There is a strange phenomenon taking place at Valentines Mansion. Julien Slade has invited you to help investigate, but is all as it seems? There are ghostly lights and unusual supernatural goings on, Slade tells you that something very strange is taking place; the spirits in the building are waking up. Can they be trusted to guide you? Your team will embark on an hour long journey around the mansion; the house that Slade believes is the hiding place for an ancient artefact from the ill-fated ship, the East Indiaman Valentine, a mysterious but cursed item. Is this all just an elaborate hoax, or will the mansion take its revenge?
