I finished AC2 from a friend who had it on Xbox. It was so epic, one of Ubisoft's greatest success so far.

So anyway, this topic is dedicated to the creepy Gylphs which exüanded AC's backstory.
I think we could do you our own fun with this by crafting other historic and political/cultural/religious events into the AC-verse.
Sounds cool right?

In the ancient times there were some curious movements.

1.
Zarathustra declared a new religion of truth and good will, denying the other polytheistic ones and was the first man who crafted the believe of monotheism. Z. said he reached Ahura Masda(High Wisdom) and wants to share to everything who wants to know the ultimate knowledge (found the piece of eden perhaps?Or maybe the Staff?)

Wait... isnt that teh staff of the Pope?!

And isn't that the piece of Eden on it? This could explain things...

He was accepted by a lord named Goshtabse to execute the religion as an official one. He was a miracle man, declaring himself a prophet to stop supression and mindless sacrifices of that time.
Myths goes he was eaten by the fire he prayed at to reach god, but it also said that he was murdered. (by who? The first forms of Templer movement?)

The PE disappeared, but the staff remained. At the hands of the Persian kings.

2.After the death of Cyrus son Cambysis a priest declared himself as the other son Smerdis and became the new King of Persia, or so the myth goes. He later was killed by Darius as he took over.
Darius said that Smerdis was long dead before Cambysis and the imposter turned out to be a Magi, a Z. priest (Templers wanted to gain controll, but stopped by the Persian nobles?)

Do you see the Staff Darius is holding on that relief? A staff!

3.The Greeks won several times against Persia no matter how vile the outcome seemed to be(The Greeks had a piece of Eden?)

4.Alexander many years later declared war against Persia and destroyed the once an empire of wealth to create his own world empire(Was Alexander a Templar? Did he sought for the Staff?)

Maybe somewhere lies a secret...

Anyway, at 333 BC Alexander died through a fever quickly...or did he? Maybe he was murdered by an Assassin so that Staff and PE wasn't used by the wrong people?
It would explain why the world powers crumbled afterwards...

The Persian monarchs carried two artifacts. A staff, the symbol of power, and a vase with a lotus flower symbol engraved to them.

You should look for some youtube videos, there's an awesome 3D reconstruction of Persepolis,inlcuding this.

I recall that AC II already tells Us that Alexander was murdered by an Assassin "can`t remember" who poisoned him because he was a Templar. and that Darius was actually an Assassin himself but Other than my Remarks your Research is Intriguing

That Zarathrusta guy´s robes look a lot like the Assassin Robes that they wear in AC1.

Are you implying that Zarathustra was the very first Asssassin http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif!?
