In this scenario you control the inhabitants of a greek island in the Aegean Sea that have rebelled against the Ottoman empire. The Turks are raiding your island in order to suppress your rebellion as they did in other cases. Your goal is first to repel their attacks and then to liberate the island where their base is located. The rest of your objectives can be found in the scenario. Since you cannot create any units on your own, you are advised to use tactics and repair a lot.
This is my first scenario so any comment or advice would be appreciated.
Did you ever playtest this scenario yourself? The fact that your troops are limited is a major disadvantage. Just because you knock out two fixed guns doesn't give you enough reinforcements to overcome the enemy's many ships and enemy units.

The main problem was that I destroyed or captured all fixed cannons, meeting the objective, certainly. But it didn't grant me success for that objective. Perhaps the cannons can only be destroyed to beat it. But if so, that makes it very tough because your firepower from ships and grand cannons is very hard to renew. Your ships can take out two fixed cannons, but after that it becomes more difficult. You have to build up your boats and that is slow.
The other problem is that you have an objective of killing all enemy buildings on the mainland. I did that except for the cannons, but it doesn't grant me success on that either. Perhaps I need to destroy the cannons?
The balance is hard, but doable if the author would fix the problem above.
Map Design: 2
Very pretty and worth looking at. Very creative. But the problem is the issue above.
The story is great, but the instructions need to explain how to get the buildings objective better.
Playtest Playtest Playtest.

OK, I beat it. You have to destroy the cannons, you cant just capture them, which would make things easy.

It has been 4 years since this scenario was posted so my comments don't mean much. Regardless, I think the balance is completely out of wack. You can't build anything. It is an insane unbeatable scenario IMHO. Being this crazy hard makes the replay score zero.
