Exits Headsman's Hill

Headsman's Cave is a small cave below Headsman's Hill in Fable, Fable: The Lost Chapters, and Fable Anniversary. Normally, it is only accessible if you duel Thunder in the quest Mayor's Invitation, during which Thunder and the Hero tumble over the cliff together.

However there is a glitch which allows you to get down to Headman's Cave, even if you didn't fight Thunder. Near the ledge, there is a chest. Stand as close to the left side of the chest as you can, then use your Guild Seal to teleport to another location. After that, recall back to Headsman's Hill. You should now be just in front of Headsman's Cave.

There is a Demon Door here which, conveniently, will open only once it sees you have defeated another Hero in combat. Once Thunder is finally defeated inside the cave, the Door will open, but it only serves as an exit to Gibbet Woods.

Fishing in the small pond outside will yield a Silver Key, and inside the cave there is a silver key chest containing a Mana Augmentation. The chest requires fifteen keys to open.
