Premium Content


Foundry Virtual Tabletop offers access to a variety of premium content from fantastic publishers and content creators who are bringing their games and content to our platform. Premium content allows you to purchase assets, adventures, game content, and other published materials converted to digital format and pre-configured for optimal use in Foundry Virtual Tabletop. Our approach to premium content allows publishers to sell products designed for in Foundry VTT directly to customers, who can then activate that content and install it directly from within the software.

Browse Available Premium Content

Every premium content package offered by Foundry Virtual Tabletop can be found on the Premium Content packages list. Each premium content listing features a link to the publisher's store where you may purchase that premium product. Foundry VTT does not operate a storefront or content marketplace, the purchasing of premium content occurs through the storefronts managed by the content publisher or creator.

You can get access to Foundry VTT premium content by purchasing a content key or by subscribing to a creator on Patreon and linking your Patreon account to your Foundry VTT account. The instructions below will walk you through how to activate content from both sources:

Content Key

As part of the checkout process when purchasing Premium Content for Foundry Virtual Tabletop, you should receive an email containing a content activation key. If you have not received a content key for your purchase after 15 minutes, please reach out to the publisher from whom you purchased the content. Redeeming the content key will activate the content for your Foundry Virtual Tabletop account, and that key can no longer be used for any other account. It is important to make sure you are activating the content key on the correct account.

To activate a key:

  1. Log-in to the Foundry Virtual Tabletop website
  2. Head to your Purchased Content page
  3. Copy and paste your content key into the Content Key field
  4. Click the Activate Content button

Once activated, the Content Key is added to your account and no further steps are required. Your premium content will appear in your "Unlocked Premium Content" list, showcasing what content you have permission to access via the Premium Content section of the package installer in Foundry Virtual Tabletop.

Patreon Content
  1. Support the creator at a tier that includes Foundry VTT support
  2. Log in on the Foundry VTT website
  3. Edit your profile here
  4. Link your Patreon account at the bottom of the page if you haven't already
  5. Verify that they show up under your subscriptions. If they don't appear as expected under the "Subscribed Content" page of your user profile, you may need to Refresh your Patreon link

Once you have linked your Foundry Virtual Tabletop account to Patreon, you can head to the Subscribed Content section of your profile page to see the modules that you can access.
