I was looking forward to her getting a ranged attack. Instead, game acted like she had it while Konrad actually did.
Yes, that's a bug in 1.13.6 which has since been fixed.

If you want, I can hotfix your savefile (from either before you take the sceptre, or after if you don't mind missing the not-so-terribly-different dialogue) so that Li'sar gets it.

Not necessary, I appreciate the quick reply and am just glad it's resolved going forward.
Tell me again, where are we going, and why are we in a handbasket?

Hello, I noticed a minor syntax error in the description of "Battle Princess in the encyclopedia. I levelled up Li'sar during The sceptre of fire so I thought to mention it here, I am fairly sure though that this is not the right thread to post it. :( I just hope someone that can change it sees it anyway.

The problem? The second sentence of her description says: "Now battle-hardened and strong of will, she can now aid those around her in the art of combat." I believe one of the two "now's" has to go, it's an excess. That's all, have fun everyone! :D

I am playing Sceptre of Fire right now, and when I accidentally let Konrad die and tried to restart from the scenario start, I got an error message. I closed it too quickly and only remember something about a lua error during map generation; a few seconds later, I was taken to the credits. When I checked, HttT is marked as completed in my campaign list now.

I'm running the current Steam version.

It's going to be fixed in the next release, but in the meantime, you can just keep restarting the scenario, as there's an exact 50% chance of the error manifesting each time.

Yep, worked out fine on the try right after that. Just thought I'd mention it. :)

I'm guessing the 50% probability error looks like this.
Error
Map generator error: Error when running lua_map_generator create_map.
The generator was: Lua Cave Generator
Lua Error:
When executing, Lua runtime error: lua/mapgen_helper.lua:93:assertion failed!
stack traceback:
C: in function '.assert'
lua/mapgen_helper.lua:93: in function <lua/mapgen_helper.lua:79>
C: in function '.tostring'
lua/came_map_generator.lua:163: in function <lua/cave_map_generator.lua:8>

Cant give a simple number here. I think its easy if played properly. But this was my ~third (and much different/bigger) cave scenario in a long time and I still made pretty much the same stupid mistakes as before. So I ended up having troubles. If I were to play it again (especially now knowing the layout etc) I think it would be very easy.

Technically ok. But I expected additional difficulties due to "creative scripting" (which I dont like - see my comments on other scenarios) so I didnt trust those "clear" objectives. Which effectively made them not so clear in the context of other scenarios.

Dealing with my own gameplay mistakes. All my difficulties came from me not going straight for the sceptre but instead to the sides with inadequate forces. (Not trying to say going to the sides is bad.)

I didnt have much fun but if I were to replay it it would be one of the more fun (8 maybe) ones I think.

I dont think it needs changes. Maybe there are too many earthquakes. Are these actually doing anything?
