Duke Hosts Inauguration Celebration is a written note found in Dishonored 2.
Guests at the event say that the festivities were not dampened by the absence of the Empress, who remained in Dunwall, busy with her official duties. In her place, a larger than life silver statue made in her image graced the ceremony. Always lavish and full of surprises, it is no wonder Duke Abele wishes to be known as the Joyful Duke!
The Grand Palace added that the absurd gossip regarding our ambassadors returning to Karnaca from Dunwall Tower with odd markings on their faces, uttering gibberish as if speaking a dead language, are preposterous rumors with no base in reality.
