Online spell book builder?
« on: September 27, 2012, 02:00:22 PM »
Is there a visual spoiler of the spells online somewhere?  Or, better yet, an online spell book builder?  I'd love to be able to tinker around with spell book design while I'm away from the actual cards.

If there isn't any resource like this right now (either an "official" one or a fan made one), are there any plans to make one?

This would be cool! Then I can work on my spell book at work.

i believe there is something like this in the works.  it would be awsome if we could build up a deck then link to it in the forums.

Even if it is a downloadable file it would work for most people. I do know that this was one of the things that we talked about at Origins and as of Gencon I was told it was something that the MW wanted to do. We have been so busy testing the next set I do not know how or if it is still in the works.

I hope it is web based so Mac users don't get left in the cold.

Web based or make it an app...  Either way it needs to happen...  My calculator ain't cutting it.  :)

It is something we are planning on doing, but I have no idea when.

One of our design team guys actually made an Excel file that could build spellbooks during our playtesting, but it is way out of date.

Well, I'm sure one will come up sooner rather than later.  Even a nice visual spoiler would be cool so that I can look at cards to plan spell books when I'm not at home.  Hell, even an all text spoiler would be sufficient  :)

Thank you for replying but I think he was looking for the full card text. I know I have not made one but if somebody has I see no reason why it could not be post since the game is now out. I just want the ok before I spend time making it.

THIS please

AW should do it here.

If they can. I have no idea what hoops would have to be jumped through, but that would be awesome. I use it all the time.

Something very similar in functionality would be just as good, I guess. :-P

Someone built an excel spreadsheet and posted it on BGG here

it looks good and functions well, you can select your mage then it will calulate the cost of spells and everything for you.

Thank you for looking for it. I have been so busy this weekend with RtR and being on call I have not had time to look,

Yes the one on BGG is a nice start, but with no text it makes it hard to build decks while you're away from your cards. I'd really like something similar to cardgamedb.com's deckbuilders. You get to see the full card and just click to add to your list.

Hello,
If the Mage War team is agreed to give the whole text and/or images of each card, and if they agree that a Fan create a free application on tablet (iPads/Android).

I will be happy to create it

PS: i think phone version will not be very user friendly...
