Assassins Creed: Throughout Time



Game Idea


In this game Players will have the option to play across multiple time lines through a modern day Animus plot. What I mean by that is that my current plan is to run three rooms in different time periods. Then a modern room to tie it all together. These three time periods will be new time periods in the Assassins Creed Universe IE times the main games have never explored. Times that I would like your guys help deciding. There's a rich universe to explore here and the plan is to create an engaging narrative that every one will have fun with.

NOTE: You do not have to play in all three time lines! I thought I would offer the multiple time line angle because I know there are a great many time lines that interest people in the Assassins Creed Universe. If you only want to play in one time line then fine. However I expect everyone to have a presence in the modern area as well.

What I mean by that is that I'd like to keep the set up similar to the games. The Animus and a group of people exploring the past of the Creed/Templar war. I have an idea on how to tie it together and make it interesting that I will include in the Plot Synopsis. So if I haven't lost you yet read on.





Plot Synopsis

Modern Day Element

For the modern day element my thought involved a newly discovered Piece of Eden. The Assassins recently discovered it and when the lead Assassin who tracked it touched it he received a vision of a group of people would would help him complete the artifact. These people, and their ancestors are the key to finding the rest of the artifact. To that effect the Assassins have approached them offered their family protection from the Templar while they find the pieces of the artifact. The people that artifact are tied to feel a connection to it and a draw they can't ignore. The Templar's are right on the Assassins trail as well and can be expected as an enemy faction in the game.

This is by no means "set" in stone. If any one has an idea or better concept for the modern day elements please let me know. Something else that
As for the places the Animus will take you...


.

Time Periods Up For Grabs

Just a few thoughts on the two (Or Three) Time Periods we might find ourselves in.

1. The Old West

2. Feudal Japan

3. Open To Input (Throw one at the group and we'll vote on it!)

4.Norse/Viking Times

5. World War 2



FAQ

Can I play A Templar?

Yes! If you want to play a Templar hunting the assassins in either the modern day or the past plot threads then let me know. I can figure out a way to work it in and we can go from there.

Can I forgo the modern day stuff?

I will take that on a case by case basis. If you want to play someone specific to one time period and nothing more we might be able to work something out.

Will this by a system game?

Nope, free form sandbox.

Do I need to participate in every time period?

No you do not. If you only want to play only one time period and the modern time frame that is fine as well.

Personality and History

Personality

Calm and calculating Matt (formal name of Mathew) takes his role in the brother hood seriously. He is calm and decisive and makes a point of acting only when he's fully thought things through. He is a kind man even though he maintains a sort of professional distance from his students and the rest of the Order. That being said he does see the place as a place of family and tries to help everyone of his students. Being kind and caring are two things he stresses on himself and everyone around him.

Biography

Mathew was born into house Gregor and the Assassin Order. House Gregor was recruited into the Assassin Order by none other than Edward Kenway back when he was operating in London. His family were part of the few groups of nobles that actually cared about the common man and the betterment of the world. They were steadfast believers in the Order and while the first of his family were not full fledged Assassins they did begin training their children while also providing funds and help to the Order.

Mathew was born and trained into the Assassin Order along with his brother and sister. He excelled in his training with them and eventually became a full fledged agent. He participated on a number of missions for the Order and rose in their ranks. He experienced wins, loses, and deaths during his years as a low ranking Assassin. While there were times he doubted the mission the Templar's had a nasty habit of bringing things back into stark contrast for him. One event in particular saw the death of his long standing love interest at the Templar hands.

After that his commitment to the Assassin Order became unshakable. His rising in the ranks of the Assassin doubled as he threw himself into their war to mask his grief. By the time World War 2 started he was on the brotherhood council and one year into the war became the mentor of the England Branch of the Assassin Order.

He was always known as a joker but his squad mates used to say he was a "government issued" jokester. He takes things very seriously even when he is joking and reacts well under pressure. He is surely

Biography

Before the Order, before his hands with the First Civ Jackson was a commanding officer in the army and a recon sniper. He was a man of honor and distinction who treated his job seriously. A well liked man with several tours of duty who came home to a simple life and a cat. That might not have changed if it weren't for the events that befell him and his unit in Afghanistan.

The details of that mission were classified and locked away in the deepest darkest vaults of the pentagon. What was supposed to be a joint military operation between Abstergo and the US Army to retrieve an artifact from insurgents. The file states that the only survivor was the Abstergo team and that he and his unit died.

At least thats what the file says.

In reality the Templar's tried to betray his team and kill them. The insurgents were in reality members of the Assassin Order and managed to save him alone. His entire unit died at the hand of the Templar's and they made off with the artifact. Unfortunately for them Jackson managed to take a piece of it off and received a vision that pointed him to the rest of the artifact.

And the people who could help him find it.

He's joined the Assassins as a full member now and has brokered command of this mission.

Cool concept!!

I'm pretty flexible on time period and would just go with whatever time period(s) other people were most interested in really. Between the two suggestions (Feudal Japan or Old West) I prob prefer Japan (more architecture to climb and crowds to blend in...OK granted a blonde chick doesn't blend well in feudal Japan unless she throws on some geisha makeup and dyes her hair) but, again, am flexible

Maybe a setting sort of like the Last Samurai movie, where Japan is wrestling with some Western influence (esp the introduction of firearms).

Open to playing either Assassin or Templar.

FF I heard all these wonderful time frame suggestion of yours.

Then saw the picture of your pirate girl and promptly couldn't think of anything but how much I want to play against her. ROFL

Welcome aboard! I will certainly slot you in for being more interested in Japan. As well if you want to throw in any idea for a certain time period let me know.

Thanks!!

I figure the pic would work for an early Western sailor/pirate/trader visitor to Japan (even though it's based on Edward's Black Flag outfit in the Caribbean setting as I'm sure you could tell). Maybe someone who came along with one of the historical early expeditions
 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Westerners_who_visited_Japan_before_1868 )

I'm good with pretty much any setting though and I know you talked about multiple and the Animus/modern stuff too

It could! If we go the route of Fuedal Japan I think we could work it in. It's probably not the most "period specific" type of outfit but... this is Assassins Creed! If a bunch of different orders can wear the same white robes (or variations on it) then I think that's fine lol.

Personally I really like the idea of an old west period assassins creed setting.

One that was touched on a little bit in one of the games, that I think would deserve more attention, would be a WWII setting, maybe nazi occupied France.
That would give all kinds of cool vantage points. Not to mention great weapon advancements.

I also think some kind of Norse/viking setting would be cool. The opportunity to sail around the northern seas. Shield and spear action.

Also, if you wanted to attempt something really wild, I've always felt the lost city of Atlantis could be approached by assassins creed.

Anyway, those are some thoughts I had
 Also, I am interested in joining this game ^•^

You mentioned World War Two just as I was planning on editing it as a potential time! It's definitely an option I will include in my intial concept.

I will also notate the interest in the Old West. Honestly I'm not against getting all the time frames you guys want up and letting you guys decide who post in where.

Same goes for the Norse Viking Setting

(Funny you should mention Atlantis! I think it's being explored in the newest Assassins Creed game as well)

But welcome aboard Blue Eyed!

Anyway, I look forward to seeing where this goes.

I could get in on this. Wild West & Western arrival to Japan both sound particularly promising to me. Assassins being involved with the IRA during the War of Independence may also be promising.

Welcome Katiana! A pleasure to have you aboard.
 
I think both WW2 and the Viking Settings have the most votes so far. So I can either get the ball rolling on that or we can wait. Honestly I wouldn't mind all of these time periods being thread rooms for those willing. Gives everyone a bit more option wise.

May not want to get too many going at the same time... maybe start with one or two, and then introduce new ones in the "modern thread" periodically?

I would just worry about like... five storylines starting at once.

Right! I meant down the line.

If you guys are okay with moving forward with the WW2 and Viking Setting I can go ahead and start working on the character sheet for our modern day characters.

Then I suppose we do a separate character sheet for our historical characters? If every ones okay with that?

Me to!

I will create a overall base chracter sheet for both the modern and past protagonist. At the most if means you have TWO characters. The Modern Day one and the Time Period one.

I will create both the Viking Time Line and the WW2 one. If you want to play both then it means three characters. If you want only one time line then just pick which one and also do the modern day one.

Interested in playing a male Templar, with a prestigious Templar bloodline (maybe a distant descendant of the Cormacs or Kenways). I especially like the idea of a WW2 era, though the viking era is also great.

Great! Lego you and I will have to get together to figure out how to work him in but I'd be more than happy to figure it out.

Would you be okay with making your Modern day counterpart being okay with the assassins? Might make for an intersting clash if he was horrified his ancestor fought on opposite sides and did it so well.

Hm... Perhaps I could be playing a double agent? A Templar infiltrating one of the remaining Assassin cells to learn what they know. That would keep me from needing to be too antagonistic in the modern day, while also allowing me to do nasty Templar business on the side.  :-)

Actually, if we have enough Templars, we might split the modern day storyline into multiple threads, one for the Assassin base and one for the Templar base. That doesn't necessarily mean they can't still interact in each other's base, or maybe in a "neutral" setting.
