A raid is a special event where players are invited to help kill swarms of creatures which suddenly appear in one place. Usually an NPC shouts about needing help and tells you where it is needed.
There are frequently asked questions about raids.
Finding the lost girl Susi October 2009
6th March 2010 raid to say thank you for help with ongoing client quality week
There were raids on 1st, 2nd and 3rd January 2011 to welcome in the New Year. Here a player gives Bobby a <item "balloon" not found> after the raid.
Winners of simple Orcs raid near gnome village at 19th August 2011. Orcs had no chances against our brave warriors. Many thanx to Lunga who helped to low-level players.
In a show fight creatures are pitted against each other in battle. It can be one on one battles against evenly matched creatures, or one strong creature against many weaker ones. Sometimes players can bet on the outcome of the battle. Of course these fights are held within enclosed arenas so that there is no danger to watching players.
Pub quizzes are quite popular! Here are some sample questions from the first ever quiz:
- What is Ceryl's job?
- Where does Hackim Easso work?
- What's the missing girl from Ados called?
- Who is the housewife with a rat problem?
- What herb did Ilisa need to make Tad better?
- What is the name of the berry that sheep eat?
Back in March 2007, was the first ever Stendhal quiz, organised by superkym.
Bluelads4 did a quiz in Semos Tavern on 16th October 2010 where every answer could be found on the webpage or wiki
A Christmas quiz designed and run by Bluelads4 on 18th December 2010 was a great success!
superkym made a quiz on 13th March 2011 using lots of map representations, bits of images to guess and creatures noises to decipher.
Bluelads4 ran a group hunt and a quiz round after that on the 12th June 2011. Players had fun and won lots of nice items!
A short quiz on 2011-11-19 given by Bluelads4. Really nice prizes!

Hunts can take the form of a treasure hunt, hunt the cat, scavenger hunt and more! For example Grannie played a game of hide and seek with the players. She shouted clues and waited hidden to see who would turn up.
Sometimes we just have a party!
Beach Party 24th June 2007 on Athor. Skinnydipping photo not included
Spontaneous Party in Semos - check out Priest's reaction...
On the 7th of august, players meet up for a summerparty on Athor Island. At 15.30 h servertime, most of them met infront of Semos INN and walked to the ferry on Ados coast. After some issues caused by boarding on the ferry, the group was splitted into two groups... But that wasn't a problem at all. At the end, the party went over 2 hours long and included games, performances and a funny fish race. Some pictures can be found here of it:

Mine Town Revival Weeks October 2010
The Semos Mine Town Revival weeks started on the 23rd October of 2010 with some nice new mini games included and some special quests to do.
One of the new quests, the nine switches game infront of the Semos Mines entrance, gave some nice looking balloons to players who solved the little riddle of switching the arrows into the right direction.
Some players who solved the nine switches game presented her balloons in the Semos bank
Santa found his way back to Faiumoni and delivered some presents to players who met him at different places. The players enjoyed the beautiful decorated city of Semos and played different games for greeting the season.
This picture shows some players who stand infront of a wonderful decorated tree in Semos, some met Santa already :)
Enjoying some bank chat in May 2011
Some players showed up in the bank on sunday, 22 may and had fun while talking around a bit. They got the idea then of preparing some lovely screenshots which show, that love is everywhere around, especially in the Stendhal community, especially in spring and on the border to a hopefully hot summer 2011.! :) Here are the pics they made:
Maze Runner Reward Challenge
geomac organised a Maze Challenge in October 2011.
Each day from October 01 to October 15, players went to Haizen and completed the maze to accumulate points. Maze scores were compared and the top runners awarded.
cuddle won the Challenge, and the full results are at https://stendhalgame.org/news/maze-runner-reward-challenge-76.html
Winners gather at Haizen's hut
Foretaste of Paper Chase 2013
soniccuz created a pre-paper chase event in Semos City on 03. October 2013.
Paper Chase is a well known event which takes place each year during the Mine Town Revival Weeks around Semos Minetown. In October 2013, just a few days before the Minetown starts its famous event again, soniccuz created his own paper chase in Semos city in which he filled the temple with money all over the place and leads players to this treasure with scattering money arrows all around the city which all lead to the temple.
Thank you soniccuz for creating this event! :)
Mine Town Revival Weeks 2013
In october 2013, warriors all around Faiumoni celebrated the Mine Town Revival weeks again, five years after young girl Susi has been rescued from her kidnappers. The festival took place at Semos mine Town with a special Paper Chase made by Fidorea, some snacks by Caroline, a new Sokoban field by <NPC "hiro" not found> and even more games. A great event with beautiful nice people around! :)
