A scroll is a document written or drawn on parchment and then rolled into a tubular shape for transportation. The scroll may be tied in place with ribbon or string, or for more official or permanent documents it can be wrapped around a straight stick, that allows for easy re-rolling of the parchment. Scrolls may also be placed into hard scroll cases for long-term storage and protection from the environment.
Scrolls In Games
Scrolls in video games are often imbued with magical
powers, and can enhance a character's abilities in special ways. This relationship of scrolls to magic and mysticism can be observed in pen-and-paper role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons
. In that game, scrolls are a way for wizards
to write down magic spells for later activation. Scrolls in video games carry on that idea, such as with magic scrolls that grant a one-time casting of a magic spell. In some action games, scrolls are used as a commodity that fuels a character's special abilities; this is the case in The Legend of the Mystical Ninja
where a player's supply of scrolls are expended to use special Jutsu attacks.
