Archibald Grim was a coldhearted miser who despised everyone in the town of Graymire. A greedy recluse, Mr. Grim only left his castle for his lucrative job as the president of First National Bank. Archibald spent his life hoarding his wealth and spewing hatred, sorrow, and despair across the city.  It was no surprise when Archibald Grim's body was found by his housekeeper this morning.  It appears that someone has slipped the chap a bit of poison.  The burning question is - who is guilty?  Is the killer an employee of the bank? A former colleague? His butler? Or might it be a family member who wants an inheritance?  The Graymire police have listed you as a suspect in the murder of Archibald Grim. You must journey to the Grim Castle at the exact time on the notice that was sent to your home. It would be dangerous not to attend, as the police might consider your absence a confession. This is where your story begins.
