1) What version and difficulty level did you play the scenario on? Please do not submit feedback from pre 1.4.
1.8.4, Desert Sentinel (Challenging)

4) Do you like the storyline and the dialogues? If not what part/character lags behind or what would you like changed?
Very good.

5) Do you think the scenario was fun? Please write down some thoughts about gameplay, mood etc.
Yes, it was. As far as characters and dialogue go I liked the trolls better than the dwarves.


6) Do you think the scenario's WML is clear and commented well enough? If not which part would you like to see improved?
Clear, but there could be a few more comments.

1) Version and difficulty? 1.9.7, nightmare
4) Storyline and dialogues? Super excellent!
5) Fun, gameplay, mood, etc.? Sometimes these trivial story-telling scenarios are a nuisance, but this one was really cool. One thing I wasn't clear on was whether I should try to recruit a lot or nothing. It turns out that you should spend all your gold. You don't keep it, and the price of recruits is about to go up again. Recruiting five 20 gold units is best.

Edit: M'kay, to avoid double-posting years apart, I'll edit my post. I'm now on 1.11.15, nightmare. I just wanted to note that you can't recruit five 20 gold units, because of the small keep and upkeep costs, but you get the idea: spend all your gold. In general, the gold is confusing here, because it keeps flashing back and forth between your carryover from the previous scenario and your allocated 100 gold here, and then as it turns out you don't get to keep the 100 gold.

1) What version and difficulty level did you play the scenario on?
1.12.1, Medium

4) Do you like the storyline and the dialogues? If not what part/character lags behind or what would you like changed?
Yes, it's ok, maybe a bit lengthy. I would definitely edit out some details in Alyssa's lines: I made her a Great Mage (dealing more than twice the fire damage of a Shaman), so her being so impressed with the Shaman's fire magic is totally off. (For any Red Mage, actually.)

5) Do you think the scenario was fun? Please write down some thoughts about gameplay, mood etc.
ok.
I have a cunning plan.

Recruited units should have full MP, so that you don't have to end turn in this talk-only scenario.

But perhaps 'maintainer' is too strong a word.
