6

Clear.

(5) What were your major challenges in meeting the objectives of the scenario?
It's easy to underestimate the amount of damage Zombies can do at night. And arcane enhanced elvish champions are actually too good at killing Zombies.

Good. 7/10 Nice map, spooky atmosphere.

1) What difficulty levels have you played the scenario on?
1.10.7 - Normal

(2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10)
7 - I had just 85 starting gold so I wasn't able to recruit many troops. Luckily I had an Elven Champion surviving and so I gave him some holy water and supported him with two enchantresses, Kalenz and Chantal. It was a little bit luck based but in the end everything worked out nicely.

(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?
It combined the two storylines and the sudden appearance of Delfador was nice.

(5) What were your major challenges in meeting the objectives of the scenario?
Keeping Chantal alive while killing the leaders.

(6) How fun do you think the scenario is? (1-10)
9 - It was a nice scenario and Delfadors troops coming in made it even better.

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

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

(1) What difficulty levels have you played the scenario on?
1.12.2 normal, enough gold to hire a full round of 2lvl units
(2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10)
6
(3) How clear did you find the scenario objectives?
updated objective is lying: when Delfador arrives, objective says "kill all enemies", but actually it is same "kill all leaders" - this made me waste two more turns hunting skeletons with my elves.
(4) How clear and interesting did you find the dialog and storyline of the scenario?
good.
(5) What were your major challenges in meeting the objectives of the scenario?

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

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

i must say that reapers and nighstlakers (or whatever those things are called) flying out of the mist looks really horrifying, especially considering how i've been playing with those before and experienced how hard it may be to deal withthose. thankfully, i had enough of both variations of 2lvl druids to not lose anybody in my elvish party. sadly, in Delfador's party Clogrin the royal guard was harvested. RIP in spooky forests :c

(1) What difficulty level and version? the middle medium mode. using 1.0.4 on iOS (not jailbroken) so not sure how to upload my saved replay.gz
(2) How difficult? (1-10) 8
(3) How clear did you find the scenario objectives? clear.
(4) How clear and interesting? the story is very interesting. Good background info.

(5) Major challenges?
Only 100 starting gold
The wiki said we will face only level 1 & 2s but not true in my case. Spectres, Nightgrunts, and Draugs joined in.

With only 100 gold I had just 5 recalls, but it was enough. A Sharpshooter, 2 Enchantress and 2 Outriders. I Outriders are so useful in long range attacks. Gave Holy water to Kalenz and the Outriders.

I just went counter-clockwise around the lake. Moved west as quickly as possible to take the green leader. Then moved southeast to avoid getting overrun with Spectres, Nightgrunts, Wraiths, and numerous Skeletons in the dark. Took out the southern purple necromancer, then moved east. More bad guys along the way including a Banebough. Many come out of the water at dark.

On Turn 12, Delfador shows up in the southeast with 4 White Mages, 3 Shock Troopers, and a Royal Guard. IBut really did n't need him at this point, just had the northeast knight left to take. Leveled Chantal to Shyde and one enchantress to a Sylph.

*** Save the mages and the Royal Guard and shock trooper. They carry over as free units in the next scenario.

(6) Fun? (1-10) Very fun! One of my favorite scenarios!
(7) Changes? good as is
(8) Reload or restart the scenario?
Yes, because I got cornered once.

The objectives are extremely unclear. The starting objectives are "Defeat all enemy leaders", then when Delfador shows up it changes to "New objectives: Defeat all enemies."

This would seem to imply that now you have to kill every enemy unit, however you still only have to kill the leaders.
