Mystery of the StarEaters: The story so far...

Detective Inspector Ranney of the local constabulary has asked for your expertise with a difficult case. The disappearance of Professor Macclesbury, a university Professorwho was researching hidden subterranean areas. The Professor was a well-connected man. With pressure coming down on the Inspector from the university and the local council and a pile of unsolved cases backlogged he’s brought you in to lend a hand. He’ll give you everything he’s got on the Professor in his case-file but the rest is up to you. Out of time and out of luck, he’s counting on you to help solve this mystery - but everything isn’t quite as it seems and a dark cloud of conspiracy hangs over the city. With twists and turns that include a thousand year-old legend and a mythical ancient treasure this is one adventure that you’ll never forget.


Appearance of the Obeli: The story so far...

The year was 1813, while researching in the family archives a young John Crichton-Stuart - 2nd Marquess of Bute, came across a long forgotten text that seemed to speak of the supernatural. Very soon the three symbols from the manuscript started appearing around the city. After a week the Marquess had decoded it as some kind of ritual and their meanings as: truth, fire and death. Arriving at the scene the next day he was too late, an innocent woman was found murdered nearby.

Now, over 200 years later, it could be happening again. Having received a ominous video message Detective Ranney has once again enlisted your help with this new case. It's been a week already and the race is on, with the Marquess' old notes and contemporary clues, you must solve the mystery of the Obeli and save the next victim before it's too late.

On event days players need to bring their printed tickets to the collection point from 10am-12pm.

Players then have until 4pm to finish the game - it should take between 2-3 hours to complete.

The two games are independent of each other so you can play both or either.
