Breaking & Entering: A Toolbox for Thieves

Watermarked PDF

The purpose of this document is to expand the basic idea of the thief as presented in the OSRIC™ basic rules. This is not an official rules expansion though this document was written specifically for use with the OSRIC™ rules. With a little work, it can also be used with other sword and sorcery type games popular in the 1970s and 1980s. The enterprising GM may use this material as written, in whole or in part, or simply use this material as inspiration for his or her own unique interpretation of the thief class. “Breaking & Entering” will add the following items to the GM's toolbox: New skills, and a fresh look at an existing skill set. A closer look at spying. An expanded list of weapons allowable to thieves. A new PC class based upon the thief, the Deep Scout. A new PC class, the Bard. A complete Thieves Guild Chapter House for inclusion in your home campaign. Various patron deities for the spiritually minded sneak-thief. New magic weapons both mundane and magical and miscellaneous items for the stealth based classes. While writing this material, the litmus test for the new classes, equipment, and abilities was always game balance. We have sought historical accuracy as much as possible, but accuracy has of necessity taken a back seat to making the material merge seamlessly with the existing rules.

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.
