The Question Thread

Hi and welcome to the all new and improved Question Thread. Located on the thread will be FAQ and a place to ask questions when you really need help.

Each topic will have its own subheading to indicate the information contained it in.

To start for any weapon trading/achievements or guide see the sticky posted at the top of the forum. The DLC guide is located also at the top but in a different forum.

FAQ



Gold issues for saving the Kingdom.


What is the countdown progress?
Once you become king, you're given a task, which is to gather a certain amount of money in 365 "days". A "day" consists of a list of things to do; most of them are decisions to make about your kingdom. Every time you complete the list, you move forward in time.

Note that the word "day" is inaccurate here - you can actually spend as many game-hours as you want to complete one "day". I actually raised a couple children while the countdown was still stuck at 365 days left.

Now, "moving forward" in time goes as this. You start with 365 days left. Complete your list of things to do for that "day", and then time will pass... and you will be left with 339 days left. This will unlock another list of things to do. Complete the list, and you'll be suddenly left with 200-something days.

The thing is, once the countdown reaches 121 days left: if you enter the throne room to make your first royal decision, you'll enter an inescapable (and inexplicable) chain of events that will lead to 0 days left and trigger the end of the main quest. If you don't have the requisite amount of money as you enter the throne room, you'll get the bad ending and millions of people will die.

There's absolutely no way to guess that the 121 days left is the last limit where you can turn things around. The list of tasks is pretty mundane, there's no warning, nothing, and the auto-save will trigger as soon as you enter the throne room, with no chance to go back.

What is the point of no return, when I cannot put more money in the sanctuary?
121 days to go is the point of no return. So if you don't have the gold do not progress with the main quest.

My gold is under 6.5million and I want to save my kingdom what can I do?
If you plan on making every good decision you will need 9.3 million.

My days on the loading screen are going down now I am king/queen what do I do?
The days do countdown but will restart once they hit zero if you do not do the main quest.

My gold is way under the required amount, how can I make a few million?
This is a simple process buy all shop no houses. If you buy shops rent will pour in, homes slowly waste away meaning you have to repair them. So avoid houses just buy shops. Leave your Xbox on for a few hours and you should have more than enough gold.

In Game Issue’s

When repairing my houses, one/some of them are mine but I cannot select them with A to repair them. What must I do?
This can happen, instead of repairing them through the Map go to the house itself and interact with the sign outside the door. You should be able to repair it then.

Can't progress during The Game Quest
invite a friend into your game and you should be able to progress with the game.

My trail is gone, and I don’t know where my next quest is!?"
This can be a real pain but most people get this at some point. If you stand still for a few seconds, the trail will appear.

Where do I meet with Elise/Elliot if I save them instead of the people?
Click the link and all the information here.
http://fable.wikia.com/wiki/Elise

I have bought all the property/business in the game, but I am receiving little to no gold. What is wrong?
Once the condition of a house reaches 0%, you will no longer collect rent for that property. You must repair each property individually for a small fee in order to begin collecting rent. Shops have no condition percentage and thus do not need to be repaired.

Why are all civilians gone?
You probably didn’t get enough money to save people so they're dead. After a few in game days/weeks they'll come back.

Can I stop people joining my game at random?
The very right room in the Sanctuary where Items can be bought from Jasper the right of the glowing sphere on the wall. There's an option to set it to invite only. Also view or hide players Orbs.

How can I open this Demon door?
The link below will have all the information you need for all the doors.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...29#post4036129


My Driftwood-achievement ''Island Paradise'' isn't unlocking.
There are two possibilities: first one is that you haven't completed all quests required. There are four, Repair the bridge, Kill all hobbes scattered around the islands, Get a carpenter from Silverpines to go to Driftwood, Escort a man from Bowerstone Market to Driftwood
If you're sure you did all this and you haven't unlocked the achievement yet, try sleeping somewhere. Otherwise, keep playing, it will unlock eventually.

When repairing my houses, one/some of them are mine but I cannot select them with A to repair them. What must I do?
This can happen, instead of repairing them through the Map go to the house itself and interact with the sign outside the door. You should be able to repair it then.

Where do I unlock that door with the special key?? That I bought for 4000 gold?
The key you buy for 4000 gold is used to open a door in the Shifting Sands which leads to a Gold Key. Search Google or YouTube where the door is.

How do I get Skinny/Fat?
To get skinny eat fruit, carrots. To get fat eat pie, beer and meats. To consume these when you buy them it will let you press select or eat.

Family Issues

How do I know my spouse wants to have sex? (Everyone probably knows this but just in case)
If you have been gone for a while and come back they probably want to have sex always, but you can actually check it. Go to the Sanctuary, to the World Map. Select the area your family lives in and target the family house. You'll see the name of your spouse. If the word Amorous (I think it was) is next to your spouse’s name, they want to have some fun.

I completed the game but now my family is nowhere to be found!
Like civilians, your spouse can be the victim of the darkness, so they're probably dead.

I can’t find a certain toy for my offspring?
A way to get it is to kick some civilians out their house and search it. When you're done, place them back. Repeat.

I and my (white) spouse have gotten a black child
it has been confirmed that this is a glitch.

My (adopted) child (ren) s happiness bar(s) won't progress
Either try to do as many nice expressions as possible or give them many gifts. As long as the bar is stuck on Happy, Fine or anything in that direction it's won't be too bad.
If it does bother you, or they're stuck on Hate or something and the above things don't work, try moving them to a better house or raise allowance. If that doesn't work, probably nothing will.

My adopted child hates me
This often happens if you never check how they are. Instead of making up with them, send them back and re-adopt them.

My spouse died and now my children are gone!
If your spouse dies, your children will be brought to the Bowerstone Industrial Orphanage. If you want them back, you need to re-adopt them there, which costs 500 gold even though it's your own child.



The Story Has Been Completed.

Do I have to play Fable 2 to get the hang of the storyline?
No you don't. The only thing you'll see back in Fable 3 is people talking about your Mother/Father and some things your Mother/Father found. Still, Fable 2 is a very good game and if you like Fable 3, you should definitely get Fable 2 too.

So I have/when I have done the game can I still get all the remaining achievements?
Yes like all fable games once you have done the main story you can keep going after the final clip.

I have only 10 Trophies, while there's room for 12. Which ones am I missing?
So far, the following trophies are known.
Guild Seal,Saker's Flag,Simmon's Head,Balverine Head,Gnome Trophy,The Complete Works of Philipth Morley,Orb of Magicka,Normanomicon and Chicken Trophy. With the DLC the Teddy Bear has been added so this leaves 2 more.
The remaining 2 trophies are so far unknown. It is possible the remaining spots are saved for DLC trophies.

So I have done the game and started a new one will my weapon count/Outfit still be the same?
No it will start at 0,a new game means the hunt will be on again for the weapons and outfits. But you can have up to five save's which you can swap items from save to save.

How do I transfer items from one of my hero save to another one?
1. Set up a dummy profile and start a new game in pad two. Then have your hero join the world a bit like the henchmen achievement. Give the items you want on the other save to him. Sign out then load the other save and trade across.

2. Have a friend join give him the items then swap to the other save a trade back.



Places in the World of Fable 3

I can’t find Sunset house!?
Run from the fort to the village in Mourning wood past where you do the Sam and Max quests keep an eye out for a gate to the left you can’t miss it it’s just past the cemetery or follow the video

I can’t find/access Driftwood!?
Driftwood lies near the coast. Driftwood is presumably an island, "established" by the Hero at some point in the game, since the achievement Island Paradise mentions it's establishment. To get to Driftwood you must build the bridge in Millfields.
You have to wait at least a few days (In-game time) for the bridge to be built, then either walk across It, or fast travel. Once there, you will have to complete a quest to kill the Hobbes Inhabiting the Island to make It safe for people to live there, you will need to complete a few more quest on the Island to establish It as a settlement.

In sunset house but the skull/light are not there what can I do?
If you know which area to stand in do this and it will still unlock follow the video

Where can I find the Orphanage?
It's in Bowerstone Industrial, to the right of the Reaver Industries building. There's either a fence of hedge around.





Ragnarok1986 01-17-2011 02:23 PM

Collectibles Weapons/Clothing/Keys & Achievements


Can I buy Weapons in other people worlds?
Yes.

Can any of the collectables be missed?
Yes and no some people are saying if you don’t repair Bowerstone after it is destroyed you can’t get the silver key. And other people are saying it is located in another house. What you can do is join another hero world to pick it up.

Is the Marksmen’s 500 required for the weapons achievement?
No, the weapon is not required for the 50/50 but it does count as one. So if you do get all weapons with this one you will have 51.

Can I collect all Legendary Weapons on my own?
In theory it should be possible, but since weapons are random it would take many, many play through and lots of time to collect them all.

How can I trade items with myself?
Okay a few ways to do this but no real simple way like swapping then from one save to another.

Option one set up a dummy profile and start a new game in pad two. Then have your hero join the world a bit like the henchmen achievement. Give the items you want on the other save to him. Sign out then load the other save and trade across.

Option two have a friend join give him the items then swap to the other save a trade back.

If I save before opening a chest containing a Legendary Weapon, open it, reload and open it again, will I receive a different Legendary Weapon?
No you won't

Where are the Legendary Weapons Locations in my hero world?
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...79&postcount=5


How do I get the Coronation Chicken achievement before the end of the game?
Once you become Ruler and are summoned to the Throne Room, immediately go to the sanctuary and equip your Chicken Suit. After delivering the first judgement on the Faye of Logan, the achievement will pop. If you sold or somehow don't have the Chicken Suit, it can be bought in Brightwall Village

Can I do the Crime Spree once I am King/Queen?
You can do this in your own world once you have become King/Queen, but no counter will appear to track the bounty on your head. Go to Brightwall Village, kill everyone and destroy all the windows & doors. Then run from the library to the town entrance, killing the guard respawns until the achievement pops.

How long does the 1000 Hench man gold take?
It will take a few hours. First you'll receive 10gold per 5 minutes and at 200 it'll become 100. If you have 2 controllers you can make a dummy profile and have your main profile join that game and leave your Xbox for a while.

Is there anyway I can check how much gold i have got in Hench man?
Each stage of 100gold will show you e.g. 100,200,300...etc on screen as a pop up. But you can’t view the information any other place.

What is the easiest way to obtain the Chef Hat?
Inside the kitchen at Bowerstone Castle kitchen, progress your relationship (marry) with a cook of the opposite sex or the same sex if they are gay. Set the Castle as the family home with an upkeep of 1000 gold. Sleep for two days, then visit your significant other to collect the gift. Rinse and repeat sleeping 2 days/opening gifts until you get the chef's hat.

Where can I find the chests now I have all 50 silver keys?
Follow the information here http://www.gamerzines.com/guides/fab...-easter-eggs/#

Can I do the collectibles in another person's world?
It’s said that keys and gnomes can be collected this way, but books can't (flowers not confirmed at the moment)


Can I collect all clothes on my own?
Yes. If you have a male and female character you can, though it still might be a challenge to get a cook's hat. Unless you buy the Understone DLC and it will be in a chest.

I tried to join an online game but now I lost all my weapons etc.
you’re the victim of a famous glitch. Nothing can be done about it.

I can’t unlock Unlocking "Popularity Contest"
follow the link and information on the thread is here-http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ent.php?f=1472



DLC FAQ

Located at the top of the forum will be a link taking you to the DLC Traitors Keep which a guide is ready and more information. Understone has no DLC or separate thread so feel free to post or ask questions here.

How do I start Understone DLC
It will highlight as a quest click and it will warp you there.

How do I start Traitors Keep?
When you download the DLC a new quest will appear go to the treasury. Then you will go into the throne room which a cut scene will start for it. (You must be King/Queen to access this)

I have to meet the prison guard in the record room but my trail is going down the cliff and into the cave entrance?
Ignore the trail and enter the prison and go right up the stairs you should see him waiting for you.

How can I open the gate at the Godwin Estate?
When you get given the key for all the prison cells near the end go unlock Mary cell and the key is located in the book shelf.

I have all books but no achievements WTF?
You must wait for the book to finish reading and it should unlock. But some people have said this is a glitch. So if it does happen you may have start it again with a other hero.

Can I travel back to the new island if I leave them?
Yes they are located on your world map.

I have Traitors Keep and opened the last Demon Door, but now the counter has reset and I have no achievement!
It's a common glitch. If the Demon Door at Ravenscar Keep is the last one you open, it will reset the counter and won’t give the achievement. There's no fix yet so you'll have to start over again.



Glitches

Coming Soon







Any more question/answer add in the thread and I will get these updated, lets try and clean the forum up!

More to add:

Me and my (white) spouse have gotten a black child
It has ben confirmed that this a glitch.
Quote:

There is a bug in Fable III where the ethnicity of your biological children does not match you or your spouse.
My spouse died and now my children are gone!
If your spouse dies, your children will be brought to the Bowerstone Industrial Orphanage. If you want them back, you need to re-adopt them there, which costs 500 gold even though it's your own child.

I've missed Coronation Chikcen on my walkthrough, what now?
You need to do another playthrough to get it. You can't get it by joining someone else's game.

I cant find a certain toy for my kid
A way to get it is to kick some civilians out their house and search it. When you're done, place them back. Repeat.

Not in your world but you can join another hero world to do this.

I remember reading that you CAN do it once you become ruler but the tracker doesn't appear. I can't confirm but it may be worth noting.

Also, I can confirm that if you're wanted in a town before you become ruler and then become ruler before it resolves (through a fine, community service, or the timer runs out) when you go back it's as if you aren't ruler - guards will attack you if you cause trouble, thus the achievement is possible.

JesdenMartynov 01-18-2011 07:49 PM

does rpair of buildings affect anything?

Sway Leggs 01-19-2011 02:16 AM

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this .........

Does anyone have a link to a site or video to anything that will show me where all the silver chest are?

I have all the keys now, in my travels I have seen a few chest but didn't open them because I was waiting to get all the keys first then I was going to open all the chests in one shot.
Someone told me not to waste my time. That the only one worth getting is # 50. I hate to say but I don't care if it's worth it or not. I ran around getting 50 keys so it's only right that I open all the chest that go with the keys.

Toams07 01-19-2011 12:50 PM

Just a small hint:
At the top of the list either type FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) or A&Q (Answers & Questions) but not F&Q
could be me, but I'd 'read' F&Q Frequently & Questions ... since it's a FAQ ..

Okay.
You indeed replaced the F&Q by FAQ above the question list but the 'introduction' still says F&Q

Dont want to be bothering you, but if you change that tiny bit people wont get confused and you have the proper (dont want to be rude) text.

Can I do the collectables in another person's world?
it's said that keys and gnomes can be collected this way, but books can't (I don't know about the flowers)

Yes. If you have a male and female character you can, though it still might be a challenge to get a cook's hat.

122 days to go is the point of no return. So if you dont have the gold do no progress with the main quest.

Isnt this 121 days?

Toams07 01-19-2011 05:33 PM

I think you might want to ask a mod to add some posts for you to edit between your list and the 2nd post
I dont think you'll get everything on 1 post

TombRaiser 01-19-2011 07:14 PM

I have one you might want to add concerning where to find all the Legendary Weapon Locations. I had made two replies to people about this, but the posts always gets buried away, so people may continue to ask "Where are the Legendary Weapons Locations?" So here is the where they are:

It is only a text guide, but I think it's pretty straightforward.

No you won't

Toams07 01-20-2011 03:46 PM

Hey man I dont mean to put more work on your shoulders, but perhaps you could divide the questions into different subjects like ''Family'', ''Weapons'', ''Achievements'', ''Collectables'' .
That would help other players to find the answer they need quicker

Ragnarok1986 01-20-2011 03:47 PM

Was thinking this i will do it over the weekend :D

Sphyder 01-20-2011 05:53 PM

Hi, I just wanted to check if I can carry on after the main game? I want to finish the story then do the dull collectable shizzle.
