Has anyone had a look at any of the Adventurer's League adventures?

Although their canonicity is of dubious merit - Mearls has said on Twitter that things are only canon once they're in a "published book", and Crawford has said things need to make it into a D&D product (although arguably AL falls under that header) - I'm interested nonetheless in how well the lore fits in, and if any new lore is of any quality.

I know the adventure writers get a "design guide", and that they're not usually allowed to kill major NPCs and raze cities, but I'm still a little dubious about splashing any cash on these titles due to concerns about quality.

Keen to hear the opinions of anyone who has actually bought and read some of these adventures.

Hm, I don't know too much about the Adventure League but if I remember correctly all the Living Forgotten Realms adventures produced for 4e were Canon. I don't see why AL would be much different? Is there a place or way to obtain the AL adventures?

4E Realms = Great Taste, Less Filling.

They're on the DMGuild. LFR adventures are no longer canon since when WotC stopped supporting the project, AFAIK.

AL adventures are set in the Moonsea regions, they've detailed Hillsfar, Mulmaster, Plan as bases of operations for adventures. Its really a hodgepodge of substandard writing, I prefer to stick to the published material for 3.5e.
