The Hero of Many Names - 5
Change your Hero's title, or see another Hero change theirs.
Fairly simple achievement here. All you need to do is seek the help of a "Town Crier" and pay a small fee for a new title. You'll start out as Sparrow, so you need to change it to something else. Town Criers can be found in Oakfield and Bowerstone Market, so head there. Sometimes, you don't even need to pay and your renown and acts will unlock free ones.
The Paragon - 15
Reach 100% good or evil, or see another Hero do so.
Notice the word "or" here. Your choice. Either be ridiculously good which involves saving people, do what would be the "right" choice and acting as a righteous hero (try donating money to the Temple of Light), or be bad to the bone and this can be done by killing innocents and town guards, choosing the evil choices in the two choice quests and easily by joining the Temple of Shadows and sacrificing villagers (easiest way).
To get more good points: Eat tofu, accept gifts, free slaves, play the lute, donate to the Temple of Light, donate gold to beggars (a gift of 200k gold gives you 2,000 good points which is enough to go from 100% bad to 100% good!).
To get more bad points: Kill guards, steal, sacrifice people in the Temple of Shadows.
The Extremist - 15
Reach 100% purity or corruption, or see another Hero do so.
Again, either or. I personally found the easiest way to get this was by buying property and either jumping the rent up 100% (corrupt) or letting folks live there free (pure). Obviously, jumping the rent up 100% means you can get more money and more houses and get there quicker. Remember, it pays to be bad.
Other ways to affect the scale are as follows (list non exhaustive):
To get more purity - Protected sex, eating fruits and vegetables.
To get more corruption - Unprotected sex, bigamy, sleep for 7 days.
The Celebrity - 50
Reach 50,000 renown, or see another Hero do so.
All quests shell out renown points, so do as many as you can. Quests later on in the game obviously get tougher and net more points, 50,000 isn't really that much when considering some of the later quests are worth 5k plus. Here's a list of worthwhile renown quests which give loads of renown and become available after you’ve achieved the Hero of Will achievement that is tied to the story:
- Westcliffe Development – Renown 1500 (will cost you an initial 5k in gold though but you’ll get it back)
- Hobbe Squaters – Renown Reward 3500
- The Blind Date – Renown Reward 3500
The following will become available at some point after you travel through Wraithmarsh:
- Treasure Island of Doom! – Renown 7500
- T.O.B.Y – Renown 4000 (Bloodstone)
- Love Hurts – Renown 8500 (Bowerstone Cemetary)
- Evil in Wrathmarsh – Renown 4000
- Something Rotten – Renown 3500 (Rookridge Inn)
- Brightwood Tower – Renown 3000
- Rescuing Charlie – Renown 5000
Completing the game is worth 10k renown as well, so bear that in mind.

NOTE - If the books aren't there when you go to the Book Store, try again later on in the story, please don't ask, "why isn't this there?". The appearance of books seems to be random. Try buying everything and then going back later if all else fails.
Then finally, to finish, you have to max all your attributes out (Skill, Strength and Will). This is a lot of grinding, if unlike me, you have the Temple of Light still available, sizeable donations could help speed this process up. If not, try and buy the Thunder Strength Potion, Expert Skill Potion, Undiluted Will Potion and the Pure Experience potion for around 10,000 gold, but they give you 62k experience each.
If you are unfortunate to have stepped down the road to darkness early on and have no Temple of Light to donate to, then a good strategy is to buy a Thunder Strength Potion, Expert Skill Potion, Undiluted Will Potion and the Pure Experience Potion from the Bowerstone Market Alchemist and then run to the inn (or your house) and sleep for a week. You must have gold to burn to do this though
NOTE: THIS ACHIEVEMENT REQUIRES THE FABLE 2 PUB GAMES REWARDS. IF YOU HAVEN'T PURCHASED THE GAME, WATCH A FRIEND GET THE ACHIEVEMENT OR FIND SOMEONE WITH ALL THE EXPRESSIONS & ABILITIES AND GET THEM TO SELL BACK AND REBUY AN ABILITY WITH YOU IN THEIR GAME.
