Book of Roguish Luck

Watermarked PDF

A character sourcebook for rogues, bards, and troublemakers by Wolfgang Baur

A silent footstep. The turn of a card. The glitter of a knife in the dark, and the quiet kill. These are the tools of adventurers who live by their wits, deep in the shadows. But even the most skilled rogues adore and worship Lady Luck, who often holds the difference between success and failure.

The Book of Roguish Luck offers the new Luck rules subsystem for all classes, plus the bandit, gutter mage, and shadowsworn core classes and three prestige classes. In addition, it presents expanded guild rules, the shadow magic school of rogue spells, expanded sneak attack rules, new equipment, more than 30 feats, and almost 80 spells.

This book expands thieves’ guilds to include complete stats, resources, and initiation rituals. The Book of Roguish Luck also shows you how to fence goods, gamble to win, pick locks, bribe officials, and -- simply put -- raise hell.

Also features guidelines for using the book with Monte Cook’s Arcana Evolved.

Stealthier. Smarter. Tricksier. Luckier. . .

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.
