(1) Difficulty level & Version?
  • Corrupt (Challenging) 1.13.8
(2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10)
  • 4
(3) What did you think about the dialog and story?
  • I like the Elvish battle lore and the need to summon spirits stronger than goblins in order to create ghosts.
  • I also like that the Saurians and the Nagas were doing something with their lives - scavenging and trading metals.
  • And I always like when I gain new and interesting units, especially when those units are from a different faction.
(4) What were the major challenges you faced?
  • Finding advantageous unit placement to defend against both enemy factions. It's easy to get trapped between the two on poor defensive tiles.
(5) How fun do you think the scenario is? (1-10)
  • 8. It's a interesting map tactically, and I feel that it requires you to fight on two fronts.
(6) What suggestions do you have to make it more fun?
  • Maybe make it a little easier to reach the Naga leader's base.
  • Maybe include more or rearrange the placement of small fortress tiles and bridges. I only ever fought on the 3 fortress tiles just above the starting base. All the others ended up being decoration.

1) 1.14.1, difficult
2) 5
3) I found it amusing :) Also I was happy to see Ardonna again and I liked the ending and joining of new saurian.
4) To not get overrun by the enemies attacking from every side. It took me few restarts and reloads, but I finally I managed to come with strategy of quick rush with all my units into the area of saurian blue enemy and wiping him out before continuing to nagas (they are closer, so it lures to attack them, but it is a bad idea I found out).
5) 8

Diabolic, 1.14.3

(2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10)

7

(3) What did you think about the dialog and story?

It was interesting. I do think that because of this the distinction between male and female saurians became (ingame) official.

(4) What were the major challenges you faced?

Dealing with the nagas in such a terrain.

(5) How fun do you think the scenario is? (1-10)

(1) What difficulty level and version of Wesnoth have you played the scenario on?

1.14.5, Corrupt (Challenging), 340 gold

(2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10)

4

(3) What did you think about the dialog and story?

Good.

(4) What were the major challenges you faced?

The main challenge is surviving the initial attack from both sides. The first time I got here with much less gold (180?) and found it very difficult, with 340, it's fairly straight forward.

(5) How fun do you think the scenario is? (1-10)

6, the terrain makes for good tactical challenges.

(6) What suggestions do you have to make it more fun?

Good as it is.

Diabolic (Difficult) and Version 1.14.16

(3) What did you think about the dialog and story?

Very good. The saurian joining you was nice, would love for him to have more dialogue in later scenarios.

(4) What were the major challenges you faced?

Nothing major.

(5) How fun do you think the scenario is? (1-10)

(6) What suggestions do you have to make it more fun?

Given how important the saurian's healing becomes in later scenarios, I would make him a "lose him you lose" unit to ensure all players have him in later battles. It could be justified story-wise by saying that he has some important knowledge/component/magic capability which assists in beating death or something similar.
