Is there any significance to the Lyre characters coming up to your face and singing to you? Are you supposed to do anything except F with them because it's fun or do they signal something. Can't figure out the purpose of them in the game for the life of me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

they are just there to replace the beggers from ac1. Just there to annoy you and blow your cover http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

As Yahtzee notes, they're simply there to annoy the [censored] out of you. It works. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It does. Payback is sweet though once you get the relevant capes and can beat the snot out of them without Notoriety going up. Oh, yes... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Pfft, forget notoriety. Just wail on them and then wail on the guards. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Am I the only one who liked the minstrels? I love how they sing some song about how awesome I am while I'm trying to discretely stalk some scumbag through the streets.

Of course, they sometimes, if they push me to far (or if they travel in packs, which multiplies their annoyance rate), meet the hard side of a broom. And there was much rejoicing.

Now that I think about it, it should be possible to pick up their instrument and wack 'em with it... That'd be great! xD

Depending on my mood... I will usually just run past them/ignore them etc. but sometimes I'll punch them if they annoy me. On the odd occasion, if I've just come out of a fight with a bunch of guards and my sword is still covered in blood, and this guy playing a lyre comes up singing to me? Yeah, that guy is getting a sword through the face.

lol that would be great. I noticed today in Forli that you can take the fishing rods away from the people fishing and wack the guards with them. Works like a spear.

Most of them get a looting and a good fist to the jaw. Unless it's the ones who are all 'ey, you do what you gotta do.' when a guard is shanked. Then, and only then, do they get paid.
