Episode Two - The Plot Thickens..

Journey with us to an alternative 1898, where history rubs shoulders with imagination. Where ‘what was’ is replaced by ‘what might have been’. Leagues of Adventures presents, for your edification – ‘The Dreaming Spires, episode one of the Great Game Campaign’.

“... A time when science itself stands poised to usher in a new golden age, or doom the world to terrible war.
In the ancient university of Cambridge, the scion of an aristocratic family has gone missing, unearthing a plot which threatens to plunge the British Empire into chaos.
Can the intrepid globetrotters solve the Cambridge conspiracy before it’s too late? What secrets lie hidden beneath its dreaming spires?”

Jonathan, Rachel, Nellie, Roxburgh & Ponsonby

Unfortunately the coach can't move off immediately, Alf has the horses under control but Roxburgh is in the process of climbing down from his seat to fetch the dropped shot-gun. "Hold up... we can't leave the shotgun behind." Roxburgh's portly frame swings down from the front of the coach and picks up the fallen weapon.

"F.. follow those madmen! They shot at us.. drivin' to the Rozzers is more like it!" says a very unhappy Alf.

Spoiler:
You'll have to be persuasive... if you want to try and catch up. Ohh 'Rozzers' is slang for the cops.

"The most important thing is that we get back to Cambridge before they do," says Rachel. "whether we catch up to them and stop or pass them, or whether you know of a shortcut. The fate of the British Empire is at stake! I'm sure Her Majesty would be grateful for your service. We must all do our bit for our country. Your job is just to get us there. We'll take care of the rest."

Jonathan, Rachel, Nellie, Roxburgh & Ponsonby

As soon as Roxburgh climbs back up to his position on the outside of the carriage, a suitably eager Alf gets the horses moving. Turning right onto Barton road the 'Growler' picks up speed "I can't see any lights up ahead.. I can get ya to Trinity in fifteen minutes but I can't see them other fellows."

"He is right, there's no other carriages on this stretch of the road.."

The carriage will soon have to make a left turn to head north to Trinity College, you could take Grange Road which is the first left or carry on till nearly at the river Cam (another 300 yards or so). Which way?




Spoiler:
You're already in the 'outskirts' of Cambridge, Where you are now it's about half a mile, 'as the crow flies' to Trinity (Fen House would actually be located a little more than two and a quarter miles (by road) from Trinity. It wasn't until I checked a map that I realised how short the distances would actually be.

"Which way will get us back to Trinity College faster?" Rachel asks Alf, who is after all the expert.

As their coach races down the road Jonathan begins to pack his pipe in hopes of having a smoke before they arrive back at Trinity.
