Description of Fables & Fiends: The Legend of Kyrandia - Book One

Arguably among the best adventure games series ever, Kyrandia games tell the stories set in the fantasy land of Kyrandia, told from 3 different perspectives: Brandon (a hero chosen to save the land), Zanthia (a Royal Mystic searching for the Anchor Stone to save Kyrandia from disappearing), and Malcolm (the evil jester from the first 2 games out to get his revenge).

Each game is better than the last, despite the annoying random elements in some puzzles which can only be solved through tenacious trial-and-error. Great games nonetheless, with a gentle sense of humor, Westwood's acclaimed graphics and user-friendly interface, and great music.

Awesome game, highly recommend using the Roland MT-32 with this to hear the music scores in it's full MIDI glory ;)

Partial walkthrough here. Pick it up at GOG if it's got bugs :)

I solved my earlier issue and successfully installed the game, though I cannot hear any voices. How do I fix it so that I hear the voice actor's speak the dialog without having to read through all the text?

I cannot even install it! The game says that it is incompatible with the version of Windows I am running and to contact the software publisher. I cannot find an option to even choose whether to download a 32 bit or 64 bit version. There is just the one download tab. Please help if possible.

"Find the page with this symbol and enter word 7 on line 1."
Anyone have the word needed to continue?

One of the best fantasy adventures I've ever played. Not a difficult game at all, but very engaging and fun. A must-play!
