My time spent with Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood has been short. Very short. While at a friend’s apartment I messed around with it for a little while, killing society’s bigwigs, burning down their homes, and then opening shops in the now liberated area.

Each time a shop opened, the game proudly declared that an arbitrary amount of money was now being routinely entered into the city economy. Once I got past the natural joke of Ezio aiding the economy more than congress (har de har har) I came to the realization that, as nice as weapon shops and banks and tailors are, a city fit to burst with assassins could benefit from a laundromat.

Granted, washing machines did not exist circa 1500’s Rome, but fullers did. I’ll spare you the trouble of reading the wiki page by telling you that fullers cleaned cloth withurine. This fact might actually make you click the link.
