Quest: Investigating the Mayor
Did we miss anything in this quest? Is there something we didn't discover? Let us know!


You'll receive this bronze quest if you agree to help the prisoner in Bowerstone North dig up information against the Mayor. Be careful though. This quest is basically an alternative to the Mayor's Invitation quest, and finishing it can prevent you from marrying the Mayor and fighting Thunder.


The prisoner will accuse the Mayor of killing her sister Amanda, and he'll suggest that you talk to Amanda's ghost to gain the details. The prisoner won't know how to "entice her out of oblivion," but he'll conjecture that her sweetheart Rhodri might know how to do it. Rhodri can be found in the southern part Barrow Fields, near the demon door.

Rhodri will tell you how he and Amanda used to meet in secret at Grey House, and how he'd signal his arrival by flashing his lantern three times at the stable. If you go over to Grey House and do that, then Amanda's ghost will appear and open the door to the cellar.

Inside the cellar, Amanda's ghost will hint about what killed her, and she'll ask you to pick up the letter she wrote so that everybody will know what happened. However, when you pick up the scrawled parchment, Lady Grey will appear, and you might have to make a choice.

If you're already married to Lady Grey, then she'll demand that you give her the letter, and the quest will end without you exposing her (and with the prisoner being excecuted). If you're not married to Lady Grey yet, then you'll be given the option of marrying her, and, if you accept, you'll end up in the middle of the Mayor's Invitation quest, at the point where you'll need to fight Thunder (see the Mayor's Invitation entry in the Fable Other Quests section for details). If you refuse the offer of marriage, then Lady Grey will disappear from the game, and you'll be able to expose her and become Mayor yourself by talking to the captain of the guards in Bowerstone North. If you become Mayor, then you'll gain access to Bowerstone Mansion, just like if you had married Lady Grey.

Note: In the cellar, along with the scrawled parchment, you can pick up a Will Master's Elixir, two health potions, and a will potion.

"But I will return one day. And I will wash away all the filth with your blood. Remember that. Hero."
