(1) Dominant (Difficult), Wesnoth 1.14.8 -- playing as a downloaded add-on--not sure if things changed when the campaign was brought into the mainline.
(2) 10 -- tried replaying it a half-dozen times, couldn't ever figure out anything that worked. Starting the scenario with base gold (it doesn't seem like there's any way you can start with more?), L2 Vank, L2 Galun, 1xFlare, 2xhalf leveled gliders, 1xburner.
(3) Dialog was clear.
(4) I tried a couple different approaches, and as noted, couldn't figure it out. You've got terrain disadvantage everywhere, and there aren't any good areas to hold a line. The island's small and orcs have enough gold to come at you from both the north and south, so there isn't any space to fall back if you feint forward during the day. You also can't really stall out a full day/night cycle after the first day, since there's nowhere to hold a line. Villages only giving +1 to your income also hurt a lot.
(5) 8. It was definitely interesting, but I couldn't figure it out--I haven't really ever played drakes, so maybe I'm just missing something here. Would love to see any replays.
(6) Again, would love to see any replays other people might have.

Thanks for the feedback. I gave it a shot on Dominant (Difficult) WoV v1.0.5 on BfW 1.14.9

I started with Galun & Vank at L2, with 0 extra xp for those 2, & no xp for anyone else. (for a bare minimum test case)
Almost had it on the last turn. See the replay. I made a few mistakes. If I had leveled a burner or two instead of them dying, or started the scenario with a flare or fire drake, or Galun having a little bit more xp, and/or recalling the quick burners I had from the first scenario, I would have made it.
