William retreats to the back of his citadel whenever challenged by King Richard's authority. The precarious relationship between the two men seems to have spread to their own hosts, causing no small amount of tension. I suspect William's citadel to be densely populated with men loyal to him alone.
Altaïr approached the informant near the citadel.
- Informant: Back again, Altaïr? Always in need of a hand to do your dirty work. This time Al Mualim did not order anything, it is just for my own pleasure that I ask you to find some Masyaf flags I've hidden in Richard's district. Since I am a loyal Assassin, unlike others, I will tell you what people are saying in Acre. It is important information. But this time, try to come back to me faster than the first time.
Altaïr retrieved 20 flags scattered around the area, and returned to the informant.
- Informant: Your hard work is changing my opinion of you. Here is what I know about William of Montferrat – he and Richard had a disagreement before the King left for Jaffa. Since then, William stays in his citadel, surrounded by his army. Do you have what it takes to attack him in this protected environment? We'll see, but I am still doubtful.
Altaïr learned that William retreated inside the citadel whenever he was challenged by King Richard.
