Thieves' Tools

I am curious about the function of Thieves' Tools. I'm already aware that any character can use them to attempt to open locks or disarm traps.

  • Are they consumed on use?
  • Can you give us some hints as to what sorts of tools make appropriate phys-reps for Thieves' Tools?
  • Are traps based on traditional mousetraps and fishing line, or something else?
  • Likewise for locks?

Awesome Glad your interested in Thieves Tools.

Thieves tools consist of two parts first a standard Tangram set (we have paper ones available at production ) and secondly any physical tools you bring with you for the purpose of disarming traps.

1) Theives tools can break when failing to attempt to break locks or setting off a trap either the tag on the lock will tell you or a near by martial. Thieves tools can not be repaired due to their detailed nature. More advanced lock picks might be found in play.

2) Scissors , Counter Weights, Mirrors on small sticks, Anything you might think of to disarm a trap, prisms and a timer.

3) Yes Traps are based on the traditional mousetraps at basic levels but their will be other sorts of traps as well such as weighted plates and spring traps as well.

4) Locks are solved using a Tangram patterns. The pattern is set when the lock is made. The more advanced a lock the more difficult the Tangram. Some more advanced locks even have roating gears and if you due not solve them in time a trap will go off or the gears will break your tools.
