AC Odyssey: Misthios

[Part of the AC Odyssey journal]

Whacking people off cliffs is good fun!

"Impressive work Eagle Bearer," said the skinny long haired man sitting by the road side, right next to the burning Spartan fortress. "I quite liked how you managed to knock that one guy off the central tower and made that archer lady set herself on fire with her own arrows!"

"Do I know you?"

"Lavrentios," said the stranger as he stood up an bowed. "I'm a misthios too, and one day I hope to be as good as you, Eagle Bearer!"


"Alexios! That's a good, strong name. I hope you are quick too. The Spartans aren't very happy that you keep siding with Athens in this war you know." 

"Is that a threat?"

"No, not at all," said Lavrentios as he raised his empty hands. "I just wanted to warn you. Of the mercenaries that are now marching with their main force, look out for Aphaia the Flash. She is deadly fast."

"Good to know. Chaire, Lavrentios."

With a nod, the two men parted ways, both knowing that as misthiosi they may one day require to kill the other.

Insight: There is a mercenary ranking system in this game and you start at the bottom (Tier 9). The higher your rank the more behind the scenes benefits you get. It also serves as your "don't get caught doing bad stuff" system as the higher your bounty, the more mercs will come after you. Most likely higher level ones than you!
