I had a pretty fun campaign rolling with Candlekeep Mysteries and a designed meta-plot, but half the players ended up too busy and the campaign fell apart right around Book of Cylinders (which was a bummer because it was going to be a pay-off to a running gag we had about how Candlekeep never runs out of crab meat)

I know it's not fashionable to speak highly of Wizards of the Coast right now, for any reason, ever, (and hey fair enough), but I'm gonna.

I really enjoyed the "Storm King's Thunder" adventure path. We played it back in 2017...or was it 2018?...and had a pretty good time. One of our players stepped up to be the DM for the first time ever, so it turned out to be a bit of an Introduction to Dungeon Mastery 101 for him and inspired him to begin work on his own D&D campaign setting.

And we've run a couple of adventures out of the "Tales of the Yawning Portal" whenever the opportunity arose. Those turned out to be a lot of fun also--we play on Roll20, and the marketplace purchase came with all of the maps and tokens and compendium stuff that we needed. We just dropped it into a new game, imported our characters from the Vault, and we were off to the races.

Inexcusable OGL revisions and dubious apologies aside, they write some fun adventures.

I really enjoyed reading Wild Beyond the Witchlight and would like to run it for one or both of my groups. Any advice?
I don't have an answer yet, but IMO, Wild Beyond the Witchlight wants to be a sandbox, without providing meaningful choices. [spoilers ahead]

Running it by the book, when you reach a domain you're pipelined in a road of three locations you can't really change the order, with some random encounters sprinkled in the inbetweens. Then you find one of the hags, deal with it through any means you want (it doesn't matter), and goes to the next domain. You do it thrice before heading to the palace.

What would I recommend? Ditch the advice the book gives of running everything in order, don't be afraid to provide information to the players, so they can travel the Feywild with objectives in mind, instead of being dragged from one encounter to another, and read some other fey books, so you have some foundation if/when choose to just wing it instead of following the book. Domains of Delight is a good source, and @Whizbang Dustyboots gave me some recommendations I didn't know (thank you Whizbang!)
I picked up several other fey books to flesh it out. Fey Encounters is full of one-page encounters that can be dropped in at will, for instance. I also like Cawood Publishing's Monsters of Feyland.

Domains of Delight should definitely have been a chapter of Witchlight, which I suspect it was originally. Bump it up by four dollars to pay for the extra page signatures, if necessary. Maybe they will, if they ever release a remastered version of it.

Last WotC adventure I ran was probably Red Hand of Doom, many years ago (unless I am forgetting something). I have run some TSR adventures more recently, the most recent of which was the Sea Devils trilogy.

Last WotC adventure I've played in was Out of the Abyss.

Not sure about the one before that - might even be the Forge of Fury (the 3.0 edition version, not long after it came out).

Never. I’ve never ran any published adventure. Closest I’ve come was using the essentials box as a resource kit to run games at the library for kids.

But I take stuff from adventures all the time to use in my game.

Currently running The Spelljammer adventure Light of Xaryxis for my regular group - about 70% through it. They are having a blast and we might continue with Spelljammer after.

Last one I DMed was Wild Beyond the Witchlight. I didn't think it was great. DnD is 85% rules for fighting and in making a mostly non-fighty adventure, all the way through it felt like we should be using a different ruleset to play the adventure - Call of Cthulhu or something! :lol:

Last WotC adventure I played was, I think, Descent into Avernus. The module had its problems, and I don't think it really sold the whole Mad Max in Hell fantasy all that well, but had a fun time fightin' devils and shootin' scumbags in the neck.

The last WoTC adventure I played in was Baldur's Gate: Descent Into Avernus. It took us a year and a half to complete. ;) We just started playing in Hoard of the Dragon Queen this month. Both of them on the Virtual Tabletop. I am currently playing as a Bugbear Ranger using the optional rules from Tasha's Cauldron of Everything. :)
