Everyone loves a good mystery.

Detectives is the ultimate sourcebook for anyone who wants to add an extra dose of intrigue and suspense to an investigation campaign. This sourcebook is your guide to recreating the thrills and chills of your favorite cop show, detective movie or mystery novel.

 

Detectives: Investigation Sourcebook for d20 gives players and GMs all the tools they need to enter into the world of twisted plots and impenetrable mysteries. Whether your game is an urban crime drama, a psychological thriller or an old fashioned murder mystery, this book has everything you need to bring the story to life. This sourcebook has something for everyone, whether the heroes are hardboiled investigators out looking for clues or unstoppable secret agents out to save the world. It doesn't matter if your villain is a serial killer, a madman bent on world domination or a dirty politician just trying to cover his tracks, this book can help you create a fast paced adventure that keeps your players on their toes and looking over their shoulders.

 

Detectives helps a GM add just the right twists and turns to keep the investigators on their toes. This book contains helpful hints for dispensing clues, managing contacts and throwing the players off the trail. Do your players ever end up running in circles? This sourcebook can help you keep the game on track with ideas for adding intrigue, pacing the adventure, handling side plots, and managing tips and information. Ever feel like the players are just following a trail of breadcrumbs? Detectives can help you dish out subtle leads that keep the plot moving forward without giving away the ending.

 

Inside this book you will also dastardly villains that can be customized to fit any adventure. If you ever get stuck for an adventure idea, perhaps you can find randomly generated inspiration with 100 outlandish conspiracies. Need a minor bad guy in a hurry? Try the random encounter chart with more than a dozen complete NPCs. Tons of examples help illustrate the many ways that a GM can deal with the elements of an investigation campaign. Elements such as suspense, intrigue, red herrings and the inevitable response that comes when the characters get too close to the truth.

 

Players can use this sourcebook to tweak their investigators with skills, feats and classes that are perfectly suited for this type of adventure. Don't let your sleuthing character get caught off guard when it comes time for detective work. Learn how to get the most use out of skills like Investigate and Gather Information. New skills like Deduction and Knowledge (city) will help you find your way. New feats such as Convenient Knowledge and Seducer can help you out of a tight spot.

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.
