Hello, amici! I am Aegis Runestone; though, I prefer to be called "Aegis." I am a relatively new member to the Brotherhood. My brother introduced me and my friends to AC1 back in 2007. We loved it, but I didn't have an Xbox 360 back then; therefore, I couldn't play it for myself. Fast forward to March, 2011, and I have an Xbox 360, AC1 and AC2. I played them back-to-back, and Assassin's Creed 2 has claimed the spot of my second favorite game of all time (my favorite game of all time being Final Fantasy 4). I also own AC Brotherhood, and AC Revelations.
I'm also a writer and web designer. I'm going to graduate from Brigham Young University in December 2013 with a degree in Technical Engineering Education (TEE), and a minor in Computer Science.
As for music, I'm a total geek. I love video game and anime music. I'm not very fond of "real" music.
I'm also a writer; I'm planning an original story based in Renassiance, Italy (similar timeframe to AC2 and Brotherhood) called The Vampiress of Italy. It starts in 1461 and ends in either 1504 or 1514 (depending on if I split it into two books or not) with a young, and very beautiful girl named Crimra. She is bitten by a vampire and turned into one against her own will. As a vampire, she has to learn how to live as one without harming innocents.
My story uses traditional vampire lore with some twists and a new magic system. There are no sparkling vampires--the sun murders them, and there will be no teenage angst (despite the fact that Crimra is 15 when she is bitten). Though, at some point, she does find a way to live in the sunlight, and I promise it won't involve sparkles.
As for writing around here; check out my Assassin's Creed Fanon! Assassin's Creed: The Legendary Hero, which won the May 2012 Featured Fanon award! I'm very grateful to everyone here for it!
Favorite (Non-AC) Characters
My favorite fictional character of all time is Sasami Masaki Jurai. (Image drawn by DaYo). I love her because of her kind, sweet, generous, and loving personalty. She has a slight streak of mischief, which is always fun. Overall, though, I like her because of said personalty traits.
My favorite video game character of all time is Cecil Harvey; the main character of Final Fantasy IV. Cecil is an inspiration; he turns from his dark ways and seeks repentance, and he finds it. At Mt.Ordeals, he becomes a Paladin, but that's not the end of his redemption. He must learn to forgive others and have the courage it takes to save his world. And he learns those things, and for that, I admire him. He's the manliest video game character in terms of personalty (in my opinion), yet not in looks.
Owned Assassin's Creed Media and Scores
Asassassin's Creed Media I Own
Assassin's Creed I - Xbox360 and PC - 7.9 (Xbox 360) - 8.1 (PC)
The original. Despite the relatively low score, it's still a fun game. Altaïr is an awesome Assassin. I wished he had a middle-eastern accent in this game because I really liked his in ACR.
Assassin's Creed I OST - 9.0
Short, but sweet. "Access the Animus" is the best fight song ever made. A lot of other tracks are good, too. Like "Acre Underworld," for example.
Assassin's Creed II - Xbox 360 - 9.2
Second favorite game of all time (my first being FF4). I've played this several times over and over again. Young Ezio is much more fun than older Ezio in my opinion. The improvements they made to the AC series in this game is one of the top reasons I love it. That, and the story is fantastic.
Assassin's Creed II OST - 9.4
A beautiful soundtrack, so some of the tracks are kinda quiet. The fight music isn't as good, but "Earth," Ezio's theme song is so awesome. It makes me feel his rise as an Assassin.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood - Xbox 360 - 8.8
I like Brotherhood. Parachutes, Poison Darts, the Crossbow, and Throwing Knives make this game loads of fun. The story is weaker than AC2, but it has some gameplay improvements that make me go back to it occasionally.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood OST - 9.8
This is the best soundtrack AC has. Notable songs are "Countdown" (my favorite), "Ezio Confronts Lucrezia" (theme song for one of my original characters), "Echoes of the Roman Ruins," "City of Rome," and gosh, I think I like all the tracks, but those are the most prominent.
Assassin's Creed: Revelations - Xbox 360 - 7.6
This has a lower score than AC1 because I've only played it once, and I have no desire to 100% synch it, unlike with Brotherhood and AC2. I'm at 96% synch, and I just don't want to finish it.
Assassin's Creed: Revelations OST - 8.9
Many will disagree with me, but the OST is so much better than the game, and it's beautiful. The only thing is that it feels out of place from the other OSTs, and not just because of location (AC1 took place in the middle east during the crusades and it feels like it blends better with AC2 and ACB's OSTs), but the way the songs are written. Still beautiful, though.
Assassin's Creed: Ascendance - 2.0
I thought this movie would be cool, but I wasted my money on it. The animations are horrible, and... it's just terrible. The only interesting thing was Cesare's rise to power. That's it.
Assassin's Creed 3 - Xbox 360 - 9.2
This has almost the same score as AC2 because well, I think it deserves it. I miss Parachutes, but pistols are fun, and I love the bow. Plus, Connor is awesome. It's not as fun as AC2, but the DLC is awesome. Wolf Cloak for the win.

"As promised, I edited the title to Red to fix the issue you noticed. I don't like the way I positioned the title though, it's really bothering me. I'm not going to go and edit it again however, making it was challenging enough, sourcing it was also a pain in the ass, and editing it again wasn't too much trouble but I don't want to edit it a third time." - SurpemeAssassin

My favorite AC characters
Ezio Auditore da Firenze - Best Assassin ever. Well, my favorite Assassin to be fair. Though, he looks too much like a wookie in Revelations, in my opinion. He looked cooler in Brotherhood and Assassin's Creed II. Ezio is more likeable than Altaïr, in my opinion, because of AC2. In AC2, we see Ezio's character develop, and it's a great character development indeed. Ezio also seems to have more of a character than Altaïr.
Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad - While I kinda dissed Altaïr above, he's still a cool character. I always liked his voice (though I wished in AC1 that he had a Middle East accent), despite it seeming out of place. Altaïr will always be a cool character to me because he was the beginning of Assassin's Creed. I love the fact that they gave him a middle-east accent in Revelations, and I thought his memories were the best.
Leonardo da Vinci - I think Leonardo is awesome just because he was an important guy in the Renaissance, yet he's your best friend. Not to mention all the gadgets he makes are cool, and he has a great personalty character-wise.
Maria Auditore - An odd addition, I have her as one of my favorites because she becomes so hardcore in Brotherhood. "Go, my son, destroy them!" is the quote I think of when I think of Maria now.
Rodrigo Borgia - Best villain (in AC2), and Anti-Hero (in ACB) ever. Well, not ever, but he's pretty cool. I loved to hate him in AC2 because he was such the evil mastermind. In Brotherhood, his character is much weaker, however, I was rooting for him at the end of Brotherhood because Cesare was just so much more evil.
Connor Kenway - He's an awesome Assassin. I like Ezio more, but Connor is plain awesome. It's a surprise to me that Connor isn't reigning in the ladies like Ezio. Why? Because Connor is a buff man who loves to help people. I guess it might be his lack of emotional reactions. Regardless, he's got the muscle, Ezio's got the charisma--they are both pretty sexy. Back to Connor, he is an awesome fighter, climber, and hunter. He's so much fun to play.
My favorite AC items
Sword of Altaïr - Coolest Assassin Sword ever, in my opinion. I love it, and its design. It's very simple, yet extremely deadly. I always loved fighting with this sword.
The Hidden Blade(s) - You can't go wrong with these. They kick butt, and cut throats. Not to mention poisoning and shooting bullets!
The Armor of Altaïr - As you can tell from the image in my userbox above, I love the Armor of Altaïr. Not only is it unbreakable and unstoppable, it's cool-looking!
Hidden Pistol - BANG! I love this weapon. Especially when there are dogs barking in the background because that gives the weapon some flavor. I note that it "aims" faster in Brotherhood than in Assassin's Creed II. I've always wondered why that is. Oh well, regardless, it's a good weapon.
The Crossbow - I fell in love with this weapon when I started using it. Weaker than the gun, but quieter and lots of fun to use!
Throwing Knives - In a previous version of my profile, I said these were useless. I retract my statement in terms of Brotherhood throwing knives. They are extremely useful, especially if you want to kill multiple guards at range at once.
Tomahawk - Dat tomahawk. At first, I thought I'd never use this weapon because I'm not a hatchet/axe fan. But the Assassin's Tomahawk was just so awesome (and the killing animations so cool) that I use it in every battle. I did get the War Tomahawk, but I ditched it in favorite of the Assassin one. Why? The War Tomahawk is ugly, that's why (I want to be able to upgrade the Assassin's Tomahawk).
Rope Darts - I love this weapon! I wish it had more uses, but it's so satisfying to hang a guard with these. I love rope darts.
