In Fable, the player's every action determines their character's skills, appearances and moralities. Characters' life stories are created from childhood to adulthood and continue to old age. They can grow from an inexperienced child into the most powerful being in the world, spoken of by all and immortalized in legend. Players may choose the path of righteousness or dedicate their characters' lives to evil; observing as they transform into reflections of their actions and decisions. Advancing age leaves characters wizened, battle leaves them scarred, gluttony affects obesity. With experiences come advancement and physical change; whether it is by expanding muscles, a keen eye and nimble form or the buzz of magical energies around their finger tips. As players' characters develop, the world reacts to them and their actions. People comment on their successes, failures, appearances and behaviors. Their many opinions are expressed through applause, mockery, trepidation, panic and even flirtation. In Fable, gamers decide: Who will I be?
