Fable Timeline and Chronology

The first Fable game was hugely influential in the sphere of fantasy RPGs. It spawned several sequels, as well as an anniversary edition 10 years later. And though the franchise has lost a bit of its steam, it’s still a fun world to play in. This is the Fable timeline.

What’s on the Fable Timeline?

This list attempts to create a reading order (or in some cases viewing/playing order) for all major pieces of Fable media. This includes primarily all video games, novels, and short stories. This list does not attempt to split up any media so that they are read congruently, but rather focuses on an easy to follow reading/playing/watching list. In the event that two works cover the exact same time frame the one published first is read first. Additionally the placement within the timeline is often based on where the work ends rather than where it begins.

Where to Start?

Each of the three main games stand on their own, so you don’t have to play them in order. That said, since there is an anniversary edition of the first game, it’s not as dated as it could be, so we would generally recommend starting there. Otherwise, the two sequels are generally better in quality and gameplay, so they’re great too.

If you liked this timeline, you might like some of our others, such as our Lord of the Rings timeline. Be sure to let us know if we missed anything. Thank you, and enjoy!
