    This is fantastic. It took me a few tries and my first two efforts were dismal, but eventually I got what I assume is the best ending with 18 gold-laden donkeys and 75 Spaniards saved (on hard difficulty).

    My advice to anyone who is struggling is to use the lieutenant who benefits cavalry if you want the easiest time and the lieutenant who benefits natives and gold generation if you're shooting for an especially good ending. You'll also find that you'll do quite a lot better once you know the lay of the land and where groups of Spaniards can be found. Don't rely on native units for anything except defending the palace, as they eat up gold and are nowhere near as effective in combat against the Mexicas as the Spaniards.

    I did notice one bug. Contrary to what is said in the hints, a couple of monks did show an interest in converting my Spaniard units. A hand cannoneer actually converted!

    The one real enhancement to the scenario that I can think of would be is if there were some randomisation of where the Spaniards to be rescued can be found.
