AC: Decoy by JessKat-art AC: Decoy by JessKat-art
A couple of times in the game it's happened that a civilian manages to climb up on the rooftops. Don't ask me how. Usually after a minute or so they remember they're not really supposed to be there and jump back down. The first time I encountered one, I thought: wouldn't it be funn-- I mean, tragic if they attracted the archers' attention?

(I hope the gesture in the last panel is clear enough. It's supposed to be a "thank you" salute. It's a bit hard to depict in a still image.)

Two years later, I must say that things got even worse in the last AC part. Instead of climbing over the places they weren't supposed to be at, they fell off all the surfaces :p

Oh my word, this is SO true! :giggle: I've seen it happen in every single game in the series so far!

Well, every big console game. -_- I tried two of the handheld versions. Both sucked. No thank you.

:D why can't i have civilians on rooftops in my game as well? :D i encounter only guards that stupidly jump down after they've stoped chasing me and of course kill themselves :P which is not funny if you get down faster than them and then they fall in front of you (results in another chase)

Rimfaxe96 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2011
I bet everytime a villager meets Altair/an Assassin on a house, he must be all like "WTF are you doing on my roof?" :XD:
JessKat-art Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In Brotherhood you're able to climb buildings at Monteriggioni as Desmond at night. The awkward thing is, most windows have lights on inside, meaning there are people living in there. In Ezio's and Alta´r's time you can still imagine people would sometimes expect a thief or a guard to run across their roofs, but Monteriggioni is supposed to be closed to all but those who live there. I always wonder what would happen if someone suddenly opened a window and saw Desmond hanging from a drainpipe.
Rimfaxe96 Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2011
Lmao. xD
I'd probably be all like... "Can I help you with something?" :D

I've watched an LP of AC; it never happened in this LP but that doesn't mean anything, I believe. Sometimes games are bugged, sometimes they're not. ;) Anyways: This is a funny little scene! :D It would have been terrific if the assassin (I'm sorry, I forgot his name ... :/ ) really did what you depicted in a comic here. :) :D

PyrianAssassin Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Just say Altair.
hatochiisai Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
XD I love the look on the Assassin's face when he sees the civilian on the roof.

Lol, Alta´r is funneh.

OMG i laughed so hard xD yeah i had that situation a few times. also in acre at the docks, there┤s always someone who walks on a small boat and then jumps into the water
honeycrackle Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2011
Honestly, I wondered if this would happen! Just some guy wanders up onto the roof and BAM arrow'd.

hehehe this made my day! ^^ and don't worry the expression in the last pannel is just perfect ;D I thought of it more like a "see ya!" lol what a great comic! :D it really would be fun "I mean...tragic" if it really were to happen >.<
Zalin Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2011
The thank you salute is clear, and depicted legibly : ) Good work : )
wyrd66 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011
That's hilarious. I admit, I've thought the same thing once or twice. :)
mrSketchy Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011
haha yeah it's strange when civilians glitch or if I ...'accidentally' throw some over edges ect, only to end up on some architecture.
Though I found when they go to return t their predetermined route they'll use assassin maneuvers to climb back to the main street. Parkour skills apparently are like the tamagotchis of 1200ad. Well, according to ubisoft
Red-Fox14 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Well, back then it made sense to learn how to climb like that, though they probably weren't as skilled as an Assassin.
JessKat-art Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In the second game I killed someone on the street surrounded by high walls. Some of the civilians panicked and started running away, a whole group of them just started scrambling up the buildings to get away from me! It was pretty amusing, I followed them to see where they would end up, but most of them just climbed over the one building and got back down to street level on the other side.
amethystartist83 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2011
Watch them scramble away from you like little ants, eh ? That appeals to my sadistic side, erm, I mean my "playful" side a lil' bit, may get the game just to do that, lol...

last panel so funny :D
DJdannie4610 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2010  Hobbyist Artist
Wow, me and my cousin never know that o-o
Roof guards piss me off [all the time whenever I'm on the roof with a roof guard noticing me] so I did just use hidden blade and sly to kill guards.
BTW your comic is so funny XD mmm...I wonder what's your fav. weapons in AC series? o-o? [Hidden Blades, Collection of Armors, include collections of weapons ^^; don't ask coz Im too into blood killing games since I was little girl :> PEACE and its true]
my cousin brought AC: Brotherhood :(
[Still I'm going to buy it after all]
JessKat-art Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm a fan of the hidden blade myself. Apart from that, in the second game my other weapons are the butcher knife (so brutal yet so satisfying ;) ) and....the broom. XD It's just hilarious when you can just pick up a broom off the street and deliver epic battle moves to a bunch of Brutes with it.
BotherBear Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Still loving this!
Delfin-a Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2010
i do, however, enjoy taking out the roof guards. they never know what's coming *evil grin* and when they do notice you, just take out the guy who noticed and everything is back to normal :D
