they said in AC2 he would be helping the assassins, so the templars may not be controling the animus.

no it was a book that Altair wrote and got passed down the generations until Davinci got it who passes it on to Ezio and that's how he learns how to be an assassin

Sorta, Altair wrote it after AC1 I think, and used it as a manual so the teachings and stuff wouldn't be forgotten, I believe it says so on the Xbox live marketplace description of it

After the events of AC1 Altair became the leader of the Hashashin and wrote a codex, which is a set of codes, rules, regulations, and traditions, to preserve the teachings and the ways of the brotherhood.

If you have seen Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, then the pirate code Jack's father brings out in the Bretheren Court is the perfect example for a Codex in general.

On an unrelated note; in computer terms, a codex is a set of data used for reading other types of data, i.e. an audio codex would be required for reading .wma files.

Adding billions of them on doesn't make it anymore of a question, it's just annoying and distorts the page, and it also makes you look immature, which is not Good Eats.

And PLEASE use punctuation and correct spelling. Half the time I can barely understand your questions because nearly every word is mispelled.

and, like Account_Deleted so kindly pointed out, don't spam the forum with endless question threads. When you have a question, write it down or ask in in the question thread, and if you must, post several questions in one thread instead of posting each question in multiple seperate threads.

No i liked Desmond because of him you came a lot to know about the assassins. The only thing i really hated about him was the walking.

About the why do we need desmond and Ezio thing
I think Ezio has maybe found a peace of Eden and Abstergo needs to find out were or something like that

Desmond is the main charactar,
i reckon they couldn't make Desmond's background a mystery,
so they Filled in Desmond and let Altair as a mystery,
so Desmonn hold everything together

That's cool mate, no harm done, but since it kicked up a new discussion, might as well focus on one thread instead of two.

Actually, that one is "codec" not "codex."

The rest of your post was good though.

And there's info on the codex in the PSP "Bloodlines" game when it comes out.

...the piece of eden has to do with only the holy land? I'm sorry, were you not paying any attention during AC1? The last memory shows a map of the pieces of eden scattered across the globe. Also, Lucy tells Desmond that the one at Masyaf was destroyed and that's why they need his memory (of the map) to find others.

Also, after you're out of your last memory and they're about to kill Desmond, Lucy insists he could be helpful to make sure they're not walking into a trap when the collect the pieces. So if they collect one from Italy, they would need Desmond's memory of Ezio to make sure they can actually retrieve the Piece there, or another artifact.

Ok, let me see if I can sum it up for ya.
As I understand it, Lucy says that the fight in the past between Altair and the 9 targets (who are all secretly Templars...except for Robert cuz that's not secret, but he is still a Templar) never finished. That the Templars and the Assassins continued on in other forms with the same ideals, fighting each other, the assassin's for total freedom, templars for total control. The templars are not a part of the crusader army as they would have everyone believe, but are their own group with their own very ambitious goals of making a better world by force.

Desmond was raised by modern-day assassins, and is of an assassin family (hence the genetic memories). Abstergo is secretly one of the many many companies of the modern-day templars, who have clearly been a lot more successful than the assassins. Vidic is a templar, and as such is one of the higher-ups at abstergo.

Lucy is not missing a finger. She bends it down to indicate to desmond that she is secretly with the assassins (desmond would recognize this sign because the crusades-era assassins had removed fingers and he had spent the past few days reliving the crusades).
Lucy was never a templar, but just an abstergo employee that has had it explained to her that the knights templar own the company and what their goals are.

The piece of eden creates illusions and is responsible for all the world's beliefs in religious miracles. In AC, gods are false. The piece of eden is used to control anyone who looks at it.
There are many pieces of eden (all shown on the holographic globe at the end).
The modern-day templars intend to use it with satellite technology to control everyone in the world, to make a better world.
They need desmond's memories to find one that works, because the one Al Mualim had was destroyed in the "accident" in Denver.
The modern-day templars also want to collect all of them, presumably so no one can use them to fight back the global mind-control.

It's kinda of a mind-screw, isn't it?

I'm absolutely sure Desmond will put his hood up in AC2 or AC3 and turn out to be just as skilled an assassin as his ancestors!!! Let's be honest: what do we know for sure about Desmond? All we know is what he told his capters; The Doc & Lucy. (and what they told him) Desmond said "I'm just a bartender!" as Altair would say "I'm just a monk!" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
What was that thing they said about the creed? Something about using stealth and desception, not revealing your true nature or the existence of the other assassins, until you can strike the fatal blow? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I've discovered a historical link between the crusade and the Pazzi-Family in Florence. A crusader named Pazzo (who started the Pazzi-Family) returned from the first crusade with a stone from the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre. It wouldn't suprise me they used that in AC2.

ummmm....just to let you know...you are all wrong why desmond is alive...if you hear lucy in the first one properly she sais "wait, we should keep him alive ...just in case we run into any troubles with getting the peace of eden" or around that(i havent played it in ages. so that would only buy him a little bit of time. till they found one. all they need desmond for is the peace of eden and the have a MAP to them. also if you think that maybe they are just keeping alive for fun or something well...you also wrong. if you wanna know why he is alive....and alot of other things go on this site and read the thing there. -WARNING- this is a really big spoiler, read it at your own risk...dont worry about the video, just the letter thing...whateverhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gifSpoiler (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=224320)
