The Circle of the Dead is a location in Fable, Fable: The Lost Chapters, and Fable Anniversary. It is the area of the Lychfield Graveyard beyond the Demon Door. To open this door you must gather every piece of Nostro's armour. When entering the Circle of the Dead you must defeat eight weak undead, then three stronger undead. This opens the secret passage leading to Bargate Prison. This is complicated by the fact that the undead can only be damaged while inside the deceptively small ring.

Also, in Fable: TLC and Fable Anniversary, if you choose to take Nostro's soul during the quest The Souls of Heroes, this is where you battle him.

Map Description[]

A mysterious stone circle, built in a style unlike any used in recent centuries.

Gravestones Inscriptions[]

  • “Kevin – what’s left of him is buried here.”
  • “Charlton of Edwardshire. His legendary sniping skills coundn’t keep him from harm”
  • “Benjamin, Leader of the Board, perished abroad”
  • “Here lieth Robbo the Great, kicker of several heads extraordinaire.”
  • “Nicholas Ricks. Produced meetings from his bag of tricks”
  • “Thanos – joined an army in a far off land. This is all that came back”

  • Any Undead fought in the area must be inside the circle structure on the ground to be touchable, otherwise they became ghost-like and cannot be hit. On the other hand they can hit the player anywhere despite being untouchable.


  • In the quest The Menagerie in Fable III, the Hero will cross areas with ancient structures at the Godwin State that are eerily reminiscent of the Circle of the Dead, which also bears its same powers of turning ghost-like Hollow Men touchable.
