Ezio: Any damage?
Yusuf: Not that I can see. Byzantine Templars may be bad hosts, but are decent tenants. Once they capture a location, they like to keep it intact.
Ezio: Because they intend to stay.
Yusuf: Kesinlikle. (Exactly.) Well, as promised if you want to learn how to craft your own bombs, I can show you. Don't touch that! One wrong move and Bang! The building comes down.
Ezio: Are you serious?
Yusuf: The look on your face. Here, I'll show you. We craft our bombs from a combination of three parts. The shell, the gun powder, and the primary ingredient. Sometimes we add a few extras too, for fun, but we'll come to that later. For now focus on these elements. You'll find many ingredients for bomb recipes scattered throughout the city, so keep your eyes open and your nose to the ground as you move about.
Ezio: That should keep me busy. Grazie (Thank you) Yusuf. Have you ever seen this book?
Yusuf: No, it's a journal?
Ezio: Si. (Yes.)
Yusuf: The Secret Crusade by Niccolo Polo. Marco's father?
Ezio: I found this on a Templar in Nasyaf. It mentions the five keys to Altiar's library. Niccolo brought them here and hid them.
Yusuf: And the Templars know this, so it's a race against time.
Ezio: They found one already, beneath Topkapi. I want to recover it and find the other four.
Yusuf: So, where will you begin?
Ezio: The old Polo trading post, I think. They ran a business in this area, no?
Yusuf: I believe so. Speak with a man named Piri Reis in the Bazaar. He can point you in the right direction. And teach you a few more bomb recipes if you are so inclined.
Ezio: Piri Reis? I think I have seen some of your earliest work.
Piri: Reis? Did Yusuf Tazim send you? That sounds like one of his exaggerations.
Ezio: Si. (Yes.) He said you could show me the location of Niccolo Polo's former trading post.
Piri: You must be that Floransali (Florentine) he's been yammering on about. Lothario?
Piri:I don't hear the difference. Yes, the old Polo shop. It's just west of Ayasofya, here.
Ezio: Grazie (Thank you), Yusuf also mentioned that you were the man to talk to about specialty bombs.
Piri: That man, he is a talker. Evet (Yes), I am an navigator in the sultan's navy, currently on leave to study cartography. But through my soldiering I have also gained an appreciation for artillery and explosives. And it has served the assassins well. It gives us a . . . an edge. I carry many kinds of bombs, for Assassins only of course. Lethal, tactical, diversionary, and a few peculiar casings. Everything you see here is for sale, if you can prove you know how to use it first.
Ezio: I am eager to learn.
Piri: Well, no one is stopping you. Just let me know.
