The Treasure of the Ghost Pirate is a Bronze quest in Fable, Fable: The Lost Chapters, and Fable Anniversary. The quest is started by talking to the ghost on Oakvale's south-east beach.

Quest Summary[]

Find the ghost's treasure and return it to his wife.

This quest is in Oakvale. Talk to the woman standing towards the right of the jetty, she is mourning her husband sailing to sea years ago. Next go to the other side of town to talk to the chicken fighter. He wants you to get rid of the ghost where he works, this is the ghost of the woman’s husband. Find his treasure and then speak to his wife.


  1. Dig up the gold.
  2. (Optional) Give the gold to the ghost's wife.
  3. (Optional) Return to the ghost and tell him of your good deed.
  4. Find the ghost's treasure (1 Silver Key Obsidian Great Axe) under the statue's axe in the Graveyard.


Good Method[]

The ghost asks the Hero of Oakvale to give the former's wife 500 Gold which he hid on the western beach before his death. The gold is buried on the left side of the dock on the western beach, with the ghost's wife located a bit further down the beach. Giving the gold to the wife will give the Hero 60 good points. Return to the ghost and he will give the Hero directions to his reward in the Oakvale Cemetery and vanish. Find the statue of the man holding the axe in the centre of the cemetery and dig underneath the axe to obtain a Silver Key and an Obsidian Great Axe. The Hero is awarded 100 Gold and 150 Renown and the quest is finished.

Other Methods[]

The Hero has the option of skipping the second and third objectives by immediately digging up the 500 Gold, the Silver Key, and the Obsidian Great Axe. Doing this will render the 60 good points unobtainable.

Killing the ghost's wife rewards the Hero with 60 evil points and causes the ghost to vanish. This must be done either before she leaves town after giving her the 500 Gold or before the reward is dug up.

There are ways of preventing the Hero from being able to start the quest and getting the 100 Gold and 150 Renown. If the Hero digs up the 500 Gold, kills the wife, or digs up the reward before talking to the ghost, he will have vanished and the quest will have never been started. As long as the ghost is talked to, the 100 Gold and 150 Renown will be acquired after digging up the key and axe. If the ghost's reward is dug up before starting the quest or digging up the gold on the beach, the gold on the beach will disappear and not be obtainable.


  • Although this is a Bronze quest, the icon on the Map screen is silver.
  • It's believed that the Treasure of the Ghost Pirate quest is a successor to an unused quest called Heroes Old Home.
