Renown is your Hero's familiarity status, or fame, among the people of Albion. Your renown (along with your alignment) determines how people react to you: the more renown you have, the more people will either revere you if good, or despise you if evil. Renown appears to dictate the level of standard (non-quest) enemies you face (ie: hobbes will be replaced by earth trolls, bandits will be replaced by stronger bandits). Higher renown will also grant you access to actions (such as the Flirt or Manly Arm Pump expressions in Fable and Fable TLC and the Blow Kiss or Follow expressions in Fable II).
How To Increase Renown[edit | edit source]
You can increase your renown by:
- Completing quests
- Donating to the Temple of Avo
- Showing off your trophies (larger audiences gain you more renown)
- Killing enemies
- Winning competitions
- Paying a Bard (10 Gold) to sing a song about you
- Having a statue of your Hero made (Fable II only)
You can lose 50 renown by losing a fist fight against a Fist Fighters Gang.
Levels of Renown[edit | edit source]
Once you have obtained a certain amount of renown, you may reach a new level familiarity in Albion.

Fable II[edit | edit source]
Your Hero will have different renown levels for different settlements (such as Bower Lake, Bowerstone, Oakfield, Fairfax Gardens, Westcliff and Bloodstone) which means that although you may be popular in one region you may be unknown in another.
