In light of current events, I have decided to offer this adventure for free. It's a small gesture but I hope it can help a little bit.

Heist on Cassalanter Villa

A one-shot conversion for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist

The Black Viper is recruiting a team of thieves for her greatest heist yet: emptying the Cassalanter vault right under its owners' noses, during their yearly Founders' Day feast. Three separate keys and a secret codeword are required to open the vault, but she has a team of elite operatives and an arsenal of magical gadgets on her side. This is your mission, should you choose to accept it...

The Black Viper

This module provides you with all the tools required to run a single session mission using the Cassalanter Villa location provided in Waterdeep: Dragon Heist. The players take the roles of a band of thieves who attempt to steal the Cassalanter fortune from their subterranean vault.

Included are:

  • Seven premade level 5 characters, including conversions for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist NPCs such as the Black Viper and Renaer Neverember and some new faces like the kenku specialist Rolling Bones or the half-orc hired muscle Runagar. Each comes with a stat block and full list of spells, as well as a unique secret to add an interesting twist to the mission.
  • A list of magic items the party can purchase to aid in their mission, from gloves of thievery to a forged lord's ensemble.
  • Blueprints of the villa to use as a player handout.
  • Special rules for running the heist (gather the crew, buy items, plan the heist, face off against the Cassalanters).
  • Tips and tricks in an "advice to the GM" section.
Requires the Waterdeep: Dragon Heist adventure.

This sounds fantastic, and fits into the background of one of my players. One question: How tough would it be to work in the players using their characters? Or is the idea that the players run the NPCs through the adventure?

Hi Jesse,

I didn't change or add anything to the Cassalanter villa from Dragon Heist in this module. What this expansion offers is:

- premade characters
- a magic item shopping list
- handouts (primarily a player-version of the map)
- DM advice on how to run the villa heist

You can totally use your own characters, and still get some value out of the magic items, map, and advice. It's up to you whether you think it's worth the price :-)

This adventure does assume that the Cassalanter family is going ahead with the ritual - I don't know how your campaign is playing out but without that you'd have to do some work to make it all fit.

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.
