Page 9 of the Overlord's book says:

Quote:
The scenarios are presented in order of difficulty, which is indicated on the right of the title banner by a number of crows.


Difficulty for who? The heroes or the Overlord?

i suspect that perhaps the proper word should be "complexity" rather than "difficulty," seeing as all of the scenarios are presumably balanced reasonably well for both teams.

:-?

Yes, I think it should be written "complexity" instead of difficulty.

It is not only that they integrate more additional rules, it is the fact that there are a lot of parameters to handle for players and that the best strategies may not be obvious.
For example, in the wrath of anu, if Conan plays like always and just slaughters all the guards, he will soon be outnumbered and cornered by his enemies.
But is also a tough challenge for the overlord because if he made a mistake by moving its units, he will leave an opening to Conan and he might escape or get to interrogate a priest easily.
