So it's a hooded figure with a sword and a bird. Right then. It's either Mordecai from Borderlands or that-guy-whose-name-I-can-never-remember from Assassin's Creed

I remember (way back when) that the guy who designed the crests was a traceur. He said something like the Assassin crest was representative of what he felt like when he was free-running--like he was about to turn into a bird and take flight.

Hi, this is completely off topic, but what is our guild crest meant to be? I see it as a sort of bird-type-thing with an elephant's head. Please tell me I'm wrong, because that would make us elephant-birds, and I'm not happy with that.

 

But ... but ... elephant birds are AWESOME!

Superhero movies as inspiration are cool. But there is a down side. Took my wife to see the new captain America film, and she's decided that I should aim to look like him. Not an impossible standard to reach or anything...

 

I hear you on that one, I used to aim to be like Chris Hemsworth/Thor for quite a bit, now I'm thinking I might just slowly slowly slowly get to something vaguely like that.... When I win the lottery and can employ a personal trainer 24/7!

Ezio! Over here!

I recently replayed Assassin's Creed 2 and there's this one part, for those of you that still remember: On your way to Venice you do that horse carriage ride thingy, then go through a swamped area to a harbour to board a ship that brings you to Venice. And while you're there and doing your quests and updating the map, and Leonardo just keeps yelling "Ezio! Over here!" and does NOT stop. That made me so mad :D

You know, the Assassin's Crest can also be Sephiroth's One-Winged Angel form from Final Fantasy VII

It does kind of look that way. I always thought of Dar and his eagle Sharak whenever I saw it.

And because I'm feeling so generous and with the help of Vengefulpear, here's the first glance at the new edition of our Assassin Academy - also known as 6-week-long skill challenge!

Come and find out what we're trying to achieve this challenge, and keep an eye out for the first weekly mini-challenge to figure out which enemy we're facing this time, and how we can prepare for it!

I agree with Red, somehow that is what I associated the crest with

I like you already ^_^

Hey, Question:

 

Somewhere on this magnificent website, is there a guide/introduction to using the post creator/editor?

You know like how to add an image, resize it, change formats, etc and etc...

If there is, I haven't seen it. Mostly I learned by trial and error. Lots of error.
