    The world of Stendhal was hit by a form-destroying curse. While Stendhal is stable now, it will take a lot of work in another world to undo the effects of this curse.

    Join us at #arianne on freenode if you like to contribute to Stendhal.

    It started slowly at first. Someone put up a sign in Semos city claiming that "the world is going to end". Well, most people did not think much about it; just a confused person probably. Someone else even answered with a philosophical question: "What did God do before he created the world?"

    But then more and more strange reports came in: Gnome village was overrun by slime monsters and was begging for help. Snakes appeared near witches, despite them having given up their summon magic more than five years ago.

    Some people still though about this as a practical joke. But the situation got worse by the minute. The next sign said: "Zombies at Semos walls, a death in bank! Oh, my god?!" Confidential reports included messages about a dangerous baby angel near Orril River and about something deadly happening to Stendhal Financial Sphere, most notable in Magic Bank. Zombie rats in Semos Dungeon and on the ship to Athor.

    Panic sat in. This is insane! More reports came in about Skeletons, Demons, Zombies and other deathly creatures all over the world and even above the clouds. But there was hope: Slowly but surely courages adventures fought back at many small battles all over the world. When the message hit home, that Gnome Village was freed, the balance flipped and the good forces started their trip to win this war.

    In an last desperate gasp, the powers of evil casted a dark curse: Many creatures, animals and even some people lost their form and dissolved to sparkling dots. The world of Stendhal is safe for now, thanks to the help of courages adventures. But the effects of the curse can only be undone by lots of work in another world.

    The year is coming to an end and the people are just starting to celebrate this time of the year.

    Semos is nicely decorated for christmas. There are rumors out there telling Santa could be spotted soon.

    The citizens of Semos have learned a new Christmas song: "O how joyfully". After "Snow Flake Little White Skirt" last year and "Oh Christmas Tree" the year before, is this the start of a tradition?

    Imagine: No need to have an eraser at hand for book keeping of how many creatures were killed for your tasks. No erasing and new writing of kill counts anymore? Sounds good, yes? Luckily this imagination starts now to become true. The number of killed monks for the Kill Monks quest is noted with tally marks in your travel log. Isn't that way easier than before?

    It's almost time to party! The annual Minetown Revival Weeks will start in early October. According to rumors, Kirla will join the festival with her own booth. She is famous for her ability to create pictures from your memories.

    The citizen of Semos are still busy preparing the party. They are looking for a volunteer to help with this year’s paper chase. Will someone step up in time?

    In other news: A trader called Mizuno has been spotted near Ados. He sells ice arrows for black pearls. They might come in handy, should you ever end up in hell.

    Please download Stendhal again as there will be no automatic update to version 1.20. We accidentally uploaded our private code signing key to an Open Source repository on GitHub.

    We take security very seriously, therefore the updater double checks every update by verifying the signature before installing it. With the second check not being trusted anymore, we decided to release an updater with a new set of keys.

    Please note that this is only a "security in depth" measurement: The updater downloads code from trusted source only in the first place.

    But the security of computers is not all, that is important: When you are diving under water, make sure that your scuba gear is safely attached. If you lose it, you might get into serious trouble.

    On a good note: Harold will be much more friendly to customers by allowing them to prolong all their offers without having to cut through red tape.

    When archers use their bow, it will not be very visible for a boost of confidence.
