So I actually ran Dragon Mountain. I'll probably sound crazy on this forum, but I ran my conversion of it in 4th edition. I know!

We had 13 sessions total, so it was a bit compressed, but it was basically a dungeon crawl where I cut out almost all the tedium and focused on this ebb and flow of conflict between the kobolds and the PCs. I really played up the uniqueness of each kobold clan with signature traps, different appearances, specialized tactics, the dungeon zone for that clan having a certain feel, etc.

It definitely helped that we took a lighter tone with it and the players were willing to embrace a slightly masochistic "let's see how bad the kobolds will screw us over if we try this crazy idea."

We had a paladin trapped in a bag of devouring and a sphere of annihilation eat through two levels of the mountain at one point. Good times. I think if we'd gone any longer this group of players would have had some dungeon/kobold fatigue, so the timing worked well for us.

What AD&D supplements do you recommend for a campaign that spans the "interior" of Faerūn: Cormyr, Sembia, Dragon Coast, Turmish, and maybe a bit more?

If we get as far as Ravens Bluff I know there is City of Ravens Bluff, and if we include The Pirate Isles there's Pirates of the Fallen Stars. I saw on DMs Guild that someone put together a 255-page pdf update of Cormyr, but not sure if it's worth $35.

The DMs Guild Cormyr product is pretty decent although not all of it was to my taste (big font!). Map is awesome and provides a decent update to the kingdom. It would serve okay as the basis for a campaign.

There's the Cormyr supplement along with Volo's Guide to Cormyr.

In this case, "supplement" may be something of a stretch, but I finally obtained the Kara-Tur Trail Map; if only the setting box set itself were easy to find .

That's next on my list; alas, I only have so many kidneys.

(I believe at least one was made for Dragonlance, too.)
