5E Ghost of saltmarsh, share your lessons learned/best practices

Sacrosanct

Legend
As the title says. For those who have run it already, any things I need to keep a sharp eye out for? Inconsistencies in the adventure? Or are there best practices you've used to help run it smoothly?

You might find a few tips on the "Enhancing" thread, though it's pretty short at the moment:

I've been meaning to post in there. I haven't run it but I have some ideas I've been working on for a possible campaign. I really like Saltmarsh as a home base. There is so much you can add to it.

While the lizardfolk-sahuagin conflict is interesting, Danger at Dunwater and Final Enemy really miss the mark as "modules". If you need fully stocked lairs, something has gone horribly wrong.

It requires a lot of extra DM work, as like TftYP, it's not a plug and play Adventure Path. Another issue is the strange variation on wealth for the adventure levels. For example, there's a suit of Plate armor if the party is willing to dispose of the Rot Grub infested corpse within. Since it belongs to the Knights of the Watch, I instead offered them a reward if they returned it (otherwise they'll run into trouble for wearing it, as they're not knights). Conversely, there are gold objects that have a value less than the weight of the gold itself.
