Assassinís Creed: Brotherhood of Venice Ė October Interview
Topic: The Characters
ATA Team, October 28th, 2019

Our monthly interviews with the team behind the upcoming Assassinís Creed: Brotherhood of Venice tabletop game are back and this time we got the chance to chat with Lead Game Designer Thibaud de le Touanne and Story Designer Fabrice Lamidey about the characters in the game, both in terms of gameplay and in terms of story!

1) In Dari‚ís gameplay video itís mentioned that in the main game Ezio can be called onto the terrain by each of the main characters of the game. Can you describe what kind of actions he can perform?

Thibaud de la Touanne: Assassins can call Ezio to escort them, make additional hits, block a tile or ignore some Guards ripostes. But you may also decide to let Ezio in the Assassins HQ, he will then give a bonus to complete HQ contracts. You can also call him in the Creed vs Crows expansion when you play on the Assassins side (and call Cesare Borgia if you play the Crows)!

2) You recently have started showcasing the turnarounds of some of the main characters of the Roma expansion (Alif, Beatrice, Clara and Domenico). Can you tell us a bit more about them and what is their objective in Rome within the narrative?

Fabrice Lamidey: In the Roma expansion, the Assassins will have to deal with finding a way to secure an object very meaningful for both the Templars and the Assassins. Each of the four new Assassins has a distinct personality and background and a set of unique skills reflecting that. Alif, for example, is a former pirate while Domenico is a defrocked monk.


3)The description of the Tokyo XXI expansion says that the main characters for that part of the game are Layla Hassan, Rebecca Crane, Kiyoshi Takakura and ďA mysterious member of the BrotherhoodĒ. Can you give us a hint about who that might be? We think TomoSakagawa, the Japanese Assassin from the Assassin's Creed Bloodstone comics might be a nice candidate :)

Fabrice Lamidey: Tomo would indeed be an awesome candidate! But no :) What I can tell you is that when we were in Essen last year, we talked about that mysterious Assassin to the very dedicated Assassin's Creed fans who helped us organize the show. If their reaction was any indication, you can expect people to be quite excited when they discover who that Assassin is.
