I discussed this in an earlier conversation and I thought I would actually bring up my ideas for a sequel to this great game. I am a writer who is still writing his first book and I think you may like my ideas.
Note: This blog will update if I come up with a new idea.
It is essentially the same as the pervious game albeit, more weapons, more abilities and supernatural powers.
Combat is relatively unchanged with the exception of being able to use two of the same weapons (example; two pistols or a pistol and a crossbow). A.I. Is smarter also.
- Blink - Same ability, different color (maybe green?) with a slightly farther range.
- Bend Time - Same ability. The pistol will still hit the target anyway but bolts will just freeze mid-air and stay there unt…

Is there a page for these things yet? I want to know before I accidentally cause the Wiki Apocalypse by creating a duplicate page.
They only appear twice, but they're pretty useful, and not every figures out that they can use Slackjaw's for free elixir before they poison it. *By 'not everyone' I mean 'me.'*Read more >
Ok when I was escaping the golden cat I went throught the "special visitors exit/entrance"(I dont know exactly what it is called) and I ran into granny rags I didnt talk to her instead I choked her out and she turned into a rat pack, I killed them but I didnt see rags for the rest of the game. I finished the game but apparently theres supposed to be a confrontation between rags and slack jaw(acording to other gamers I have discussed this with) it didnt happen for me and i didnt hear from slackjaw for the rest of the game after the "house of pleasure". So theres to things i want to know.
1.Did I kill Granny rags?
2.Did I bugger up an important mission?Read more >
1. Do you think there will be one.
2. If yes who do you think it will be about.
3. Would you rage if it wasnt corvo (the main character)Read more >
Could somebody please tell me exactly how many alternate endings there are(or how many they have played through), iv played through 2 im wondering if theres a 3rd or 4th or if i am just wasting my time.Read more >
Okay, so I got the blueprints for the explosive bullets upgrade and it unlocked in Piero's shop. However, when I go to buy it it says "Item Corvo's Pistol Required". This is odd because I have a pistol in my inventory. Does Corvo need a special pistol for it to let me purchase the blueprint?Read more >
Greetings Dunwall Citizens!
While going about my business as usual, I stumbled upon something that caught my eye. I took a look at it, and couldn't stop laughing. Since I'm a nice guy who loves to share funny stuff with people, I leave you with this:
- The Text Adventures That Never Were - Dishonored
Please note that this was a joke by the writers, highlighting some of the quirks of the game, and should not be taken seriously. Normally, I wouldn't need to say that, but this is the Internet after all.
While I'm at it, here are a few more links:
- The Text Adventures That Never Were - Assassin's Creed III
- The Text Adventures That Never Were - Mass Effect 3

I am curious if anyone else has any idea of the layout of Dunwall.
We are only given maps of specific districts (like the Clavering Blvd. district, and many interior spaces) but it is easy to see that the entire city was planned out by the developers.
In the first level, at Dunwall Tower you are able to see nearly all of the other areas you visit in the game, which is a really good tool for foreshadowing, but was completely lost on me the first playthrough. Now that I'm taking a better look at it, I really want to try and piece together a city map of Dunwall, which there doesn't appear to be anything similar to either in the game, or in any sort of concept art or other art I have seen.
From what I can understand, the mouth of Wrenhaven Rive…Read more >
I am playing a no-kill, undetected playthrough.I am at the part where Granny Rags and Slackjaw are at their final confrontation, yet I am finding it impossible to achieve my desired playthrough because of this part. Rendering Granny Rags unconcious through choking her out or a sleepdart apparently adds a hidden kill to your score. Pickpocketing her adds an automatic detection. I also can't help Granny Rags because then I would need to kill Slackjaw. I have read that to achieve a no-kill, no detection walkthrough I would need to restart my game and avoid Granny Rags as much as possible. I don't like this option because I have spent many tedious hours playing with complete stealth. Basically, what I am asking is if there is anyway to comple…Read more >
Eeeh, I'll put this here for now, might move it to the Jessamine Kaldwin page if I can't get an answer here.
Maybe someone can help me with this, because I'm highly curious.
I remember seeing a book during one of my playthroughs that talked about the Kaldwin line. I can't remember very much of it, but I specifically recall it talking about how the Kaldwin line is not the direct royal line--they came into power because a ruler some generations back lacked an heir, and the Kaldwins were his closest relatives.
I have not been able to find this book on my current playthrough (which is fine, since I'm only on The Royal Physician), and can't for the life of me remember where I found it the first time. Does anyone recall where this book might be?

Right, so I recently finished my Dishonored playthrough. (No kill/Ghost) Well..... I got Clean Hands, but no Ghost. Even though all of my mission stats have it ticked. Also, I can't replay mission 3 in any way what so ever. In the replay menu it just shows as locked even though I have finished the game. Furthermore, can somebody care to explain how replaying a mission works. I know you start with only the goodies you had at the beginning of said mission but do the stats change? Does say replaying Mission 1 mean I have to do the rest all over again?
Thanks, your friendly,

Hi. I'm writing this and I just want to know, should there be a sequel to Dishonored or not? Just watch this video.Read more >
Holy goddamn, I swear you could make an article just about all the times you hear someone say something xenophobic to or about Corvo. Murdered the Empress? Black magic? Well he is Serkonan!Read more >

So, I just did a run through, trying to be low chaos. I choked out or otherwise knocked out just about everyone (patrolling guards, nosy maids, etc). I killed maybe about 25 people who I didn't have to kill for missions, and that was right at the beginning. I was never full-out detected at any point, no one ever noticed a corpse or body and put the place on high alert. I was very careful, yet I still have high chaos. How can this be? Does choking people out contribute to higher chaos? Because if so, that makes no sense.Read more >
My thoughts: let me show you them.
So, when talking about the Heart, something people bring up a lot--and rightfully so--is what it means about Corvo that he uses the Heart of his late, very dear friend and lover (or just the first if you don't subscribe to the notion of the second, though I do and will be writing this with that in mind) for the purpose of finding magic bones when being trapped there is torment for her. While you could say it's cruelty on his part (and, if you were looking strictly at high-chaos Corvo, you might have something there), I think of it a different way.
Specifically, I actually think it's tragic: I imagine him slowly figuring out what the Heart really is overtime, trying to deny it, but by the time he gets to Dun…Read more >
While going through the Lore category, I noticed a lot of pages belong to subcategories as well as the root category. This is a bit redundant, as a tree like category system is much more efficient. I propose that we go on a re-categorization run, and create root categories, which the subcategories will belong to, making the wiki a lot more accessible. I'd love to know your thoughts and suggestions, so feel free to leave a comment below.Read more >
OH MAN. I like it.
Does this mean I get to come in the clubhouse now? :)Read more >
And I suppose, as silly as it is, this will work just fine:
Has anybody else noticed all the typos in the books/written notes/audiographs? Not on this wiki, but in the game?
I actually find weirdly charming and fun to uncover, rather than annoying like I usually would.
Why yes, I am a very interesting person, why do you ask?Read more >
Now, I know... I'm a relatively new user -- but if you'll been on here lately, I've been spamming the wiki activity with my adding of templates to pages -- achievements, people, etc. Which is why I have started this blog, to bring up an issues that is rather annoying and time consuming.
If a page is written, and a template is needed, how about... you know, you add the template with the proper information instead of a thumpnail of the character/achievement/item, etc.
In the long run, it's time consuming adding categories, recorrecting information and adding templates to pages that should already have them. And yes. I am well aware that this is a young wiki, but it doesn't mean that we should not allow the level of content to be lowered.

A news report suddenly blares over a loudspeaker
Dead Counter here, I've got my bottle of Dunwall Brand Whiskey and Cullero Cigar in hand....
Bethesda has officially announced Dishonored DLC news. They will be releasing 3 DLC packs in the coming months. The first known as, Dunwall City Trials will be released this December for 4.99USD (PSN & PC) or 400 Microsoft Points (Xbox Marketplace). It's said to include a set of 10 challenge maps that will truly put Corvo's combat, stealth, and mobility skills to the test, with challenges involving drop assassinations and the ability to fight in a arena against the many enemies of Dishonored.
The second DLC add-on will put us all through a campaign centered on Daud. Seems some of us here at the Wiki got…

Bethesda has just announced three DLC packs for Dishonored - yes, three! First up, Dunwall City Trials will launch this December and include 10 challenge maps. These include arena battles against waves of enemies, a run of drop-assassination tasks, and speed-run requirements. Dunwall City Trials will launch for $4.99 and will come with its own set of achievements (sorry, no EU pricing known as of yet).
The subsequent DLC packs will launch sometime in 2013 and, most importantly, are their own contained story-driven missions. While the names of the DLC packs are still unknown, we know Daud will be the main protagonist in the second content pack. Daud will have his own weapons, powers, and tools at his disposal as well.
This is really exciting news…Read more >
I am back with another Dishonored Challenge! Last week I posted my playthrough of The Royal Physician with a set of self-prescribed limitations. I decided to play through the campaign without touching the ground whenever possible. You can read about that experience and watch the video here!
This time I am back to overcome the campaign with a completely different approach. My new challenge is simple, and I encourage you to try it: KILL EVERYONE!
- This challenge sounded too easy, so I added the same additional challenge as I did the first: You must complete this campaign as fast as possible.
- Yes, you must kill civilians as well. (I know. I'm a terrible person.)
- I was shocked. This challenge was actually way more difficult than the Floor is Lava C…

I hereby announce the Friendly Facts user game.
In the interest of goodwill and getting to know one another, I propose the adding of Friendly Facts about users to their page, warning people of their unsavory qualities.
The rules are as follows:

- If anyone does not want to join in, respect that choice and do not edit their page.
- Mark all edits under a "Friendly Facts" section, as seen on my own page, to keep all entries to the game clear and easily removable
- In the case of legitimate vandalism, do not hesitate to report.
- don't spam someone with Friendly Facts. You get to add ONE per user.

At last, the questions you sent in have finally returned from Arkane Studios with answers. First off, I am deeply sorry that these came in so late. By now you have likely played the game and found answers for yourself. We should have known that with the high-stress release of the first game, Arkane Studios would have had their hands completely full.
Regardless, I think we get some really interesting responses here anyway, so you find all the questions and answers below - even the ones we already know. Co-Creative Directors Raphael Colantonio and Harvey Smith answered the questions and I think you will be happy with most of their responses. Of course they could not answer all your questions, but I did do my best to get them a consolidate lis…Read more >
A news report suddenly blares over a loudspeaker...
Hey there fellow Dunwallians, me and Dead Counter were having a discussion on the Dishonored Wiki IRC client and the idea of a Dishonored-themed newspaper emerged. If any official game news or interesting topics surrounding Arkane Studios come to light, we figured it could be added in an enjoyable format, supplemented by some in-world imaginings.
However, we're a little stuck for some names, and so we thought we'd turn to you guys. If you could crank up your minds, or your hearts if need be, we'd be ever so greatful. So far, here's what we've brainstormed:
- The Dunwall Times
- Gristol Gazette
- Pandyssian Publishings
- The Loyal Conspirator
- The Dunwall Overseer
- The Whaler's Whimsy
- The Drunken Whaler

Before Arkane gave him that rather creepy mask we all know and love/fear, Corvo went through multiple design iterations, much of it influenced by the fact that the game was originally going to be set in 17th-18th century London as opposed to the strange mystical-mechanical world we've fallen in love with. Here are some of the concept artworks released on Kotaku.
Evidently he has indeed undergone several design changes. Most likely due to three reasons.
1. The original design invokes a little too much of the Thief series.
2. The setting was shifting away from the original 17th century setting, and could now afford to be more fantastical.
And 3: The 18th century was too close to Assassins Creed 3 (although there was no way they could have known at…Read more >
Since I have recently completed Dishonored, I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for sequels. Dishonored has sold very well, so it us unlickley that they would just let the Dishonored universe go. You may be skeptical about having a sequel for Dishonored, but you have to look at the bigger picture. Many people will naturally assume that the sequel would have to star Corvo & take place in Dunwall, but no; it doesn't have to. There is such a rich universe contained within this game & the developers, including Bethesda, would be stupid to let this brand new lore slide.
If you asked me for ideas I wouldn't be able to give any specifics, but i could easily give a basic outline for the concept of the game. It's not like it's hard…Read more >

Since Dishonored is so much about player choice, and we know that there are all sorts of different ways players can overcome the game's challenges, I thought it would be interesting to take my character as is and create a challenge for myself, and you if you would like to participate!
I tried to think of various limitations to set for myself and settled on the classic children's game: The Floor is Lava. Here was my simple limitation: Avoid touching the floor whenever possible!
- Because of its building layout, I chose to do this challenge in The Royal Physician mission.
- Of course completely avoiding the ground is impossible, so I touch the floor at certain times, but I think I have to. I also decided that when I touch the floor, I cannot move fr…

Dishonored is out and I am loving it. The game is getting tons of positive responses from critics and players alike, and no wonder, the game features some really well executed ideas. I thought it might be great for those who are still on the fence to list five things people should know about the game that could pique their interest or make for a better play experience. They are also some of my favorite aspects of the game.

I'm unorc, not new to wikis in general, but new to this wiki in particular. As a huge fan of Dishonored, having just completed my first playthrough, and starting my second, I would like to contribute to this wiki. One suggestion I have:
I know what you're thinking: Why would we want a fan fiction section?
Well, the developers at Arkane studios have done a phenomenal job fleshing out the city of Dunwall and its inhabitants, and have provided a rich culture and backstory for the game. A concentrated spot for fan fiction could be very helpful to the community as a whole. Wikia provides great tools for articles on characters, places, and stories. As such, I think a central hub for Dishonored fan fiction, which is almost sure…Read more >
Thank you for reading/contributing to the Dishonored Wiki. With the game now released, we have access to all the information within the game. Since we now have access, we must document all of this information. Here is a list of things that need to be done:

- Bone Charms
- Each named NPC
- Complete mission walkthroughs
- Side quests
- Bone charm and rune locations
- Supernatural Ability Guide
- List of locations
- List of safe combinations, formatted similarly to this: http://deusex.wikia.com/wiki/Keycodes_(Deus_Ex:_Human_Revolution)
If you can take charge of any of these, or know of anything else that needs to be done, leave a comment and I'll edit the list.

Oh the winter glut of video games has begun! The sheer amount of games that I desperately want to play - scratch that, have to play, is absolutely amazing. Yes, I have been playing Dishonored, but I have also been playing Borderlands 2 and I am still itching to play XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Pokemon Black & White 2 (that's right, I have no shame about it either).
IGN has a great video about the games coming out the week, which you can check out below. Also, let me know what ELSE you are playing this week in the comments below! Anything I should we should get our hands on? Anything discarded to the side while you play Dishonored?

At last! Dishonored is out and playable, right now! While you are taking a break from Dunwall, join me to take a look at the game's critical reception. Simply put, Dishonored is earning a huge heaping of praise. Check out the review roundup below. And, most importantly, let us know your thoughts on the game with the poll and comments section! So, was it worth the wait?
It’s a rare delight to play a game with such consistency of vision, its art design, level architecture, rulesets, storylines and writing all working in lockstep. It’s more than enough to give you a deep connection to Dunwall, and the impulse to work to save it.

Hey Weepers? TRU here. Just here to tell you the Dishonored reviews have started appearing.
IGN - Score: 9.2 AMAZING
Gamespot - Score: 9.0
(Outsider or somebody can tell me to add more)
WARNING: The reviews contain slight spoilers (Missions number and such, but nothing major)
Looks like Dishonored is gonna be a possible GOTY contender. I personally admire how they have set-up the upgrade menu's. It appears Dishonored's Story is a pay-off to the gameplay and diversity. Still, looks like lots of people will be talking about this one for a long time. Leave your thoughts in the comments. *Considers making personal Dishonored review*

The article, featuring an interview with Julien Roby of Arkane Studios, states that DLC for Dishonored may allow access to new characters and locations. The island of Serkonos was mentioned as an example. Roby also briefly mentions the misconception that Dishonored is an open-world game.
So, if the DLC does end up exploring new characters and settings, players may be able to explore more of Dishonored's finely-crafted world outside of just Dunwall. If that is indeed the case, then I'm looking forward to it already...Read more >

Dishonored is a one-of-a-kind game. With its unique graphics and gameplay, it is one of the surprise titles of this year that manages to impress all. Drawing inspiration from games such as Half-Life, Assassin's Creed and various others, for me it seems to combine the best part of all these games - and that's what makes Dishonored one of my potential Game of the Years.
In the mission I played at Gamescom 2012 I was tasked with finding and abducting Anthon Sokolov, the Academy of Natural Philosophy, and the Royal Physician of Dunwall. It is far from easy to get to him though, as his mansion is heavily guarded by the City Watch. It's up to Corvo to find himself a way inside.
And finding that way inside is exactly what makes Dishonored stand out…Read more >

Arkane Studios made a big splash today when they announced a stunning all-star voice cast for Dishonored.
Academy Award winner Susan Surandon joins Dishonored as Granny Rags, the blind and destitute former leader of Dunwall. The city of Dunwall itself speaks, in a way, through loudspeakers scattered around the city. The esteemed and iconic Carrie Fisher voices the governments propaganda broadcast throughout Dunwall.
The prolific Brad Dourif plays the role of Piero, the inventor behind Corvo's Mask. The always suave John Slattery of Mad Men fame voices Admiral Havelock, a loyalist support, and Michael Madsen voices Daud, another mysterious assassin that lurks around Dunwall.
