Redirected from Fable II dyes

Dyes can be purchased all throughout Albion from stylists, tailors, or found as treasure in Fable II. Dyes can range from a variety of colours and are primarily used to change the colour of either the Hero's clothing or hair. The Dyes can be found in the Pause menu under Items.

Once you have selected the Dye you wish to use, you are given the option of which clothing item or hairstyle you want to change. After selecting the item, press the X button to apply the colour. There will be a model of your Hero to the right that will show you what the changes look like. Certain clothing has the option to add a secondary colour change using the Y button.

Dyes never run out, so there is only the need to purchase one. It will never disappear from your inventory and you can sell any extras you may come across.

Base Value: 250 Gold
Description: This item is only found on Knothole Island. If one peers into the lake at the centre of Knothole Island in the middle of a moonlit night, and if one squints rather forcefully and if, in addition, one is slightly drunk, one gets the sense of just how wonderful the dark blue of Knothole can be. Of course, one could stop arsing about and just use the dye instead.

Trivia Edit

  • The Swarthy Revenge Indigo dye is an obvious reference to the character Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride. This is supported by the statement in the description, 'You have crushed its flowers. Prepare to dye.' This is a parody of Inigo Montoya's infamous quote, 'Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.'
