YES OF COURSE WE MUST DISCUSS THIS.

OK WELL FROM WHAT I’VE SORT OF GATHERED IS THAT

HAYTHAM WAS THERE A LOT MORE

Okay excited yelling fades into the back

But if we’re taking everything that happened into consideration, for starters Ziio’s alive when Connor’s well into his late 20s-mid 30s, which means the village never burned down - at least, not that way. I mean, there was an abandoned burned village you could find, but I’m not sure if that was Connor’s memory or not, and heck, everything was burning at the time. It was a pretty crappy era (is that the right word? I think it is) to be alive in. Also considering the village first burned when Connor was five, I don’t know if its remains would still be up when he’s all grown like that. So, if the village didn’t burn down that way that probably means Charles Lee never did his rather impromptu raid on the village in the first place - or if he did, it didn’t go the same way as it had before. On its own I think we can both agree this doesn’t mean much - just something happened differently than it had before. Personally, I believe a lot of this hinges off of WHEN and HOW old Georgie got the Apple. I mean, in the clips of the ‘genuine’ timeline, if I may, he got it when it was handed to him by a soldier. However, I think, since it hadn’t had much of an effect on him, he probably hadn’t gotten his hands on it until pretty recently. I’m really not sure how long it takes for the apple to corrupt someone - I mean, look at Ezio - but this is getting a bit off-topic. So anyways, George had the apple for a long while in the alternate story, but I’m not entirely convinced he had it for as long as it took Connor to grow up. I dunno, I mean, what he did was horrible, but if he had the Apple for 20+ years he probably would have killed everyone. Again, could be mistaken, but we do know a few things already - 1. Haytham was around, otherwise there would be no Connor. 2. Seeing as Ziio fell for him, I’d say it’s pretty logical to assume that, if not the same events for their meeting took place, at least something similar did. And, 3., if that be the case, then maybe Georgie hadn’t called down the all-American Armageddon down on them. I mean, in both versions of the time, he targeted the native villages, but in the ToKW he hadn’t gotten at them, yet - not like he had in the original story. This bit is rather unfounded, but I like to think somebody had intervened - maybe Haytham himself. Long story short, things didn’t happen the way they did, and as a result we got to see the single most genuine smile Connor had to offer us up until that point.

Anyways, on to the next point: Haytham’s dead. This is more of a brief point, but from what I surmised he died long ago. I’m fairly certain Connor never killed him; I mean, as I excessively said just before: The catalyst that sent their relationship spiraling apart never happened. The village never burned, Ziio never died, Connor never became an Assassin; what reason could he possibly have had to want to hurt his father? Heck, even when all of that HAD happened, he still never wanted it to end that way. Neither of them did. So, I think it’s fairly safe to assume that Connor was not the cause of Haytham’s death. This may be unrelated to the theories, but who else could have possibly killed Haytham? There was a reason he was a Templar Grandmaster, and it wasn’t just because he had an awesome voice or he was a snappy dresser. It had to be something big, so perhaps Washington? That could be why we don’t see any of Haytham’s homeboys, or it could be for a variety of other reasons; but perhaps this ties into the previous point. Did Haytham die to save his family? Or maybe he just did something stupid and dangerous. The Kenways all seem to be remarkably good at that kind of thing.

Thirdly, and this is by far my best point, Ziio had Haytham’s hidden blades, which she said he left for Connor. This blatantly tells us quite a bit - one, he knew about Connor, and more than that “oh blast, I might have a son” sudden precognition that would make spidey-senses seem like an outdated typewriter by comparison. The fact that the blades were at the village made me think that he might have visited from time to time - or came around at least once. I mean, realistically, he probably didn’t DIE there, but again, he apparently specifically left them for Connor. That makes me feel like they knew each other much better than “who’s that bloke in the jail cell- Bollocks.” So yeah, I figure he came around at least once or twice. Secondly, let’s take a moment to appreciate the fact that Haytham left what were arguably his deadliest weapons to his son. I think we can both agree Haytham was a complex man - it didn’t matter what he said or did, there was often a deeper meaning, some ulterior motive, or perhaps both. I feel like it was the same case here - obviously, Haytham knew his son would fight, since virtually everyone was at war with everyone else at the time. But Haytham didn’t trust the weapons Connor had on his own to be enough to keep him safe. In a way, Haytham wanted to protect his son, even if it involved doing so after he himself had died. So, he gave Connor the best form of protection he was able to offer - no son of HIS was going to be left defenseless in the hellhole they got sucked into. I also feel like it was his way of encouraging Connor to stand up for himself and fight, to defend not only himself, but his mother, his village, his people, his WORLD as well.

Also worth considering is the ease with which Ziio is able to talk to Connor about his father, when she gives him the hidden blades. There’s no venom or regret - though, she was the one who broke off their relation, so I’m not sure there would have been, anyways - but it almost sounded as though there was a note of pride in her voice. Maybe she didn’t agree with his methods, but hey, her man was out doing something, and she’d be making a storm of her own to continue the deafening thunder he had helped to begin. Also, when she tells Connor about Haytham being a Templar, she doesn’t need to explain anything else about him, or introduce him - this might be because of the fact that they were pressed for time, or the fact that Ziio never was a chatterbox to begin with, but she seemed pretty comfortable discussing Haytham with Connor, so this makes me think either they’ve had similar talks in the last, or they haven’t needed to. I always think back to the scene in the main game where Haytham’s picking the lock and making idle conversation and asks what sort of things Ziio ahead said about him.

Anyways, I could probably keep going, but this is getting ridiculous, so yeah. I feel like Haytham was around a lot more and that that’s almost what would happen if they’d stayed together. Perhaps his question was answered. C:

Wrote this for Bachi

ToKW The Betrayal spoilers warning! (If your chrome translates it XD)

I can’t use the “Read More” break because last time it cleared all I typed,forgive me

劇情緊接著Infamy,康納刺殺阿諾德后被普特南擊暈,帶到了波士頓的一間牢房裏。弗蘭克林,普特南和華盛頓三人親切地圍觀了康納,弗蘭克林表示最近有一個叫山繆的傢伙(沒錯,就是山繆·亞當斯)在搞革命,華盛頓派遣普特南去收拾這件事,然後對獄中的康納發表了一段嘲諷

普特南:“我有一份特別的禮物”

華盛頓:“啥米?”

普特南:“那個你插了一刀放了兩槍也沒殺死的男孩。”

華盛頓:“啊,是你……你的命真大。但是我們要看看如果你的頭被砍下來了是不是還能活得下來……呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵”

然後華盛頓揚長而去,康納用狼披風騙過了守衛,成功從牢房裏逃了出來。當他走出牢房時,發現旁邊的一間裏關著一隻嘎納多貢(爲什麽要把他們兩個關隔壁啦!),兩人見面既驚又喜,多貢說自己現在跟著山繆搞革命,但是被抓了進來,於是康納也把多貢救了出來。

多貢看到康納隨身攜帶著一個葫蘆瓶,裏面裝的其實是紅樹汁液,多貢表示想喝,康納說不行,這很危險。多貢說,天國之旅可以去很多次,每次都會遇到不同的動物靈。康納將信將疑,但這麼危險的事還是只能他自己去,於是他端起瓶子一飲而盡。

這一次他遇到了鷹

重點是:鷹的試煉內容是幫鷹媽媽保護蛋不被野獸偷走喔!

搞什麽也太萌系

(鷹的能力其實不是自由飛行,是在房頂與房頂間的點對點式飛躍。也能從地面瞬間上房頂,只要在合理距離內,有落腳點,就可以使用。我很喜歡這個功能,每次花掉的血都不多,不會臉紅心跳,脫離戰鬥時很好用)

鷹之能力讓越獄更加輕而易舉,但是不幸地在他們準備衝出牢門之前,弗蘭克林帶著衛兵堵住了門口。衛兵被康納很輕鬆地解決掉了,弗蘭克林倉皇逃走

弗蘭克林居然會用升降臺上房頂還會跑酷喔

康納只能用鷹的能力撲倒了他。但驚奇的是在這一撲之下,他好像稍微恢復了一些神智。但這個時候華盛頓突然闖入了“康納和死者二人世界”的空間裏!拿著他的金蘋果權杖。

再次面對華盛頓,已經熟知了他的招數,對付他變得容易得多,康納抓緊一切騎在他身上的時間一頓胖揍

還                   我                   漂                   漂                    拳

打著打著華盛頓好像也恢復了一絲理智,他對康納說:“快跑,跑得越遠越好。”接著康納掉入了一個崩塌的精神空間,那裏有他的媽媽和華盛頓,他們都在惡語相向,說著一切能打擊康納的話,這裏其實非常傷感,當吉歐說出這句話的時候

康納不要哭

與其說他打敗了那個空間裏的華盛頓,不如說他好不容易才從那裏逃離出來。他掉入了一個無底洞,醒來時發現自己大大咧咧旁若無人地橫躺在大街上(沒人撿回家嗎),多貢找到了他,帶他來到了山繆那裏。

本篇最有趣的部份來了

康納來到酒館打探消息,邊和別人下棋邊偷聽,那張掀棋盤巴人臉的圖已經轉得到處是了,在遊戲裏是“按鼠標左鍵以怒意退出棋局”,我想這麼做好久了老師!請在本篇遊戲裏也保留這項功能吧!

在酒館裏他得知弗蘭克林要偷偷送一封信給普特南,康納截獲了那封信,并在他們約見面的地點埋伏好。令弗蘭克林也沒有想到的是,普特南沒有來,來的是他的附下,附下帶來了一封命令書,說華盛頓已經升遷普特南,從此弗蘭克林是他的屬下。在弗蘭克林和附下發生爭執時,康納射殺了附下,并逮捕了弗蘭克林。

不知道是真的恢復神智還是迫於康納的武力鎮壓,弗蘭克林同意與山繆合作,一同對抗華盛頓。弗蘭克林需要一塊特別的金屬,他請求康納去拿。康納來到鐵匠那裏時,發現不識貨的鐵匠把它當做馬蹄鐵釘在了客人的馬蹄上,康納只得去找那一匹馬

不辭辛苦地找回了馬兒之后

弗蘭克林:我的金屬呢?

康納:我希望你有個鐵撬。

這裏我瞬間爆笑出聲

康納的幽默感有很大長進!在後來弗蘭克林找了件藍衫軍的制服偽裝逃走時,因為太胖而把扣子撐得東倒西歪,弗蘭克林:康納我看起來怎麼樣

康納:Ridiculous。)

機智100分!

但是好景不長,自以為已經準備充分的山繆帶著多貢去波士頓海峽打算突襲普特南,但康納卻發現這其實是普特南設下的一個圈套,他趕到那裏時為時已晚,現場只剩下山繆帶血的衣領和嘎納多貢的戰斧,戰斧旁還有疑似被切下來的一截手指,山繆已經遇害,多貢也生死不明

弗蘭克林說我們得趕緊離開這裏,此時華盛頓也正動身前往紐約去平息叛亂,他們不能走陸路,而有一艘船可以用,她現在正被藍衫軍扣押著,停泊在波士頓的口岸,她叫愛奎拉

我簡直不能更喜歡這個任務!!從看到章節標題“被解放的天鷹號”開始,我整個人就鳥肌不已,I’m coming,我的愛人!!

康納、弗蘭克林和福克納一行人解開了束縛著天鷹號的繩子,準備逃走時,普特南押著多貢出現,他要挾康納投降,不然就殺了多貢,康納用鷹之能力解決了他。

普特南的遺言:“是蘋果控制了我……但這是藉口。每個人心裏都有對權力的慾望,蘋果只是喚醒了它們。”

康納和多貢一起跳入水中,登上了船,遠處是紐約港,故事到此告一段落

解鎖的CG是華盛頓深夜找到露營的康納,請求他的幫助

華盛頓:“我遇到了新的敵人!我可能會因此喪命。他們用夢境迷惑我,在夢裏我和瑪莎在一起,在我們的莊園,安靜平和,一點戰爭也沒有。”

康納:“那是天堂。”

華盛頓:“不,那是夢境!你也在夢境中!我覺得這一切的起源好像是因為這個東西……(拿出金蘋果)”

康納:(吃驚地站起來)

解鎖CG就到這裏,其實又是什麽也沒有說

謝謝你看到這裏!又打了一遍我刪掉了很多廢話,但好像還是太啰嗦了……
