Blazing Redvain sap (vial)
From the very fierce, burning rare mushroom this sap can be tapped. When a used (as a bonus action) you can use this burning sap to burn through almost anything…You gain advantage on the roll to pick the lock AND you don’t need thieves tools..

Flash Powder
This special powder made by one of the top secret alchemists within the guild is a concockture of all sorts of ingredients. Things that allegedly go in are pepper, ammonium salt and there is even rumor that the scales of a vile reptile is used. As an action you can throw this power up to 20feet. You need to make a ranged attack against a creature. You can treat the powder as an improvised weapon. On a hit the target is blinded for 1 minute. The target creature can end this effect if they use their action to make a succesfull DC15 CON check.

Climbing Gear Extravaganza
You’ve heard of climbing gear but this one is a bit more special. Beside the standard 30feet rope you will get a set of daggers, a small grappling and a ‘swift escape’. The daggers are about 8inches and are flat with a flat broad handle. The daggers are stiff and you can easily wedge them between stones, wood, any surface that entir;y smooth or sturdy as diamont. The mini grappling isn’t strong enough to hold you but it can shoot up small things such as a message or a rock or make even a smoke bomb. Last but not least you’ll have the ‘swift escape’ which is a neatly folded blanket. Hold it on the handles and jump off any surface higher than 45 feet and the blanket will unfold making sure you land softly on your feet.

Cloud slippers
Made by a wizard long ago for his king who lived in his golden palace so the King would finally hear silence, luckily the guild found out how to make those lovely slippers. While wearing these white soft delicious slippers your movement is reduced by 10 feet but you are practically floating over the floor. You have advantage on any Stealth(DEX) checks made against you.

Glass Cutter
It's made in collaboration by miners and engineers; It's a tiny piece of Diamond cut in a very sharp edged shape and usually comes with small pieces of metal around it so you can use it almost like a pen. The diamont will cut through any mundane glass without making a noise.

Key Making Kit
Very straight forward thieves tools; a kit to duplicate and reproduce keys. The kit used wax bars and several metal cases to duplicate a key. It takes 1 hour to duplicate a key. All keys can be duplicated except for the skeleton key; magic keys can be duplicated but there will be no magical effect. Be careful where to store the duplicate keys; if its gets to hot they might melt!.

Hear Ear
Originally used for an old blacksmith, this Hear Ear is a big brass cone. The small end goes to your ear, the big end goes to whatever surface you try to listen behind or in a general direction to eavesdrop on people’s conversations. You gain advantage on hearing based WIS (Perception) checks.

Magnifying Glass
Straight forward magnifying glass. When you use it to inspect things with it you can advantage on your INT roll.

Made by Dewey from Seabrys, this very handy contraption is an extendable thin pole. Normally its fits in a backpack, extended about 3 feet long. On each side there is a small mirror which you can twist and turn using the middle part of the pole. You can use this to look around the corners.

Skeleton Key
A key that can open many many different locks…. You can automatically open any lock with a DC 20 or lower.The key can be used 10 times after that is just a decorative key.


Smoke bomb
When thrown (range 15ft) the bomb cracks open and releases a thick grey fog. All targets within the fog are blinded for a duration of 1 turn. The fog can also be used to sneak away or hid oneself.

Special Smoke bomb - Sleep or Confusion
These very special bomb, custom made by the guild's best alchemist can do something rather unique. When this smoke bomb is thrown(range 15ft) the fog released from it will be either pink can will cause ALL the creatures within range (who breathe oxigen the moment the bomb relases its fog) to fall a sleep for 1 turn. Or the fog will be blue and ALL the creatures within range (who breathe oxigen the moment the bomb relases its fog) will be so confused that they won't even reconize their own mothers for 1 turn

Tinker ring
Made by Dewy from Tik Tok Tinkershop in Seabrys, this special ring contains some marvelous engineering! When you turn on the small right side knob on the side of the ring the fake jewel on top will subtract and reveal a small set of lockpicks. When turned on the left knob on the other side of the ring the main lockpick will start to swirl around. Ideal for picking very small locks of other engineered material such as a hidden compartment inside a cuckoo clock….

Otherway shoe’s
Designed to set prosecutors on a false trail these ‘shoes’ can be fitted underneath all small to medium creature sized foot/shoe’s. It's a contraction in which you put your foot (with or without a normal shoe) and underneath there will be a shoe sole of a different size pointing the other way. So when you walk with these on you will make a track in a othersize than yourself and it will guide the people tracking you in the opposite direction! (all non magical tracking will automatically fail) These contraptions are very fragile though and can only be used 1d4 times before they break.
