Re: The Price of Peace → To Slay an Immortal

Here I am 6 years later trying the strategy I suggested. Worked great. Once Solymyr had the underground town secure and built up I blocked the entrance to my underground town and used Town Gate to get him to the surface. I put him with Emilia and Kodge and let them do all the heavy lifting. This arm...

Re: The Price of Peace → An Unusual Betrayal

Champion difficulty Aaaargh!! :( :| Month 5 Week 3 Day 1. I've cleared the whole map Except for Blue. I have to fight a difficult stack of Genies and when I do I find Landrew's body, he apparently died trying to clear this same stack. I went ahead and eliminated Blue but the game didn't finish. I sa...

Re: The Price of Peace → At the Crossroads

Champion. Here I am again 5 years later. I don't remember this being this hard! I spent a month and a half slipping around looking for battles I could handle with low casualties. About that time I got enough Genies to make a difference. Then my army was Emilia, all the halflings and magi I could aff...

Re: The True Blade → The Trials

When it came time to challenge the guardians of the Sword of the Gods I won on the first try. Mass Slow, Teleport, Mass Precision,...

Re: Tribes of the East → Flying to the Rescue → Summoning the Dragons

Hard 3.0 This is my third (or fourth) time to play this scenario so I tried to avoid using the walkthrough much. This led to a pretty serious misstep! When I hit the surface I missed the early opportunity to recall my city. I also didn't look for the tear since I wanted it in that city so I had almo...

Re: Tribes of the East → Flying to the Rescue → Tearing the Veil

Hard 3.0 Reading the old posts (even my own) had me worried about the last battle for Zehir. Not so. At that point Zehir was Level 28 with his ultimate skill. He also had expert leadership with 3 feats and an open skill slot. I sent him in with 185 obs. gargoyles. He lost about 30 of them. I used Du...

Re: Tribes of the East → Flying to the Rescue → Dark Ways and Deeds

Hard 3.0 I have played this campaign 3 times and never realized that Zehir could flee and come back (as long as he controls his magic city). I completely eliminated any challenge once I tried the trick with 6 stalkers and a Phoenix. I did have some tense moments early on. I took Town B and went expl...

Re: Tribes of the East → To Honor our Fathers → Hunting the Hunter

3.0 Hard Orange got stuck in his last city because of the caravans piling up. Probably would make a more interesting scenario if you cleared those out for him. I didn't understand that the mission wasn't over when I took out Orange. I might have made a different decision about when to visit the Tree...

Re: Tribes of the East → To Honor our Fathers → Collecting Bones

Hard 3.0 Things worked out poorly for me. I only reached Level 10, missed about half of the stat plus up sites but I got the necklace and some useful skills. The biggest problem was that my rival never hit a skull total between 1000 and 1150. He went from under 1000 to 1162 so bribing the goblins wa...

Re: Hammers of Fate → Ylaya's Quest → The Meeting

Hired another hero to run errands and pick up stuff. There was a Sack of Gold available when I built the Artifact Merchant so I ...

Re: Wulfstan's Defiance - The Brothers

Rolf got killed by a neutral stack! Duncan came in at Level 27 with maybe 70.000 xp toward 28. If I ever earned experience for him he stayed at 27 but lost the points earned toward 28. So I never allowed him to earn experience and he was able to reach 28 in the last scenario which he could not have ...

I would have preferred Implosion and Meteor Shower and he didn't get Circle of Winter or Mass Haste. And with Spe...

Re: Hammers of Fate → Freyda's Dilemma → Choices

Hard 2.1 I could do better. Freyda made level 29 and Duncan level 27. I waited a bit too long to turn the main army over to Duncan. The very last battle is worth about 23,000 XP and must be fought by Freyda so once she gets within that range let Duncan do all the heavy lifting. I let Freyda take out...

Re: Hammers of Fate → Freyda's Dilemma → Negotiations

I barely hit the level cap. I had to backtrack and fight (56) Phoenix to pick up 30,000 XP after I had already beat the Fire Dragons. Seems I forfeited about 60,000 gp when I entered the Dwarven Territory. I collected another 11,000 but only needed 5,000 of it. So, mostly XP from chests and don't pa...

I took Tanis this time and she had my best army and was my best hero for some time. There were almost no ways to gain additional troops for her army, so be...
