A quick reminder of how the game plays out?

The Story

How did you find yourselves locked in a haunted crypt you ask yourselves?


Well, to cut a long story short…


This crypt is well known in the local area for being haunted. The crypt dates back to medieval times and contains the remains of warriors and knights. The ghost is said by some to be that of historian explorer Christian Stapleton from the early 20th century who entered the crypt on one of his explorations and never returned.


Always up for a challenge you decided to investigate the mystery and go into the crypt to see if you could find out what happened to this intrepid explorer.


As you entered the crypt you heard a deep rumbling noise and the ground began to shake. In no time at all the rumbling grew louder and it felt as though the whole place was shifting on its foundations. As dust began to fill the air you noticed out of the corner of your eye a previously hidden solid stone door sliding across the exit. As you realise what is happening you make a run for the exit but before you can escape the door is closed and you are trapped inside…


Gaining your composure, you reach for your torches and start to look around, there must be another way out…
