It’s the end of your first day working as a guide at the Hyde Park Barracks. The rooms are dark and empty, but it feels like you’re not alone.

As you lock the front door, someone taps your shoulder. Turning around, you see a ghostly figure in a long white dress. Her face is wrinkled with age and worry.

“You have to help me find my son,” she says.

“Who are you?” you ask, your voice shaking. “Why do you need my help?”

She drifts across the courtyard. Curious, you follow her.
