Exits Via the Portal

The Road to Rule is an alternate realm that Theresa resides in during the events of Fable III. It serves as a system similar to levelling up that has been newly implemented into the game to reduce the presence of menus.

The Road to Rule is a 3D environment of a road blocked by several gates. Gates are opened by reaching certain points in the main plot, and every time a player passes through a gate it is interpreted as levelling up. The Hero is guided through the area by Theresa, and the Road can be reached through a Cullis Gate from the Sanctuary.

In between the gates are chests that are opened by spending Guild Seals. Each chest contains new aspects of gameplay, from spells and combat upgrades to property packs and expression expansions. If the player only wants to rush through to the end, then they do not need to open any chests, and can return for them all later. Although, if the player has enough guild seals to open chests, it is ill-advised to ignore them, as they may find themselves underpowered for the challenges ahead.

The chests are colour coordinated into different groups, with emblems on the lid referring to different gaming experiences in Fable III. Red Chests improve the more combat-orientated areas of gameplay, with the blue sword emblem indicating melee, the yellow crosshair icon indicating ranged and the red lightning bolt icon indicating magic. Green Chests give more simulation to the game, providing a better experience of being a Rebel or King. Finally, Blue Chests can be used to improve the economic features of gameplay and enhance the Real Estate opportunities in the different regions. As the Hero opens combat chests their weapons will morph based on things they did prior to opening said chest. For example, opening a chest to increase power with Melee weapons will also morph the weapon once.

The passage of time when visiting the Road to Rule appears to be inconsistent. When the Hero is summoned to the Road by Theresa at important points in the main quest, time stops when the portal appears, and resumes after the Hero leaves. When the Hero uses the Cullis Gate from the Sanctuary to visit the Road, time passes as normal for the period of time that they are not in the Sanctuary.

SilhouettesEdit

As the player progresses through the game, a number of ghostly silhouettes will appear in front of the most recent gate to open. These are the NPCs whom the player has befriended throughout the game; as the game progresses, the crowd of followers will increase in size. The crowd includes notable NPCs such as Walter, Jasper and Ben Finn, but also includes some minor NPCs such as Lesley from the Dark Sanctum quest line and Brian from the Gnomes quests. They show a visual representation of all the support the player has gained throughout the game's progression. They are also linked to how large your wings are at the end of the game; more supporters grants larger wings.

Main Quest Followers Edit

Side Quest Followers Edit

PlinthsEdit

As the player opens a new gate and progresses, a statue of their current player model (clothing, weapons, hairstyles, etc) is created on the plinth next to the gate. As the player progresses through the game and changes their appearance and various skill levels, the statue on the plinth of the newly opened gate will reflect this. The previous statues remain the same, creating a snapshot of the player as they were at the time the gate was opened. This provides a timeline of character progression.

There are two plinths at each gate; the one on the right is only used for co-op mode characters.

Gates and ChestsEdit

Fable road to rule gate

There are 48 chests along the Road to Rule, costing a total of 1512 Guild Seals to open. You will reach Gate 10 upon becoming the rightful ruler of Albion. Only then can you unlock all 48 chests, and by unlocking all you will gain the "Chest Grandmaster" Achievement (40 Points). Also, upon reaching the Castle in the Road to Rule, if you have not unlocked all of the levels for Magic, Ranged or Melee from the previous chests, you will be able to open all the ones you didn't open directly from the final three chests. This will cost the combined total amount of Guild Seals added together; you can also go back and open them separately. This effect applies to all chests that unlock progressively more powerful features.
