Fable 2 Guide - Expresssions

There are four areas you need to consider. Love, Renown, Hate and Humour. People like you when you perform positive or funny expressions, they appreciate your fame if you show off your trophies, but many expressions can be interpreted in different ways depending on how successfully hey are performed.

For example, the scary roar, if successful causes the target to fear you. If it fails (you can visually see the consequences of messing it up) they will merely find it funny – be aware though, it's not a particularly honourable thing for your would-be enemies to think you're a walking joke. Expressions are also extendable. This means that if you hold down the appropriate button on the D-Pad, a meter comes up. Keeping the button held until the bar turns green and then releasing it in the centre gets you the successful outcome and the best possible reaction from the expression. Releasing in yellow or red is still successful, but missing the bar altogether results in embarrassing failure. It's a risk to get the best results, but is often worth it.

Never mind...I discovered by continuing to play thru, that you actually have to EARN the 50 (good) morality points.

I have 3 different ways to get the laugh expression. Starting 50/50 going slightly evil/corrupt and working my way up to over 75% moral/pure...starting 50/50 and going moral/pure and also, going to 25% evil/corrupt to over to about 75% moral/pure. So far, nothing I have tried has gotten me the LAUGH EXPRESSION. Is there anybody who is still reading these that can help me?

easiest way to become good is to donate to the temple of light, it'll cost you a pretty penny, but you'll get what u need out of it.

while all generalist expressions can be found in the book store(and these only become avaliable as time goes on in the game) there are several expressions that you can only get by either increasing reknown, good or evil, so to get all expressions you';ve got to become very good and very evil in one playthrough(i'd recommend good first, its harder to become good that evil)
