If you like battles, this is the scenario for you. I found them a bit much, but maybe that's just me. You stomp round the underground fighting nearly every turn. At Hard I had no trouble at any point with this one. I took Puppetmaster but forgot to use it - instead, I simply used Markal to revive any losses in every battle (be careful not to end the battle till he's had time to do this for most or all of your early losses). At the end, as you emerge from a two-way monolith and head for the underground cavern, titans spring up ahead and behind you. You can easily take the ones in front, the ones behind are more numerous and I skipped them (forgetting I'd not reached the level cap - oh well).
In an earlier scenario I took the skill of judging how neutrals will react (join, fight, flee) - very useful.

Puppet Master is awesome on this map. Very quickly your army will be big enough that neutrals come at you in only 1-3 stacks. If there's only 1 stack, Puppetmaster it and you are guaranteed to win with no losses.
Especially since the 1.5 patch and the Dark Magic Pool, what this scenario could have used was a hill fort and somewhere to stash some of your undead stacks.
Also, the final boss could have been tailored to your army, like Haven Mission 3, where the boss that spawned after you take out all inferno stacks was based on your army power.
Overall, I felt this was a wasted opportunity of a map. It was essentially linear because of the border guards and teleporters, and there wasn't much novelty in being "inside" the Ring of the Unrepentant when it looks just like any other underground in the game. I would have preferred maybe a map that had you race to intercept Freya and thus "capture" her as a prelude to the final scenario in the Necromancer campaign.

Just a tip: This map is easier on heroic than easy/normal. The joining armies will be bigger and not any academic unit(expect rakshasas) will be larger. not even cyrus' army.
