Synopsis

Plot

As famed sleuth, Basil Byron, you have been engaged to investigate the recent strange behaviour of Lord Alvin Munroe, the well known British adventurer. Lord Munroe disappeared from public life two years ago after returning from an expedition to Egypt. At that time, he shunned reporters and fled the docks in a private coach taking with him a large collection of crates and sea chests. It is believed that he retreated to his estate in the west.

As you cross the moors in your coach, Castle Keep is silhouetted against the night sky. A shudder of apprehension runs down your spine.

Completely illogical game. Horrible, horrible parser. I don't often give up on a game once I've started it, but I made an exception for this. Even with the solution on here, it lacks any trace of playability.
