About the Story

In this game you assume the role of SIR IGNATIUS GRIMWOOD, a celebrated actor of the period. It was near the end of August 1886 and the theatre had one hour earlier been filled with all the hustle and bustle of the drama-loving public.

Suddenly there was a loud "THUD" followed by a piercing cry. It was the voice of OBADIAH HARDY, a fellow thespian, and he was being assailed by someone. GRIMWOOD ran to the scene of this terrible act but before he arrived there he heard a sharp blow being delivered. As he reached the foyer he observed BERT ROSENBERG, a ruthless and a callous criminal, standing over the body, but as GRIMWOOD yelled "What have you done to him!", ROSENBERG ran off in the direction of the stalls. Following close on his heels, GRIMWOOD sprinted into the belly of the darkened theatre, only to find himself leapt on by ROSENBERG and knocked to the floor. When GRIMWOOD recovered his composure ROSENBERG was gone.

Some days later HARDY was still clinging dearly to his life and GRIMWOOD vowed to set out and track down ROSENBERG in order to bring him to justice. His only clue, the knowledge that ROSENBERG's henchman, a certain JEREMIAH PLANTAGENET, was residing at a hotel in the nearby village of CREIGHTON. Can YOU guide GRIMWOOD in his search for this ruffian?
