Hey Shadowm,

I played through most of IftU months ago and just finished the last few turns today, here is the feedback I noted, while playing through the campaign. I played on version 2.1.1, easy, on Wesnoth 1.14.

On a more general note, I can say that after playing through the campaign again for the first time in years, I can now get, why you do not think so highly of a lot of the story - it is in some parts a weaker rip-off of UtBS, especially in the
Spoiler:
All that said, I wouldn't be as critical as you sometimes sounded of your own work, because I think some flashes of greatness are already there - the world-building in the background and some things concerning character development are really well done. Also, Mal Keshar is simply a great joy to play with, I really like his humor and think you did a great job working with his character!

For the scenarios: some gameplay, some typos, some story stuff.

Some parts of the story will be easier to understand once you've played After the Storm.

About the elvish NPCs (mild spoilers for AtS and UtBS as well):
Also, I tend to see the “you must be this attentive to enter this ride” check as a good thing rather than a bad thing since this culls out at least half of the people who wouldn’t be able to stomach AtS — or what’s supposed to come next, for that matter.
