A guardian angel enlists you to restore the artifact that provides the land of Aquitania with its unusual luck.

"Jinxter is a text adventure computer game developed by Magnetic Scrolls and published by Rainbird in 1987 for popular 8-bit and 16-bit machines of the time as well as the 32-bit Acorn Archimedes. The game was originally conceived as an answer to Infocom's Enchanter.

Jinxter was originally written by Georgina Sinclair, the sister of Magnetic Scrolls' founder Anita Sinclair who had previously written the novella A Tale of Kerovnia for the game The Pawn, later script-doctored by Michael Bywater."

There's a neat interpreter program called Magnetix that allows you to play these old Magnetic Scrolls games, whether or not you've got the right hardware, BUT it requires OS 10.4. Crying
