Wesnoth scenarios are the individual levels within the game. Or they can be advanced multiplayer maps, with extra characters and items and such. Each scenario contains two files. First is the map itself, this is described in BuildingMaps. The second is the config file. This configuration file is used to describe everything about the scenario. Both of the files are ascii and can be edited in any standard text editor (vi, notepad, etc.) If you decide to use a wordprocessor, please make sure you remember to Save As text.
Scenarios are written in the Wesnoth Markup Language.
