When you hear the alarms in the courtyard tonight make a break for the front gate. Jump from the bridge and swim to the sewer entrance. You won't get another chance now that the Empress's assassin has escaped.
Watch out for the rats.
"You won't get another chance now that the Empress's assassin has escaped.".
THE EMPRESS'S ASSASSIN IS CORVO.
Daud is the Empress's assassin, not Corvo. Everyone just thinks Corvo is. But still, you make a valid point.
