Disambiguous.png 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.

Background[]

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[]

The Oracle of Snowspire tells the Hero of Oakvale of a mythical creature said to roam the desert of Albion to the East. The Oracle says:

"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."
