LotR From Boromir's Death to the Encounter with Theoden

Author File Description

File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Style: Mix
Number of scenarios: 2
These are my first two scenarios. So please don't expect too much out of it!

Yet I tried my best to recall and rewrite the story the Lord of the Ring, from the point when Boromir dies to when Gandalf saves Seoden from Grima and Saruman's influence.

I might have a lot of grammatical/spelling errors..(for english is my second lang.) If you find any, just comment on me or send me an e-mail please.

Introduction:
This scenario is about telling the story of the fellowship after it left the Mines of Moria and Lothlorien, the moment where it is just about to break. It begins with Boromir's betrayal and ends with Gandalf's encounter with king Théoden of Rohan. In this scenario, you get to play different characters on the "good side" and to fight battles that must be done.

Playability: 3
These two scenarios in the campaign were enjoyable to play, and that even though I have already seen the film and read the book. The scenario contains both a good story and some challenging fights. So overall, I give this scenario a 3 because I found it quite entertaining to play.

Balance: 4
This scenario tells the story with a good challenging game balance; it took me about 5 or 6 save and load to finish it. It was neither too hard nor too easy.

Creativity: 3
The scenario contains different sets of scenes where one gets to play characters like Aragorn, Frodo, Gimli and Legolas. I think this way of changing scenes and characters is a good idea; this way one gets to view the story from different character views. What I did not like was the Gandalf appearance as a monk riding a donkey; not to fancy in my eyes. Neither did I think that Legolas should be an archer, they look so female; use a Longbowman instead.

Map Design: 3
I think u have used the map editor material quite okay. I liked the map design. It had not much detail, but still was okay. What I liked most is probably the burnt Orc stack, well done.

Story/Instructions: 4
This scenario captures the story well and has good instructions that help the players to know what to do. What I think could have been better is if you had tried to use more lines from the book. That way one gets Tolkien's words instead of paraphrases of it.

Additional Comments:
What lacks in this scenario is some creativity like changes of unit portraits. I think you should use some background music and sound effect that would really make this scenario great!
At last, I give this scenario a 3.4 in rating. Is has some good ingredients, but can be improved more. Despite it, I enjoyed playing this.

/Keep up the good work
