This is a great all around and diverse scenario that includes puzzle, map and conquest elements in a balanced manner on a very nice map. The scenario starts with a battle that should be easy to survive. From there, you need to figure out how to continue since a frontal attack across the bridge will fail. After working through the few puzzle areas, you will find yourself stuck behind a maze of trees. Get through the maze to find some more villagers and then you should have enough resources to build up an army to wipe out the enemy base. I really could've won with a lot less starting units since I wasted them all in a futile frontal attack but still won the scenario anyway. I loved the use of rafts which are rarely seen and the instructions were nicely written and clear. The only thing I didn't like was the time-consuming solutions to most of the puzzles. Often I would walk away from the computer and come back ten minutes later to keep going, but that is a very minor complaint and overall, I loved this scenario. It was creative and diverse with good gameplay on a good map. Awesome job!

Just finished playing this campaign/scenario. I really enjoyed fulfilling the tasks of this game. Finding and gaining the conversions was in fact difficult at times. Attacking the Fortress proved worthy of any invading army. You have numerous ways to gain entry but at a major cost of manpower. Well-balanced, creative, with a beautiful map. Good story and clear instructions. Ranks right up there, Bravo!!
