Break & Enter Book I: Stealth Encounters

Watermarked PDF

The crisp night air cuts across the guard's cheek. He shivers and mutters a curse under his breath, leaving a thin trail of white frost from his lips. Winter is coming and as the moon rises higher into the sky, the temperature continues to drop. His chainmail stiffens and the iron of his short sword has frosted to the scabbard. From the bushes, you slip your dagger gently into your hand and get ready for that perfect moment. When the guard grabs hold of his fur cloak and wraps it tighter around his chest, you leap forward and jab the blade deep into his back, slapping your other hand over his mouth. The guard gasps and the last puff of hot breath moistens your hand; the dagger punctured his lungs and it does not take long for all the air to escape through the wound. The shock of the killing blow makes the guard go limp in your arms and in a few moments, he is dead. Once the body is dragged into the bush, you wipe your dagger clean and move onto the next one.

Long has stealth been an essential element to fantasy roleplaying, yet never developed to its fullest potential... until now. Break & Enter Book I: Stealth Encounters provides you with new stealth options beyond just feats and powers. Using a new encounter type, any 4e character can potentially sneak up on a target and kill them with just one hit. No minions or repetitive skill challenges. Engage in stealth combat like never before with complete rules and guidelines for creating your own stealth encounters.

Break & Enter Book I: Stealth Encounters is the first of three volumes from Emerald Press PDF Publishing and designed by Todd Crapper. Includes over 25 trials and 4 encounters, plus complete formulas for creating your own stealth encounters, quick conversions for regular monsters to guardians, an index, bookmarks, and layer selection for low-ink printing from home.

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.
