Kingmaker was my second favorite AP (after Jade Regent), but I will say that I ran it with the following emphasis:

It's true that Nyrissa is the "BBEG" but really, I think it's richer if the "villain" (or "foil" or whatever word you want to use) is the First World as a whole. There's already plenty of political intrigue, but you can tie the beginning and end of the AP together more tightly if you present a number of the challenges arising throughout the River Kingdoms as the product of fey influence. PF did a really good job of going back to traditional sources to make the fey darker and more purely otherworldly, as opposed to just "sylvan" or "mischievous," and I found a lot to mine there.
