The secret of Saint-Rumoldus

Escape experience 1

An old legend tells the tale of the cowardly murder of Saint-Rumoldus, patron saint of Mechelen, around the year 770. In the vicinity of Mechelen, deep in the forests of the rural town of Hombeek, Rumoldus realised his plan to build a small church.


Much against the custom of his time, he paid his construction crew a fair salary for their work, leading the locals to suspect that Rumoldus had to be exceptionally wealthy. During an evening stroll on the church grounds one night, Rumoldus was mugged by two men. They beat him to death and robbed him of what little money he had on him, before dumping his body in the river Dijle and fleeing the crime scene. A couple of days later, a passerby noticed a magical light shining over the water. Rumoldus' body was recovered from the water and serenely laid out in the church.


Ever since, a devoted congregation has been watching over his grave and church. Every now and then, 'miracles' occur in the church of Saint-Rumoldus: tears start to well up in the eyes of the saint statues, candles suddenly light up near the shrine...

That is why believers from all corners of the country come to visit the church to honour Saint-Rumoldus.


Out of the blue, you receive a call from pastor Albay, nowadays the custodian of the church. Impressed and driven to despair by recent "abnormal activities", the priest was forced to flee from the church. He now needs your help to find out what is going on and to discover the cause of the miracles...
