I played The Scroll all through about two years ago - and survived !!
I found the inventory system and the very
fuzzy graphics to be the most tormenting issues
Having said that, I didn't find it anyway near as frustrating as Sacred Mirror of Kofun - which I'd have given up on long before I did, if Syd hadn't been helping me every five minutes
Unfortunately, I no longer have The Scroll or I'd have passed it on to you johnboy298
