The lights are on
A new post on developer Lionhead's Fable Legends blog details one of Fable Legends' heroes, Rook.
In Fable Legends, rather than create their own hero, players take on the role of of a few pre-selected heroes and team up in groups of four. Rook appears to be your long-range hero, as a cross-bow is his main weapon.
According to the post, Rook is from the cold north of Albion, where he was a member of the Strangers, a group dedicated to guarding the south from the horrors of the Deadlands. Rook is, "believes in honor, justice and the sort of sensible short haircut required for hand-to-hand combat." In Legends, he is removed from his role in the Strangers and takes on the role of a hero in Albion. To read more about him head here.

Will you be able to play this alone or will you need to fill out the group with other humans?
This sounds much like a form of Gauntlet for the original Xbox, does it not? I have to wonder how it might play and if there is more to just killing within dungeons and leveling up much like Gauntlet. Normally, I would say that I might not have given this game a chance but after hearing a little bit more on the play style, it might be a fun multiplayer diversion.
There's a demand for anything regarding that game? Or Fable in general these days?
He seems like your typical average goody 2 shoes Hero from Albion, but then again this is the first I've heard from him.
Eh, I had the most fun in Fable doing random sh*t to random npcs. Like trying to contract an STD by getting every hooker I could find in Fable 2 to have sex with me at the same time. I did it with 12 of them in one go, but still no STD. Or wooing people into marrying me in Fable 3 and then running outside the town and promptly murdering them to power up my weapon. This game doesn't look like it will support that kind of fun from what I have seen so far.
if i can make my own hero/villain. there no point in getting this.
i miss the single/co-op ones. where they can interact with your world and so on.
This makes me sad. I loved creating my own character. I know you didnt get to completly create your player but still you could do a little of it. But I do love this franchise and will trust them.
