Okay, say you were in the 12th century and you seen what was going on with all the people getting executed by getting hanged,etc. Say you had the chance to help take care of these so called "holy" warriors for what there doing to this world just like in the game. Would you become an assassin and live wealthy by helping the people or carry on in those times with normal jobs, army, etc?

i think it would depend on how commited i was on my views...like if i was raised to be extremely patriotic i might just become an assassin...but if i was just another person who felt it was out of their power to do something i would most likely just let things be

i see exactly what you mean and i would probobly be the same. it would depend on peoples views and so on. And the way i,m raised today i could never kill anyone for anything i just have not got the balls to. But i see what you mean if i was raised in a certain way in those times.

yeah i mean if i was living back then and was the same person i am now, i know i could never go as far as end someone's life for a cause like that. but i know that i wouldnt just keep to myself...id probably complain and things like that but never stab someone in the neck with a hidden blade

I would not join the Assassins, because I don't think killing is right, but I have to admit that what the assassins were doing was right. They had to kill to save more lives. I would probably just become a merchant that sells fruit... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Become wealthy? Well, actually, guys like Altair dont get money for killing people, they kill because they believe in something, they aren't assassins fro hire.

You'd be doing what your parentage dictated according to your class and station. Not much upward mobility back then, unless you were a soldier and were very, very lucky.

<span class="ev_code_GREY">If anyone chose to be an assassin people would laugh at them, they would think you're a moron and you wouldn't be allowed to join, they have no use for idiots...
No one becomes an assassin if by choice, it's a necessity for the greater good, the people who were assassin's would rather have been farmers or traders any day.

The assassin's needed people with clear heads. Anyone who wants to commit murder is out of their mind and are more of a risk than an asset.

(Also, in most countries there is no such thing as patriotism, their loyalties lie with their families and not with some people they've never met who decided to dictate their lives)</span>

Ok, what would you be Entropy777? i can see you standing in a street yelling at people, shouting that they are walking wrong, or talking with difficulty, or telling people how to live their lives. if you saw Altiar doing an assassanationi'm sure you would run up to him and tell him he's doing everything wrong. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

This is a fun topic, it dosnt matter if we all wanted to become assassins, we are just doing this for fun, we dont need to be corrected and told otherwise if what we wanna do is wrong or impossible, thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

If i had muslim blood in me i would hope that i had some connection to the assassins. If i didnt i would be descret about finding the group and joining to save my land. If i was a Christian in England i would be in the army serving my country and my people and my "god" who would approve of me killing people for land. If any of you people wouldnt be a soldier back then, than you would be a servant or something low like that. There is no way in hell i would be someones dog so i would fight!

<span class="ev_code_GREY">Just saying, if you lived in the 12th century you'd have to act it, they'd never let you join the assassin's because
"is so freeking kewl!!!lolol i r assa gonn kill u al!!!11111oneone!!11eleven!switchblade..."
And you're damn straight I would be a real bastard there too, but atleast I wouldn't be hanged as a murderer.

Remember that back then they didn't need proof or evidence, if someone said they saw you kill a man you're going to be dancing at the end of a rope pretty soon.</span>

<span class="ev_code_GREY">Yes, thankfully there were less morons back in those days... People don't evolve, they degrade and become more and more worthless.
Nowadays they are just useless peices of meat staggering around their pointless shallow lives without cause nor goal, trying to justify their lives with dominion over others.

Point im trying to make = You wouldn't think an Assassin was a step up in the world, nor would you think it was a cool or logical choice for a profession.
With a more spiritual people who belived strongly in the teachings, most would die before comitting murder, because murder means you go to Gehenna.</span>

Probably just try and stay out of everyone's way so I don't get killed, but still make enough money to live, somehow. Maybe I could be an innkeeper. That always sounds fun in books.

If I was lucky I would become pope . The youngest pope was about 18 I belive. If not, then maybe I could rise up the church hierarchy. Even being a bishop would probably make me a very wealthy man. Since the only church in Western Europe was the RCC.

I could be the guy who gives permission for a crusade. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

If I wasn't able to be in church hierarchy I would probably be a merchant in a city like Paris or London.

I'd kill everyone I saw wearing a cross. Preacher, Pauper, Prince, Soldier. It wouldn't matter. To have a chance to quell the most virulent ways of thinking and acting before they caught the world up in a chokehold of lies, bigotry and injustice would be the greatest honor one could have bestowed upon them.

Less morons back then? So the fact that everything they couldn't understand from an eclipse to a cold was attributed to "God" or "Satan" makes them intelligent? These people were some of the most brutal, delusional and downright stupidest the world has ever seen. And c'mon!! They never even thought to check the rooftop gardens for Altair!!!!
