ok so i think some of you already know this but this is for those who dont

During the American Revolution, the Assassin Connor Kenway was able to recruit various citizens to his cause. However, he was only able to recruit up to six Apprentices. Each recruit had their own backstory and unique abilities, such as assassinating a specific individual, starting a riot to distract the enemies and allow Connor to slip by, or infiltrating an enemy guard post in disguise.

So much better then 15 with no Character what so ever...

Revelations was Kinda on the right track with the recruits..

I prefer that, I'd rather have a lower number of apprentices with better quality rather than have a larger number of apprentices with less quality.

here's one of the 1st recruits missions
Stephane Chapheau was a french taverner in Boston during the American Revolutionary War (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/American_Revolutionary_War). He was aided by the Assassin (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Assassin) Connor Kenway (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Connor_Kenway) when the British forces (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/British_Army) attempted to collect taxes from him, and was later recruited by Connor as an apprentice (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Apprentices)

It sounds like these will be actual characters that you recruit, instead of ones with randomly generated names.

This is how it should of been for Brotherhood, because we lacked the recruits that Ezio trained in the book.

Yes, I'm glad they're all going to be legitimate characters this time.

I'm actually kind of bothered by this mission. So... the guys were just doing their job, trying to collect the guy's taxes, and then he attacks them. It's not like they came bashing down his door and roughing him up. He just charged out the door and started wailing on them, and Connor joins in and murders them all? Erm... OK. Maybe there's more to it than we've been shown, but it seems kind of sketchy at the moment.

I'm wondering if they can all die if they are legitimate characters in the story. I like that have real stories this time and we can actually get to know them better but if that's true and they all die, how does that work? I guess we will find out in 30 days!

They'll probably just do it like they did in Revelations when your den masters failed a contract. Instead of "killing" them, they just got injured and went dark on your menu for a while until they healed.

I think it's one of those 'Connor didnt do the right thing moments' because William Johnson (that was his henchmen) was trying to get his village destroyed or something, and connor wanted revenge. so he used stephane to get through to willy more. you see (:

Well they did try to force a man that has been already paying overpriced taxes and they were going to kick him out of his own house. Then they started to break his windows, i'm pretty sure everyone here would defend their property at that point. And the redguards were going to shoot him if you watch the guards behind Connor

hmm yeah that's a good idea.

Plus, I'm fairly sure they were paying taxes for things that didn't even apply to the colonists.

Yeah, but the tax collectors didn't come up with that, they were just some guys on the King's payroll. That's like blaming the cops for the fact that it's illegal to buy 24 oz sodas in New York.

Yea, but the tax collectors could quit their job, that and tax collectors normally ask for more money than is needed as a nice tip for them anyway. (At least, in colonial times and before, there's a reason why everyone hated them)

It's a gray area morally.

Realistically, the colonists were paying 1.25 per YEAR in taxes which was considerably lower than what people were paying in Britain at the time. All the shouts of taxation without representation and all the stamp act and the Boston tea party, they were all just excuses to come up with a reason to push the English out of the country. If you really get into the history, you will see the Revolution had little to do with taxes and a lot to do with the colonials just wanting their own country free from British rule.

That particular mission [SPOLER ALERT, SORT OF] Stephane seeks revenge on the people who he thinks ransacked his tavern. Connor accompanies him to where the enraged Stephane thinks he's found the culprits. Stephane charges into the crowd pushing aside people and buries a cleaver into the pictured guys clavicle, who then tells Stephane that he's not even the right person he should be chopping up. Connor walks up, calmly tells Stephane to end his suffering after putting a hand on his shoulders, and walks away.

I like this idea with backstory, you'd actually be able to feel sad when one of your assassins dies.

Although, the fans over at DeviantArt are going to be pissed that they cannot make up their own backstorys this time.

Connor sends him to assassinate him though. It's not like he just charged off in a rage.

Well, I'm pretty sure both of those happened at the same time. All Connor said was create a window. That dude blew the window out of the frame lol.

One thing I don't like about the killing in this game, which i hope they can fix in the next game, is the blood work. The apprentice rammed his cleaver into the guys shoulder and then blood magically appeared all over his clothes. I'd like realistic blood in the next game, that actually could add more to the game than just immersion. If you kill a guard on a slanted rooftop and his blood starts to spill over onto the street then guards on the street could notice it and check it out.

Eh. I abandoned Skyrim because trees kept popping out of nowhere in front of me and distracted the living hell out of me. This blood magic I can live with for some reason. Probably because I didn't notice it until you said something and I watched for it 3 times.

When I get angry with my neighbour, its called a feud.
When Connor gets angry with his neighbour, its called the Boston Tea Party.
