The entirety of your game in Fable III is spent actually staving off a threat that could wipe out your entire kingdom and life as you know it, though you wouldn't suspect this from the beginning of the game where you think your greatest enemy is actually part of the kingdom itself. Managing your assets and rallying troops is actually where the game begins to get interesting, and the dangers looming over your head are what drive you to make the decisions that you do, just like you would in real life.
