Jackconceptart
Jack of Blades is the central antagonist of Fable and Fable: The Lost Chapters. According to the Snowspire Oracle, Jack was already ancient by the time humans came into existence, and appeared in the unnamed world from the Void with the Court. He used his Mask to take over host bodies and thus live forever. Whilst in his humanoid form, he was never seen without the Mask, nor his original body ever shown. He is a master of strength, skill and will.

Featured Articles Edit

The featured articles of the wiki are articles that represent the best The Fable Wiki has to offer. They appear in the Features column of the Main Page and are changed periodically. This section is designed for nominations and voting on the next article to be featured there.

In order to nominate an article, you should first check that it meets the requirements to be a featured article.

An article must...

  1. ...be well written and detailed
  2. ...be unbiased, from a neutral point of view
  3. ...be sourced with all available sources and appearances
  4. ...follow the Manual of Style
  5. ...not be the object of any ongoing edit wars
  6. ...not be tagged with any sort of improvement tags (i.e. stub, images needed, incomplete)
  7. ...have a concise introduction that can be used for the Main Page Features column
  8. ...be of a sufficient length
  9. ...have images, if appropriate, that follow the Image use policy
  10. ...have a completed infobox if suitable

For more information on what makes a featured article, see Wikipedia:What is a featured article.

Nominating an Article

  1. First, choose an article you find is worthy of featured status; see criteria above.
  2. Add it to the Article Nominations list in the same format as the example.
  3. Others will review the nomination, and can then vote on it (see below). Any objections should always be accompanied by a reason, and should be signed with ~~~~.
  4. Any article that has had an objection to its nomination can be improved during the nomination period and will still be considered. Any improvements as a direct result of objections should be noted below the corresponding objection, and be signed with ~~~~.
  5. A user should only nominate one article at a time.
  • Admins reserve the right to:
    • reject a nominated article if they feel it does not conform to the criteria
    • choose the final articles

How to Vote

  1. Before voting, be sure to read the articles completely, keeping a sharp eye out for mistakes.
  2. Afterwards, compare the article to the criteria listed above, and then either support or oppose the article's nomination.
  3. Once all opposition complaints have been solved (or the article has 5 supports and no outstanding complaints after a certain period of time), the article will be reviewed by an admin before being added to the queue and officially becoming known as a "featured article".

Featured Media Edit

The featured media on the wiki is a Fable video featured to show interesting information about the series or to demonstrate the series' gameplay. Videos appear in the Features column of the Main Page and are changed periodically. This section is designed for nominations and discussion on the next video to be featured there.

Most of the videos featured in the Featured Media box are embedded from YouTube, and can therefore be identified by their YouTube view code. In order to nominate a video, you should first check that it meets the requirements to be featured.

A video must...

  1. ...be of a suitable quality and resolution
  2. ...have good contrast and colour balance
  3. ...have a stable recording; i.e. no camera shake or poor focusing
  4. ...be different from other videos available, or be the 'best of the rest'


Nominating and Voting for a Video

  1. First, choose a video you find is worthy of featured status; see criteria above.
  2. Add it to the Video Nominations list in the same format as the example.
  3. Others will review the nomination and comment on it. All comments should be signed with ~~~~.
  4. At the end of the nomination period, an admin will review the nominations and pick the video they think conforms best to the criteria, taking into account the comments provided. They will then add it to the Featured Media box on the Main Page.
  • Admins reserve the right to:
    • remove inappropriate videos from this process
    • feature any of the nominated videos if considered topical
  • The featured media need not be from YouTube, but YouTube videos are preferred. Any other video can be suggested, as long as there is a direct link to the webpage it is featured on and a way to embed it.

The featured quotes of the wiki can be anything that any character or developer from the Fable series has said. Character quotes are most common, but quotes from Lionhead developers are also allowed.

Nominating a Quote

  2. Add it to the Quote Nominations list, using the {{quote}} template, in the same format as the example.
  3. Others will review the nomination and can comment on it. All comments should be signed with ~~~~.
  4. At the end of the nomination period, an admin will select one of the quotes to be put in the Featured Quote box on the Main Page.
  5. There is no need to support or oppose the nomination of a quote. Unless a quote has distinctly negative comments, they will all be featured on the main page in the order they are nominated.
  • Admins reserve the right to:
    • remove or reorder the quotes in the list, provided a reason is given
    • feature a conforming quote out-of-turn if considered topical
