Murder with a Twist is a bronze quest in Fable: The Lost Chapters.

You’ll find a trio of guards behind a house in Oakvale where you met Orwin Gown as a boy. One of the guards will offer you 1000 gold coins to kill the assassin who killed his brother. The assassin can be found in Twinblade's Tent. However, when you talk to the assassin, you’ll learn that he's the guard’s brother, and that the guard wants him dead so that he can improve his inheritance. Then when you draw your weapon, he’ll realize that his brother sent you, and he’ll offer you 2000 gold to kill him instead. If you refuse, he’ll up his offer to 2500 gold.

While both choices seem evil, you will only gain evil alignment if you kill the guard. Both fights are about the same, you’ll have to battle three strong opponents, so it’s just a matter of whether you’d rather gain 2500 gold while losing some alignment, or just gain 1000 gold.

There is a rare glitch where the assassin falls dead randomly and you get the gold that you would get if he paid you to kill his brother.


  • You can accept the assassin's gold, then kill him and also receive the reward from the guard. While you will initially gain 20 evil morality points when you accept the assassin's gold, you will receive 40 good morality points upon actually killing the assassin, making the double-double cross the most lucrative but still "moral" option.
