I can't quite agree with you. I liked the fact that published BR Adventures
are little more then stories that the DM weaves the Players into. I always
completely rewrite any published Adventures I use to fit my PCs, and make
more palatable to me. I found that BR Adventures are the easiest to rewrite.
They give a framework that lets the DM create an interactive scenerio
around. Sword & Crown was a lot of fun when the story was reconstructed to
match my PCs. I know most people like to purchase an Adventure and use it
with as little work as possible(thats why they spent the money). But I can't
help liking the ones that are left "flexible" instead of trying to cover all
the bases, because a lot of time gets wasted on material I will never use.
Of course this is all IMHO.
