Yes, since 0.8.24 you can change the difficulty from peaceful to normal in the "Kingdom" Menu while playing (first button on the top).

It's good to know that it's possible, but I still cannot find the option. What am I missing? – oKtosiTe Feb 14 '15 at 8:06
@oKtosiTe I updated the answer to reflect the location of the button to change the difficulty. – user28015 Feb 14 '15 at 11:34
Wonderful! I'm pretty new to this game, but it would've cost me some effort to locate that. Thanks for updating; upvote added. – oKtosiTe Feb 14 '15 at 12:54
