100 Oddities for a Thieves' Guild


Welcome to Skirmisher Publishing’s Oddities for a Thieves’ Guild, second entry in an ever-expanding series of curiosities for places absurd, bizarre, creepy, devastated, enervated, and frustrated (we can go on and come up with an entire alphabet of abject adjectives, but we have already calibrated our cogitation contraptions to alliterative mode). 

Oddities are the details that can transform a 10’x10’ room into a memorable encounter and can be mundane or magical, trivial, obtuse, unusual, unsettling, and even horrifying. You provide the big items like critters, adversaries, mustachioed villains, history, treasure, and context, and we give you embellishments that can enhance any encounter — or hijack it for a hard left turn or even an about face. 

Oddities are intended to aid GM creativity and turn possibly bland areas or gaming episodes into something more. The goal of this publication and the others in this series is to make things more fun and to take your imagination in directions it might not otherwise have gone. 

Volumes in this popular and bestselling series include 100 Oddities for a Chaotic Mutation100 Oddities for a Creepy Old House100 Oddities for a Dungeon100 Oddities for a Found Car100 Oddities for an Enchanted Forest100 Oddities for an Egyptian Tomb100 Oddities for a Graveyard100 Oddities for a Pilgrimage Trail100 Oddities for a Sewer100 Oddities for a Thieves’ Guild100 Oddities for a Treasure Horde100 Oddities for a Viking Encounter100 Oddities for a Wasteland100 Oddities for a Wizard’s Library, and 100 Oddities for a Wizard’s Tower

You walk into an empty room... ugh how boring! Now your GM can spice things up on the fly! Some great fun ideas in this book for sure. [...]

Fun read, made me look over my shoulder more than once. I'd love to see maps with some of these items from the Oddities, a dark guildhall, with a few alcoves of suspicious items or even people. This works real well if you have players willing to [...]

All of the "Oddities" offerings from Skirmisher are awesome. They give GM's great ideas for random strangeness, intrigue and adventure that can be injected into a game campaign/setting. With some tweaking the oddities could even be adapted to [...]

I am the type of GM that seldom has time to prepare ahead of time. I never know for sure when I will have the chance to run a game so when I do it is great to have some tools that help in my time of need. The 100 Oddities line is a great example of [...]

This is a really fun item that can get your game creation moving in new directions and with added depth, like the Creepy House Oddities table list before it. I love these list generators. They're a super tool for GM prep. They're meant as embellish [...]

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.
