Fable 2 proper, Lionhead is here to sate your curiosity and even assuage your skepticism. Eurogamer has the breakdown, but it goes something like this:
- Buy Fable 2 Pub Games (either outright, or through a pre-order)
- Play the three games contained therein to earn gold
- Merge your Pub Games gambler with your Fable 2 hero in a permanent, one-way process
- Then "gain access to all the Live Arcade gambling funds you previously accrued"
- The process works the other way around also: you can take your Fable 2 money back into Pub Games
