Memory?

Is this actually a memory relived through the Animus? Leonidas's children were already born. And when does Layla relive it. We immediately start up as either Alexios or Kassandra after getting the Spear. I feel like here we are actually supposed to be Leonidas instead of Layla reliving his memory through the Animus.Lacrossedeamon (talk) 20:18, October 2, 2018 (UTC)

That was my concern as well. It's only after the sequence with Leonidas that Layla is introduced and then enters the Animus, so it's no one's memories that are being relived. So, for me at least, that negated any of the "memory" categories normally used. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 22:03, October 2, 2018 (UTC)
There’s a similar issue in Syndicate with the Crawford Starrick cutscenes but I think that gets handwaved in an Abstergo document or something. Lacrossedeamon (talk) 22:29, October 2, 2018 (UTC)
It would seem to me that, since they're using Herodotus' book to supplement the corrupted genetic material, that is where the information came from. --Jasca Ducato (talk | contributions) 15:52, October 9, 2018 (UTC)

The only issue is that Layla never relives it. The sequence happens before she retrieves the spear and before she enters the Animus. I haven't run across anything in the game that suggests otherwise. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 16:17, October 9, 2018 (UTC)

Back to this point, during the Memories Awoken mission, Layla relives the Battle from Leonidas's viewpoint. In light of that, it seems at least a plausible assumption that she also relived this battle - it's just, with the devs wanting to give an impactful introduction, the sequence is "out of order" from our viewpoint.
At any rate, the matter should be decided upon before any large changes - like a redirect - are made, since players have to go through this as part of the main mission. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 15:51, October 12, 2018 (UTC)
The matter was discussed and acted upon, so please do not revert user edits without making an enquiry of the editor first. --Jasca Ducato (talk | contributions) 14:49, October 15, 2018 (UTC)
Talked about and decided where? Can you link me to said discussion? Raylan13@fandom (talk) 15:55, October 15, 2018 (UTC)
There was a informal discussion about this on Discord, but it's not fair to regular editors—most of whom don't frequent the Discord server—to be simply denied any further discussion on the matter because a few members (including myself although I don't recall there being a resolution) deliberated among themselves. I definitely think that as much as I believe that it is "safer" to assume that this battle scene was not a memory relived by Layla, Raylan's consideration is worth addressing.
As well, there was a further issue brought up which is that the transcript of this scene should still be documented in its own page like with other memory pages, rather than dissolved into this article without there being any record of it. A proposal was brought up to take it a page similar to 21st century conversations except titled 5th century BCE conversations, and the matter has not yet been settled.

It looks as if the dialogue was moved into the 21st century conversations along with Layla's from another mission. While Layla's scene certainly fits, the Battle dialogue probably shouldn't be on that page and instead on the aforementioned 5th century BCE conversations or elsewhere. Rather than risk a further edit war, I'll just leave it up to you guys ;) Raylan13@fandom (talk) 15:32, October 17, 2018 (UTC)

I've mentioned this elsewhere, but we have memory-style articles for the missions that Desmond undertook in Assassin's Creed III. We could (in my opinion, should) do the same here. Write it in the same style as a mission article, but don't call it as such. I've not played the game, so I wouldn't know what to call the article, but I'm sure someone who has played the game can come up with something. --Crimson Knight Intercom 17:05, October 15, 2018 (UTC)
