    When you are in the arena, fighting for life and death, help from a friend is very much appreciated. Starting with Stendhal 1.35 such heroic deeds will be rewarded with an achievement.

    But not everything is a matter of life and death: Stendhal is a spare time project, which completely depends on contributions by volunteers. While it is easy to credit contributors of program code and art, it is more difficult to keep track of other kinds of contributions such as: informal bug reports and ideas, help with testing and community building. In the past, we felt overwhelmed by that task and feared that people might get upset for being forgotten. We even added a little easter egg on the login screen: The “credits” button will lead to a list of NPCs.

    Now, on Stendhal’s 15th anniversary, we want to credit every contributor properly. At this point, the list is just a start, listing only 219 contributors, and some of them with a placeholder image only. We need your help to complete it.

    In other news, we significantly improved interactions with the database. This should completely eliminate delays on login because all database actions that have an impact on logins are prioritized and moved to the front of the queue.

    There are more changes, which you can find in the change log for this release.

    Stendhal version 1.33.1 is a server only release. It fixes an exploit around the drop and selling of kokuda (Patch).

    Some boss creatures have the ability to drop a certain item, which may be used in the quest. The original creature to make use of this feature was the green dragon guarding a key in the dungeon below Orril Castle. In order to prevent players from getting lots of useless keys, the drop will only happen, if the player does not have the same key in his or her inventory already. The same logic was used for the quest related item "kokuda" by the Minotaur King. Recently an NPC called Wanda was introcuded who bought such an item for a sizeable amount of money.

    This release also includes a tiny fix to the webclient buddy list.

    A note from the development team

    Although it has only been six weeks since the last release, this one is full of new content: New zones in the Deniran region and the region of Atlantis. Fourteen new achievements. Twenty-four new creatures. Eight new items and a complete new armor set. Two new quests and two new NPCs.

    The webclient saw major improvements aswell. For example it supports long touch to open the context menu. It requires more work until it will reach feature parity with the classic client. But this release is a huge step forward.

    And most important: Have fun! If you like, join us in the development chat.

    Enjoy a treatment of your face. You can now pick your eyes and mouth as well as several types of masks and glasses. Don’t like the color of a feature? No problem, tint it. The photo on the right side shows only a very small selection of the new possibilities

    Clean your eyes and ears. There are many new sounds and improved graphics all over the world.

    But perhaps don’t listen too carefully when in a hotel in Fado. A grumpy guest might demand a decent meal and make quite a scene about it. On the plus side, there are many new food and other items. Did you get a note from Klass? It might be a good idea to follow up on it for a handy reward.
