Jasper: Hello. I hear the second day is when the skin really starts to come all the way off. Is that true? Or is it the itching that really gets you? Or the rats?
Martin: Jasper, isn't it? It's not so bad in here. Except I miss your wife.
Jasper: Huh. You don't scare easily, I'll give you that. That'll change.
Martin: Psst! Corvo. It's me. Overseer Martin. Corvo! Now, I knew you'd make it. I ...what a sight you are in that mask. I know who you are, and what you're here to do. And I can help. Unlock me, and I'll buy you a drink in a couple of days. By the void, I'll buy you a hundred drinks. Poor circulation, and I seem to have forgotten my mittens, so...I'd appreciate it if you could release me, or at least go gather some firewood.
Feels good to stand up straight. Thank you, Corvo. What you're here to do tonight is of the highest importance. We've got to find Emily, so kill Campbell, and make it quick. Once it's done, search his body for the journal...his notorious black book. Then get out of there. Campbell is meeting with a guard named Curnow. And word from my informant is that Campbell is going to poison him. Maybe you can use that to your advantage.
All right, I won't be of any help here, so I'll make my own way back to the Hound Pits Pub. If I see Samuel the boatman I'll tell him to pick you up in the back yard, behind the office of the High Overseer. May all the spirits guide you, and may your enemy's head hit the floor without you taking a scratch.
Male: I was just reading in the archive about the Heretic's Brand. It sounds painful. Have you ever seen the ritual?
Male 2: I've never seen the Heretic's Brand used. no. It's a rare occurrence. But I did spy the face of one so branded. A former member of our order, of course. Out on our retreat, we passed through a fishing town and saw him begging.
Male: What were his crimes?
Male 2: Who can say. The brand is reserved for an Overseer. Or even the High Overseer himself, who violates our codes and must be cast out permanently. [inaudible 00:04:03] seven strictures...
Male 3: But you never need worry about such rules.
Male 4: I will. That might be worth checking.
Male 5: What was that?! I need more men!
Male 6: Here you are! Take him!
Male 7: Things are bad. Could this city get any worse?
Male 8: Indeed. I believe so.
Male 9: Think you'll get your own squad after what happened last night?
Male 10: Chances are very good.
