Still figuring stuff out!
As a fan of psionic monsters and body horror critters, I'm excited to see the monsters coming out of this adventure! I like how some of the Spelljammer critters (the psurlons, braxat, and even the megapede) have psionic elements incorporated into their stat blocks, and I hope that this trend continues!

One thing in LMoP that was missing, a Neverwinter (NW) Gazeteer. I get it, wouldn't go into an intro adventure; but when my players went up to
they had to go through NW. It would have been nice to have a bit of info to at least improvise

Which 5e adventure/sourcebook built out NW further? Or is it across multiple books, like Storm King and Sword Coast AG?
