Fable 3

Fable 3 Achievements

Island Paradise

Establish the island of Driftwood.  

Quest: Driftwood chain - Restoration, Pest Control & Giftwood for Driftwood
Worth: Guild Seals
Location: Driftwood
How to Complete: There are a couple of quests you must complete before you can get this. Here's a breakdown of each quest:

Quest: Restoration
Worth: 5 Guild Seals
Location: Millfields
How to Complete: Follow your gold trail until you reach Griffith Smith on top of a hill (recognize this area?). All he asks for is 750 gold to help build the bridge. Pay him and the quest is complete.

Return here later to cross the bridge to the old gypsy camp and to go north into Driftwood.

Quest: Pest Control
Worth: 5 Guild Seals
Location: Driftwood
How to Complete: Speak to Robin on the beach. He explains that Driftwood wants to expand but they can’t because of the Hobbes. Swim to the larger island offshore and start your Hobbe hunting! They're spread out across the 3 large islands but your gold trail will show you which way to go next after each batch. Kill them all and return to Robin to complete the quest.

Quest: An Island Getaway
Worth: 5 Guild Seals
Location: Bowerstone Market
How to Complete: Meet Rusty on the 2nd floor of the Bowerstone Market and agree to take him to the new Driftwood. Then simply, escort him across Albion to Driftwood and let him go onto the new islands.

Quest: Giftwood for Driftwood
Worth: 10 Guild Seals
Location: Driftwood
How to Complete: Cross a new bridge onto the other island and talk to the villager. Again Driftwood wants to expand but it seems they don’t have a good enough carpenter. He'll hand you a letter to take to one of the best carpenters in Albion, who lives in Silverpines.

Either run all the way there or use fast travel but once you've handed him the letter the quest is complete. You must now leave Driftwood for the effects to take place and about 15 minutes later the achievement will pop.

I completed Pest Control and then Get Wood For Driftwood in that order and it
didn't pop. So i did Island Get Away to try to get it and it still didn't pop.
Did I do everything or is something out of order??

how do you get those quests?

Comment #8 by TheRedComet88
Sunday, November 07, 2010 @ 01:06:53 PM

I have the strategy Guide and apparently after you do the Get Wood for Driftwood quest you need to walk out of the village and it should pop. However after following these steps it did not pop for me, and I am still waiting for it. Also before you do Pest Control quest you need to do the Restoration Quest. Which is giving 7000 gold to some guy wanting to restore the island.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who hasn't got this cheevo to pop. I've almost done every single quest in the game and I still have yet to get this to pop. I have done everything needed for this to unlock with no luck. Seems this is a glitchy achievement. Hopefully they fix this soon.

After you get wood for driftwood (by convincing the lumber guy in silverpine to
move there) you have to convince another person too in industrial, you gotta
hold hands the entire way there it kinda sucks but after he gets there your wait
like one hour real life time and the acheivement pops up

I can confirm that sleeping until the morning appears to work quite nicely. Popped immediately when I slept.

It popped immediateley for me after the silverpines guy quest so it probly glitches but it should pop. And i dont know if this was answered but #4, the quests dont appear themselves, you have to go to millfields i think and then find a bridge where you just pay the guy to explore

I am so confused the quest to take the letter to the guy will not open up for me. I've escorted the guy, and cleared the hobbes but it will just not give the third quest. I am afraid if I progress to far in the game it might not ever become open. Did anyone else have this problem? Any ideas or suggestions?

I have done all the quests except the ones where you have to collect the flowers, books, and gnomes. I'm king now so why havent any of these missions popped up? Was i suppose to do this before becoming king?

seeing that people say sleeping gets it to pop, i ran to my house in brightwall, except i ran into my wife..i brought to the bed for a little unprotected sex, and it popped right after that. it seems sleeping or sex, anything to do with a bed will get it to pop

Comment #35 by Barrosy
Sunday, March 06, 2011 @ 12:33:49 PM

Found it, you need to escort a gambler, to find this quest, it is a quest wich starting ay Bowerstone Market. NOT DRIFTWOODS.

Comment #36 by TatteredMorph
Tuesday, March 08, 2011 @ 06:55:40 AM

it seems that doing these quests seems to trigger the achievement:
Restoration (Give 750 gold to a guy in Millfields)
Leave Millfields and go to sleep or do a couple of other quests (so that the bridge can be restored)

This then makes available:
Pest Control (Kill the hobbes in Driftwood)
and then:
Gift wood for Driftwood (Take a letter to a carpenter in Silverpines)

Once these are done you then need to do:
An Island Getaway (Escort the gambler from the pub in Bowerstone Market to Driftwood)

The achievement then popped about ten minutes later for me for no apparent reason (I was just running through Millfields) It's possible that sleeping could well trigger it as well, but I can't confirm this.

Hope this helps. :-)

Comment #37 by Flamin B
Sunday, March 13, 2011 @ 03:47:24 PM

Yeah, it pops up a while after you do the quests.

In fact, it surprised me a bit, because it came up while I was in the middle of the "Reaver's Unmentionables" quest. LOL!

Me and a coop buddy got this randomly online, he had finished the quest the day before and for some reason it popped the minute we entered coop :P

Friday, April 01, 2011 @ 11:56:54 PM

just do all the quest avialable thenit usually glicthes out and it gives you the achievment when you get a different achievment, play the mourningwood fort game, or have a baby.

You have to wait for the island to be rebuilt.

Comment #44 by Your skill died
Saturday, July 09, 2011 @ 08:21:17 PM

Confirmed. You must do the quest restoration by giving the man 7,000 gold to restore the island. Then you must complete the quest 'The debt' otherwise the 2nd quest wont appear in your quest list. Afterwards you have to wait an allocated amount of time for the third quest to pop. I find sleeping then quitting and entering works fine. After you convince the lumberjack to move to driftwood. You must continue to bower-stone market and lead another one by hand-held walking to driftwood (BULLSHIT). After the trilogy of quests are completed proceed to the nearest bed to sleep in the bed for 24 hours. This would work i've found 75% of the time. If not, do another quest, have a kid, do something outstanding in the game that makes a difference and the achievement defiently does pop.

I gave the guy the money, i've killed hobbes, I did the mission with the
lumberjack, I escorted the guy there (By hand -_-) and after went off to another area and slept till morning. After that I went back to driftwood and still no
achievement. T_T This is bull.

Friday, September 30, 2011 @ 01:45:33 PM

The reason it takes so long to pop is like everything in the game the development of a location is not instant similar to the dark sanctum.

Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 12:12:07 PM

Anybody know if there's a glitch in the marriage for inconvenience quest? When I approach the guy in brightwall, he does not talk/interact with me. This topic is not relevant but I'll appreciate any guide from you guys.

Go to Millfields and run to the top of the hill that has the Stonehenge-like ruins on it. Talk to the man by the broken bridge and then press the "Accept" button to pay him 750 gold to complete the "Restoration" quest. Leave the area and allow 24 hours to pass in the game.

Return to the location of the "Restoration" quest and cross the newly built bridge. Follow the path into Driftwood.

Talk to the man in the gypsy camp with the quest marker above his head. Press the "Accept" button and then follow the objective trail. Kill all four groups of Hobbes you encounter, then return to the man.

Wait for another 24 hours to pass in the game, then go to Bowerstone Market. Go to the second floor of the pub and talk to the gambler. Accept the "Island Getaway" quest from him, then hold

then hold his hand and lead him in the direction of the objective trail.

Exit Bowerstone Market toward Millfields and then fight off all attackers along the path. Continue to follow the objective trail and lead the gambler to Driftwood. Follow the objective trail through Driftwood until the gambler rewards you with Guild Seals.

Allow another 24 hours to pass in the game and return to Driftwood. Go to the main island and accept the "Giftwood for Driftwood" quest from the gypsy with the quest marker above his head.
# 7

Travel to Silverpines and follow the objective trail. Fight the balverines along the way until you reach the indicated cabin. Go inside and hold down the "Accept" button in front of the carpenter to complete the quest. Wait another 24 hours in the game to rec

Can any single one of you read?
It says, and i quote:

[b]You must now leave Driftwood for the effects to take place and about 15 minutes later the achievement will pop.[b]

Basically its not going to pop straight away the time delays is because the place is being built.

Or maybe read the cheevo guide and not just comments, sheep.

Monday, April 30, 2012 @ 09:03:44 AM

I've got the achievement but the carpenter from silverpines hasn't left his cabin. I gave him the letter and he said he was going to go there. I then took the gambler to driftwood I've managed to hit the flit switch a few times but now it's on a stand I can't quite reach next to a tree. I don't know why but the place has been built up but not fully but the carpenter is still in his house. Any1 else got this problem or know how to sort it out cause I want the gold key. HELP!

Wednesday, September 19, 2012 @ 06:43:58 PM

After you complete the last step (which involves going to the pub like mentioned above) go sleep in a bed--which will pass the time equal to a whole day. When you wake up, the achievement pops.
