Probably done to death but:

Assassins symbol:

Free Mason symbol:

If you overlay the two symbols and drop the square a bit the two share the same basic shape.

Coincidence? Ubisoft employee inspired by the freemason symbol (free mason themselves maybe?) or subtle link to be explored later in the saga? (boy wouldn’t that be interesting, considering the one puzzle with Washington).

According to a lot of Illuminati conspiracy theorists, Masons own most aspects of the entertainment industry, including video games.
So apparently either Patrice Desilets or Corey May is a Mason. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I don't really consider the assassins to be the good guys.
Both Al Maulim and Altair used the crap out of the apple for their own sake.
There is evil, and then the lesser of two evils. Until something better gets off its butt and stands up to the call. lol

Well, Al Mualim's motive was surprisingly obvious. "Why did you THINK I started a freaking cult of trained killers? To feed the poor?"

Though Neo Age's observation reminds me of the famous Jac the Ripper theory wherein the Queen ordered Freemason assassins to remove a threat to the Crown.

Perhaps you're familiar with Alan Moore's graphic novel From Hell?

WAS Jack the Ripper a rogue Assassin? Hmm...?

If anything, I think the Templars are closer to Free Masons.

In the game the majority of the US Presidents are seen as Templars, including Abraham Lincoln.

Lincoln was a Free Mason

Actually, the implication was that John Wilkes Booth was a Templar, not Lincoln. Booth himself was a member of a seperate secret society, the Knights of the Golden Circle.

They were merely seen with a POE and possession of a POE doesnt mean they were templars.

Considering many of the founding fathers were free masons and they rebeled against a monarchy and came up with the concepts of a seperation of church and state and religous tollerance. Considering what the templars want those seem to be ideals completely contrary to their intentions.

I must heartily disagree. The original Templars' goals were to FREE the Holy Land from the 'tyranny of faith' and create a New World. Sound familiar?

How was Altair using the Apple for his own sake? He never set out to conquer the world. He made the world a better place until he died.

Good point on the similarity between the assassins symbol and the freemasons compass symbol. I thought that when I first seen it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

You may have also noticed the Templar cross used in many circumstances today, including freemasonry, where it appears on a badge.
