The Roleplayer's Guide to Heists

Selected Option:

Heists are some of the most fun you can have during an RPG session - the in-depth planning, the nail biting execution, the thrilling escape and the glorious payoff! Whats not to love?

But heists can be hard to write and even harder to pull off properly. They take almost as much work as the real thing to plan, and that can bring your campaign to agrinding halt. Lucky for you, the San Jenaro Co-op is here to help!

The Roleplayer's Guide To Heists is a system agnostic collection of 35 heists ranging from your standard bank jobes, to space based sci-fi capers, to fantasy smash-jobs into a wizard's mind-realm. If you like stealing stuff (in games) and getting away with it, this book has everything you could want!

Each heist comes complete with a detailed map of the joint for you to properly case; oodles of scene hooks, enemies and traps, ideas for the getawat and of course the loot itself. With essays on the finer points of how to run heists in your campaign and tables full of security systems, adversaries and loot ideas, this book is ideal for any gaming table.

A half-gig file is huge. Can you do a smaller file size too? 500 meg is very large for most tablet, phone pdf readers to cope with.

The file (both in pages and spreads) listed as "smallest" is the 72 dpi versions you want at only 13mb

Thank you. I was worried that my tablet wouldn't cope with the 500mb version. :-)

Will this get a PoD option?

Yes! Files have been uploaded for PoD, due to Covid delays there is often around a 1 month turn-around on print proof delivery. So in about a month, baring any issues with the print it should be available for print! (Also will knock the price of the PDF off of the print version for anyone that buys the PDF now. Don't wanna punish anyone for supporting us now, by making them drop extra cash they wouldn't need too!)

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.
