Japanese class sure is paying off, I can read all the Hiragana and Katana, but not Kanji yet.

They're both good, I'm confused on what the last one is though...

Maybe the assassins arriving? No clue what so ever.

Petra would be cool.

The second image looks like Jerusalem to me. I climbed that domed building... I remember I had a little crisis about climbing it because I had the yellow eye icon which I assumed meant don't do anything crazy and then circled the building ten times trying to find a sneaky method... and then I finally decided to shimmy up in plain sight.

edit: Oh wait there's four pictures on the prologue... or are you asking about all the Japanese on the second link?

My Japanese sucks... it's like the time is... 12th century... something something... King Richard... something something Islam's something... Saladin...

xD God, I only remember Katakana...

Though I never got an answer on what the meaning of the assassins jumping off of Masyaf was... that really bugs me...

Here's what I think about the picture with the Assassin jumping of off Masyaf.

If you compare the costume of the guy standing on the ledge with his arm out and the eagle standing on his shoulder to the screenshots of Al-Mualim (acrabic word for the teacher) you will notice that they are wearing the same outift. I believe this is probably the same guy.

As far as the Assassin jumping off the ledge of Masyaf, he could be learning how to do "the leap of faith". You never know there could be some hay at the bottom waiting for him.

from the looks of it "al-mualim" is pointin his arm out where the assasin is jumping as if he is ordering him to do it. Another clue could be the Eagle. In the Game anywhere in the high points where there is an eagle circling the building means that you can perform th eleap of faith from the top of that building.

Just some thoughts, hopefully this answers any unanswered questions.

Oh really? Do u have a scaned copy of it? It would be neat to analyze it and figure out what they might actually be doing.

WAY TOO EXCITED ABOUT HIS GAME

Looks like it would be! Could be anywhere though, but I doubt it since the assasin's hood is off and his face is showing. You never know.

I do not have a scanned copy mainly because my scanner is broken, but I'll try to get my hands on my sisters digital camera and take a pic of it, haha.

I know what their doing dont any of ye remember an interview where Jade says that the assassins were command to jump to their deaths to show the amount of power the rulers had.Then Jade said this is were the idea for the leap of faith came from because Jade said her and the team came up with an idea that it was a con to fool people in believing they had this must power over the assassins but instead of dieing the assassins landed in a cart of hay.Cant anyone remember this?

ZAIN: that would be awesome if you could get a pic, thanks for doing that.

B-busher: I have never heard that in any interview or video: If you could get me a link that would be awesome.

Thanks to both of you

i remember that! thanx b-busher. that would make for awkward moments in the game....one minute your talking to another assassin, and another he is dead because there leader told him to jump of the ledge. lol http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Notice the assassins jumping off on the left and the right. xD

WOW ZAIN that was quick thanks,

Well I can definatly say that it is Masyaf for sure. It has the exact same look in the surrounding areas of the fortress as the concept art images released a while ago by UBI. AS far as the assassins leapin to their "death" I have no idea whats going on there. I need to take a closer look and give u guys/girls the lowdown on what i can make of it.

10-31-2007, 05:15 PM
Well I do remember in a past interview Jade said that the Assassin leader would tell the assassins to jump off to their death and when they die they'll be in paradise just to show other people how much power they had over the Assassins.. but I don't see anyone standing next to the Assassin leader to show anyone how much power he has over them.. Maybe he was just bored? rofl

In addition to assassins jumping off, the symbols on the flags are rather interesting.

I think its pretty obvious what this picture is about. The guy pointing is the assassin leader and as we all know masyaf is the training center, so hes training other assassins to do the leap of faith, theres probably hay at the bottom of the wall.

As for the symbols on the flag, i guess its the assassins logo lol. Thx kaxen for spotting that ive seen this pic before and totally overlooked the flags, you are very perceptive! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

The guy pointing is definitely the leader. I don't think they keep hay off the side of their fortress. At least, not in the game, as far as I saw...

But the flags. The symbol doesn't look like the assassin symbol like on the Assassin's Creed logo. It's an eight-pointed star in a circle with a symbol that looks vaguely like a biohazard sign to me. This eight-pointed star is also on the cover of the leaked Assassin's Creed comic. Except on the comic, it has the assassin symbol on the inside of the star instead.

"I don't think they keep hay off the side of their fortress. At least, not in the game, as far as I saw..."-kaxen


Well jade herself said something like "the assassins used deception as a tool, like the leap of faith that makes others think they have no fear" or something to that effect. Ill look for the video she said it in.

edit: Found it, frag dolls interview. http://www.gametrailers.com/player/26613.html Its at about the 5 minute mark.
