    Yeah I was trying to be funny. And Im not sure theres been many (any?) positive reviews of that starter set.

    Sorry to hear you're not a fan, but a lot of others are - Curse of Strahd, which won the ENNIE for Best Adventure in 2016 (and Best Cover/Art, and runner-up for Best Product), was his project. Sure it was an adaptation of I6: Ravenloft, but drastically expanded I6 for 5E. Given his bibliography of content produced, including a majority of the Shackled City adventure path (also an ENNIE award winner), I'm looking forward to the Essentials Kit. I'm not sure what's soured you on his work, but it might be worth giving some of his other products a look.
    I believe he has his hand in pretty much every product so far? I think hes the one who likes to inject silliness into the products? My players bring enough of that without WotC adding more.

    I dunno, I think Im just burnt out on WotC adventures, they just dont work for me Im finding. Time to go it alone.

    I find I don't get much use out of the "Adventure Path" format (for which I blame Paizo). I prefer to use my own story arc for a campaign. What I do find useful are short adventures, dungeons and locations that I can drop into a campaign to save me doing all the work.

    #lifehack: you can do that by cannibalising the APs: Perkins has basically said he plans them out for such a purpose.

    This. You can pretty much cut and paste any bit from any of the 5e campaigns. Need a giant lair? Grab one from SKT. Need a castle in a swamp? Use Castle Naerytar from HotDQ. Need a wizard's tower in a city? Use Kolat Towers from W: DH. And so on.

    nice! Ive enjoyed your DMs Guild product too, top notch.

    Ive enjoyed the new storyline and product ties, few more things to add to my collection it seems.

    I was about to mention SKT myself, but I'll put in a nod to Dungeon of the Mad Mage instead - virtually every level could easily be removed individually and used as a stand-alone adventure. Druid grove? Dwarven ruin? Evil Hogwarts? Githyanki base? Cursed mansion? All those and more are available!
