maybe i am kind of tired now and i hope noone answered this, but seriously what´s with that feather thing???
you know, kill guy, ram feather into his blood, get feather back as "proof"
i mean what kind of stupid idea, is this, come on it IS naiv as hell to use that as a proof
you can aswell just TRUST the killer or let him get back one of the tings or jewlery the victim carried
so feel free to discuss

Heck, if they need proof, why doesn't Altair have the decency to carry the target's head? That way it is impossible to trick the guys...
About the feather, I don't even know why they need blood on it, since there was no way they could analyze the DNA...lol

Well, Altair's "theme" is the Bird of Prey; maybe he was told he needed proof of his kills and he thought the idea up himself. Also, the Hashashin were very concerned with their honor. Bringing a feather with the wrong guy's blood would have disgraced them, even if no one else knew.

Altair had to start over as an assassin just for not killing a guy. If it's that harsh, imagine what would happen if someone found out his target was still alive.

seriously this idea can be flawed for example you kill the guy and run away. but then your forgot to put the feather in the blood, oh well just kill a random person use his/her blood and here you have your proof.
but then again maybe the assissin's have spies to look what altair is doing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
well just something that popped in my head http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think it is a nice idea to have a bloody feather as a proof, it's cool too, but it has a downside, you can kill ANYONE and color the feather with his blood and tell your master you have killed the target...

But then if they find out that you have fooled him...

Hey Guys, its a game. You wouldnt be able to put in anyone elses blood as it would do it when they have that "Outer body experience" thing. But if were talking real life here, then it would be disrespectful to the others to not do it correctly.

this is a pretty strange thinking of the assassins....when altair closes the eyes of the guy in the very 1st trailer and this "senseless" ramming feather into blood......but yeah maybe it only seems so stupid cozwe deal with midage.....less educated people...etc

Well it would make absolutley no sense to kill another for their blood when you can easily take the blood of your original target. You're all saying it's a senseless act to bring back the feather with your victims blood on it, but the only thing senseless here is the fact that some of you suggest that you murder an insignificant human being for their blood. Absolutley nothing is accomplished by this. Your target is still alive and you killed an innocent person. Then when the Guild hears about this, you'll be in even deeper trouble, so obviously there is a valid point in the feather dipping for proof of your dead target. Think about it.

Wrong. Who would you rather kill? A civilian or a main target full of bodyguards around him, ready to kill you? Seems option #1 is easier, wouldn't you say?

Then when the rest of the assassins find out that you didn't get your target you will be dishonored and probably kicked out from the group unlike Altair who got a second chance...maybe even get chased after by fellow assassins.

Is it not possible that the DNA from the blood is the proof. There is a futuristic edge to this game remember.

The whole "feather in blood" thing is based on the honor and pride of the guild members. And yes, if they were to use a fake target's blood, the guild would find out. And something like that wouldn't be tolerated. Refusing to kill someone openly and LYING about killing your assigned target are totally different. If you say no, then you are looked down upon; if you lie, you will be caught and punished. I mean c'mon, it's a guild of assassins. You really think they won't find out? Who were the ones that sent you in the first place?

its a lil thing thats been put in the game to stop you throwing a dagger at your target from 30 feet away and doing a runner


it forces you to run up and shove the wrist blade through them, its better then a big cant kill target with throwing dagger flashing text across the screen

one thing i am asking myself now is...why using a feaher??
it can no only be because ubi thinks i is somehow cool and honor and stuff
they could also use a finger of th target (cut i off and bing it, or his tounge or his ding ****)

the_assassin_07
09-04-2007, 12:43 PM
But that would be... weird http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif. A feather is cool and it represents him anyway (birds).

regnum_07
09-07-2007, 12:32 PM
well, it might be just a case of honor for himself, he can use like 2 feathers and keep one for himself to make a colection of his kills, it looks to me like he is an assassin who is rather strickt with his work, and why feathers? might be just becues of the eagle comparing, it could very well be eagle feathers

the_assassin_07
09-07-2007, 12:36 PM
http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/agreepost.gif Yeah. The developers probably just thought: Well he represents a eagle/bird so let's just make him collect the blood of his targets on a feather!!! There you have it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

i wonder, has there ever been some sort of game where you have something similar to that feather....
something that ain´t as much evidence as a finger or a ding **** (i love this word) but just similar
i only remember one mission in manhunt where you have to bring a body but i do not think there has ever been a similar "proof thingy"

People here have brought up good ideas like the futuristic twist and DNA being proof needed in the future, for example.

Maybe Altair is sent back to this time to be a part of this society of assassin's to take out key figures in history in order for someone in the present time to rise to power and bring forth a corrupt government/rule. But Altair doesn't find out until after he's killed these 9 targets.

Truth is, we won't know until the game comes out but, I must say, I never really thought about that futuristic twist speculation...

Kaxen6
09-07-2007, 05:37 PM
Well, despite the fact no one in that time period would be able to DNA test the blood, I'd assume there'd be Jahannam to pay for lying...

But feathers go with Altair's bird theme. @_@ There's no law against video games being romantic (in the sense of things that sound cool but are relatively impractical, not in the sense of love...). Though I would assume touching someone's blood with a feather is a lot faster than hacking off their fingers, head, or ding-**** (especially if they're wearing layers over their ding-**** XD and they wore lots of layers back then!) which is probably useful for when you need to run like the wind to get away and back to the assassin's bureau/office.

Though I've always found feathers notoriously easy to lose. I loved collecting pigeon feathers and seagull feathers when I was little so I could cut them into quill-pens and write like George Washington (don't ask...). Hence my signature...

Though needing the DNA from the bloody feathers in the future is an interesting theory...

Whoah... Hold on i havent heard anything about a futureistic twist anywhere...
It has a futureistic touch, the makers dont want it to be all Middelage and stuff thats what they kinda mixed a few modernday things into it. As for the architecture of buildings, said in a Interview.

And about the feather thing, it is "kinda" a stupid question...

Its all about the pride for himself and the clan. And about the fact... you are killing important people. So if you dont and you lie, next day he is on some stage singing "I'm singing in the rain" or something... so the proof thing here, is a historical or religous thing.

im just gonna answer this real quick quick cause i only read the first two. Its cause they reported in that they died and if they have blood its sorta like the trophy to get the money and lying was unhonorable so tehy trusted their word and something bad would happen to the assassin if they died not sure what though
