The Book of Stones is supposed to be a modest continuation to second chapter Steven Morell's book. Steven wrote his book in a times when '88 mode was the only standard and thus he didnt described any of modern '94-type stones. This articles purpose is to fill this gap I'd like to provide you an analysis of modern stones.
I am not going to give a throughout analysis. Steve in his book tended to estimate the stone effectiveness and speed. Those things in modern Corewar are of lower priority not only a stand-alone stone does not have a chance on modern hill but a speed is not so crucial nowadays. Rather than estimating details of lower priority I focused on the way stone works, how it enters one phase from another and so on. I hope you find it useful.
