A number of external utilities not included in the main Battle for Wesnoth release exist to ease the creation of scenarios, campaigns, and Wesnoth graphics. Most, but not all, are Perl scripts. Herein lie brief descriptions of each utility and relevant links. This page was started as a result of this thread.

A Perl script which takes a Wesnoth directory, parses the files in data/scenarios/, and produces a web page that you can use to see which scenarios lead to which other scenarios, including links to the scenario files.

Note that surprises (like in the Ford of Abez) are not displayed.
