Kidnap the Archpriest

Watermarked PDF

The Archpriest, leader of the Church, has defied a summons to the Immortal Capital. You have been chosen to retrieve the recalcitrant pontiff.

Kidnap the Archpriest is designed to be an implicit tutorial for diplomacy, stealth, theft, bluffing, and cunning. It is a system-less, setting-less heist module featuring:

  • a city (with a map)
  • a fortress (with interior and exterior maps)
  • two hectic days and nights
  • a guide to designing your own heists.
  • glorious black and white art by Luka Rejec
  • scheming cardinals, frantic servants, and secret plots

By the author of the CoinsandScrolls blog and Tomb of the Serpent Kings.

I like the premise of this adventure: heists, kidnappings, jailbreaks, burglaries and manipulating events without slaughtering everything in sight seem underrepresented in modules. The materials have been edited down to the essentials; the minimalist [...]

Fantastic Module, clean layout, great art, and a through and welll designed heist adventure. the system and setting neutral design considerations really pull through, with little reskinning this can be dropped into any campaign. The heist design princi [...]

The very best. Nothing is quite like it, but Kidnap the Archpriest will probably outdo anything that imitates it. [...]

Original electronic
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.
