For the Checkmate
Alvelyns last breat event happens twice when she dies, followed by a <Lua> Repeated [endlevel] execution, ignoring
And I have no idea what she is trying to say when she dies.

EDIT:
Maybe give that baron a movement animation so you can see him walk to the chasm and jump? ^^
And the new loyal Outlaw you get at the end lacks a 'loyal' marker.

I have the same feeling about those huge maps. :doh:
But I am not the creator of this campaign, only the maintainer, and I am unsure about making big changes. What is better, keep the campaign original, the way it once was created by LemmonTea, or make improvements and change it? :hmm:
I'm still a bit new to this forum, but as a compromise solution I could suggest that you start a new upload, perhaps as a fork, in case LemonTea one day comes back. Or that you ask the mods/other powers that be for a ruling and clarification.
I don't think that LemonTea will ever come back. And uploading another instance of AVB is not a good idea in my opinion. I maintain my own campaign, and maintain this campaign, and that is work enough for me. But if someone has good improvement ideas for AVB, I am willing to add them.

I personally like (some) big maps, even if ‘And the river ran red’ effectively becomes a race to get to the cluster of mountain tiles in the centre of the map and thus the enemy cavalry is a helpless waste of resources while your trolls and other units just bash anybody who tries to climb up on foot. Still, the idea of the mermaids and other units surviving the battle without even appearing is a bit odd.
Any suggestions, or improvement ideas?

I think that hero death events triggering twice has happened to me in other scenarios and with other heroes too, but I don't have any saves to test unless I replay a scenario.

It's your call. I keep postponing starting my own campaign myself, because I know how much time these things consume.

Well… if you don't want to start tweaking the scenario you could simply introduce some dialogue:
‘Their cavalry will swamp us!’
‘But they cannot get into the mountains.’
‘We will be safe if we get there. Thus we'll only have to deal with their infantry.’
‘Good idea. Hurry up!’
(this, perhaps, coupled with only allowing three turns of recruitment, because otherwise I have about 20 units that are either trolls, Elvish Sharpshooters or Shydes/Sylphs entangling enemy units until time runs out)

Perhaps giving the AI more or better infantry as well (the AI leaders could give the order to ‘dismount!’ once Quoscelia reaches the mountain massif) would work.

There's more complicated solutions, but they might mean having to do extensive editing and a lot of testing.

And the River Ran Red
I decided to honor the scenario name and proved that you can hold the centre (taking some inevitable losses along the way because 'charge' :( ). (So please don't implement the changes mentioned above. xD)

Back to 'bug' reports:
Regarding the Wesnothian army, the units on 7,70 and 4,70 and 2,72 are facing east instead of west (so they are kinda looking to run away).

EDIT:
Second Crossing
Spoiler:
EDIT 2:
For Auld Lang Syne, Nature's Fury
You are shown a world map, but there is no Journey Tracker.

EDIT 3:
The guards of side 3 (undead) appear after the dialog and are missing their 'loyal' marker.

EDIT 4:
I lost without being able to do anything about it. (Unless I'd decide to rush to my allies help immediatly.)
The Ancient Wose was killed by Wraiths and a Nightgaunt at night at turn 6. 20% defense is bad, who knew. xD
The main problem is that all of the allied units moved out of the way of the enemies.

Are you sure about that?

OK, I made a change to the Woses AI, hope that stops that behaviour.
And I gave them a better defence on their own castle.

Yes, because it's up to the player how to win this scenario. (A better argument would be that making the elves say that they can't win...doesn't fit with their displayed belief of being superior no matter the odds.)

Ah, that's a good point, the elves had better remain in character.

So, a suggestion (or not!): to give the player the alternative and still remain true to the charaterisation of the protagonists, the trolls could suggest they play fight better in the mountains and then the Elves could be disparaging about that. If Quoscelia reaches the mountains the trolls or Alvelyn could remind her of her earlier comments and thus indirectly upbraid the player.

Nature's Fury
It would be cool if there was a lose condition for enemys reaching the grove like thing. It would fit the mood and explain the guardians.
All those loyal guard units have no 'loyal' marker.
It would be helpful if you scrolled to the ones Mal'Startin raises. (Speaking of the event when an allied leader dies.)
Even if you kill Mal'Startin with an Ancient Wose the first time, he will rise again.
He also changes his name after reviving, to Mal Startin.
spawling -> sprawling (probably?)

For Auld Lang Syne
The Ancient Wose has no traits but somehow he will have some next scenario. Miracles have their uses apparently.

Just a small thing, but the campaign awards (most times) the wrong laurel/wreath upon completion. (Apparently caused by using the old difficulties syntax.)
Details as to why and how to fix it can be found in issue #3983.

I found out just now that the Horse Clans actually live west from the River Weldyn, which contradicts with 'And the River Ran Red'.
