Virtual Tourist - Dishonored 12/1/13

December is HERE!

2013 has come and gone so very fast! Wheee!


Extra Missions

Master Assassin POV

I started the second extra mission set for Dishonored. It starts just before the assassination of the Empress, as the Master Assassin realizes this might be the one mission he never should have taken on.

He gets a visit from the Chaos god, who basically tells him he has chosen badly. But he can partially redeem himself by seeking out information on the name Delilah. Definitely gives the impression the god is chaotic good.

I do so enjoy these surrealistic zones! Heh heh. As you can see by the icon at the top left, the assassin has slightly different powers from Corvo.

This sunset is magnificient, is it not? The master assassin is heading to the docks as he's heard of a ship called Delilah - 6 months later (and about the time Corvo is about to escape.)

The ship is being used by one of the whaler companies. What few books I've found make it seem like we'll be learning a lot about the whales. Totally awesome as they'd given hints of things in the game but hadn't taken it further. Loved the one diary entry stating that the man cutting the whale said it sang a funeral dirge for humanity, not itself.

I loved what they did with the pipe leak there. The water actually undulates.

Ah, the nasty place that will hopefully provide answers. Even if I don't yet know the questions.

Looks like this second mission set is going to be fun!

May your Sunday be relaxing and fun!

"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."

It took everything from her, except revenge!

The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.

“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”


“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.

“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”


Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”

“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”


Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.

(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”


Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
