gargoyle and edhel:
At this point, I shouldn't get Hoard of the Dragon Queen right?
I wouldn't unless you think you'll definitely use at least parts of it. I bought it because I plan on running it, but I'm still unsure of whether I'll run the whole thing or just steal from it. Stealing bits and pieces from published adventures is a great tactic, but if don't use it all, it's a waste of money.
