You had the perfect plan. You gathered the information, got access to the security files, manipulated the staff schedule and planned to overcome whatever contingency could arise. Except for the fates to decide that it was time for EVERYTHING. GOING. WRONG.

And your Crew is the one to blame.

Tenías el plan perfecto.Habías reunido la información, conseguido acceso a los archivos de seguridad, manipulado los horarios del personal y preparado planes para superar cualquier posible contingencia. Excepto que el Destino eligiera que había llegado el momento de que TODO. SALIERA. MAL.

Y tu Banda tiene la culpa.

THE HEIST GOES WRONG is a narrative roleplaying game in which we will play to see how things can go awfully wrong despite all the preparation we put into something. This game takes the spirit of plays like THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG or the tv series THE GOES WRONG SHOW and applies those ideas to roleplaying games about perfect heists. 

WHAT IS THIS GAME ABOUT?
This one is a little bit different to your usual rpg. Or at least I hope it feels that way. Bear with me. This game is about daring heist in which the players will do their best to execute the magnificent plan of The Mastermind to steal something really cool and shiny and rich. All this things. Unfortunately, their “Best” doesn’t amount to much. Maybe it’s their ineptitude. Maybe it’s just bad luck. But whatever the reason behind it, everything that could go wrong in this heist WILL GO WRONG. And then some. And whose fault would it be? The players, of course. In this game, the players will do their worst to turn this heist in the kind of tale you share with your friends, beer in one hand, a handkerchief in the other.

THE GOES WRONG THING
A few years ago, a theater play premiered in London, a satire based on The Mousetrap, in which the audience was invited to witness a performance in which everything that could go wrong, did. Mishap after mishap derailed the story, and it was hilarious to see how the actors tried to savage the story while improvising. It was a play within a play, a fun look at the behind scenes of a theater play.

A couple of years ago I was able to see the play in my city, and I had a really great time. I didn’t even knew about it before that day, and suddenly I kept finding clips online about the play, and other stuff inspired on it, like the TV show. It stuck with me. And once i decided to try to participate in this year Pocketquest, somehow it came back to haunt me.

THE ADVERSARIAL THING
This is an adversarial RPG. Kind of.

The Mastermind (that’s what I’m calling the gamemaster in this game) main objective is to tell the story of a perfect heist. He must have a plan about how the heist will be executed and what will happen in the game. He must do his very best to try to railroad the players, to make sure that they accomplish the objective and steal the thing (whatever that is).

The Crew (that’s the players) are just here to have fun at the expense of The Mastermind. They will be in charge of narrate how their characters screw things up and how fate makes it very hard for them to complete the heist. They will pull out the heist, but in the most fun and ridiculous way.



THE HEIST GOES WRONG es un juego de rol narrativo en el que ugamos para ver como las cosas pueden ir terriblemente mal a pesar de toda la preparación que le dediquemos. Este juego coge el espiritu de obras de teatro como LA FUNCIÓN QUE SALE MAL  o su versión televisiva THE GOES WRONG SHOW y aplica sus ideas a los juegos de rol sobre atracos perfectos. 

¿DE QUE VA ESTE JUEGO?
Este juego es un poco diferente de tu típico juego de rol. O al menos esa es la intención. Sígueme el rollo. Este juego va sobre atrevidos golpes en el que los jugadores deben darlo todo para ejecutar el magnífico plan de El Cerebro para robar algo realmente guay y brillante. Lo típico. Desafortunadamente, “darlo todo” aquí no da para mucho. Quizás sean unos inútiles. Quizás solo sea mala suerte. Por sea por la razón que sea, todo lo que podría ir mal en este golpe VA A IR MAL. Y luego peor.¿Y de quien es la culpa? De los jugadores, por supuesto. En este juego los jugadores harán lo que puedan convertir este Golpe en el tipo de desgracia que cuentas a tus amigos con una cerveza en una mano, y un paño de lágrimas en la otra.

LO DE VA MAL
Hace algún tiempo se estrenó una obra de teatro en Londres, una sátira basada en La Ratonera de Agatha Christie, en la que la audiencia tiene la ocasión de presenciar una representación teatral en la que todo lo que puede salir mal... sale mal. Accidente tras accidente amenazan con descarrilar la historia, y es hilarante ver como los actores improvisan mientras tratan de salvar la obra, Era una obra dentro de una obra, una mirada divertida a lo que ocurre entre las bambalinas de una representación teatral.

Unos años más tarde tuve la ocasión de asistir a una representación de esta obra en mi ciudad, que disfrute enormemente. Ni siquiera había oído hablar de la misma hasta aquel día, pero a partir de ese día no hacía más que toparme en redes con clips sacados de la obra y de otras cosas inspiradas por la misma, como la serie de televisión. Se me quedo en la cabeza. Y una vez decidí participar en el Pocketquest de este año, de algún modo la obra volvió a rondarme por la cabeza.

LO DE CONFRONTACIONAL
Este es un juego de rol Confrontacional. Por así decirlo.

El objetivo principal del Cerebro (que es como llamo al Director de Juego. ) es contar la historia de un Golpe perfecto. Debe tener una idea clara de cómo se ejecutara el Golpe y que ocurrirá de manera ideal durante el juego. Debe hacer todo lo posible por “guiar” a los jugadores para asegurarse que logran su objetivo y roban “la cosa” (sea lo que sea).

La Banda (estos son los jugadores) están aquí para pasar un buen rato a costa del Cerebro. Estarán encargados de narrar como sus personajes la lían parda y como el destino les pone muy difícil completar su Golpe. Posiblemente logren sacar adelante el plan, pero de la manera mas ridícula y divertida posible.

“One could mention many lovable traits in Smee. For instance, after killing, it was his spectacles he wiped instead of his weapon.”
—J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

These rules are written to encourage players to know better their comrades on the ship, to make them feel like real people, who can evolve and grow alongside them, and whose death or disappearances might mean something substantial, that will make life as a pirate more real.

The daughters of Vodacce with the gift are a sign of good fortune and a very valued property that can bring wealth to a fortunate family.

No one remembers when was the last time that three sisters were born with the gift. Until now.

The Mezzanotte sisters were born with their destiny already written, but they are determined to find a new path and get their freedom. 
Will you be able to help them fight against the forces of Fate?

This supplement offers a couple of new spins on the Corruption concept, introducing a new background that relays on it while adapting a classical figure of spanish literature, el Pícaro (and offering a nod to old-time 7th Sea 1st edition players) and an alternative Corruption Rule to ease the first forays of the players into that dark waters...

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.
