This seems to be a common problem when editing campaigns. If you used the pawn export function, this likely is causing crashing, but many things could be causing it.

One way to help reset the campaign is to export a vanilla copy of the campaign data from the NDF_Win and replace your modded copy. In my experience, this will reset all of the values except for text descriptions and unit compositions.

1. First, within the Modding Suite, look at the Settings and make sure you have your export path set correctly.
2. Open a vanilla NDF in the Modding Suite and filter the results by the name of the campaign, such as "narod" for Climb Mount Narodnaya.
3. Click on each item and export it using the Raw Data button at the top left.
4. Open your modded NDF in the Modding Suite and filter the results in the same way as before
5. Click on each item and replace it with the exported data, making sure to match the files correctly.

It won't reset everything in your campaign. I recently used this method to fix crashing for my Climb Mount Narodnaya. It was crashing whenever it was launched, unless another campaign had been started first. Then it would crash after a battle or on the AI's turn. I couldn't figure out the cause, so I resorted to resetting these files. It did not reset unit compositions and descriptions, but did reset things like unit costs, positions, and AI objectives.

I don't know of any other specific causes for crashing other than use of the pawn replacer function. Some campaigns are less stable than others, with Narodnaya being a more difficult one, so you may want to proceed cautiously.
