It seems to me that the beggar campaign should be 100% gold retained, since there is no actual battle.

Quite right.

If Londerleona dies by becoming consumed in the tunnel, the scenario doesn't end in a defeat, as it should. It might just be because I am running svn though.

Also, the tunnel can probably use a turn limit or something. I reached turn ~135 in a stalemate against the trolls as I had 2 life mages and an ancient wose stuffed in the northern corridor. The trolls wouldn't stop coming. I guess as I got the troll population low, their upkeep went down, and so many trolls would rush in a few turns later.

Wow! That's a bad stalemate. You weren't trying to fight them through a one hex aperature, were you? BTW, What version of the campaign do you have?

I was stuck in the one hex aperture when I was stalemated.

The last version in the changelog is 0.1.

It seems to me that generally the fencers were pretty useless. I couldn't manage to level any of them up.

I think there should be some way to pick the units you use in the tunnel, having the level 2 wose mage with only 1 move per turn in the cave is pretty annoying.

Anyway, thanks for an enjoyable campaign.

I thought I squashed the bug about Londerlona being squashed not causing a loss in 0.1, but apparently not.

You will find the last mission easier if you manage to level some fencers somehow. It also helps to select a quick mage for levelling. There's no point trying to fight the trolls through the one hex aperature due to the number of villages on the map. Fight them in a wider place until their numbers thin down.

When I was fighting in the one hex aperature, I had only 3 units, so I probably would have died if any two of my units could be attacked.

I beat the campaign now. I don't think I had strong enough units in my first attempt at the tunnel, so I replayed the previous mission.

Updated for Wesnoth 1.2.
I tested it against 1.1.11, should be ready.
The smarter recruiting by the AI now made The High Plain very hard, so I had to rebalance the thing.

It seems that quite a few people are endeavoring to play this campaign without recruiting any fencers or poachers. Considering that the wood mage line has an astonishing lack of hitpoints, I cannot imagine the frame of mind that would suggest this endeavor.

I'm consistently getting a crash-to-desktop playing this campaign (first scenario, turn 11) using the latest version (downloaded today) on Wesnoth 1.1.11.

It would help if you posted a savefile for turn 10 or 11.
However, if it is crashing to desktop, the bug is probably not in the scenario.
I'll take a look at it anyway.

I did a little extra testing, and it appears to be in some way tied to what I do during my turn. If I just end my turn without doing anything, I don't get the crash, but if I play the turn out normally, then I get the CTD after the AI takes its turn. I can't remember getting any other CTDs while playing Wesnoth, so I'd be surprised if it isn't somehow tied to the scenario/campaign, but I can't really be sure.

In which case, the correct save is to create one at the end of your turn.

I'd intended for that save to allow you to poke around with the different possibilities as I'd been doing (me doing it doesn't accomplish a whole lot, since I've got no idea how to troubleshoot the thing), but I can get that for you too.
