I've always been disappointed by both the original CT Secret of The Ancients and the Mongoose Secrets of The Ancients. I also have a tendency to fly off script whenever I get my hands on any published adventure module. The scripts I run are much more interesting, and don't rely on "And then robot assassins appear!" "And then a giant ship appears!" and so on.
I've always wondered how I could write up. I could condense it down to the following.

Grandfather's Infamous Monologue
Hi. You know The Ancients? I am the Ancients. The Droyne call me Grandfather. I know, I look like a human to you. Look, really long story short. I've lived for more than three hundred thousand years, hopping from body to body. I've been inside this human for eight hundred years. I know, she's got a weird accent. I love this town on Earth called Sheffield. Bear with us, because things are going to get a lot more complicated."
