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 . . .

This is the "Files" section of "Corruption". Here you will find all the hard facts about the game, like general information, a plot synopsis and trivia - in other words, these are "Corruption Files".

Plot Summary

Finally you made it - a partnership in Rogers and Rogers, the London based broking firm you work for. You have been working on a partnership in the company for years and with that Scott Electronics deal your dreams have finally come true. And what a deal it was. Touch of genius, if you say so yourself. And when David Rogers finally offered you that long-awaited (and rightfully deserved) partnership in Rogers and Rogers, you obviously accepted. Of course, moving into senior management does have its benefits - like the new BMW, the salary rise and the promised, new offices. Prospects couldn't have looked any better.

Theoretically, that is. Because looking at your new office you wonder whether it was worth accepting the partnership. Same creaky old chair, same filing cabinet, same desk and still no phone. "It's only temporary." David said. "Wait until we move into the new office buildings." Mabye you'll even get rid of Margaret then, your new secretary, who, on first impressions, isn't much of an improvement either. So far the only good thing about your office is the splendid view of the square out of your window.

But put that aside your first day as senior manager at Rogers and Rogers started out quite well. You received a very warm welcome from David Rogers - now your business partner - and as you made yourself comfortable in your old chair, enjoying the view, you were ready to handle everything life would throw at you. But actually life did throw a little bit too much at you that day.

Details? Well, at the end of the day your choices are narrowed down to going to prison or spending the rest of your existence in a coffin. Why? Because somebody wants to frame you. They want to blame you for something you didn't do. How? Well, if somebody puts cocaine in your drawer, manipulates papers, produces a tape with a fake conversation and tries to make it look like you did some insider-dealing isn't proof enough, then what is? And as you start nosing around, trying to find out who is behind this conspiracy they even try to kill you. On several occasions.

But then again this isn't Stoke-On-Trent, it's London and you are in a tough business, where only the strongest and most ruthless survive and where nothing is what it seems. Where corruption is part of the day-to-day business and everybody is a predator in a suit who will do anything for money.

So you have to find out who wants to get rid of you. And why. It could be David, your partner. He was always a little bit too friendly with you. Besides, you also know about his cocaine addiction. It could be Margaret, your over-zealous secretary. It could be Bill Hughes, the company lawyer. Hell, it could even be your wife Jenny - nothing would surprise you after that scene in "Le-Monaco"'s. And who is this mysterious Mr Charpontier whose name keeps popping up on cheques and in telephone conversations?

You better find out soon because if not you'll end up either in prison or dead. In both cases your career prospects don't look too good . . .
