Ok, so I was just recently playing Transformers and I was in the last level of the Decepticons campaign after I had beaten the Autobot campaign and I began to wonder, who's the guy that they reffered to as the one that began The Hashashin, I went to Answers.com as I always do to find out something and I found this: http://www.answers.com/topic/hashshashin
According to this article The Hashshashin was founded by a man called Hassan ben Sabbah and they are of Islamic origin, the reason they are called Hashshashin is because the term Hashshashin means "Hashish smoker" It says that The Hashshashin smoked Hashish to provoke "celestial visions" Now I love Assassin's Creed and I'm having a heart attack now knowing that it will be released in two months I just felt liek posting this because one I haven't posted anythign since I joined and two because it was hilarious! So yea there are some pretty interesting facts in that article.

They didn't smoke hashish, or take any other drugs. They were really called Nizari Ismailis.

Oh and.. Don't take anything as a fact from that site or wikipedia. Most of it is true, however there's pretty much stuff in there that isn't true.

It doesn't surprise me that people who are hardcore fans have actually bothered to search for more info onto what clan they'll be working for.
