I never join the Assassins as a Catholic precisely due to immersion reasons, in spite of the constant temptation.

Though I did always find it weird that the player is allowed to join no matter what.

Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.
