Virtual Tourist - Dishonored 12/15/13

Last week the computer wouldn't paste screen shots, so I'm running a little dry for this week as we didn't get to play yesterday. (Sadly during the two days of Icemaggedon I didn't play either, mostly working from home. Work is just way too behind to goof off! Wahhhhh)


Extra Missions

Master Assassin POV

View of the bay. You can see two whales partially dragged into the butchering bays. They are still alive, poor things.

One of the whaling ships. You can see a whale still installed above it. Urgh.

High in the first section of the butcher factory. Loved the lovely rays of sunshine. The only bright thing in this ugly place.

A fellow assassin. She appears occasionally to impart information. She may not look it, but she's a woman. I get the feeling that she doesn't like this place. Can't blame her, I don't either. There's a lot wrong here. More than just the evil being done to the whales. Shudder.

A whale on the line. The poor thing is alive. The process demands them to be. Seemingly the magical oil requires it. Not a pretty sight. I do plan to put the poor thing out of its misery when I get more of this place cleaned out.

Everyone is here for something. And none of it good. She was pretending to organize the workers being abused here. But she's actually a spy for another butcher company.

Delilah is a ship!

One of the mad butchers. Those saws are nasty! These guys are fanatics and will cut down whales or people. Totally crazy.

Honestly a lot of weird stuff going down. I can see why the chaos man has sent the assassin to investigate all this.

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!

"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."


(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

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.

(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“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.”

(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“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.
