    There will be one missing Fable you have to go back and get in the last chapter. It involves the choices of ripping off Grens arm and choosing not to. Also in chapter 2 make sure to grab the Bluebeard file off your desk in your apartment before you talk to the pig. This is a missable Fable.

    After the credits rolled I went to 'Play Game' and chose to 'Rewind' to the final chapter of Episode 1. You can choose a separate save file as to not disrupt your own story line and choices. You'll have to replay the last section which takes place in the bar. If you missed the blackbeard file you can do the same thing and rewind to chapter 2 selecting a different save file.

    You'll need to make a decision when fighting Gren. At the end you can either choose to walk away or to rip his arm off. The second time through I ripped his arm off and unlocked the final book entry. The achievement unlocked shortly after I made the second choice, and I was able to quit out right there.

    If you walk away you unlock bigbys mercy; if you rip grens arm off you get bigbys vengeance.

    AnsonnJust a tip for everyone starting to read these solutions for the fable entries. I backtracked when I ended the game. Missed an entry in every chapter. Doing it backwards let's you choose the episode (I only had 1 save file). All the progress after that chapter will be gone. Saves you a lot of time not having to do chapters/episodes again just for 1-2 entries.

    SeaWoodStageJust a note for anyone who was, like me, initially confused on how EXACTLY to replay a chapter without affecting the decisions in your main playthrough:

    1) On the main menu, select 'Save Files'.
    2) Select whichever save file on which you've already played the relevant chapter.
    3) Select 'Play'.
    4) The menu will now let you scroll through every episode you've already played, by individual chapter. Select the chapter you want to replay, and press A for Rewind. At this point, the game will prompt you to choose a save file to copy the data to. Press A for OK, and you can THEN scroll through the available save files, and choose one other than your main file.

    I know the above is probably obvious to most people, but I was having trouble figuring out the way the save files work at first, so maybe this will help someone out there. Thanks for the guide Matt DB87, it definitely helped me mop up the Fable entries I'd missed.

    JoujouboxI was used to newer TellTale games where you can copy files from the file selection screen. Then I remember when I played The Walking Dead and wanted to check out the other endings, I rewinded and it asked me to choose a file. I wasn't file if worked the same way in The Wolf Among Us, and didn't want to risk loosing my progress. So I created a new file, skiped to episode 5 then tried to rewind and in fact it asked me to select a file. From then I just did the same with my "real" save.

    All of the fables in episode one are story related except from three.

    The first miss-able fable is in Bigby's apartment when you get there you will find a file for Bluebeard on the table, if you read it you will get a fable that could be missed by a lot of people.

    The second and third miss-able fables is found right at the end of the episode when you fight against Gren. When you get the option to rip his arm off or not, if you choose to rip it off you get one fable if you choose to leave it you get the other. I recommend choosing the one you don't want to do first then pause and quit straight after the action happened, when you re load the game it will start the game just before you get to choose again letting you choose the option you actually wanted to take and still get the achievement!

    I have included a guide to the location of all the fables below if you want any help *warning spoilers may be included in the video*
