Assassination

Just wondering, but why is this guy's assassination section so detailed? Altair "stealthily penetrated" the fortress? "... his throat punctured severely by the Assassin's steel blade."? Collinsj 18:59, April 20, 2011 (UTC)

WikiProjects Targets picture

I thought that was a cool fact, that is interesting, and should constitute as a trivia bullet...no? - Dop3man 80 16:57, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Historical Accuracy of Assassin's Creed

"Assassin's Creed producer Jade Raymond revealed that they had originally planned to have Conrad of Montferrat in the game. Their research indicated that he wasn't killed in 1191, but William, Conrad's father, was located in Acre in the same period. In order to maintain the historical accuracy of the project, William was inserted into the game in his stead."

Is this trivia actually true? If the producers cared so much about historical accuracy, then why Robert de Sablé died in 1191 in the game, instead of 1193, why Garnier de Naplouse didn't take part to the battle of Arsuf and why the Knights Teutonic are already so powerful in the game?

I think that someone should check if this trivia is actually true.

It’s from an academic paper from Simon Fraser University whose authors interviewed her as part of their research. Lacrossedeamon (talk)


Is this paper available online? Due to the other historical errors in the game it seems unbelievable that the producers choose William instead of Conrad for the sake of historical accuracy. By the way, only now I realize that I wrote 1991 and 1993 instead of 1191 and 1193.  Templar Monster Hunter (talk) 04:33, January 1, 2020 (UTC)
