It occurs to me that many of the problems that crop up in Puffin's campaigns stem from him either not reading the module properly, or not preparing properly in other cases.

They fought through the entire temple full of enemies? This is why we had exhaustion as a naturally occuring status effect. Because sure, the barbarian with high strength and constitution, will be able to fight for a long time? But a mage that has next to nothing in both categories? Puh-lease

Awesome, but wow, what a crappy module! Missing that bit about RAILROADING the party was not your fault. Your "mistake" was letting the party make their own decisions (as they should) and not RAILROAD them into doing what the module says they should do. That's a *sin* in adventure design and a good example right there of why I avoid Adventurer's League like the plague. Seriously, AL sucks... a lot. So, yeah, you didn't "derail" the story. That's not story. It's RAILROADING of the most obscene kind.

I got to give you props, Puffin Forest. That campaign was dumb, thinking that submitting themselves as slaves was a good idea, and what do you do? Think of all that as “fluff” and skip that part, derailing the entire campaign. But look at it this way: you won! Moral of story: If you think what the book tells you is wrong, don’t do it.

Reminds me of a campaign I did once where the entire party was supposed to polymorph themselves into Orcs to infiltrate an orcish nation and they were like, "Nope!" So, they attempted to infiltrate this place as themselves. They rage quit the campaign because the sheer number of orcs they had to go through to get their objective completed was INSANE. I tried explaining that was why the adventure calls for them to polymorph into orcs. So, they can get to the objective and back again with a lot less fighting. I was running an actual adventure that I bought from the store. It stated they needed to polymorph. It wasn't suggested that they polymorph, they needed to polymorph to pull this off.

I had to do the same one as gm except my group decided themselves to just run in with no regret and just kill as many as they can.

They all died if you couldn’t tell

Level 1 isn't as much of a problem when you are playing a spellcaster and got things like shield and mage armor. Idk I think I would go storm sorcerer so even if they hit me they are taking lightning or thunder damage.

Here’s my plan on this module:
Find a yuan-ti patrol who work for Ras Nsi and request an audience with him, giving up any weapons or items if necessary to meet him. Then ask about the items he stole and try to work out a deal with him to recover said items; maybe promise to find the cure to his disease.

fane of the night serpent.. isn't a module dude...
It's part of a hardcover. You're missing the entirety of multiple chapters before that. The players if they actaully PLAYED up to that point know of the secret back entrance into the fane of the night serpent and very likely might have been there before. The only way through the front door is surrendering or being captured because the yuan ti within omu don't kill you. They capture you and take you.. to the fane of the night serpent. You didn't /miss/ anything, unless a player GOES THROUGH OMU, they CANNOT discover that there is a back entrance.

And that whole railroad into the PCs being slaves is why adventurers league is a massive pile of bullshit. My current character, was once a slave, and kills slavers on sight. And she would not even be willing to fake being a slave again.

Yeah, this happened to me all the time, I come up with a situation where combat isn't supposed to be a good option, the players charge in like a king and somehow still win. (Granted, one time I had to pull the "this guy who can just wipe the party easily at this point notices his superior strength and tries to capture the characters alive instead of just finishing them right that turn" bullshit to get them out.)

It really wasn't your fault dude, from the way you describe it that module was REALLY, REALLY BADLY WRITTEN. The players are just supposed to magically know that they have to pretend to be slaves? AND the module writer expected them to be totally cool with giving up all their gear?
I can appreciate feeling like you royally screwed up, especially for your first time DMing, but the module writer is a windowlicking moron.

Dungeon Master is specific to D&D. Game Master is the general term that you can use for any system. If you say DM when you're playing Trudvang Chronicles, people will know what you mean, but it isn't technically correct.

Daniel Clements

In D&D and other RPGs it is against the rules to just level player characters without them earning the XP to gain such levels. Part of it is because it undermines those who have levels through actually invested the time and gone through adventures (and i the old days of RPGs risked their character getting killed many, many times and have to re-roll a new character and start all over). It is even against the rules for a GM to allow a level 1 character into a adventure meant for level 5 adventures and "baby sit" (ie do anything differently in order to help them survive) in order for the level 1 character to be not outright killed by anything they might encounter.

The first two minutes of this video is pretty much what EVERY game master goes through when they try to run an adventure for the fist time. In the end it is not so much about knowing the rules as in trying to maintain some consistency with reality while doing a little bit of a song and dance for the players when needed (ie. being careful not to insta-death them in every situation they encounter).

This kind of situation is why I ran a variant of D&D that sadly would *never* see the light of day in AL back in the day ( https://gurps.wikia.com/wiki/GURPS_magic_in_D%26D ) - its a lot easier to "balance" things.
Ons a side note, what happened to the 1st level player?
