You’ve planned everything in extreme detail. Just a fun adventure that should take three hours with your friends. You ask them to introduce their characters to each other. Wait… are they… are the roleplaying without you? Well, that’s cool, but you really need to get along with the… oh okay, they’ve gone off on a tangent. What do you mean two hours have passed? You’ve barely left the starting city. They’ve got maybe two hours to make it through your carefully prepared twelve room dungeon, or they aren’t going to get to the cool bit!

Dishonored is a roleplaying game based on the video game series of the same name. In that game, you play Corvo, an assassin and thief on a noble mission. Or if you’re me then you make a good attempt at stealth and then flee when you inevitably bang into something too loudly or run out of sleep arrows and have to knife a person in a blind panic. I’m pretty bad at it. I also haven’t finished it, so if I make any kind of Dishonored-based faux pas, then I apologise in advance.
