I've finally convinced my 5E group to run a 2E campaign. I'm currently setting up a sandbox for the Harrowdale region and it seemed like a great place to plop the Saltmarsh adventure series in the Realms.

Has anyone done this? Any ideas that would make it run better? I've also decided to stick Bruce Cordell's Shattered Circle nearby as well as a couple older Dungeon adventures, particularly Clarshh's Sepulcher and have the ruined and abandoned temple of Nergal be from a pre-Dalereckoning Untherian expedition that was searching for something to resurrect the dead deity, possibly the Infinity Stone in Shattered Circle.

Anyway, I'm open to ideas. I've mostly fleshed out the conversion but wanted to bounce the ideas around before we have session 1 Thursday.

It's probably way, way too late for this, but can I suggest the southern coast of the Aglarondan peninsula? That makes your Unther connection a tad more logical and "stone circles" are a feature of the Yuirwood. Pyorrhoea sounds like either an Imaskari wizard, one of the followers of Thayd who escaped Mulhorandi vengeance before the Orcgate Wars, or if you want someone more recent, a renegade Red Wizard of Thay. Anyway, good luck with the campaign.

Pyorrhoea sounds like an intestinal problem.

Yeah, if I ever get a chance to speak with Mr. Cordell, that would be the one question I would ask him.

Definitely not too late. I'm expecting session 1 on Thursday, 4/4. So, I've got a few days to rework things.

Well, since I've been given a direction by someone who did this stuff for a living, I think I'll go that route. I've been pretty consistent in running my campaigns in the Dales/Cormyr/Moonsea since basically the 1990s, so maybe it's time to branch out.

One thing I guess I forgot to add was the timeframe I typically run in which is the late 1360s of the 2E setting after the Time of Troubles. I guess I can finally brush the dust off my Spellbound box set that I've had for nearly 30 years and never used for anything other than reading through it when I bought it.
