This underground-published work travels in seedy circles. It is the go-to work for any desirous to prevent pickpocketing or desirous to improve their pickpocketing skills. After 2 months of intense study, a reader adds 5 levels to their own to detect pick pocketing attempts (for example, a 2nd-level fighter would be treated as a 7th-level fighter to detect pick pocketing). Additionally, those who can pick pocket gain a +10% chance of success, and treat their targets as if they were 2 levels lower for detection purposes. For example, if the fighter above was faced by a thief who has also studied Pickpockets, the fighter would be treated as a 5th-level fighter (2+5-2).

The Comparative Study is an exhaustive work of immense scholarship only achievable over centuries of effort.  500 years ago, the elven wizard Fintarfius willingly accepted a polymorph other to transform himself into a hobgoblin to learn more about his race’s goblin and hobgoblin enemies. He then traveled into their lands and eventually became their king. He ruled for more than two centuries, before tiring of his task and returning to his people. When he returned, he penned this excellent work along with several others regarding goblins and hobgoblins.
