Arno has French father, Austrian mother (and an adoptive father?)
Not sure if its his actual father or adoptive father who dies, but he feels guilty over it
His motivational word is “Redemption”
The game starts in Versailles - Arno is probably a nobleman
Paris is on a 1:1 scale and is split into specific districts
The story spans over a few decades - its not just the revolution.
Young Napoleon will be popping up #holla
They “want to show the Assassins in a new light” due to how narrative-focused and plot heavy the series is, so sometimes “its good to start anew”. Everything before is still canon etc.
3 main factions: The nobility, the revolutionists, and civilians
Some civilians may have weapons and will react with them if something fishy happens
Co-op missions are called Brotherhood Missions; everyone is Arno
Single player storyline still there and everything
Puzzles are back, kind of. Treasure Hunts are new side missions where you use clues, going from monument to monument, to collect your treasure/reward .
New present day story line is “different” to Black Flag’s - you’re no longer an Abstergo Entertainment employee. They said the player is the protagonist but wasnt that the case with AC4? So im guessing the player REALLY is the protagonist like everyone who is playing will be recognised - perhaps we’re all using the Abstergo Entertainment gaming console..
TEHRES A QUEST LOG I REPEAT THERS AGQUEST LOG THANK THE LORD
The ‘parkour down’ thing refers to the new “controlled descent” they’ve added - remember how awkward it was to gently climb down a building before? If there wasnt a haystack you had to jump off and pray you didnt desynchronize… the ‘parkour down’ button is basically like free-running, but downwards, so you dont have to die. Woo.
There seems to be RPG elements - you can customise Arno not only with gloves etc. but with skills as well.
Lots of side missions, more important/focused on than before
everyone you love will die (not confirmed but probably)
How the assassins would react to you bringing home a stray animal: <preference>
Altair ibn la Ahad
At first he didn’t even notice that there was another presence in your home, until he heard something meow from under the table. He immediately unsheathed his hidden blade, ready to attack, but you threw yourself at him suddenly and the sudden impact sent you two tumbling to the ground. “No, Altair!” You shouted “It’s just a kitten!” He stared at you with confusion “A…kitten…?” He repeated with a raised eyebrow “How exactly did it come to this that a cat is in our home?” You looked at him pleadingly “It was outside…scared and lonely… I thought it would be a good idea to bring it inside…” You grinned “Can we keep it?!” Altair stood up and rubbed his temples with a groan. With all the work he has on his head, only caring for a cat wasn’t on his list.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze
You had hoped to sneak the small puppy in your and Ezio’s home and explain later, but Ezio suddenly came out of nowhere and stopped in his tracks when he saw what you were holding near your chest. He watched you with an expectant expression “I thought we should discuss things together before doing something, mi amore.” He said. You let out an awkward giggle and practically shoved the puppy in his face, hoping it would melt his heart and make him say yes to keeping it. “Ezio, look how cute it is!” You squealed and Ezio sighed in defeat. All his life he didn’t know defeat until now. And to no other but a puppy, which leagued up with his lover. “Ah…bene… I suppose a companion could do us good.”
You ran towards the Jackdaw as fast as you could. You had taken a stray puppy in Edward’s cabin while he was away somewhere. And you decided to go buy some food from the market, where you saw Edward, who told you he will be waiting for you on the Jackdaw. You tried to stall him, but he didn’t fall for it and now you were running as fast as you could to catch up to him, even if you knew it was too late and you were afraid of what you might see. What you saw when you entered the captain’s cabin surprised you to no limits. Edward was laying on the bed with the puppy on his chest and he was stroking it gently, murmuring childish things to it.
You had found a lost puppy in the forest. It was very cute, though it was a bit large for a baby and it had an unnatural grayish-white color and quite savage. But you didn’t care because you immediately fell in love with it. You thought Connor wouldn’t mind if you decided to bring home a pet, but the moment he saw you with it outside the Homestead, he immediately froze and stared with disbelief “Y/N, what are you doing?!” He asked, slight panic in his voice. You looked at him, surprised of his reaction “I was just playing with this puppy I found near the-” “Y/N, thats not a puppy, its a WOLF!”
“Really? Again?” Arno scoffed when you appeared at the doorway, holding yet another cat in your arms. “Arno, you know better than me that animals are my weak spot.” You rolled your eyes and let your new pet wander around its new home and meet its new adoptive brothers and sisters. It was a miracle that Arno still doesn’t mind you bringing new cats in your home.
“Y/N, I can explain…” Jacob said the second he opened the door to the train hideout, holding a wounded cat with one hand. Then he noticed an odd looking nest of paper pieces on his desk and a small bird, not yet rid of all its baby feathers lying in it and you watching over it like a mother eagle. You looked at him and then at the cat in his arms. He did the same. Looked at you, then at the bird, then back at you, with a raised eyebrow. “Oh, don’t even get me started, Mr. Frye of the Animal rescue squad.” You said sarcastically before he even said anything. “JACOB! Y/N!” Evie’s voice suddenly boomed through the train walls and you knew you two were in trouble and had ALOT of convincing to do. Evie probably saw the rest of the stray animals you and Jacob had brought in. And some of them MAY have ruined Evie’s favorite armchair and eaten some of her important documents.
“Y/N, I said I MAY not have anything against having a pet dog.” Shay sighed, a bit irritated when he saw the new member of your family sitting on the floor next to your armchair in which you were comfortably seated. A tall, thin hound with long fur was staring back at Shay, panting and wagging its tail. You giggled “Oh, come on love, it might be of use to you when you go hunting!” You assured him cheerfully
Arno Dorian x Reader - An American Prostitute in Paris
[Part of the
prostitute series I will be working on featuring select characters from AC2/AC:
black flag/ AC: Unity/ AC: Rogue/ AC: Syndicate. I will add others as I
experience the games or watch the cutscenes. This one will have the reader and
Arno, where Arno comes across the reader with
a bit of a language problem.
Never would you imagine being a ‘beautiful foreigner’ (as
one English speaker put it) would have you trembling in the cold embrace of Paris late at night.
Misery was the only blanket of emotion that cradled you when you were forced to
the streets of Paris
in hopes of bringing back to the brothel your worth. Misery was often
accompanied by fear, however. Men you never knew would demand and pay for your
time and body. Hell, some wouldn’t even pay. Some liked it rough, some liked it
adventurous, and others just wanted to take what they felt you were offering
without allowing you a say.
Not that you could say a damn thing…you didn’t know French.
You were just visiting, or so you thought, only to be kidnapped and forced to
the brothel as your body was precious and your face, hair, and sweet voice
would get them what they wanted. The mistress who owned the brothel even made
sure that nobody spoke a single English word around you. The last girl who
tried to teach you French…well…you hadn’t seen or heard from her since Madam
Leonda found out.
Embracing yourself in the cold of the night, you lowered
your head in sorrow. If the mistress could see you now, she would strike you
and yell at you that you aren’t going to get men that way. Same could be said
if you even came back a franc short of what was expected of you; you would be
screamed at and struck with anything that the horrible woman could get her
hands on, but you were burdened by the thoughts of home…how you missed it so.
> He isn’t shy at all when it comes to his feelings so he will always flirt with you whenever he sees you and will make you laugh at every opportunity.
> In truth he is somewhat nervous that you might reject him even if he doesn’t show it.
> You’d be surprised to find out that he is very poetic and would sometimes write poems for you, which he would leave at your door with a single rose. You wondered who it might be from the first time you received a poem because it didn’t have a name on it.
> Then things became obvious and you asked Arno about it. That would be his chance to, oh so romantically, explain his feelings to you.
> Endless bouquets
> He is always very romantic, compliments you about everything from your outfit for the day to your makeup or jewelry you wear. He even notices when you had a haircut.
> He is still sarcastic and cocky around you and wouldn’t think twice on confronting any other man who would dare talk to you.
> Very sensual during intimate moments
> Very protective of you. He hates seeing you cry or hurt and would do anything in his power to make you feel better. And would go as far as to hurt the person who made you feel this way
> When there is an occasion, he honestly outdoes himself and would make you feel like a queen. He loves decorating and making food for you two but out of all the things, he loves your surprised expression the most and the tears in your eyes when he explains how all this is for the most beautiful woman, the one he loves - you.
> He loves taking you to dances. And he adores dancing with you.
> Spoils you 24/7. Its just in Parisian blood to be this loving.
