I know the Assassins don't receive a document of their initiation, but I think it'd be cool to make one for a gift. I'm a calligraphy artist and know how to work with vellum and parchment, but I don't know the games all that well. Can I ask for help with canon details? This is what I am putting on the scroll so far:
*******
symbol of creed

Where other men blindly follow the truth, remember
Nothing is true
Where other men are limited by morality or law, remember
Everything is permitted
We work in the dark to serve the light. We are Assassins

Herewith do we welcome
name
into our Brotherhood

May he live by our Creed and stay his blade from the flesh of the innocent
May he disappear from all eyes and yet remain in plain sight
May he suffer no compromise to the Brotherhood, even by his own hand.
********

I'm trying to keep it general so it could span across any of the games, but no idea who to sign it from. Thinking Hassan-i Sabbah, since he was the first, and add an 'even in death' instead of 'signed'.
Also, would it be cooler if it was a document for a Master Assassin? Or would that not make sense, considering they've been living all this stuff already?

Any help/advice/suggestions are very welcome and much appreciated. If it turns out well I'll upload a picture :)

It seems alright, sign it by Altair or Al Mualim.

Why them? Sign it by whoever the hell you want it to be signed.

The beginning of that scroll is from Brotherhood, Ezio says it. According to you it should be Ezio.

Nice idea, just don't forget to mention the three tenants of the creed. The are important to the Assassin Order. :)

Just have Desmond sign it.

He can't.... he's dead.... Why do people keep on about him being still alive.... :)

The other characters can't sign it either then. They're all dead.

Seems great, put it signed from whoever you want but maybe an Assassin would be better.

Thanks everyone!
Here's the finished product. I forgot to take a picture without his name, but he insisted I still put it up. Thanks again for the help - I ended up signing it as Ezio.
