Magnetic Scrolls Chronicles   offline
Great site on Magnetic Scrolls and their games with a superb design.
Note: Peter's site went offline some weeks ago and unfortunately I was not able to get in touch with him yet. His site carried some invaluable interviews with former Magnetic Scrolls wizards. I hope Peter's site will reappear soon. To preserve the interviews I uploaded a dump of Peter's site that I took mid of 2015.
