At the beginning of April 2016 Peter Verdi's Magnetic Scrolls Chronicles website went offline. So far all my attempts to contact Peter failed. His site carried some invaluable interviews with former Magnetic Scrolls people. To preserve the work I temporarily uploaded a dump of his site taken in summer of 2015. All you can see below is 100% Peter's work! Hopefully his site will reappear soon! Peter, if you read this, can you contact me?

Remember how it's like to ride on a cloud? How it feels to be squashed by a bus, or how to get that damned gold disc from Micky? Well, here's your chance to relive all these situations.

Have a chat with the devil in THE PAWN, ransack an entire island in THE GUILD OF THIEVES, restore luck itself to a whole country in JINXTER, uncover a conspiracy in CORRUPTION, become an inter-dimensional secret agent in FISH!, an ancient god in MYTH, walk in the footsteps of Alice in WONDERLAND and inherit a haunted mansion in THE LEGACY.
Become a part of the fantasy of Magnetic Scrolls - you certainly won't regret it . . .

The Kingdom of Kerovnia - Page One
taken from "Official Secrets"' "Confidential" magazine, issue 8; author unknown
Lands of magic and mystery have always been a favourite place for adventurers to travel. And Kerovnia is no exception. Dreamt from the minds of those dark denizens of Magnetic Scrolls, this land has featured in two of their games and has left many followers eagerly awaiting a return to the bizarre stretches of the imagination that make it up (Footnote # 1). It all started in The Pawn, where you are thrown headlong into a power struggle that surrounds the court of the King, being nothing more than a casual onlooker caught up in the political struggle for the throne. More nefarious activities were highlighted in your second trip to Kerovnia in The Guild of Thieves, where you are set the task of proving your legedermain in the fortified home of a holidaying baron and, basically, stealing all his treasures. So here is a look within the Encyclopedia Kerovnica (Footnote #2) at some of the strangeness and oddities of this phantastical realm in ...
The Kingdom Of Kerovnia


"Once upon a time (to coin a phrase) there was a fairy land called Kerovnia, ruled by King Erik and his Queen, Jendah II, which nestled cosily between the great Nattus mountain valley and the Aquatica Sea.

Not a lot is known of the period before the original King Erik, yet as is hinted in Gringo Baconburger's autobiography, 'Gringo!', the reasons for this seem to be a vast cover-up operation on a scale hitherto

Starting with the rise of the Royal family and the establishment of the monarchy via murder and deception, it goes on to tell the magnificent PR coups later performed which had each of the many peoples of Kerovnia thinking that the Royals were 'theirs'.
