  • Visit the millennia-old Egyptian monument on the bank of the Thames.

  • Find a ghost station on the London Underground. Observe the comings and goings of the Knights Templar at their own church. Uncover one of the homes of the 'Wickedest Man in the World.'

  • Visit St. Paul's Cathedral, ridden with occult symbology. Find the founding stone of London.


The mystical wards, which protected London, have failed. Shadows whisper of a curse. Demonic mumblings gather in dead ends and the narrowest alleys. Something has stirred vengeful spirits and damned this place. Occultists have dabbled too deeply, for too long, into forbidden secrets. 

You have been hired by the Black Lighthouse, a secret organization working under MI5, to locate the broken wards and decipher the cause of London's impending collapse into the abyss. 
Agent, save our souls!
