Winter Wolves: Magic Stones UB Update, Game Editor Coming
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The latest Winter Wolves newsletter revealed a few bits of news for the Magic Stones RPG card game. A new Universal Binary update has been released, bringing the game to version 1.2.3 and now requiring at least OS X 10.3.9 to run. The update improves performance on all Macs but may not work with previous saved games.

Here's a list of changes in the update:

added a new warning before battle starts in Gather Artifact mode: if your inventory is full, and the selected place contains an artifact, the game will tell you to make room for it on the inventory to avoid losing it
fixed a bug that was causing artifacts to show only after battle and not in the map overview
fixed a bug that was causing mana value to go negative if Mannaz spell fizzled too many times
fixed a bug that was causing all avatars to end their turn when casting Othila, Teiwaz and Kennaz spells

Important Note:
We updated the game to Universal Build requiring minimum Mac OS X 10.3.9, however the old savegames aren't guaranteed to work with the new universal build. We apologise for this in advance and recommend to start a new game from scratch.
The universal build though won't have any future savegame problems and will also run faster on your Mac PPC/Intel.

The second Magic Stones news update is the announcement of the last free expansion pack for the game. Titled Lost Temples Island, the expansion will add a new quest and the fifth avatar stone of Life and Spirit. The expansion should be available this Fall.

Finally, Winter Wolves revealed work on an editor for the game to give users the ability to add their own quests.

Probably we will release an editor for the game so users will be able to add their own quest, but at the moment of writing we're unable to say if will be included in this expansion as well or if will be released later (probably next year).
