1) What difficulty level and version of Wesnoth have you played the scenario on?

Versions 1.10, 1.12, and 1.14 easy, medium and difficult.

(2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10)

5.

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

Very clear.

(4) How clear and interesting did you find the dialog and storyline of the scenario?

Also clear.

(5) What were your major challenges in meeting the objectives of the scenario?

Figuring out a strategy and what to recruit. Against an Orcish opponent made up of mainly wolf riders and grunts it's pretty much even when you have a Loyalist army of spearmen, mages and horsemen. But this campaign is fragmented between different armies and the ultimate opponent is undead, so mages and horsemen are priority.

There's a nice river running down the middle of the map, but the enemy keep is only three spaces and you don't have much gold. So I sent the solitary Horseman east and everything else went west with Delfador and Methor to take the fight south of the Orcish keep.

(6) How fun do you think the scenario is? (1-10)

5. I think for such a small opening scenario it's quite challenging and fun. The downside is the shortage of enemies to level up units, but this I guess would complicate the scenario.

(7) What, if any, are changes you would have made to the scenario to make it more fun?

Not that I can think of.

(8) Was there any event that caused you to lose the game and forced you to reload or restart the scenario?

A few. It took me a while to figure out that as a Mage of Light Methor is a back up hero unit and Orcs are sensitive to impact. I learned the hard way that when you have wolf riders you can't get away with having Mages on flat terrain at night.

I won this scenario in 10 turns by immediately sending the white mage to the village halfway between the two camps. I parked two spearman and two horseman adjacent and let the orcs attack, then I counterattacked as I brought up three more mages and Delfador. Sacrificed one mage and finished w Delfador just one point shy of level.
