I was pleasantly surprised by this little scenario. With no intro story (or very little) and no bitmap etc I usually don’t expect much. Now admittedly Emperor has gone light on for story and has not paid a lot of attention to “filling in” the map but the scenario (short) as it is hangs together nicely. Basically you are a bunch of villagers jailed for not paying taxes by the Duke (who then destroys your town). You decide to fight for the Duke and he arms you and sends you out on a couple of missions. The basic premise is good and quite well executed but spoiled a bit by the huge overbalanced army you get to complete the 2nd mission. I really got the impression the author knew all the right things to do but got a bit sick of it in the end and hurried the scenarios completion. Worth a play.. it wont take long either!
