|This article is about the mythical creature known as a Sandgoose. For other uses of the name, see The Sandgoose.|
The Sandgoose is a mythological goose said to be in a desert in Albion. Many stories have been told about this legendary creature. It is also said to speak English at the level of a three year old.
The Sandgoose was a creature rumoured to be in Fable, but many fans were disappointed by it not being in the game; many had searched for hours to find the whereabouts of the mythical creature, with no avail. It is however mentioned in Fable: The Lost Chapters and Fable Anniversary by the Snowspire Oracle. Since then, references to the Sandgoose have appeared throughout the subsequent games in the series.
The Oracle's Prophecy
"Many strange creatures have walked upon this world since its birth, yet the historians who found some of their remains are responsible for one which never existed: the fabled Sandgoose. Joining the remains of various beasts, they hypothesized that this flightless bird was the size of a house, lived primarily in deserts and was able to speak a variety of languages. There are those who still believe in its existence, but their search has proved fruitless so far."
