is Daggerford/Diamond Lake the home base of the campaign? It didn't seem like it was... but if it is, it seems like it should be a bit happier :) However, if I'm gonna make it happier I want it to be because of the actions of the PCs, so they can feel like something they did had a real effect on events. Hm...

Great literature is escapist, but it changes you, and you come back to your world with new eyes. D&D is the first game that's ever done that for me.

Its kind of the base for the first half of the campaign. Yes, Daggerford does seem a bit more corrupt in order to make it match Diamond Lake, but that's why in my set up I made it so at the "halfway" point the PCs could take a little bit of time off, figure out the Malaugrym involvement, and set things right, then move on with saving the world.

Its kind of like the "Scouring of the Shire" bit of LOTR, except in the middle instead of at the end of the story.

If you want to keep the campaign in the Moonsea region you could use Phlan as Diamond Lake

My "design principles" for the Age of Worms conversion were to illustrate how to adapt every single facet of the AP into the Realms. My thought was to go overboard in this respect, which then allows the DM to back off if they want. If I'd gone the other way, light conversions, I would have felt like I was leaving all the work to the DMs.

So, in your example, I wanted to show HOW Daggerford could have become corrupted. As to whether or not it should be for any particular campaign, that's left up to the DM. It certainly works just as well with the corruption as withouth.

instead of using Daggerford, why not one of those pirate hold-villages mention in Volo's Guide to the Sword Coast? or just put Diamond Lake along the coast in that unclaimed area between Daggerford and Waterdeep?

I have considered running AoW in FR, substituting an aspect of Moander for Kyuss, but then I love Moander and would use him/it in place of almost anything if I could.

If you fiddle about a bit with Moander's profile, he's already got rot (undead) and corruption (nasty wormy things) so it wouldn't be too much of a stretch IMO.

I thought so too but I was leaning more towards just having Kyuss as what he was before...mad wizard, soon-to-be-god, etc. probably be a Imaskari or Netherese wizard

but I was thinking more like of some sort of ancient magic user from Zakhara and his ancient jungle city would be placed in that archipelago of islands off the west coast, or maybe in the south near the Isle of Eephants...Near Kog or something

I haven't decided if I like the whole Jergal-spellweaver connection though

Has anybody compiled all of these web enhancement/conversion notes? For the first time Paizo's website is giving me a hard time.
