Fish are jumping out of the water. Did they smell the rain?
The snow during this Christmas season was a harbinger for the new weather system. Now you can expect real and dynamic weather effects all around the world. It may start to rain. If it is hot outside, you may hear thunder. But if it is too cold, the rain will turn into snow.
Despite the bad weather, the great masters of melee combat have improved their style. Swords and clubs are now visible during fights.
A new medicinal ring is said to offer some protection against being poisoned. Is it true or just imagination?
In the Stendhal client, the indication of new chat message is more visible now. If you are using a very old computer, you can disable weather effects to improve drawing performance.

According to popular rumors a bunny is roaming the world. It is said that he is carrying a basket of chocolate and hands out sweets to any person he meets.
The citizens of Semos have decorated their houses in an attempt to lure the generous bunny into their town.
Semos is decorated for Christmas and everyone is really excited.
Two years ago, Oh Tannenbaum was the seasonal song, this year, we picked another old German carol:
Schneeflöckchen, Weißröckchen,English version:
wann kommst du geschneit?
Du wohnst in den Wolken,
dein Weg ist so weit.
Lil' Snowflake, Lil' White Skirt,
When will you snow?
You live in the clouds
Your way is so far.
Speaking of snowflakes, it's snowing peacefully in Semos for the first time in Stendhal history. But be careful, the weather is not that nice high up in the mountains. Let's hope, Santa won't get caught by surprise.
Yay, it's time to party! Today the yearly celebration of the Mine Town Revival weeks start at the dungeon entrance north of Semos city. We have fun games, food and drinks. The popular Sokoban game and paper chase are back as well.
Semos is decorated in a mystic theme. But keep your eyes open, there may be real secrets hidden behind the scenes. For example, Ados children are passing cryptic messages forth and back about their observations.
There are, however, other forces at play, too, pushing hard for more transparency. If your computer is fast enough, that is.
