I never noticed that burlap cover thing on the inside of the mask (looking at the game's cover art right now). How the hell does Corvo breathe?

It's a GAME.
Nothing makes sense.

And Piero is supposed to be the "genius" who designed it. This game is crumbling apart with its inconsistency. Unless the skull head is actually one big bone charm for easy breathing inside stuffy masks.

With his mouth and nose? I don't know about you but in the cold Winter months I often wrap my scarf round the lower portion of my face to keep it warm and have no problems breathing at all. It just gets a little hot.

I didn't realise there wasn't an artistic license within the creation of masks to conceal ones identity that was directly proportionate to the reality of a game or the IQ of a fictional character... I don't know how to break it to you, but Blink, The Outsider and Animal possession aren't strictly realistic either. *gasp* Corvo is a supernatural assassin who can take possess fish, bend time, and turn people into ash when killing them. I don't think his ability to breath with a mask on really comes into question.

The difference is Dunwall is a big industrial city full of factories pumping out smoke and other pollutants, and with the likely measure of running, climbing and fighting Corvo could do, it wouldn't help to have his breathing hampered with his mask's design. And I wasn't necessarily discussing the realism of the game, but time and time again you see impractical character designs. I can appreciate it when it makes a character look cool, but big-breasted warrior women wearing v-cut suits somewhat irks me.

Anyway, I was just having some fun. Let's not turn this into a big debate.

the mask does NOT have that burlap thing in the game. he puts the mask on every time he gets in Samuels boat and takes it off every time he comes back from a mission. the inside looks like red padding but theres no burlap.

Aw damn, that's awesome.

I haven't had a chance to play the game yet. Is there a reason the mask looks so... terrifying? Is that just an assassin thing, or is there a reason behind the design?

i havent had a chance to beat it yet but so far i dont think so. this one dude that you pay to make upgrades and stuff for you made it, dont remember him saying it was for any special reason. the game is just super steampunk though so thats part of it.

Well the mask has a pretty intricate/unique design. It doesn't look like something you'd just throw together and slap on.
