Albion Map Cipher

Albion Map Cipher is the secret message of developers, encoded on the map of Albion in Fable Anniversary.

As it is known, there was no map text in Fable: The Lost Chapters, but in Anniversary the map was widened and supplemented by the message (it consists of 2 blocks: 3 paragraphs in the first and 1 in the second).

The message is charactetized by many orthographic mistakes (which do not prevent understanding), also there are no punctuation marks.

Next you may read the translation to English (corrected and original; in Russian version of this page we also include Russian version). In the variant without mistakes all wrong and revised by redaction letter highlighted by bold font and lines broke down a bit differently and united into ended phrases (paragraphs are saved). Exprerienced translators will agree, that the text still contains disputable words, and how to translate them correctly is an open question (controversial, in our opinion, places marked by [c] symbol).

The message was gathered by FRC members Evgeny Zakkar and Torionel with using the picture of Albion alphabet, that was published before in side source by unknown person.

Original message without mistakes

1st paragraph

Map making takes more than a steady hand, it demands nerves of steel.

The modern map maker must track through hobbe infested forest, sail pirate controlled seas, battle bandits and Hollowmen, wasp queens and kraken.

Spy dangers meant no true map of Albion existed until John Steed undertook his journey across Albion drawing its hills and woods and recording its towns, ins, brothels and cheese makers.

2nd paragraph

Sadly John Steed never saw the success of his great work.

You're picture map of mighty Albion.

Shorty after completing the map John was killed in a duel, arising Brom the use of his angles over sextant.

It fell to John's wife Michelle to publish her in guide to Albion. This early publishing smash hat in perm invided the continent tien of worse word through the founding of Albion's cartographer guild.

3rd paragraph

This map is as close to the original as we could produce, and whilst there have also been many doubts cast on the it's accuracy.

Some claim the drawing of the kraken merely represents terror incognito and that John's constant told of the Sandgoose are the mere ravings of deluded mad man.

For now the picture map of mighty Albion remains Albion's most accurate piece of mapmading.

And we can only wonder what secrets hid between the covers of John Steed's uncompleted memoir?

John Steed wanderlust a traveller's guide to Albions brothels.

4th paragraph

You're picture map of mighty Albion by John Steed.

Be aware, traveller, this drawing is smaller than the real world, Oakvale and Barrrow Fields might look less than a chicken egg apart, but the actual road is several miles and about, (Прим. глав. ред. - возможен также вариант "above") forests, hills and monsters aren't (Прим. глав. ред. - or "are not", it doesn't matter.) scale neither, and some stuff might youre been added where it isn't on, and The River at the bottom is probably been stand.
