Best Books for Adventures? 3 Years, 6 Months ago  
Can anyone recommend adventure books (d&d Fantasy, new and old) where I can pull plot lines and use them in my group's D&D adventures?

A little blurb about the book would be nice, too.

Use stories from folklore, literature and legends.
You are the DM and in control; do what you think is fun!

Beowulf
The Song of Roland
The Hobbit
Lord of the Rings
The Belgariad
The Malloreon
The Canterbury Tales
The Adventures of Robin Hood
The Argonauts
and so forth.

Do not wait for someone else to set up the adventure for you.
Have fun!

Well, for urban/city adventure it doesn't get any better than Ptolus. There are literally hundreds of plot lines and adventure hooks in Ptolus fleshed out from just a few lines to fully integrated adventure paths. Ptolus was the setting that Monte Cook used to develop and play-test the 3.0 D&D rules.

Best gaming money I ever spent was on Ptolus. (not counting DF of course!)

Here is a blurb:

Ptolus was created for D&D v3.x and it seems to be out of stock. Is there also a v4.0 version or, at the very least, info on how to convert it to 4.0?

Harneloot, would you still buy Ptolus for use with d&d v4.0?

User7886, thank you for the list of great books. I'm sure to find inspirational ideas by reading them.

If you are really into Ptolus, then Ed Bourelle's Skeleton Key Games can help you plan the layouts you use your master Maze to play in.
He has Ptolus-specific 2d Map sets that he and Cook agreed on at RPGNow.
I use Skelton Key Games paper mapping pieces to plan out my Master Maze layouts so this might help you.
