I’ve played 70 ingame days on beginner Ironman. Never encountered skeletons, vampires or ghosts. But I can reliably wipe the floor with bandits, goblins, wolves and small bands of orcs. Now I’m getting into the grindy part of the game – getting heavier armors, best weapons, looking for talented soldiers. So before I commit to this campaign, I’ll probably reroll for higher difficulty so it stays tense and dangerous.

My question really is; How likely it is to get wiped out on challenging difficulty without your own fault? Like unavoidable ambushes from powerful creatures, crazy autokilling crits etc.
