View Full Version : 3PP in your 4eE campaigns

Anyone using third-party products in their campaigns? I have virtually every 4e product by Goodman Games and am thinking of running my players through Wraith Recon by Mongoose.

not really outside of Soldiers of Fortune.
I am not a big fan of the spellplague, so we mainly do 3E realms with 4E system, so maybe everything is 3rd party in a way except the system.

I like pre-spellplague as well.

I ste... "borrow" profusely from every single thing I find useful. I've used, and continue to use, ideas taken from the adventures in the Dungeon Crawl Classics line from Goodman Games. I've also used stuff published in their magazine Level Up. I also use Azagar's Book of Rituals, which is a fantastic source of inspiration.
I just got Soldiers of Fortune and there are a lot of good ideas there. I'm even ste... borrowing some ideas presented there for the Midgard Setting, though I'm using a different setting.

None whatsoever, because we all use various versions of the CB in my group for printed sheets. The one place I don't use WotC elements is my Half-Eladrin Paladin from a PbP game. He's got a homebrew race and a homebrew feat. This becomes workable because his sheet is maintained on Mythweavers, so it's easy to edit from the Eladrin version of him that exists in the CB. And the homebrew stuff he's using I came up with myself to suit specific needs I had that aren't going to come up a lot. (The feat's for Corellite divine chars to let them use Longswords as implements and give them proficiency. The race is meant to reflect the pairing of a human and an eladrin noble and produce something that actually feels fey unlike the normal half-elf, which I can't stand.)

Other than being completely biased, I use some 3PP in my games, but mostly what the players find or bring. When I ran 3E, I used a LOT of 3PP like Traps and Trechery I&II, Rappan Athok and Monsternomicon. Personal attachment aside, there are some good sources for new material, in some cases better than "core" products, that are very useful either on a large or small scale.

Not playing 4E at the moment. For 3E we used 3PP pretty heavily. Sword & Sorcery Studios was at the top of that list. The Realms were a lot more fun (to DM) with Scarred Lands monsters thrown in.

I am always looking for 3pp for my 4e games. The 3pp usually come up with unique and fun ways to add depth to the game. Sometimes they'll even cover topics WotC is afraid to.

I've seen very little of 3PP for 4E's system but I did purchase the Soldier's of Fortune but I haven't received it yet in the mail (is 8+ days normal for shipping?!) but I thought it looked great and I plan on doing a Large-scale battle with the PCs in attempting to retake Neverwinter from Orc/Undead/Fey forces that now inhabit large swaths of the desolate city.

BTW, just last week Loot (http://gamerati.com/loot/) had a Goodman Games bundle with a good majority of their 4e adventures for an incredible price. With shipping, I got 10 adventures for less than $4 each. The deal is gone now, but keep an eye out for any other deals.
