Description:

So You Think You Can Steal?

 

            Anyone with a few ranks in Sleight of Hand can be a pick-pocket, and it only takes a cudgel to be a mugger, but there is another class of thief as well, the crème-de-la-crème of crime, which has stolen hearts and captivated imaginations for hundreds of years: the gentleman thief. These princes of the night possess great cunning and guile, and prefer to outwit their opponents, instead of overpower them. They are also gifted with great charm, which allows them to win over the hearts of even those they steal from. Despite their crimes, it’s often all but impossible not to sympathize and secretly root for these dastardly scoundrels, and many are considered heroes.

 

            It’s hard to be the best, though, and the role of gentleman thief is a hard one to play. That’s where Character Guides: The Gentleman Thief comes in. This book examines the archetype of the gentleman thief, providing perspective on what truly makes them what they are, and how you can go about making a memorable and effective gentleman thief character for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game or the 3.5 OGL, both from the perspective of roleplaying advice and information, and more mechanical angles, such as what feats, magic items, and so on will lend themselves best to well-prepared cat burglar, and a brand new prestige class specifically for those who want to be a gentleman thief.

 

            Additionally, the book provides GMs with a wealth of information about running games involving gentleman thieves, with a close look at some of the more common difficulties that these types of characters can cause in an adventuring party, and how to resolve them, as well as advice on how to best support gentleman thief characters by providing them with ways to put their persona to good use.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
