The Arena is a book in Fable, Fable: The Lost Chapters, and Fable Anniversary. It can be found in the Heroes' Guild.

Contents of BookEdit

Heroes left the Guild and made their choices, good or evil, in Albion. But, with the freedom to do as they chose, they often clashed. Sometimes they fought to the death. These bouts were often arranged in advance and people traveled from miles around to see them. Eventually the Arena was built, and the bouts became bigger and more spectacular. Creatures from across Albion were captured and brought there for Heroes to kill. One rule remained from the olden days, though. Should either combatant so choose, the battles could be to the death.

Book CollectionEdit

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

Mr. Gout: How many of you have been to the Witchwood Arena?

<Children raise hands>

Mr. Gout: But have you ever stopped to look at the statues in the Hall of Heroes? Some of the greatest Heroes in Albion's history are celebrated there. Mighty champions who conquered the Arena, and the people's hearts. In the days of the Old Kingdom, Heroes would lead their fans into battles, so they could see their skill and bravery in combat. But all too often spectators would find themselves torn limb from limb by Balverines, or caught in the backwash of a Hero's spell. And so the Arena was built in Witchwood, to give Heroes a permanent stage on which to fight their duels without endangering the audience. Creatures are brought there from all over Albion for Heroes to face, and the battles get more elaborate with every year that passes. But one rule remains unchanged. Should either Hero wish it, the final battle between them can be fought to the death.
