Ben Franklin's Almanacs Edit

Should we add a piece of information about the achievement "Blowing in the Wind" where you have to "Retrieve every page for one of Ben Franklin's Almanacs?"SkytowerC (talk) 10:27, September 30, 2012 (UTC)


Pretty sure Ward voices him in ToKW as well, who added otherwise info and what's the source of it? --Kainzorus Prime Walkie-talkie 16:49, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

That was me, Kain. If you click on his article link, my source was IMDB. It's not much, but it's all we got :/ Stormbeast The Helpful Place 16:53, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

Voice ContinuedEdit

On a seperate note, his voice in Assassin's Creed: Rogue was provided by Rick Jones. As shown on IMDb and in the official credits, seen at 47:04, here. - Roger Murtaugh (talk) 05:10, November 15, 2014 (UTC)

Jim Ward is also listed in the credits, but I can't argue with the evidence. Just gonna say Ubi needs to get their shit straight, because it clearly -is- Jim Ward reprising the role. --Kainzorus Prime Walkie-talkie 20:41, November 18, 2014 (UTC)

Glass HarmonicaEdit

While I don't know about the whole amplification problem that is mentioned, I do know one of the major reasons it didn't catch on was due to the fact that glass at the time contained lead and those who played the Glass Harmonica got lead poisoning, although they didn't understanding it as such at the time. Just that people that played the instrument extensively got REALLY sick. I think some even died too...

Benjamin Franklin did indeed conduct the lighting kite experiment, however an assistant held the kite string and was killed by the lighting strike traveling down said string, through the assistant, and into the ground. ...but hey, science! ...right?

Templar Connection?Edit

At the end of AC: Rogue, Shay refers to Benjamin Franklin as, "..., Master Franklin." Does this mean Benjamin is a Templar Master, or a Master in some other secret society?

It's not a concrete confirmation and is speculation nonetheless. Cordo (talk) 06:57, November 27, 2014 (UTC)

Have you not noticed people in the colonies use that honorific quite often? Monro was constantly going "Master Cormac" even when Shay was a greenhorn without ties to the Templars. --Kainzorus Prime Walkie-talkie 10:02, November 27, 2014 (UTC)

Unity AppearanceEdit

Anyone care to point out where Franklin appears in Unity? I probably missed it somewhere along the way. MasterKenway (talk) 22:51, May 18, 2015 (UTC)

Very first memory when Arno finds his father. It's just a conversation between him and another random NPC. He doesn't even have his proper model or the same voice actor, but he's identified by name. -- 22:54, May 18, 2015 (UTC)
