Re: Scenario Review: DiD 10 - Alone at Last

(1) Level and version? Hard, 1.11.15, 300 starting gold (minimum is 200.) (2) Difficult? (1-10) 8 for a near total defeat of all the enemy. I did not try the "just run" strategy used by others above. (3) Objectives? Clear. (4) Dialog? I repeat my criticisms of my earlier review. (5) Challenges? In ...

Re: Scenario Review: DiD 9 - A Small Favor - Part III

(1) Level and version? Hard, 1.11.15. (2) Difficult? (1-10) Maybe a 5, because the big room is slightly dangerous and you might lose a unit. (3) Objectives? Clear. (4) Dialog? Fine. (5) Challenges? The mages in the big room. (6) Fun? (1-10) 3. (7) Changes? Volk's army appears from nowhere for no re...

Re: Scenario Review: DiD 8 - A Small Favor - Part II

(1) Level and version? Hard, 1.11.15. (2) Difficult? (1-10) I'll grudgingly give it a 7, because you can lose to the boss dude or due to time, but otherwise it is not hard. It is hard to avoid losing a single unit, however. (3) Objectives? Clear. (4) Dialog? Fine. (5) Challenges? Silver Mages and t...

Re: Scenario Review: DiD 7 - A Small Favor - Part I

(1) Level, version, gold? Hard, 1.11.15, 110 starting gold. (2) Difficult? (1-10) 3, once you understand the mechanics. (3) Objectives? Clear. (4) Dialog? Fine. Could change "recruit" to "recruit or recall" as recommended by a previous review. (5) Challenges? At first I tried triggering a guard and...

Re: Scenario Review: DiD 6 - Return to Parthyn

(1) Level, version, gold? Hard, 1.11.15, 328 starting gold. (2) Difficult? (1-10) 5 to run. (3) Objectives? Almost clear. I wasn't 100% sure that only my leader could trigger the signpost ending. (4) Dialog? Good. (5) Challenges? I decided to cross the river east of the ford, to let the orcs battle...

Re: Scenario Review: DiD 5 - Orc War

(1) Level, version, gold? Hard, 1.11.15, 409 starting gold. (2) Difficult? (1-10) 5 or 6. (3) Objectives? Clear. (4) Dialog? Okay, but the prologue says that the orcs cornered our hero and forced a fight, whereas the first words are spoken by Malin, who sounds like he is the one picking the fight. ...

(1) Level, version, gold? Hard, 1.11.15, 241 starting gold. (2) Difficult? (1-10) 6 or 7. (3) Objectives? If I only have the kill the leaders, then it's not real clear. (4) Dialog? Okay.

(1-10) 6, I didn't have as much fun as before. I think my starting gold was enough to make it not a challenge. (7) Changes? 1. When the Gh...

How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10)

In the campaign scenario reviews, usually people rate the difficulty of the scenario on a scale from 1 to 10. I sometimes see reviewers say something like, "It was a 2/10. I only had to save-reload twice to beat it." In my universe, if you had to save-reload, it wasn't a "2". You are free to rate it...

Re: Scenario Review: DiD 1 - Saving Parthyn

(1) Level, version? Hard, 1.11.15 (2) Difficult? (1-10) 4. (3) Objectives? Clear. (4) Dialog? Good, but I still have the same criticism as my previous review. (5) Challenges? Giving your leader some XP without getting him killed is the main challenge. (6) Fun? (1-10) 7. (7) Changes? Consider weaken...

Re: Scenario Review: DW 12 - Revenge

I recruited two Priestesses, because they didn't really cost me anything, but I'm sure I could have won without them, between my Diviners and being abl...

Re: Scenario Review: DW 10 - The Flaming Sword

(1) Level, version, and gold? Nightmare, 1.11.15, 120 starting gold. (2) Difficult? (1-10) 8 or 9. I don't know what flammstrudel is talking about. (3) Objectives? Clear. (4) Dialog? Excellent. The hint seems heavy-handed. Maybe just have them wonder if the Mage is trustworthy. (5) Challenges? Sinc...

I don't know if that's an intentional mistake, but proper grammar would be "She kills drakes." That might be why other revi...
