I do think the set-up for the Standalone--"read through the previous scenarios in the campaign and make all those decisions. Then you may start."--is a clunky, but probably necessary. And a good sign of how strong the narrative throughlines will be from encounter to encounter.

 

Agreed, especially since past the core set I'm probably going to be playing mostly standalone (can't see my family committing to an 8-game play session, and definitely don't want to wait for a whole campaign to release before I can play and re-play scenarios).

 

I'm thinking that I'll start my own document providing an independent setup description for each scenario so I don't have to re-read the whole campaign log each time.

I don't expect to typically play scenarios out of order, so it probably won't really be an issue either way.  However, it's good that they do provide some suggestions for those that DO want to play this way.

Why not start the campaign, play as far as you can and make a note of your deck, then re-play with a different deck and character, and when new scenarios are released, pick up where you left off?

I think it'll be fairly easy to pause and re-start campaign play between scenarios.

I will probably try running through a campaign with every single character and may also level them all up before playing a new scenario, so that I don't know the exact challenges in advance.
