The Story so Far *MASSIVE SPOILERS*

Altair's Chronicles | 1190 A.D
Altair, a young but experienced assassin returns home to his city from some work. He finds it under attack by Templars. In order to stop the attack, he fights back using his skills and in doing so kills a low-ranking officer of the Templar army. Al Mualim, his master, gives him the task of finding a very important object named the Chalice. It is able to unite all nations in favor of a single master, and must not fall into the hands of the enemy: thus it must be destroyed.

Throughout his investigation and adventures, Altair discovers that the Chalice is not an object, indeed it is a woman who he has an interest in: Adha. The Templars capture her, and put her on a ship. Altair fights his way to the ship and kills the Templar leader, Basilisk. However, Adha turns out to be on a different ship, and Altair vows to find her, no matter what it takes.

The first time Altair has seen the ferocity of the Templars, and the reason for having a Personal Vendetta against them in Assassin's Creed

This article is a continuation from Part 1:
http://www.thehiddenblade.com/marco-barbarigo-assassination-variety-pack

Marco is blind.
Marco Barbarigo is basically an animated game prop. He is oblivious to just about everything. I can find only 3 things that will make him run:

1) Detection of Ezio by any guard, anywhere.
2) Ezio standing on the center or starboard sections of the deck.
3) A gunshot that does not kill Marco.

Anonymous Blitz
If you don't enter l'Arsenale, you will stay Anonymous and the targets won't move past their first waypoint. This is the perfect opportunity to kill them with throwing knives. They will be too far away to lock onto, so you'll have to aim "manually." Throwing knives travel in the direction of your last horizontal movement. Walk in the direction you would like to aim, and look over Ezio's head to fine tune your aim.

Anonymous Blitz Assassination
Despite appearances, the guards and the target aren't very alert on this level. Run straight for him and air assassinate from the rail.

Moves & Skills List

(Promoted from the forums to the front page - stabguy)

Here is a full list of the game's moves and skills, sorted by when Ezio acquires them.

Keep in mind that some skills may be used before "learning" them in a particular mission. The order of this list is based on the point at which Ezio can first use the skill, not when he receives official instruction.
