No Map, No Plan

Selected Option:

A good heist requires an immense amount of careful setup. Details about the security, the target, the way in and the way out, the crew, the tools needed, all of those need to be studied and planned for extremely carefully in order to make success as likely as possible.

You have none of that.

There’s a big fancy estate up on that hill that you know has to be full of all sorts of goodies.

There’s you.

And there’s the cover of darkness.

You have no idea what you’re heading into tonight, where anything is, or how you’re going to get away, but you’re still determined to make a fortune with

No Map, No Plan.

A sample of prompts from the game - some difficulties the thieves will run into, and some Treasure!

No Map, No Plan is a GMless roleplaying game for one to four players based on Cat McDonald's Carta system, in which you take on the role of a thief (or thieves) completely winging the heist of a rich estate with zero preparation or foreknowledge, in complete violation of the common sense about such things.

Cards conceal obstacles, chances to recover, loot, and even the way out, and you'll move from card to card discovering things as you go along. You’ll respond to prompts, try to remain stealthy, acquire treasure, and try to find your way out before you can get caught. Designed for PocketQuest 2024, and discounted for the duration of the event!

I'm not familiar with the Carta system, but from your description am I right in understanding that it uses a standard deck of cards and no dice?

At the basic SRD level, Carta uses just a deck of cards - NM,NP, like some other iterations of the system (it's floated as an option in the SRD itself), does use dice - or rather a single d12 - to resolve Stealth Checks.

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.
