|Merchant Stand Destruction|
William's men fear he is destined for failure, though they dare not turn to the King for help. There is mention of a third man - one said to reside in the harbor - though he inspires little confidence as well... Uncertainty rules the day. It makes men paranoid - and my work more difficult.
Altaïr approached the informant in an alley near the market.
- Informant: Lend me your ear for a moment, Altaïr. William of Montferrat has replaced many of the district's honest merchants, with men loyal to his cause. He seeks to weaken faith in King Richard, by overcharging citizens for poorly crafted goods. These corrupt merchants must be removed. Find their stands, and destroy them.
Altaïr demolished the stands of William's merchants, and returned to the informant.
- Informant: Thank you for the help, Altaïr. It may seem a small thing you've done today, but it's important nonetheless. This bit of paper should prove useful when you finally face William.
Altaïr learned that another man in the harbor was connected to William.
