Had two ice fairies a snow fairy and a Lady Blizzard. I didn't level up a bunch because i also had a bunch of other veterans, i had no idea i won't have humans after prestim. I also had no idea the last mission will be a dungeon crawl, there was no indication that I'm gonna be fighting undead (they weren't so much as alluded to before), and i didn't even realize Ice fairies had arcane damage until i actually used one to kill a skeleton (all the others had cold).

Hah, oh, yes, you have no humans after Prestim, of course… and it's always good policy to keep at least one heavy hitter with each of the 6 types of attack. Arcane/magical attacks are always useful IMO.

I had two ice fairies (lost one to a bunch of shadows), a dwarf lord and a rune master, a loyal elvish champion with the fire sword, an elvish marshal with holy water, and 4 heroes with magic attacks that are either arcane or fire. It would've been enough if i didn't get hit with an army (including a friggin bone dragon) that came out of nowhere, after i used up most of my turn, lost a bunch of dudes and was about to finish off the bad guy. And like i said, not a single recruitable unit that is suited to fighting them, except for the drakes - and they're lawful.

I've just checked my replay. I went in with two snow fairies and ice fairies, plus a snow druid and an ice sorceress.
And then recruited a regular shaman and upgraded her to sorceress within two turns (it takes a bit of luck to get your lads to leave a Lv. 2 skeleton almost dead). So that and the two vials of holy water left me with a total of 8 arcane attackers, overlapping with 6 impact/slow, plus a couple dwarves who could use hammer attacks. After that it's a matter of just turtling your way forward.

Hi, I'm playing Northern Forces at the moment and I've now met the Skeleton Steerer. I like the campaign and all I want to mention is that the advancement of this unit does not make much sense. Why would it lose it's ranged attack?

Huh. It does, and it's not even an alternate advancement. That does go against the principle that sazs everz unit must have at least one advancement that's a strict upgrade in every sapect.

'Retrieving Soradoc'
Some indication as to how much dmg a skeleton bomber does upon exploding would be nice. (Just like the indication in the next scenario.)

Well, I wouldn't say so. But if nobody objects, it is open for someone to take over.

On that note, I post here to notify the people here that I'd like to take over Fate of a Princess, and if nobody objects, then it would be an honor to update and maintain a beautifully made campaign. Yeah, I know. I enjoyed this campaign. Thanks for making this.

I've seen terrible tomato surprises in this game, but that last one was outright sadistic. As if fighting undead in a cave with barely enough leveled units that aren't drakes or saurians and ZERO recruits that can be used against them. If only there was some sort of indication that I'm going to need dozens of ice fairies in the final scenario, i would've leveled up more than just the two.
But no. The moment i hit the final boss i discover that i need to sit through another hour of this battle. I mean this was an awesome campaign, and i loved every minute of it, but that ending.
It fell apart for me a little earlier in the last scenario -- as soon as the revenants appeared. Two revenants can do more damage in one turn than my heroes have HP (max). Now, the AI doesn't ALWAYS hit for max damage, but it's not going to fail to do so enough turns in a row that I can make it to a keep.
