The Dishonored series - we can call it a series now, right? - is all about letting you run amok with otherworldly powers, using them as you see fit to create a sandbox of righteous vengeance. With the introduction of Emily's power set in Dishonored 2, players are finding all sorts of ways to wreak havoc in Karnaca. But one power, Domino, is shining brighter than the others.
