I'm brand new to DCC and planning on starting a campaign in April when I get the book from the Kickstarter. Looking at all the third party products out there, I'm wondering what are your top 10.

Not counting anything I wrote ('cause it's tacky to do so), I would recommend (in no particular order):

Alternate Occupations
Carnival of the DamnedCrawl! fanzine #1
Crawl! fanzine #2
Crawl! fanzine #11
Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad #2
Sunken City Omnibus
The Haunting of Larvik Island
The Treasure Vaults of Zadabad
The Wizardarium of Calabraxis

These were picked on the basis of utility to the average DCC campaign. And I might have different selections if you asked me tomorrow.

To be tacky, in no particular order, stuff I wrote for 3pp that I am particularly happy with:

Appendix N Adventures Add-Ons #1 (in particular Gifts of the Only and A Lesson From Turtles)
Crawl! fanzine #9 (The Arwich Grinder)
FT 0: Prince Charming, Reanimator
FT 1: Creeping Beauties of the Wood
FT 2.1: Three Nights in Portsmouth
FT 2: The Portsmouth Mermaid
HT 1: The Perils of Cinder Claws
Silent Nightfall
The Falcate Idol
The Stars are Falling (I wrote 3/5ths of the adventures therein)

I am a collector so have bought more than I could ever play.

But I want to echo some of what was said.

Carnival of the Damned - this is an amazing adventure imo. It could be treated as a series of encounters. It can be run as a long adventure with a shockingly engaging story (shocking in that the theme belies the fact the story has all the feels). It is just killer and one of my top picks right now.

Prince Charming, Reanimator - I hadn't realized Crowking was the Daniel Bishop who wrote this adventure. When he posted above - he is being humble. The adventure is sharp. It has enough references to classic fairy tales that I feel like it is the perfect hook for a new gamers and young gamers. I love Appendix N stuff, but often the references are lost on players who aren't into the culture. This remedies that by giving those little light bulb moments of recognizing the tale and then pulling the rug out from under them with a twist. Heck, the Faerie Animal as a player character class in the second book is worth the price of admission alone.

----
Those are my top two picks for third party at the moment. And I know it is first party, but I am also a total nerd for the Chained Coffin set. Being from Appalachia I extra enjoyed it.

Not sure if you meant us to include such things, but this is THE most invaluable set of 3PPs for me...

Daniel, you said...

Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad #2

Why that issue particularly?

Just curious.

Based on the recommendations above I picked up the hardback of the Sunken City Omnibus. Even setting aside how great a module it is - this is a really nicely printed book. I got the deluxe edition and was impressed with the paper and how colorful it is.

Thank you! I'm very glad you like it: I know the premium hardback costs quite a bit to print, so I'm thrilled when folks find it a worthy investment. :)

Hope you have a great time running the adventures.

Boy, that is a tough list to make. I had to do lucky number 13 instead of 10...sorry. Off the top of my head, in no particular order:

Sunken City Omnibus by Purple Sorcerer (Perils of the Sunken City is a great funnel, and this is a cool place to revisit in your campaign).
Angels, Daemons and Beings Between by Dragon's Hoard Publishing (because you can never have enough gods or patrons)
Carnival of the Damned by Purple Sorcerer (an awesome adventure that I was lucky enough to playtest).
Steel and Fury by Purple Duck (lots of cool ideas for mighty deeds)
Nebin Pendlebrook's Perilous Pantry by Purple Sorcerer (another awesome, and creepy, funnel).
Tales from the Fallen Empire by Chapter 13 Press (very cool as another dimension in your campaign or as a "lost world" removed from your main campaign land).
Transylvanian Adventures by Land of Phantoms (haven't run a game purely of this, but have pulled many ideas from it).
The Well of Souls by Stormlord Publishing (yet another awesome low level adventure)
Liber Arcanum by Cognition Pressworks (some really cool alternative magic options)
Attack of the Frawgs by Thick Skull Adventures (Lots of funnels on this list, which is why my group ran so many funnels early in the campaign and ended up with a pool of "reserve" characters)
Ruins of Ramat by Brave Halfling Publishing (ran this with only two players and had a blast!)
Critters, Creatures and Denizens by Cognition Pressworks (handy for more mundane animals and has a crit table for Fairies!)
Crawl #9 "The Arwich Grinder" by Straycouches Press (Lovecraftian themed funnel that is as good as anything else out there!)

Also, it isn't a DCC product per se...but I have gotten a lot of use from the Petty Gods OSR supplement.

This of course, only scratches the surface! Enjoy!

P.S. Alternate Occupations by IDD Company is also excellent.

Thanks for the shout out, I appreciate it. I am very proud of this work. Soon to be revised =)

Uhh...for my money some of the most important ones for any DCC campaign include:
-Steel & Fury: excellent resource for expanded Mighty Deeds/crits/fumbles
-Critters, Creatures & Denizens: a "Monster Manual" for DCC, fully statted creatures, mutation tables/rules, angel and demon crit tables etc.
-Liber Arcanum - more spells and additional rules for magic
-Divinities & Cults I and II: Gods historical and otherwise in DCC format...provides great templates for pimping your own for your campaign
-Angels, Daemons and Beings Between: a plethora of Patrons
-Crawl! zine
-Gongfarmers' Almanacs
-Phlogiston Books Vol 1
-Purple Sorcerer apps & printed products
-Hubris: a brilliant dark/gonzo/bizarro campaign world/setting. Has loads of tables hackable for any DCC campaign.

Hey all,

I came to this folder to post exactly this same question!

Can we get some updates? It's been several years since the majority of the lists were made, and I know a bunch of stuff has come out since then.

What is the new hotness? What are the classics that have held up to the test of time?

What should I be spending my hard-earned $$$ on?

Thanks!
