Dark Parables Wiki-Current Logo Revamped-Parable Pieces

Parable Pieces are tokens or charms found throughout the Dark Parables game series that, once collected, enable the player to read the Parables that make up a large part of the lore surrounding these games.

Parable Pieces were first seen in Rise of the Snow Queen, where they took on the appearance of photos in a cameo-like frame. The next game, The Red Riding Hood Sisters, turned the pieces into small snippets of an overall image, designed to look like enamel charms. This look continued on through Ballad of Rapunzel.

These Parable Pieces act like regular inventory items in the sense that they are clearly seen and the cursor will turn into a hand when scrolled over them, indicating they can be picked up. However, they are not added to the inventory when clicked; they immediately get added to the parable collection in the back of the Detective's Journal.

With the change in developers for The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide, Parable Pieces were combined with Cursed Objects, making them morphing objects that, when clicked on, would be collected and used to complete the parables. From Goldilocks and the Fallen Star the parables were transformed into stone pieces up to The Thief and the Tinderbox with a few changes compared to blue and red pictured to portraits. Since The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide, the parables have turned into morphing objects to collect then obvious stand outs like the other games.

Unlike Cursed Objects, parable pieces generally do not need to be "activated" and are available to be collected as soon as the area where they are located is encountered by the player. There are some instances where other actions in the game may cause a parable piece to appear where it wasn't before. For example, in Rise of the Snow Queen, the ringing of the tower bell knocks a parable piece or 2 to the ground in the courtyard including a few others like in the library.
