1) What difficulty levels have you played the scenario on?
Hard, 1.9.3

(2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10)
4, basic tactics were enough: I avoided enemy attacks during nighttime and sent some spearman to the north, to distract the wolves a bit. Only leveling up didn't worked as well as I wanted it to due to bad luck, when Methor often killed enemy units, instead of just weakening them.

(3) How clear did you find the scenario objectives?
Clear

(4) How clear and interesting did you find the dialog and storyline of the scenario?
Others mentioned it before, if the enemy says: "Burn", I expect, that the village is destroyed.

(5) What were your major challenges in meeting the objectives of the scenario?
None.

(6) How fun do you think the scenario is? (1-10)
6, nothing extraordinary, a decent beginning.

(7) What, if any, are changes you would have made to the scenario to make it more fun?
A bit more gold for the enemy leader.

(8) Was there any event that caused you to lose the game and forced you to reload or restart the scenario?
No

The villages should get burned up. I took the liberty of making the code myself.
Code: Select all

    [event]
        name=capture
        [filter]
            type=Wolf Rider,Goblin Pillager
            side=2
        [/filter]
        [message]
            speaker=unit
            message=_"Grooar! Burn! Burn! Ahahaha..."   # wmllint: no spellcheck
        [/message]
   [/event]

   # This makes the villages burn up
   [event]
        name=capture
      first_time_only=no
        [filter]
            type=Wolf Rider,Goblin Pillager
            side=2
        [/filter]
        [terrain]
            x,y=$x1,$y1
            terrain=Gg
        [/terrain]
      
      {RANDOM 1..4}
      [switch]
         variable=random
         [case]
            value=1
            {PLACE_IMAGE scenery/village-human-burned1.png $x1 $y1}
         [/case]
         [case]
            value=2
            {PLACE_IMAGE scenery/village-human-burned2.png $x1 $y1}
         [/case]
         [case]
            value=3
            {PLACE_IMAGE scenery/village-human-burned3.png $x1 $y1}
         [/case]
         [case]
            value=4
            {PLACE_IMAGE scenery/village-human-burned4.png $x1 $y1}
         [/case]
      [/switch]
    [/event]

It makes the scenario quite interesting.

Nope

It's fine

The map is good

I pretty much completely agree with Santosis. All I'd like to add is

1) Some advice about using (im more used to Horsemen but soon realized I didn't have the budget), so 1) using the spearmen was a surprise to me 2) I didn't know what to do when they leveled up.
2) This is surprisingly hard for a first scenario when you consider how easy most the scenarios are. It seems easier than HTT on normal and I was going to suggest bumping the label to Novice.
3) Some indication that
Spoiler:
would have been nice.....

santosis wrote:(1) What difficulty levels have you played the scenario on?
Medium, 1.8.5

(2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10)
6 - Tough for a first scenario, but certainly not impossible. I recruited only one keep's worth of units (one cavalry, one mage, 4 spearmen). I lost my mage and my cavalry, and leveled my hero and one spearman.

(3) How clear did you find the scenario objectives?
Kill jerkface. Got it.

(4) How clear and interesting did you find the dialog and storyline of the scenario?
I thought the master could have talked more to his student.

(5) What were your major challenges in meeting the objectives of the scenario?
Keeping my hero alive against healthy numbers.

I left two spearmen in my castle to protect the flank (they killed two wolf riders), and sent the rest of my troops to hold the river. I advanced during the day.

I finished in turn 21/24, so time was tight. I will carry 112 gold over into the next scenario.

(6) How fun do you think the scenario is? (1-10)
8 - Quite a fun puzzle to protect a weak hero against level ones. I would say its quite well balanced.

(8) Was there any event that caused you to lose the game and forced you to reload or restart the scenario?
Many restarts to survive the first great wave of wolf-riders.

Normal 1.10.2
Difficulty: 2
Objectives: 100% clear
Dialogue: Pretty good. The part about upcoming war is ominous, i imagine that goblin riders are probably sent as scouting parties to decide which villages are going to need to be strong-armed by the larger orcs.
Challenges: Deciding when it was time for Delf to stop recruiting and join the fight.
Fun: 7
Changes: none
Reloading: none
Fate is against me.

A little dull dialog, but nice scenario. Actually burning villages would just encourage bad strategy, I would change the goblin dialog instead. I maximized XP extraction (ceding a lot of villages to get more enemies), got over 100 xp to two mages and delfador, 1 swordsman and another experienced spearman.
