In another topic, it was mention how cool it would be to get a letter with Ezio's wax seal on it saying something along the lines of; "The time has come, you shall join the order". This developed into a discussion about starting an Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Alternate Reality Game (ARG).

For all of you who do not know what an ARG is, this article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternate_reality_game) will help you.

Simply, you pretend it is real. You draw the players in and scatter clues everywhere. The letters with the Assassin's Seal would just be the start.

This topic can be used to sign up, and a private thread will be created so as not to spoil all of the secrets.

Please do not post ideas here if you wish to join, as that defeats the point of the secrecy! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

People willing to get involved:

Neither have I http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I was thinking more like the GK Nova one that is going on for Call of Duty: Black Ops. A few who know what is happening, a few people who get the info, and the community to decode it.

If Ubi gives us the thumbs up (Mr_Shade said he would pass it along if we got an idea together), we could enlist some Ubisoft employees to help, as they have more contacts than us.

Also, I'm in England, you're in Australia, so get an American and we can run this around the clock!

I need people to understand it before joining :P

Here is an example,

A person gives a briefcase to an unsuspecting forum member, maybe at an AC:B event, and it contains documents, maybe from Abstergo or the Assassins. This contains clues to Brotherhood and the rest of the mystery of Assassin's Creed. They post the info on the forums, and the community get together to solve it, learning about the game and solving the mystery.

Of course, it isn't just live drops, there are many other ways to do it.

including emails, snail mails and the like, it can be interesting. I participated in the vista one with Loki, and in the Halo3 one, thos were kinda fun. I'm in the US but work nights

Actually there is a forum for fans of ARG's and if we came up with one, that would be a nearly perfect place to introduce it. If anyone's interested, shoot me a pm since I'm not sure I can directly link to them

One of the first things we'll need to figure out is what look we would be going for. Assassin's Order from the 1500's or Abstergo Trainees. It's something we should figure out.

At this point I'm going to recommend we start a private topic for this because it sounds like enough people are interested in working this and it looks like we're getting to the discion and planning stages which we need to keep on the dl if this is gonna be any fun for the participants

True... We need to figure out a way to do this. Quietly

Me, Account_Deleted, and BK-110 already have a private topic where we are throwing ideas around. We have come to the conclusion we can't carry it on without information form Ubisoft that we could reveal as the ARG goes on.

Therefore, most of the work is on hold until we hear back from Ubisoft, as if they say no, we can't carry on.

Yeah we would definately need info from ubi, or at least permission and some background stuff to use. And thank you so very much for including those of us who offered to help, especially since I know I've sent some potential ideas. It's gratifying to receive any acknowledgment

I started the topic before you asked to be signed up, and Account_Deleted was in the old thread. Also, you can't add people to a current private thread.

It's pointless to make a new private thread until we know for sure if we can carry on or not.

If we do get permission, the people with good ideas will be invited to a thread where we can all discuss ideas.

Seems a bit pointless spending ages on something that might not happen.

I appologise, I wasn't aware that a private topic couldn't have other participants added. And I took your phrasing to indicate a lack of concern for ideas that others might have. I appologise for the attitude, I've not been sleeping well lately, so coupled with my misperceptions I took offense. I hope that you weren't offended.

It's fine, I'm not offended, on the contrary, I'm glad you feel strongly about this, it means you would not give up on it easily. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I am just waiting for what Ubisoft have to say now, and will inform you of their decision when I receive it.
