It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Meta-answer: WotC has a catalog of third-party partners. There is a somewhat larger list here; at first glance, the second list includes foreign language novel partners and such along with people producing 4e material.

Neither list includes publishers who've chosen not to sign up for the GSL, such as Kobold Quarterly. The lists also appear to be out of date; for example, Nevermet Press uses the GSL and is not listed.

Another selection of third party products can be found on RPGNow. This list is composed of products that have been tagged as 4e products, and may include non-rules material -- e.g., 650 Fantasy City Encounter Seeds & Hooks is completely mechanics-free.

I see Goodman mentioned a lot. What do they do that stands out? – anon186 Sep 6 '10 at 23:37
Cheap and prolific, mainly. They were a steady source of modules in the 3E days for D&D, and have maintained that role. – Jadasc Sep 6 '10 at 23:45

Enhanced 4E.

First publication is Combat in Motion. Available here:

Mongoose Publishing released a Tom-Clancy-esque setting for 4e called Wraith Recon. They're no longers supporting that version, and converting it to use their RuneQuest II system instead.
