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 . . .

Myth is set in a world of ancient Greek gods, whose existence is threatened by the rise of Christianity. To keep up humanity's faith in the gods, Zeus, the god-in-chief, decides to set them all heroic tasks, just like the good old days.

Naturally, you're first: you are Poseidon, the god of the sea (though, incidentally, you can't swim!), tasked with recovering the Dark Helmet of Hades.

The game starts in front of the gates to the underworld. You carry the barest essentials for the task. Exits lead … ahem! Graphics in Myth are very good, and the parser is OK, but the real high point of it is the humour. If you liked Fish! you'll probably like this, because they're very similar in style: you may even prefer this, it's that good! An excellent adventure. Witty, cunning and just plain good fun!

Note: Myth is currently only available to members of Rainbird's adventure society Official Secrets. You can join this society by ringing their Sales Hotline, or by sending a cheque for or your credit card number to … Official Secrets. In return, you'll be sent Myth, together with another free game, six issues of Confidential (the adventure and role playing magazine) and membership of Special Reserve, a group which claims to offer the cheapest software service around (normally £ 5).
