For a long time CSIO was the centerpiece of my sandbox (custom world) before the focus shifted to Stonehell. In fact, I ran two separate campaigns set entirely within the city's walls. No one touched it for about 5 years and then at GenCon 2016 a high level group imprisoned the entire city in a crystal ball. News of the CSIO's disappearance has crossed the ocean to my regular Stonehell group and they have expressed some interest in investigating. They got a ship last session, so it is possible I will be back again soon.
I generally use the Necromancer games book. I honestly find a lot of JG's stuff physically hard to read.
I actually have some ideas for adventures in the city while it is trapped in the crystal ball that I would like to try.

I have an AD&D campaign set in the Wilderlands that started in November of 2006. Other than a 6-month break last summer, I've DMed this campaign the whole time, playing on average 22-23 sessions a year (that's every other weekend, more or less, excluding holidays and convention weekends).
We're on the third party of PCs, which began in Tarantis, as the first two groups of PCs have reached the mid- to upper-teen levels (levels 13-17) and I needed a break from DMing high level D&D. The first two groups started in CSIO, but 'toured' much of the Wilderlands proper, from Valon to Tula, and from the Great Desert to the Glow Worm Steppes.
Many PCs have come and gone over the 11 years. I'd have to say this has been some of the most enjoyable gaming I've ever been involved in, either as a player or as a DM.
I think that I'll be able to get a new campaign going in a couple of weeks! If the players don't choose for me to restart one of my old campaigns (one near Tegel, the other in the Desert Lands), I think I'll work up some adventures near Warwick.
