Curating Undermountain


I'm currently running Dungeon of the Mad Mage for DnD 5E. Its a good module and a great version of Undermountain. However, I find myself allowing my group to focus on the parts they want and ignore much of the rest. I appreciate 23 levels of dungeon and all of the material, but I'd rather pursue particular quests and storylines than have my group knock down every door and fight every monster.

This isn't a criticism of mega-dungeons, just where we are right now. I won't lie that it wasn't an easy decision moving away from whole swaths of the map for the group to pursue a mask, but everyone had fun and thats what I'm really going for as a DM.

Has anyone else made similar decisions or am I merely a heathen?
