The Creatures of Albion Book III is the third book in the "Creatures of Albion" book series in Fable, Fable: The Lost Chapters, and Fable Anniversary. This book, along with others in the "Creatures of Albion" series, can be found in a bookshelf in the Heroes' Guild. This volume is about balverines, hobbes, kraken, and dragons.

Contents of BookEdit

The wolf-people of the forests, Balverines are strong, cunning and fast. They are evil through and through, but especially so are the stronger, more cunning White Balverines born of a full moon. These are said to be the result of those bitten who resisted the poison and, instead of dying, became one with the clan. The Old Kingdom tells of silver weapons built especially to kill these White Balverines.
The under-race of the dells and hollows, the Hobbes are short and squat half-people whose genetics are entwined with the mud and slime of the deep country. Often dim but always aggressive, Hobbes are led by tougher leaders. The brainiest can even learn to use spells, some say.
Albion is surrounded by nine seas, and the Krakens rule them all. These aquatic creatures were here long before the Kingdoms of Old, yet few have ever seen one. And not even the most boastful Heroes claim to have defeated a Kraken in combat.
What more can be said about these fiery creatures who own the mountains? A race in decline, they were once revered, but now they are just an ancient, albeit powerful and dangerous relic of the Old Kingdom.

Book CollectionEdit

In Fable: TLC and Fable Anniversary, this book can be donated to the school in Bowerstone South during the quest Book Collection. Once donated, Mr. Gout, the headmaster, will teach a lesson on the book:

Mr. Gout: Thanks to this kind Hero, today's lesson is from Volume Three of "The Creatures of Albion". If Trolls rule the land and Dragons the skies, then the mighty Kraken are masters of the sea. Few men have ever seen a Kraken, and fewer still have lived to tell the tale. Since before the times of the Old Kingdom these terrifying creatures have lurked in the seas that surround Albion. Their tentacles can grow to be over a hundred feet long and are strong enough to crush a ship like kindling. A brave sailor once drove away a Kraken by hacking off one of those gargantuan tentacles, but to kill one of the beasts... that would truly be a Heroic task.
