The Second Stricture.

The Second Stricture is a book found in Dishonored.


[Excerpt from a work detailing one of the Seven Strictures]

Restrict the Lying Tongue that is like a spark in the heathen's mouth. It is such a little thing, yet from the one spark an entire city may burn to the ground. Better to live a life of silence than unleash a stream of untruth. The echoes of lies come back as the voice of the Outsider.


It can be located in the archives room of the Office of the High Overseer on a desk in a corner during the mission High Overseer Campbell.


  • This excerpt seems to have been influenced by the Bible:
    • So, too, the tongue is a little member and yet makes great brags. Look! How little a fire it takes to set so great a woodland on fire! Well the tongue is a fire. - James 3:5,6
