1) Medium; 1.2.4 2) 1 - the enemy commander has limited resources, controls only about 1/3rd of the villages, and the AI isn't smart enough to maneouver his troops in this terrain. (Only a 1 because the gryphon isn't required - the level is a walk in the park if you avoid the mountain.) 3) Unclear -...

1) Medium; 1.2.4 2) 3 3) Clear 4) Clear but... 5) Messed up one time, got the elf lord killed. Apart from that, no problem surviving. Must remember not to hire elven fighters as fodder for this one - their melee is too good against the corpses, so they kill one, get attacked again & repeat. Finished...

1) Medium; 1.2.4, 1.3.6 2) 5 3) Okay 4) Okay 5) On the first attempt, the duellist & sidekick take back a lot of villages in your rear & make it hard to get Konrad back to camp if you want/need to recruit more fodder 6) 9 - probably the best scenario out of those so far for a presenting a both-sides...

1) Easy, Medium; 1.2.4 2) 3 3) Clear enough. 4) Okay 5) Triggering an ambush with the last unit you move is often painful. 6) 4 7) Chasing orcs all over the mountains, and lots of slow walking in clusters of troops over mountainous terrain to take villages, makes this level a bit slow - but I guess ...

1) Easy, medium on 1.2.4; medium on 1.3.6 2) 6 3) Clear 4) Good - having a choice of how to use the thieves was neat. 5) Careful positioning during the first night - the L2 orc units can kill several units during the night, so make sure they are fodder. Taking over the city on day 2 and finishing of...

1) Easy, medium on 1.2.4; medium on 1.3.6.
2) 3
3) Clear
4) Fine
5) Being careful not to expose units to more than one dark adept, and being careful around those walking corpses, which can gang up on a unit and get a kill if you aren't careful.
6) 8 - new enemies make things interesting.
7) None.

1) Easy, medium; 1.2.4 2) 3 3) Clear 4) Excellent 5) None. 6) 10 - excellent parallel land and sea battle. 7) The small starting castle I guess is to offset the huge # of mermem that you get for free; but only 2 spaces is a bit frustrating. Also the corner you start in is right in the corner of the ...

1) Easy, medium; 1.2.4 2) I played to kill the orc boss, so I don't know how hard it would have been to sit it out - not that hard I guess. At medium, coming in with 170 gold, I just failed to kill the boss on turn 12. With a bit more gold it becomes comfortable - say 4 to kill the boss. 3) Clear, a...

(1) Easy, medium. (2) 2 - Quite easy, but maybe I got lucky choosing a good strategy at the outset. (3) Completely clear. (4) Fine. (5) Balancing the troops send west and south can be tricky, as you can't be sure how the AI will deploy. Apart from that, only tricky stage is defeating the first wave ...
