Most of Return of the Witch Lord is relatively easy, especially if heroes are stocked up on Healing potions. I think allowing the heroes to pass through the Death Mist on their turn without taking damage would make The Silent Passages much too easy.
Although playtesting through this quest with mercenaries, that would almost definitely result in casualties on their part. But for the 4 main heroes, asides from the Forbidden Caverns, the quests don't seem tough enough.

That's being a stickler for the rules, if you ask me, though. It's not in line with what the designer of that monster had in mind, if you read between the lines.

If the designer had something else in mind, they wouldn't have specifically stated "on zargon's turn"
You can play it how you want, but I think more interpretation is being done than is needed here.

Yes, you're right. It's been a looooong time since I played this. Damage only done on Zargon's turn, so veil of mist is irrelevant.

I try to find ways to make Return of the Witch Lord more difficult for the heroes. Not to an insane degree, but this quest pack is one of the easier ones, considering skeletons and Zombies don't do much damage.
Personally, I'd mark damage to the heroes any time they cross Death Mist as well. Maybe I'd give them a pass with Veil of Mist.
In like manner I raise the stats of all monsters in the Forgotten Legion.
And I also let Kassandra and/or Skulmar stand with the Witch Lord in his Court on Quest 10 (given that they escaped their respective quests).

I like that idea--if they escape, they get to come back!

Thanks, I also give Skulmar the Necromancer spells from WoM. There are very few bosses who use spells in RorWL, so if Skulmar uses Necromancer spells, they're still less effective then what the Witch Lord uses.
