionThe Spire's purpose is to remake Albion into whatever its owner wishes. What better reason to use it than reversing Albion becoming a giant puddle of darkness? Luckily, Plan A (you) kept that from being necessary.
Jack of Blades and the Crawler are one and the same.Except after being killed so many times, he's dropped the Faux Affably Evil and simply gone Ax-Crazy.
The Crawler was LucienAt the climax of Fable 2, Sparrow sends Lucien to his death, blasting him from the top of the Spire. Into the depths. Into the darkness. Lucien, however, survived his fall. His chance of mending his misfortune gone, his only hope stolen from him, he makes his wish. If he cannot reshape the world into something more pleasing, more just, then he will see it consumed by the darkness that surrounds him, within and without. He makes his wish... and The Crawler is born.
The Hero of Brightwall isn't actually a natural-born heroCompared to the previous heroes of the bloodline, the protagonist of Fable 3 is more than a little strange; you need special gauntlets to use magic powers, you don't get the same sort of Will lines even when you do, you 'automatically' absorb experience orbs (which are all red - the defacto colour for Will energy since Fable 2) and you have to get all of your upgrades from a dream-like Road to Rule which looks like it could definitely be inside of the Spire. You draw your powers from the people you ally with and rule over rather than through your own use of them, and at the end, Theresa 'bestows' your final form upon you, which only shows up when you're executing special moves or trying to look that way on purpose, whereas previous heroes just gradually got their shifts in appearance. My theory is that the Prince/Princess was originally in the same boat as Logan; child of a Hero, with Heroic blood in their veins, but no actual manifestation of said blood. Only Theresa needed a Hero to fight the Crawler, or else Albion was boned. So she used the Spire to bestow Hero powers on the younger royal sibling, since Logan was already well-established as an ordinary dude and possibly unsuitable to her purposes for other reasons. Alternately, the Prince/Princess is a Hero, but not as diverse of a one as Sparrow had been. Rather than having access to all three powers, you're really just a Strength-based Hero. Hence your being able to break Walter's sword in practice, but not being able to use magic on your own. Theresa used the Spire to augment your abilities to give you an edge.
Percival the Dragon from Fable:Edge of the world is the Knight of Blades.Percival is the name of a knight and Jack of Blades did take the form of a dragon so why wouldn't the Knight of Blades?
Going off of the above: Fable 4 will have you choose between Percival(Good) and The Jack of Blades(evil).Of course it turns out that Percival is The Knight of Blades and thus on the the same side as The Jack of Blades and you have to fight both at the end of Fable 4.
Taking the above into account: The Corrupter is the penultimate boss of Fable 4As The Man behind Man for The Crawler, Bigger Bad of Fable 2 and 3 plus Big Bad of The Journey who does not die during any of those 3 games unlike his lieutenant(The Crawler) and the evil half of William Black AKA Scythe he'll be treated as the main villain and both The Jack of Blades and Percival(who'll be revealed to be The Knight of Blades) will backstab the hero after The Corrupter is dead and become the Final Boss.
Logan is son of...
Logan was killed by Lucien.Logan was born during the events of the second game and was killed by Lucien.
The guards in Oakvale in the beginning of Fable TLC were actually Bargate Prison GuardsNow, obviously this is a bit of a stretch, but upon playing Fable Anniversary, I noticed there were no guards laying among the pile of bodies in the raid on Oakvale. Given that Jack of Blades seemed to know where to go when looking for Scarlet Robe, Theresa, and the Hero of Oakvale, it is entirely possible that Jack had planted several guards from Bargate Prison into Oakvale as a means of searching for those of the Archon Bloodline.
