Complete third-party adventures?


Product Discussion

Grand Lodge

I'm looking for some good third party adventures for Pathfinder. So far, the two that stick out are Way of the Wicked and Rappan Athuk. What are some of your favorites? Something that is more than just a few levels.


May I suggest the Cross of Fire Saga Adventure Path? I think two RPG Superstars writing for it might peek your interest.

If you are looking for a full adventure path, then Way of the Wicked is one of the better ones (though not for heroes)

If you are looking for smaller adventures or short linked adventures, then you might want to check out the reviews here. There may also be some full APs here that I'm not aware of:

Endzeitgeist's reviews.

Make sure to click on the "older Entries" button at the bottom for more.

I'll let others mention their favourites


I'd suggest Rise of the Drow. Level 7-18, with a prologue available that takes you from 1-6 and an epilogue that takes you from 18-20.

Also the quality of the book is awesome.


Rite Publishing Curse of the Golden Spear intro trilogy of modules for the Kaidan setting of Japanese horror (PFRPG), Part 1: The Gift, Part 2: Dim Spirit, Part 3: Dark Path for levels 5, 6 and 7.

Haiku of Horror: Autumn Moon Bath House is a haunted bath house/inn extended encounter/mini-adventure that fits well between The Gift and Dim Spirit.

Up from Darkness is a very dark one-shot that fits well between Dim Spirit and Dark Path, but is comprised of the opposition NPCs in Dark Path, not the PCs playing the trilogy.

Read the reviews, they are all highly rated in a very unique Asian horror setting unlike anything you or your players have played before. Think Oriental Adventures crossed with Ravenloft, only darker, with great attention for authentic Japanese culture, history and ghost story tradition.

I could have sworn there were like three threads with this in them, but I'll lay out the easy titles for you:

Kobold Press:
Tales of the Old Margreve (like 8 adventures from 1st to 11th in the deep dark woods)
Streets of Zobeck (7 adventures from 1st to 12th in the gritty fantasy noir city)
Journeys to the West (5 adventures from 1st to 10th across islands and ports)
Midgard Tales (13 adventures across Midgard from 1st to 15th)
Courts of the Shadow Fey (Faerie Court Adventure & Intrigue, levels 7-11)

Rite Publishing:
Breaking of Forstor Nagar (Large adventure for level 8)
Coliseum Morpheuon (Half adventure arc, half setting, for APL 14+ on the plane of Dreams)
As a kicker to it: Down the Rabbit Hole (5-room inception style dungeon for APL 15 in the Coliseum Morpheuon world)

There are 37 adventures for you, across the scale of levels and locales.

-Ben.

So umh ... do you mean complete Adventure Paths ? Otherwise it wouldn't make much sense as i don't know an 3pp that sell incomplete adventures.

As for 3PP APs, megadungeons, and mini-campaigns:

From Fire Mountain Games: The excellent evil AP Way of the Wicked. Or even the upcoming Throne of Night...

ENWorld Publishing's Zeitgeist AP, and War of the Burning Sky AP.

0One Games' Urban Road to Revolution AP, plus The Sinking Campaign Serial.

There's a psionic AP in the making by Dreamscarred Press...

LPJ Design currently has a Kickstarter going for an AP.

Adventure a Week's Rise of the Drow (Revisited) should count, also maybe their Snow White part 1 and 2. They have several small mini series of adventures too.

Necromancer Games: Slumbering Tsar, Rappan Athuk Revisited, Baracus, and more coming up.

Total Party Kill Games: The Reaping Stone + The Bleeding Hollow Deluxe Adventure

Liberty's Edge

For a good, mid-level aquatic adventure, may I suggest The Sunken Pyramid from Ragin Swan.

The adventure has received 8 out of 8 5-star reviews, including one from the Illustrious Endzeitgeist himself!


And there is always Purple Mountain.

Shadow Lodge

It was mentioned before, but TPK Games does have a pretty good array of adventures now for low to mid levels. I know there is at least one more (The Fen of the Five-Fold Maw) on it's way that will be a suitable follow-up to The Reaping Stone and The Bleeding Hollow at 7th-9th level.

Slumbering Tsar by Frog God Games has become my favorite 3PP adventure of all time.

Two of my adventures (The Clockwork Wonders of Brandlehill and Mysterious Peaks of Baranthar) are available in web format to check out on Adventureaweek.com (with bookmarked PDFs avaialable on the Paizo store!), and the third module (Bandit King Grogth Bloodfang) in the Grualroth's Rot adventure path is in development.

The third party material I am the most familiar with is the stuff from Frog God Games.

Rappan Athuk is fantastic and gives more than enough material to run a campaign from level 1-20. It is almost exclusively a megadungeon so if you don't like that it's not the product for you. However if you do, it's an outstanding example, The price tag for the Pathfinder version is less than buying any Paizo AP and the page count of adventure material is more at around 650 as opposed to around 350.

The Slumbering Tsar Saga is a beast of a book at close to 950 pages and the price is a bit steep for a single book but you get content worth every penny. It is about the same cost as buying a full Paizo AP but there is about half again as much material so it's worth it. The AP runs levels 7-20 and looks to have a good mix of wilderness, urban, and dungeon. I just got my copy last week so I haven't been able to give it a detailed read through yet.

My experience with Four Dollar Dungeon's materials has been nothing short of stellar.

I'm also in the middle of writing a review for Marc Radle's "Shadows of the Dusk Queen", and so far it's amazing.

The "Way of the Wicked" AP from Fire Mountain Games is another big favorite of mine.

Thanks very much!

Shadows of the Dusk Queen was a blast to write, so it's unbelievably rewarding that it has received so many great reviews! :)

The Pathfinder Adventure Finder does include third-party materials if you're looking for something at a specific level.

I heartily recommend TPK Games' The Reaping Stone. I ran a somewhat-modified version of that as the basis of my "Champions of Old Korvosa" campaign, into which I mixed several other adventures plus a fair amount of homebrew content. It got my PCs up to 7th level.

(I had planned to follow this with the sequel The Bleeding Hollow, but after a discussion with my players, they want to keep playing urban adventures in the city of Korvosa.)

Kobold Press' Streets of Zobeck and Zobeck Tales are both collections of excellent short adventures set in the city of Zobeck, which is part of Kobold Press' Midgard Campaign Setting. I'm adapting many of them to run in my Korvosa campaign.

If you're looking for some creepy, dark, fairy tale adventures, then I'd recommend Tales of Old Margrave by Kobold Press.

And, if you're looking to run an Adventure Path length campaign to bring down the Demon Lord Orcus, then I'd have to recommend Frog God Games' Slumbering Tsar Saga.

Legendary Games is producing its Legendary Planet Adventure Path, in cooperation with a few other small gaming companies. I haven't backed the Kickstarter (because money), but it looks very promising.


Coming soon from Louis Porter Jr. Design​ for Pathfinder Roleplaying Game​... Chronicle of the Gatekeepers Campaign Serial! Enjoy!

We just released our fifth adventure:

To Claw the Surface, 1 1st-3rd level adventure.

As well as the aforementioned Slumbering Tsar and Rappan Athuk, Frog God also have Razor Coast and Sword of Air, both of which are very long and full campaigns.

... And, it's once again available here thru Paizo (it was sold out, but a second printing recently arrived in the Paizo warehouse! :)

It's not exactly an adventure book, but Kobold Press' "Southlands: Adventures Beneath the Pitiless Sun" is one of the most amazing campaign settings I've ever seen, 3pp or otherwise, and has a ton of cool adventure hooks (as well as playable races, archetypes, spells, monsters, and more).

I just picked up a hardcover copy and it's absolutely amazing. The art is all consistent and excellent, the fluff is super cool, and there's a Summoner archetype that gets a genie in a lamp to go with the Arabian theme.


The Northlands Saga by Frog God Games will provide a full AP, Viking saga style.


I can't believe I forgot to list The Grande Temple of Jing by Hammerdog Games. It a kickstartered super-dungeon currently nearing completion.

For those who missed the KS you can pre order at hammerdog.com.


Last year's AaWBlog Adventure Path takes the PCs from the wastes of the Disputed Territories to Steamtown in Pradjna, then Nyamo in the magic technocracy of Timaeus, then the psionic plane of Uklonjen, then the 2-D Lands of Ludolog (so cool) before finally returning to a further flung region of the Disputed Territories to wage war with four armies of undead.
I'd start here and work forward chronologically. All told it should take a party from levels 4-5 up through 11-12.

There's an AaWBlog Adventure Path for this year as well but we won't be done until November. :)

Note that the AaWBlog is free and has a format: Monday—magic item, Tuesday—trap, Wednesday—haunt/cursed item, Thursday—story locale (sometimes GM article), Friday—plot/fiction, Saturday—sidequest, Sunday—monster.
