Idea for a new category where you complete game with the least amount of blinks possible. I tried it a few hours ago and as far as I can tell 8 blinks is the minimum, which are all done in the void when you first meet the outsider. It was pretty fun to run the game without using blink. What do you guys think?

something akin to the "No Powers" runs in D2 could be cool

You don't need a "official category" to run the videogame.
We've done this already, I doubt anybody cares anymore - bottom line is that categories like this are very unlikely to be added, considering that even 100% is thought to be a misc. category.

I understand that everyone wants to have their bloody runs on a leaderboard. but if we succumbed to that we'd have about 150000000000000 categories and that's a big yikes.

I understand you don't need an "official category", that's why I've already run it multiple times. I don't care if it's official or unofficial I just want a place to post times and take part in competition. Furthermore, the type of run I am suggesting has been asked for multiple times already anyway, it's not some mega niche rule set that I came up with.
Also, if you're concerned with having too many different types of runs on the leader board why not make Dishonored category extensions? I'll moderate for you.

Feel free to post your run here on the forums, that way if people want they can compare to that one, and if (big if) the interest is as big as you say I'm sure that the need for the category will be obvious from said post. 🙂

Uploading it to YouTube now, should be up in a few hours. Time is around 50 min if you're curious.

There is a difference between what youre doing and old blinkless (ref: https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​Dishonored/​thread/​touag) this would probably be considered minimum blink / minimum powers or something similar. Very cool though! You only used the 8 required blinks in outsider, right?

Changed the title of the video to minimum blink. Yes only 8 blinks used and the only power used is agility.

Is this possible without agility, do you reckon?

Probably, the levels where I can see it being a problem are the Royal Physician, Return to the Tower and Kingsparrow Isle. Worst case scenario you just do a spring razor jump or something like that. Personally I don't think it would be as fun to run as minimum blink, just because I like the movement options agility gives you.

After some attempts, I have concluded that it's impossible to do no agility and only 8 blinks, due to you being stuck in the vat at the start of the flooded district. 1 additional blink is needed.
