"Wake of the Watcher" was merely okay in my experience. I should note that I ran a PC in Carrion Craown; I did not DM it. I think that the reason I didn't overly enjoy it was that my experience playing through "Broken Moon" was bad. I still consider that a weak adventure and "Wake of the Watcher" didn't pick it up for me much. "Ashes at Dawn," on the other hand, brought me right back in. It turned out to be a great campaign despite the weak middle. For me, Carrion Crown is great because of vol.s 1, 2, 5 & 6 -- though 6 was not due to design but due to great hack-n-slash encounter after great hack-n-slash encounter and how it juxtaposed with "Ashes at Dawn's" (relative) lack of combat.
For the record, I'm glad Pett got "Trial of the Beast" instead of "Wake of the Watcher." (Not that that means anything to anyone but me, but, well...)
