Five Torches Deep: Stealth


In-depth infiltration rules, stealth spells, and more!

Ideal for groups that focus on heists, assassinations, and other stealth missions. Keep up the spirit of old-school adjudication with updated, clear mechanics for subterfuge. 

FTD: Stealth has subsystems for:

  • Infiltrations
  • New approaches to "stealth"
  • Poisons, garb, and underhanded sundries
  • The new Infiltrator archetype
  • 18 new stealth-centric spells
  • Details and guidelines for GMs running stealth missions

Designed for Five Torches Deep but compatible with any classic six-stat adventure game. FTD: Stealth clarifies much of the ambiguity in stealth mechanics, gives a reason for the party to stick together during a heist, and leverages a new push-your-luck Infiltration system including six ability-specific approaches to stealth, stealth kills, and a ticking clock to being caught.

This is great! I'll have to crunch the math on porting it to Stars Without Number (my current OSR favourite), especially since it uses 2d6 for skill resolution and has lower total roll modifiers in general, but I love the "betting" element in each leg. Probably going to use it in my The Nightmares Underneath horror-city-point-crawl in some way too! Good stuff.

Any plans to put all the additional suppliments as a physical book? Like a Kickstarter. I would very much enjoy this.

I haven't even played FTD yet, but I love the premise, even so that some of my regulars are buying it, so maybe soon. But I would like the additional content for my shelf ;)

As a first comment: I continue to buy these splats even though I don't play much D&Desque fantasy games or have plans to run them.

Because damn it's often a very neat, concise take on bits that RPG's are bad at and light enough to work adjustments too. Both Stealth and Duels are fantastic examples of this.

I only really feel comfortable reviewing stuff I've actively used in a game.

Which is hard when, as I said above, I don't really play FTD past just appreciating the way you guys weave stuff.

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.
