This is my very First Campaign and i hope you like it. It is about a Hero names Tom and once again hes completing quests for the kings, lords and masters of his country. Their biggest enemy are The Wild which start to attack the other cities to advance though their greate country.
There might be some bugs and mistakes so message me the mistakes and i will try to fix them right away. There is no music in the scenario so feel free to make Music On but still keep the Sound On.
I updated the file with a correct archive file. You uploaded a .rar-file within a .zip-file. Please use the correct method of just one .zip-file from now on.

Overall I'd say the scenario was fairly enjoyable. The lack of a storyline and absence of any detailed instructions did however have an influence on the fun I had playing this. Most of the time I was left wondering why Tom was supposed to carry out his tasks. Why would he be looking for a lost horse one moment and then fight some bandits the next?
As I gathered all possible followers the enemies fell down surprisingly fast. The heroes obtainable for the player are simply too powerful and ruin any possible balance in this scenario. That said, the final battle was somewhat challenging.
The scenario contains some excellent creative points on which I'm sure the author will be able to continue and improve. (Most notably the encounters with NPC's and scripted battlecries.)
Map Design: 3
The map design was fairly good to put it simply. Although quite basic (and perhaps in need of some improvement), it served its purpose. There were some minor bugs (most notably a message stating that the gate was locked, even though I could clearly see that it wasn't). I recommend checking out some of the higher-rated scenarios and campaigns in the Blacksmith for learning purposes.
Although not completely lacking in instructions, the scenario did make me wonder at certain points what I was supposed to do. The author did add some ingame instructions in the chatline, but these were often not clear and offered little help as to completing the scenario. Frankly, I was surprised that by beating the bandit leader I had already achieved the victory conditions.
Although far from perfect, I can see potential in this scenario. As always, I do recommend the author to start visiting the forums as there's a massive quantity of information just waiting for beginning designers.

I understand the problems... and it was kind of stupid to try make a good campaign at my first go only by playing other peoples campaigns. I had a very difficult time trying to display instructions
and removing instructions. By the way: Frank the Horse was only a side quest if you want a better sword, thats all. Next time, i will make it more clearer and will not finish it in only 2 days, i will take my time and try to perfect them. My role-model is Lord Basse as his campaigns are wonderful.
