Orcish Incursion - deus ex machina?

Post by ChristTrekker »

The finale of Orcish Incursion seems forced, about three scenarios too short—a real deus ex machina ending. Anyone else think so?

If this has been discussed before, just point me in the right direction.

I agree, it seemed abrupt, with all the exposition crammed in to wrap it up fast.

I liked the campaign, honestly. For a newbie player like me it was just right.

An Oricsh Incursion is a little bit lacking as far as the story goes. I personally would have preferred a little more development of the story and perhaps an end-dialogue that comes after the Showdown to explain in more depth the actual collapse of the Orcish Army. It feels forced, but also it is about right for someone who just wants to play the game and doesn't want to read lots of text. It could be argued it fills a different role than the other campaigns. :)
