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


"Myth" was entirely written by Paul Findley, who had done the Commodore 64 conversions of the older Magnetic Scrolls games. The game was never sold to the public. It was especially written as a welcome present for new members of "Official Secrets" - a short lived, british adventure club run by former Magnetic Scrolls accountant/business advisor Tony Rainbird.

"Myth" was a mini-adventure, consisting of a couple of puzzles and only four pictures. A 'hidden' application for "Official Secrets" came with the "Corruption" manual.

The founder of the "Official Secrets" club was none other than Tony Rainbird, founder of the British Telecomsoft label "Rainbird". After he had established "Rainbird" as a brandname in the computergames industry he left British Telecomsoft to become the accountant/business advisor for Magnetic Scrolls, later founding the "Official Secrets" adventure club and "Special Reserve" (with Anita Sinclair), a software and hardware mail order venture, and "Freeola", a company that offered free website hosting.
