I couldn't agree more! My group is most of the way through (we're 18th level) and I'm getting so sick of how railroaded this AP is. The first half was pretty fun, but from the end of the arena on, it's just been awful. Tyranny of Dragons allows for more player agency than Age of Worms. I can't understand why so many people regard it so highly.Ugh. And Age of Worms was pretty horrid
By the way, when I first joined this group several years ago, they were most of the way through a 4e Eberron conversion of the Savage Tide AP. I missed most of the adventures that actually took place in Eberron (sort of - the DM seemed to be using the standard 3e multiverse rather than either the 4e cosmos or the Eberron one), as my PC only came in after they'd already moved into the outer planes. The fight against Demogorgon was pretty epic - and we had to contend with Vol.
