The Assassins discovered a Templar plot to bribe the German elector Friedrich der Wiese to prevent him from establishing a University dedicated to religious reform.

Dressed as shabby bandits, the Assassins headed to intercept the money on the outskirts of Wittenberg. There, they scared the driver, causing him to overturn the carriage. The Assassins quickly cut down the cart's defenders and seized the bribe. They left the driver alive to ensure that the bandit ruse would spread.

Soon after, the university received a tremendous contribution from an anonymous donor.
