D&D 5E Survivor 5e Adventure Books - Yawning Portal lives to tell it's Tale!

OB1

Jedi Master
This thread is inspired by prior threads that we've done - and it's finally time to see which of the 5E Adventure Books is the most loved!

IMPORTANT NOTE- DOWNVOTES ARE WORTH 2 IN THIS THREAD.

Each Adventure Book starts with 20 points and you vote for one Adventure Book you like which gains 1 point and against one Adventure Book you dislike which loses 2 points. It is intentional that a negative vote is worth more than a positive vote - first, because it takes something extra to whittle these guys down to size. Second, because.

Upvotes are in green, downvotes are in red (unless you are on your phone, and are unable to). Copy and paste the previous poster’s vote and change the numbers. You may vote once per day in each category. This is an honor system, and we are all honorable gamers; please do not abuse it. If this means you vote once at night one day, and once the next morning - that's fine, but don't vote again until the following day.

This is purely a popularity contest and you do not have to explain an upvote or downvote, but feel free to - explanations are where the fun is! When downvotes reach 0 the Adventure Book is burned (FATALITY!). Finally, if an Adventure Book has one vote left, then you have to make the choice to use all of your downvotes to eliminate it; there is no vote splitting. In addition, you can't upvote and downvote the same Adventure Book (no "see" votes). And you have to use BOTH YOUR UPVOTE AND DOWNVOTE if you vote.

Three important points that you must read before voting-

1. This is a pure popularity contest, and is meant to be fun. You can cast your votes for whatever reason you want. Spite, irrational love/hate, huge creature envy, gameplay mechanics, strategic voting, and so on is perfectly acceptable. You can comment for the reasons for your vote, or not - up to you! But this is for enjoyment only.

2. This is a list of 5E Adventure Books as of March 2021.

3. As always, the list is the list. If you have a complaint about the list, please direct it to /dev/null.

Seems a little unfair to pit adventure collections (Candlekeep, Saltmarsh, Yawning Portal) against single-adventure campaigns?

While I will point you to point 3 in the OP :), I'm also curious, do you see this as unfair to the collections or to the single-adventure campaigns?

Ah. I admit my eyes blipped over that on their way to looking at the list. Carry on, then.

They just seem to me like different enough products that there's a bit of apples-vs-oranges going on.

Random thought about the adventure collections: sometime you could have an elimination for the best single adventure in an official 5E collection. There must be, what, 30 or more in the three collections released so far?
