We have one Bonfire of the Vanities DLC code for Xbox 360 to give away! You'll be able to enter this once the DLC launches tomorrow. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

For a chance to win it, all you need to do is post an AC or AC2 haiku. Follow the standard 5/7/5 symables format, e.g.

Hidden blade flashes
Guard draws his very last breath
Crimson stains marble

Competition closes Thursday February 18th (i.e. launch day for the DLC), at 5pm UK time. (Deadline extended! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif)

Couldn't you guys have announced this before the last day? But none the less this sounds like an awesome contest, can't wait to see the results.

It's just a very quick, small competition for a single code. I was planning to end it today as I'm not in for a few weeks tomorrow, however I'll update the post to have it end tomorrow instead and give ms_kleaneasy the code. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Nothing for Playstation Network? :-(

I'd write an awesome haiku, but am on PS3. Damn Xbox giveaways.

Give him the codex
He deciphers the message

or

Pieces of Eden
Need to discover the truth
Must find some more glyphs

It's so good, you should just give me the code now. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Follow the target

I don't have a lot of practice with haikus but here's my submission.


I shadow my prey
He will not know i am there
When i take his life

I'm stalking my prey
On high Rafters up above
Guards' blood on my hands

Target down below
Shouts of mercy go unheard
Rest in peace, Borgia

Vatican in shock
Access to the Vault is mine
Who is this Desmond?

Ezio appears
On my PS3 instead
No code will help me

Time for my revenge.

I will be patient.
I will always be watching.
I will get revenge.

I will be patient.
In the shadows I hide.

^ 2nd line is wrong. I count 6 syllables, not seven.

The 2nd line isn't technically wrong. It just depends how you pronounce it (mi-els or just miles). It's like the smile (Smi-el or smile).

There's probably a better way to write them phonetically, but I just copied someone else.

Edit:Wish I had Xbox so I could enter this. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif
