Storyline

You are a black staff with a human head. You belong to Major Thomas Weir, the infamous Wizard of West Bow and one of Edinburgh’s most prominent ghosts.  

The once respectable Major was known for his impassioned sermons before confessing to unspeakable crimes in the 17th century. His ghost haunts the West Bow for all eternity, wielding you with mighty bloodlust. 

But now he has gone missing, you suspect in search of redemption. You must bring him, and those who might have aided him, to heel.

Had problems initially to find the app link etc. after paying for it on a different website. Had to contact support, who were quick and efficient. Unfortunately due to the initial set up this caused my phone to die dedpite at the starting point it was on 100%. Our last clue had to be entered back at the hotel. Overall a lovely time exploring the area on a quest, would recommend.

Nice little tour around the creepier parts of Edinburgh, following a ghostly history of the Old Toon.
