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.
Are you strong, and like to push things? Now you can test your muscles against heavy straw carts. Eheneumniranin, the half elf, will thank you for helping him.
You'll earn karma for doing this good deed, and it's now easier to see when your karma changes - whether earning it, consuming it or losing it - look for the blinking white indicator!
You can also help Klaas, if your stomach is strong enough for all the rats near him! He needs some rodent traps.
Look out for these new quests and lots of other changes including sprite fixes, a new xeno helmet, new sounds effects for fishing and much more - the full change log is here.
With Summer approaching, it's a perfect time to be outside. Look out for beautiful butterflies, hopping rabbits, and even a friendly puppy wagging his tail. These are not pets, not foes, just natural creatures to admire.
If you gather some flowers on your summer stroll, be sure to keep them for the girl elf Seremela, who needs to restock her shop. Jenny will be busy!
While outside, be aware of new sounds and sights, especially from creatures. Although, take care, the big ones look a little scarier when you attack them (but they are no more mighty than before).

With stone blocks you can push around, you better be careful not to get trapped! You can puzzle over what kind of games you want play with them. Another trap to be wary of is the giant snake pit beneath Ados caves, with king cobras and other scary reptiles you may never have seen before.
Here's a puzzle for you: how do you collect emotion crystals? The answer: by answering more puzzles! If you like the sound of this, go see Julius. There's other new items too (like a rodent trap!), some have got the attention of Mayor Chalmers and Hazel. Keep an eye out incase you are asked to collect them! While your eyes are open, keep an ear open too - there are plenty of sounds to pick up. Can you hear running water in the bathrooms, creaking ships and musical pianos? Just don't listen out too long for all the new sounds from creatures ... or they may trap you themselves! To read the rest of the changes, take a look at the full change log.
