Getting to the king on time is quite a challenge, two trolls had already broken into the king's fort when I arrived.

Wesnoth 1.12, medium difficulty.
I found both hard and annoying that Garard's survival is mostly dependant on luck rather than on the player's skills...
Basically, if Garard gets poisoned, he's poised to be dead before one can bring a healer to him.
I think a WML code giving orcish assassins a 0% chance to hit Garard could prevent that?

Wesnoth 1.14.11, hardest: 'Great Mage' (difficult), no reloading during campaign; played the scenario several times

10 (in comparison with the rest of the campaign - probably the hardest scenario)
It wasnt too hard though. Even with my sloppy play (failed/aborted flanking maneuver, almost lost due to stupidly leaving the king unguarded after I already had my units down there in turn 12) and "unmotivated" preparation in previous scenarios I still won.

Ok.

Saving the King. And I wasnt sure about the "AI gets more gold scripting" - I remembered sth about not killing the orc leader as that triggers it but I am not sure this is still true. So 2nd major challenge was guessing the scripting.

Make it "hard and fair" without scripted surprises.

Getting rid of the 80% or nothing scheme (without even telling the player how much the next scenario starting gold default is) would help. While I dont think the plus-40% scheme is good its IMO at least better than the one used in this campaign.
