View Full Version : Live by the Creed Mission

08-24-2009, 08:28 PM
Hey, I probably sound like a dope for saying this, but what is it they want us to do for our first mission exactly?
Do they want us to write what we think about the creed, what is means to us?
Or do they want us to come up with our own creed (with our own rules) and explain why it is important to us?

I is so confused.

08-24-2009, 08:32 PM
to me it sounds like make a video pretending ur a member of the Creed and reflect on it, like the aspects and how to succeed and stuff, and it's a video not writing, although I did make a script for it

08-24-2009, 08:53 PM
yeah, I know it's a video XD lol
I'm just gonna write it down first so I'm not sitting there in front of my camera going "uh...um" over and over again XD

08-24-2009, 08:56 PM
Are you sure you won't do that even when reading a script? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Don't be alarmed if you start to cough up blood. It just means I've stabbed you for having more technology than me.

I'm right there with you, kyle. No camera. No actors. A bunch of sweet ideas, and no way to share them.

I just came up with a script. Since I can't do anything with it, maybe if I put it up here, someone with a camera can use it.

I just wrote it in like 10 minutes, so don't judge too harshly:


"What makes an assassin?

Is it the ability to hide in plain sight?
The skill to strike at any enemy, from within his very shadow?
The power to wade through my enemies, evade the wariest of men, and live to fight another day?


The true spirit of an assassin lies not in what we can do, but in WHY we do it.

I have studied the teachings of my ancestors, and have learned the ancient roots of this war.

There are those in this world with opinions so strong, who are so sure of their own righteousness, that they would steal our free will, in order to protect us from ourselves.

They think they know truth. But we know.

Nothing is true.

No man has the right to force his will on another, because all men can be wrong.

And so, all men must live free, to be able to find their own truths.
Everything MUST be permitted.

This is the lesson my ancestors taught me. This is what we fight to protect: the freedom to find our own truth."

that's a good script john, but remember that 1 page of dialogue equals about 2 minutes itself, and if ur making it like an interview ur going to have to take at least two takes since it's just u, and to NOT cross the fence line for the camera! and for the assassin, what is he wearing? is he disguised so as to hide his identity? or is he in civilian clothes?

But besides that, I just finished! But now my computer won't let me log in to youtube so now I can't upload my video to YOUTUBE! DANG IT!!!!!

08-24-2009, 11:05 PM
Thanks d1sturbedme. I was actually thinking that all of that could be said in the background, by an unseen narrator, while we're watching a modern-day assassin stalk a target through a crowd. Then he attacks at the very end.

08-24-2009, 11:19 PM
so a third person narrative? That would be good, but think of the crowd that would have to be hired for such a thing, at least 20 people to walk around and continuosly change costumes and then u need five dollars to make fake blood for the attack as well as a stunt knife, sorry, not trying to bring ur idea down, just the director in me analyzing it, I used to make these mistakes ALL the time and then get totally bummed when I realised it couldn't happen

08-25-2009, 01:48 AM
Do we have to make a video?? I have no way of doing that, and my father will never let me borrow his one. -_-

Can't I get someone else to do it for me?? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

08-25-2009, 07:08 AM
Ubi is just asking for a recording, not a full on narrative XD

08-25-2009, 07:45 AM
It doesn't make sense that it couldn't be submited in writing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

disturbedme, I'm not saying I could do it, I'm just sharing an idea I had that I liked.

I actually go to a pretty big college, so I wasn't worried about crowds. I figured that I'd just need 2 real "actors," one with a white hoodie, and one with "modern templar" clothes (...A suit with a red tie? IDK).

I'd just show the templar walking, passing an assassin hiding behind a newspaper or something, the assassin stalking the templar through the crowds (maybe some little flash-forward clips of the assassin's attack and escape), then show the assassin sprint up behind, step up onto something and jump off for some air, And go black just as the assassin strikes, with that "shank" sound effect from the game.

...I need to storyboard this...

08-25-2009, 09:35 PM
Storyboard!? Can I draw up a draft!? PLEASE!!!! but if u want to know what might be a good modern templar idea, think of the 3 guys from the end of the game, all business people, yet I think 2 of them were bald, but u would want them wearing SOMETHING templar, like a necklace a pendant, a tattoo or something along those lines

08-25-2009, 09:39 PM
Reading this I get the image of John sitting on a throne stroking his chin and looking up to his left while Disturbedme paces back and forth ranting very quickly. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

08-25-2009, 09:44 PM
lol, it's true I pace a LOT, but I wouldn't do it with him on a throne, not before an... accident happens http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif {nothing is true, everything is permitted}

08-25-2009, 09:48 PM
What was the "accident"? Did you fall on it? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

08-25-2009, 09:50 PM
let's just say acme isn't the only one with giant pianos and loose strings holding them lol, but back on topic, have any of u other guys started, like uchihaKarasu?

08-25-2009, 09:52 PM
lol if you want to, feel free. Want me to draw one too? We can compare...

lolz @ kyle.

...why a throne??? I'm not complaining, but... random :P

What accident would happen, disturbedme? Are you plotting a shanking? Shame on you :P

08-25-2009, 09:54 PM
sure, I'll have one drawn up by tommorow morning, and no not a shanking, a piano crash, there's a DIFFERENCE!>_<

08-25-2009, 09:57 PM
Ok now I'm confused. I feel like you didn't smell what I was cooking. Unless I pervert your piano comment. Then it all makes perfect sense.

08-25-2009, 10:01 PM
u need to start seeing inbetween the lines kyle, he would expect a shanking or a perverted piano, but NEVER a CRASHING piano!

08-25-2009, 10:06 PM
lol why so much hatred and plotting guys??? I just want to make cool vids!!!

08-25-2009, 10:07 PM
Ok now I'm even more confused.

Let me just "expose"(great word choice) what I was talking about.
<span class="ev_code_WHITE">I'm talking about his "hidden blade"</span>
P.S. "inbetween" is two words (in between). Work on supressing that redneck. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif .....Cleatus.
