Caper Crew: Player Options for Heists


With the recent release of the Keys from the Golden Vault anthology, heists are finding a place of prominence in many fifth-edition D&D campaigns. Such adventures require meticulous planning and flawless execution by a caper crew with a very particular set of varied skills. Exceptional stealth, proficiency at breaking and entering, clever problem solving, adaptable versatility, and highly developed social skills are only some of the traits a character might need.

Presented herein are two new backgrounds ideal for characters in a heist crew along with ten new feats representing emerging or deepening skills a character could develop to prepare for a caper challenge.

As a bonus, this supplement also revives the blackjack/sap, a weapon featured in earlier editions of D&D, designed to concuss targets into unconsciousness—the perfect tool for a crew looking to knock out pesky guards without resorting to murder…

So whether you've been employed by the Golden Vault, you're an Eberron house agent or Ravnican guild member looking to steal a rival organization's secrets, you want to break an imprisoned soul out of the Theran Underworld, or you're simply hoping to pilfer a fortune from a bank in Athkatla or a priceless gnomish artifact from a museum in Mount Nevermind, this supplement provides everything you'll need to develop the right character for the job….

Rules Edition(s)
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.
