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

Contents of BookEdit

The nine seas surround Albion, but to the North is the Wasteland. Some say there's nothing, and others that it is Jack of Blades true home. The old Scribes say that it was once a mighty empire before the glaciers came. Libraries of arcane knowledge still exist beneath the ice, and those who once lived there sleep deeply beneath the cold blanket, ready to reawaken when the time comes and Albion is ruled again by one man.

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: Do any of you know what lies beyond the Nine Seas? Yes?

Sue: The Northern Wastes.

Mr. Gout: Well done, Sue. Legends say that Jack of Blades first appeared there, and that it was the home of a mighty empire. Today its ancient cities are buried deep beneath the ice. But there are still some who believe the empire will rise again. And that the people of the Northern Wastes will awaken when Albion is united once more.
