I am intrigued by the history of the game. Does anyone know , links, videos or books on the time period?

I know the kingdom of heaven the movie was just a little before these events.

there's an 80% chance that you'll find a book about the crusades in a library


and KoH isn't historically accurate if you wanted to know

No movie is lol

I was just wandering if anything in particulate came up. A good book

I hate trying to drown out all the bad books that have a lot of worthless information and not get the good ones.

A few decent books, in no perticular order:

"The Assassins and the Templars", by James Wasserman.

"The Secret order of the Assassins: The struggle of the early Nizari Isma'ilis against the islamic world", by Marshal Hodgson

"The Assassin Legends: Myths of the Isma'ilis" by Farhad Daftary

And of course...the inspiration of the game...

"Alamut" by Vladimir Bartol (though, this is fiction)

Overall Crusade era:

"The Cross and The Crescent", by Richard Fletcher

KoH is just 4 years before, not many things have changed.
