Got curious and looked into Velensk's replay and it crashed my game, so I add my own replay for scenario 3. Imo the key is to push hard early to take the village with a sufficient amount of cheap recruits incl. L0, it will deny opponent income, grant you healing and better defence. (I only recalled a single unit, an obedient, intelligent fledgeling earmarked as future Methusalem.) A few turns in there will be a moment when you have more units than the opponent (while the opponent is both distracted and not yet finished with recruiting and you are already done thanks to your larger keep) this is your opportunity. I tried to play this defensively as well, but I was roundly defeated. Good use of leadership and experience management (intelligent bloodborns only need 14 xp for level up and heal) helps.

I used to manage Valemoi scenario just fine, but I have serious trouble now (hard, 250 = minimum gold, find it hard to arrive with more). (Valemoi recruits almost exclusively Gargoyles, probably the worst recruit choice available to him.)

Hi, love this campaign. However can't play it on 1.13.6. Always get this error:


The following add-on had errors and could not be loaded:
C:\<folder>\Wesnoth1.13/data/add-ons/Kromire/_main.cfg

Please report this to the author or maintainer of this add-on.

Details:

Macro/file '~add-ons/Era_of_Myths/campaign.cfg' is missing
at ~add-ons\\Kromire\\_main.cfg:46


Anyone knows how to fix this?

My bad. Didn't realize the game hadn't warned me about needing Era of Myths. Thought I had it installed. Nevermind :D

Played on easy, and it was about right, though the turn limit is pretty high at first. Valemoi was tougher than the rest, except of course the last one which I didn't even bother with.

Valemoi: Need to update the objectives at one point.

Using the same image for bloodborn and malborn is confusing.

I never got the chance to investigate the blood apprentice advances. I think I levelled up one of each, once. They are just too fragile. Rarely do they get injured, they just get dead in one turn.

Valemoi was horrible at first, but after a few retries it suddenly was a relatively easy battle when I just sent my veterans to deal with the wolves and send ALL other units after the elementals
The other vampire lord was challenging as well, but when you get his villages and play defensive you will for sure

but the worst of all is the final battle, the first time I had played the campaign I gave up at this point, but this time I could focus solely on the celestials
Spoiler:
Well, first I held the enemy back at the mountains and then once their line crumbled I pushed through during the night and then basically ran away from the rest of their army with no opposition between my survivors and the prophet

Played on easy btw
here, have a replay of the final battle since I'm just glad that I somehow won in the end

Can't get past the first few turns of first scenario on Easy. Guards are too many and too strong. No time to use plague to create more units. Seems hopeless.

You have to avoid triggering the alarm. It's triggered by any of them attacking you. You attacking them is fine though.

Danke. I'll try that.

Sneaking north through the mountains worked but it is not possible to kill the leader before he calls in the hordes to overkill...

All right got past the dumb first scenario (the run it til you get the right rolls type, pah) and the other scenarios are fun and well made so far. Found a couple typos but only remember the last in Michbie it's your sword not you sword in the opening dialogue.

You should attack and ideally kill the enemy leader before he started to recruit. In order to do that you should not move under his vision prematurely. Your units have further vision than he. Use Ctrl+V to show how far he can move. Vision is one more hex further than movement. Carefully examine the terrain and find a way to move close enough to their leader, so he can't see you and you can attack him on the next turn.

By the way, this is difficult campaign. However, it is really well balanced. I.e. it is winnable, but it requires high skills.

Thanks, I got lucky and managed to kill him on turn after he recruited and the recruits vanished (whew). It was just one of those pointless repetitious scenarios where you start over and over looking for right tricks and dice rolls. Not my cup of tea at all. :)

As for the rest of the campaign I have no idea what number of scenarios there are or what general difficulty level it is supposed to be since it is the only campaign in the campaign menu lacking that info. I guess "difficult" would be above beginner and perhaps also intermediate? That would be a greater challenge for me than I have yet tried. Then again choosing the easy level at start might have helped.

There are poorly balanced UMC campaigns that rely on save-loading. But this campaign is not the case. It is possible to win it without save-loads. That's what I like about it - it is hard not because author mindlessly throw a huge amount enemy units on you. It is difficult because it requires a lot of thinking and experimenting. Anyway, the first scenario puzzle is too difficult probably. A hint on the easiest difficulty could help.

According to the first post in this topic it is 8 combat scenarios long and one dialogue only scenario.

Yes, it is harder than intermediate. Well, there is no way to clearly describe campaign difficulty.

You can change difficulty in a middle of a campaign. Click on a start of scenario save and select "change difficulty" checkbox in the bottom of the screen.

Yes, I was thinking that the 1st scen. sort of has a fixed difficulty since all the forces are preset and no gold balancing is in effect.

Hehe, it sounds like I didn't choose easy, but of course I did.
