The guide

You are immersed in the Prussian Koblenz of 1870, when the fortress of Koblenz and Ehrenbreitstein was under siege due to the Franco-Prussian War. The military, police and the ten night watchmen, who patrol the fortress every night to ensure the safety of the citizens, have to be particularly careful.
