Children are a type of villager first introduced in Fable.

Fable and Fable: TLC Modifier

Children inhabit Oakvale during the Birthday Gift quest and Bowerstone South. They run around playing whenever they can and learn at the school during the daytime. They play a part in the Book Collection quest, listening to the books that you give to the school teacher.

Fable II Modifier

Children can be found naturally in Bowerstone Old Town, Oakfield and Bowerstone Market. They spend their time playing tag and pretending to be great heroes. They are the only type of villager who appreciate children's gifts.

Children can also be found in Westcliff after the Westcliff Development quest if you choose to become Barnum's business partner.

Children can be produced by having unprotected sex with your spouse. In order to have a child, you have to do the Come Hither, Dear expression to your wife/husband. Then, go to the bed in your house. Press A and then the screen will ask if you want protected or unprotected sex. Press unprotected and see if you have a baby carriage. Your Children will stay with your spouse as you go about your heroic acts. They will grow to be more like you in personality and alignment. Children go through two stages, Baby and Child. Babies stay in their cribs and do not move while the Child has the traits of any of the NPC children. Before the trip to the Tattered Spire they will not age from the Baby status until you return, afterwards children will age from baby to child in 30 minutes (real time). There is a limit of about 5-7 children per spouse.

Some quests involve your children. If you have children during the main storyline, your wife/husband and kid(s) can be killed and at the end of the game, you can choose love and they will come back. But if you have them after you finish the game, they will wander off and your will have to do the side quest called The Rescue. But remember to visit your family often and keep them happy or your wife/husband might divorce you and her/him and the kid(s) will leave.

  • They can be prevented by protected sex using a condom.
