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.
good fun and learnt lots

This was so much fun and a great way to explore the darker side of Edinburgh. I particularly enjoyed the attention to history and landmarks that are often missed in other tours. it would be a great adventure with a friend or a group that lets you discover the city and search for things. I also really loved its approach and balance of history with you as a staff that comes together in the end.
