General experience
The player explores famous locations as well as hidden gems of Cambridge.

Short description of the area/neighbourhood
The quest includes locations in the very centre as well as on the boundary of the centre of Cambridge.

Examples of places
  • The Mathematical Bridge, a famous wooden bridge on the river Cam, connecting the two shores of Queens' College.
  • St. Botolph's Church, a lesser known church with an interesting story.

Examples of topics for the stories
  • The myth of how Newton built the Mathematical bridge himself and how it can hold up without bolts.
  • The fact that St. Botolph is the patron of travellers (just like the players) and that from this name originates the town name "Boston", which exists in England but also, quite glaringly, in Massachussetts, USA.

Short introduction to fictional mission
The player is a detective hired to free the town from an annoying ghost.

Storyline

Odd things are happening in Cambridge. Funny flags are exposed on buildings, bicycles' lockers are swapped around and tourists are stolen their caps while they take pictures of King's Chapel. Who's having fun messing around with the town? Rumours are, the soul of someone who had to do with a forgotten College, All Souls.

You, the Cambridgeshire-famous detective Oakley Clueless, were hired to solve the mystery and bring back peace and caps to the town.
