    hi there guys, i am the real ezio!!!
    nope just kiddin =)

    i am an italian guy, following achievement hunter since the times of halo3..
    and i can solve your little "messer" word mistery...

    first of all i wanted to say that i am proud to finally have a game where localization and traslation of dialogues doesn't ruin the experience,(usually italian dialogues in games sucks compared to original language) but makes it way better, because here in my version of asscreed2 the dialogues are made of true words and phrases of the italian reinassance... adding another layer of "time-realism" (for an italian player)... i mean that the reproduction of situations,places,people, and language used by people, is almost perfect at my eyes...

    one of this words is MESSER... (in italian messere)
    that is an italian word used in medieval reigns and means MISTER!!!
    today messer is not used... the word to say mister now is "signore" (in answer to jake8)

    so for example

    messer ezio (messere ezio)
    messer steve (messere steve)
    messer sandman (messere uomo sabbia) (and yes, referred to mr.sandman song)

    and in italian ass creed 2 game, "messere" it's used quite often
    especially with people yelling at you to not jump on rooftops because you can break your leg
    (messere ma perchè cammina sui tetti? <-----> why walking on rooftops mister?)
    or with the annoyng bards when i stab em =)
    (messere, pensavo la mia musica le piacesse!!! <-----> i tought you liked my music mister!!!)

    so... this is it.... mistery solved... =)

    BTW i'm from rome, if some of you guys comes here we may kill the pope together =) =)

    think about this way this games in Italy so I would have to guess and this is just my bias talking maybe messer is an Italian word for something related to a sandman or maybe Latin since that was the language of ancient Romans which started an empire in Italy I mean What the Fuck is with these ideas that its something in German, Deustch, or French why don't you guess yugoslavian as well or maybe Viatnamese.

    Messer: n. Knife (German).

    At least that's one definition. Meister might have made more sense.

    Actually, Signore is Mister in Italian. I have no idea what they use Messer here...

    If throwing sand is an Assassins weapon, how fucking childish are the guys that teach the Assassins?

    I was able to get this after my game glitched. I was surrounded by 9 guards and when I jumped off a wall they just stood still throwing rocks.

    way easier way to do it.. mug a ton of people until you rack up a bunch of civilians that want to fight you. then get them to follow you into an alley (makes it harder for them to surround you) and then turn around and sand them. this unlocks the achievement without having to use a bajillion med packs.

    i got tired of getting my arse kicked while only being able to sand a few guards at a time.

    It's referencing a song recorded by The Chordettes called Mr. Sandman.

    You remember from Back to the Future: Part I, "<a href='http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odcJ-vS22rI' title=''>"Mr. Sandman? Yesssss? Bring me a dream!"</a>

    ehm, no...messer means knife in german, but anyway this won't make any sense



    pherhaps it has to do with the latin word metere(which can mean to slay down), or from messor(which means something like the grim reaper)

    That's weird. I was able to throw sand without doing any training, but I did have to train for the spear achievement.
