Gortyn Out of Hand was a virtual representation of one of Kassandra's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.


Kassandra was tasked by the head of a boule to help his polis lose a war.


While at the Gortyn Code, Kassandra found an individual calling out to her.

  • Civilian: Misthios! I have a job for you.
  • Kassandra: What's going on?
  • Civilian: This job will be dangerous and could get us both killed.
  • Kassandra: All my jobs are dangerous.
  • Civilian: This job is about power—the power to rule Gortyn by starting a war.

  • Kassandra: Wars cost both drachmae and lives.
  • Civilian: I know the price. A war will be devastating, but in the end it's what's best for Gortyn.
  • Kassandra: What do you have in mind?

  • Kassandra: We can't start a war on our own - we'll need supporters and soldiers.
  • Civilian: I have support from the captain of the army and the region's upper class.
  • Kassandra: OK, then tell me your plan.

  • Civilian: I'm the head of the boule council, and according to our code, after a war is lost, the council chooses our next leader... Me.
  • Kassandra: And you need some heads to roll to get things started?
  • Civilian: Just one head... There's a visiting herald from Phaistos. No doubt here to broker peace with Gortyn.
    His murder will guarantee that war is the only option for Gortyn.
  • Kassandra: And my fee?
  • Civilian: You'll be paid very handsomely for your efforts.
  • Kassandra: I'll start the war for you. But first, I need more information.
  • Civilian: Before the war can truly begin, we'll need your help weakening Gortyn. Destroy their supplies, steal their valuables... and kill that malákas visiting herald.

(If players choose "Where is the herald?")

  • Kassandra: Where can I find the visiting herald?
  • Civilian; This "man of peace" stays at the Leader House at night, and wanders around Gortyn during the day.
    Kill him, and Gortyn will be blamed for his murder.

(If players choose "Where are the supplies?")

  • Kassandra: Tell me about the supplies I should destroy.
  • Civilian: The weapon racks and supplies in Daidalos Fort must be destroyed to ensure they don't win the war.

(If players choose "Where can I find the valuables?")

  • Kassandra: There's plenty of valuables to be found in Daidalos Fort.
  • Civilian: Stealing from there will hurt the Gortyn war effort most.

(If players choose "Leave – I have enough information.")

  • Kassandra: I'll start this war for you. I hope you know what you're doing.
  • Civilian: We've been planning this for a while. See me when everything is complete.

Kassandra departed and tracked down the herald. After killing him, she recovered a note from his body.

  • Towards a Unified Messara:
    Your aid in helping us defeat Phaistos is greatly appreciated. As promised, I will personally see to it that you are made part of my boule council. I am aware of your concern with Ptolemaios. I will get rid of him if he proves to be an obstacle. Speak of this to no one.

Kassandra travelled to Daidalos Fort to track down the Leader of Messara. Killing him, she recovered a note written to him by his Cultist son. After destroying the supplies, Kassandra left the fort and returned to the politician.

  • Kassandra: It's done. Gortyn is weak and ready for new leadership.
  • Civilian: Praise the gods! Here's a reward for your troubles.

The politician left.

  • Kassandra: After war, the boule council chooses a new leader.


Kassandra weakened Gortyn's strength to help the head of the boule council, Ptolemaios, become the city's new leader.

Behind the scenes

  • Ptolemaios becomes the new Nation Leader of Messara at the conclusion of this memory, and he will immediately take up residence in Daidalos Fort with a fresh group of bodyguards affiliated with either Athens or Sparta, depending on who controls the region. Should that faction later lose control of the region, he will be replaced by a randomly-generated leader for the opposing side, while he remains affiliated with the faction in control at the moment of his ascension.
  • Killing Ptolemaios after this memory will result in him eventually being replaced by another randomly-generated leader.
