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 . . .

Walkthrough for "Corruption" - Part One
taken from Aminet

You have done well in the Scott Electronics deal. David Rogers offers you a partnership in Rogers and Rogers (you are Derek Rogers). You get a BMW and a different office on the second floor. Margaret Stubbs is your secretary. David's office is on the floor below, you must go through his secretary's office to get to it.

You are carrying a briefcase (contains a personal organiser and the Times), and wearing a jacket (pocket has a credit card and keys), tie, trousers, shirt

David's secretary is Theresa Jenkins. The company lawyer is Bill Hughes. David gives you a list of early bookings and tells you to take it to the dealings room at the end of the corridor. He gives an envelope to Margaret and says for her to sign the cheque and take it to him by 11:30. He has to sign an affidavit for Bill.


Follow David and "listen at wooden door". You hear that Bill has the affidavit in his car. He gives David the keys and says to put it in his safe.

Go to the dealings office. Someone takes the list from you and says the Fraud office is looking for David. You'd better tell him. Go to the bathroom and into the cubicle. Open the cistern and see a bag of white powder. Put it back and close the cistern. David goes into the bathroom at 9:30. After he leaves, you see the bag has gone. The mirror has scratches on the surface. If you ask Theresa about the powder, she says David may know something about it.

Note - if you ask the chemist about the powder, he can't help.

Go to Margaret and get the letter. She says she was going to take it to David but you can. Look in it. Read it and examine the cheque. It's addressed to Blue Dolphin Security, 22 London Rd, EC2 and the cheque is made out to a Mr Charpontier for 60,000 pounds. Go to Bill's office and get the magazine from his desk. Read it.
Go to Theresa's office. At 10:00 she leaves and goes to the bathroom. Open the drawer of the desk, get the brass key and use it to unlock the door to David's office. Go in. On the desk is a cassette. Get it. Go back out, lock the door and close the drawer.

Get the perfumed letter from the shredding machine. (Theresa won't let you get it if she's there, if you ask her about it she says it's from one of his women, I have to shred them all). Examine the letter. It's in your wife's handwriting. Read it.

Go to the carpark. Inside the Volvo you can see a folder. Unlock the BMW with the keys from your pocket. Get in and put the cassette in the player. You hear a doctored version of a conversation you had with David. Open the glove compartment and get the screwdriver from inside it.

Note:- DON'T use the car as it blows up!

Leave the BMW and break the window of the Volvo with the screwdriver. Get folder, open it, read affidavit. It says David didn't know anything about the Scott Electronics shares. (This must be done before 11:25 when David collects the folder.)

Go to your office and open the filing cabinet. Get everything from it - an amended ledger and a share certificate. The ledger shows the expenses relating to your department. If you read it, you find that your department is well in the black and making a healthy profit. The certificate is for 20,000 shares in Scott Electronics. (This must be done before 11:30(ish) when David comes up from the car park and gets them - if you've taken them but are in the office he asks if you've seen them, he then goes to Bill's office and you can hear them arguing about you); Put everything in the briefcase.

At 11:00am, Margaret leaves the office. If you hadn't collected the envelope, she takes it to David, then leaves in a taxi to go to lunch. Get the phone and at 11:25 you overhear a conversation between David and Bill about setting you up. One says it's too soon but they've got to move quickly to save the company and Goddard wants convictions.

At 12:00, Theresa leaves her office and goes to the park to eat her sandwiches and feed the ducks. Get the phone at 12:10 in her office, you overhear a conversation between David and Charpontier. Charpontier supplies drugs. David says you've found out about the insider dealing and may know about the coke. They're bound to find out where the money's going to. Charpontier says he'll sort it out.

NOTE:- If you ring home, a man's voice answers and you hang up.

(If you haven't done anything, at 12:24 you're arrested for insider dealing, the evidence being the share certificate, cassette and affidavit. David and Jenny are there together and you're found guilty)

NOTE:- In your organiser it says about meeting your wife for lunch at 1:00. You can do this but it isn't essential. She is dropped at the restaurant from a Porsche (David) and says she wants a divorce. She leaves in a taxi at 1.57.

Instead, go to the park and hang about near the tramp. If you examine him, he looks too young to have been on the streets too long, and his clothes are too clean. Eventually he attacks you and you end up in hospital.

NOTE:- You can get to hospital in other ways; eg: by stepping into the road twice in sucession, but you must be sent there by the tramp as you can use this as evidence.

NOTE:- BEFORE you go to hospital make sure you're wearing the clothes and all your things are in the briefcase.
