Ayla and Umbra are back!
Hey StarFam! Today we’re celebrating our 500th weekly update! Thank you to all our old players and new who are reaching this milestone with us!
Meet Ayla and Umbra!
Gary Goldtooth is back in Moorland for the next three weeks and he’s not alone! Ayla and Umbra have returned just in time to celebrate our 500th update! These magical horses have close connections to the cycles of the Moon...
You’ll find Gary’s camp in Moorland, close to Old Jasper’s Barn. Just head out on the road between Moorland and Fort Pinta and you can’t miss him—or the special horses.
★ Ayla is a shy but amazingly loyal creature who forms close bonds with its rider. The northern lights are its favorite sight - maybe because they resemble its own beautiful coat?
★ Umbra loves the dark and enjoys watching fireflies during long nights in the woods. This majestic runner has a very high body temperature due to its fiery mane and is said only to be seen in the wild under the pale light of the new moon.
Ayla and Umbra are just as beautiful in their normal horse coats...
...as they are in their true magic forms!
Ayla and Umbra can join your stable for 950 Star Coins each and just like Andalusians, they know how to perform the Spanish Walk! To walk the walk like a pro, hit the spacebar when Ayla or Umbra is standing still.
You will not be able to change the mane style of Ayla or Umbra.
Along with these beautiful horses, Gary is also selling two unique pets! The Moonlit Magic Fox and the Ember Enchantment Cat are close companions of Ayla and Umbra, and will join your family for 450 SC each.
Hold up though—if you need to stock up on Star Coins, a special bundle featuring Star Coins AND these pets is available this week, so keep an eye out!
These lunar pets harness magic from the moon
Ayla and Umbra will be available until the Wednesday Update on June 23rd, when Gary Goldtooth will leave Jorvik again.
Bye-bye to automatic horse slow down
It's time to give your fingers a break! We heard it was pretty annoying for you desktop players to keep pressing the W-key to maintain your horse’s speed. So we removed the auto slow down function! Your horse will stay at a continuous speed until YOU decide to change it.
Press “E” to interact!
For those missing the W-key—now introducing the E-key function! When you come across things in the world that you can interact with, such as characters in the game, you will notice an “E” hovering above them. You can press the E-key instead of clicking to interact with them, whichever you prefer!
If you get sick of seeing the hovering “E”, you can turn it off in settings. The E-key will still work regardless.
Updated Fort Pinta Race
We updated some of the props in the Fort Pinta race hosted by Sindra. This is just a minor update that won’t affect gameplay. It will just make the race look a little bit fancier!
Video of the week!
Every week we’re sharing one of our fun videos - sometimes a brand new one, sometimes a nostalgic throwback! Here’s the video of the week:
Coming NEXT WEEK!
Get ready for Jorvik’s most colorful celebration!
Have an amazing week!
Love from your Star Stable Team ♥
