Hi again DukeSwampy,

Thanks for your feedback.

If you wanted to keep the content hidden, a private message might have been easier?

My replies are inside your spoilers and are in italics :)
Just a few general thoughts - the campaign overall is intended to be moderately easy.
(Though not everyone found it easy).

What difficulty did you play on?

Hi, great campaing, thank you for the amazing job.
But I'm stuck with "the caveguard" scenario. I play normal and it's the hardest so far. After countless tries to have enough turns left for the final rush in the north west labyrinth, I can't find more than 2 of the four keys. I'm pretty sure I've been on every hex of the map at one time or another And I've not found any one outside the labyrinth.
Any hint would be greatly appreciated... thanks

Thanks for your kind feedback - much appreciated!

Not that it helps here, but I am slooowly, as a background task, trying to compile a full list of spoilers (and there are a lot).
I've also got a new but untested version with lots of changes (but few gameplay changes, mostly the changes are to do with future-proofing and bug fixing). I have tweaked the Caveguard in this new version as I feel it can easily become log-jammed, which (IMHO) isn't fun when the turns are limited.

However - though it won't help with the keys - if people want to try out this untested version I'm happy to publish it... it should be OK as I've not made (IIRC) any major gameplay changes (besides Caveguard) but as I say, it ain't tested. Unfortunately I've been really busy (with, amongst other stuff, my next UMC...) so haven't recently spent much quality time with AfterEI.

I'll send you a pm with further details re. Caveguard!

Cheers,

I too cannot find keys 2 and 4 in "The Caveguard"
I mean, I could end the scenario easily, but I like to explore and would like to get the treasure ;)
eh, what comes here again?

Hello!

TL;DR - Campaign good, last scenario not so.

I now finished the campaign, and have a few things to say:

a) very cool campaign, fun to play and interesting (though on the longer side)

b) last scenario is meh. Not fun at all and ruined my experience with this campaign.
Spoiler:
Otherwise, cool campaign, well done!
