    The librarians have been busy collecting information from all around the world to create an easily accessible encyclopaedia, including entries about creatures and items, quests and achievements, as well as guides about the world and for players. They even created a register of residents.

    But knowledge alone is not wisdom. Those librarians couldn't be that wise without the experience they gained for years. Equally, real warriors need to seek out into the world to become truly effective fighters. Therefore trained warriors with high attack and defense skills but little experience will notice that they are less efficient until they gain some experience. Average players, however, will not be affected by the change.

    If you need a break from studying and training, you can join us in the new garden in Fado city and relax for some time while listening to the calming sound of the city pond.

    You can also read the full full change log.

    Update: We made server-only release of Stendhal 1.14.1, which fixes an issue with the Harvest quest.

    There have been reports that rats are more aggressive towards weak people. Are they just hungry? Or is more going on? There are even rumors that hell itself has been repainted.

    With the angst about unseen forces being active, wizards have worked restlessly to strengthen the defenses. Early results of their work, increased mental abilities of ordinary people: Your intuition of your current position on the world is much clearer now. And Postman will no longer accept message for you from people, who you have mentally blocked.

    We fixed an incompability in the web-based starter, which was introduced by the latest update of Oracle Java.

    Stendhal 1.11 was released with a big party. Join the festival at the abandoned mine town in the north. Celebrate with costumes and food, quests and puzzles. But don't forget, that kobolds and slime still lurk in the mines.

    The Mine Town Revival Weeks have a long tradition in Stendhal, but there is something new every year.

    Since a girl called Susi was rescued five years ago, the Mine Town Revival Weeks became very popular with lots of spooky decorations. Many characters from all around the world got interested in the events. Those, who have to stay at home, joined in to organize a gigantic paper-chase all over the world.

    On a side note, NPCs who trade items or heal can now be spotted easily by watching out for little icons next to them.

    With all the partying going on, it is important to stay safe and secure. On login, you will be informed of your last successful and failed login attempts. You can see a complete login history for the last 7 days on the Stendhal website.

    The creatures and elves in Faiumoni might be self conscious, as they have been making some cosmetic changes. Seremela in Nalwor flowershop started a trend by dyeing her hair a beautiful violet. Many creatures followed her example and improved their appearance as well; but not as drastically. And all the shop owners have improved the look of their signs, so that sparkly items also sparkle on the signs!

    Not to be out-done, Harold has found a new way to announce new offers from players by making his own page at https://stendhalgame.org/trade/. There is a feed available, so that you can subscribe and find out about offers as they happen!

    Not all the changes in Stendhal 1.10 are visible, though. Some invisible changes will make it easier for developers to add new content in the future. For example, the handling of status icons (like poisoned) is now controlled by the server and supports multiple indicators. To read about all the other changes see the full change log.
