When used, the Lockpicks will bypass any checked stat rolls and instantly open a locked door or Treasure Chest. Using the Lockpicks consumes the item, so it is helpful to keep a short supply of them on hand, especially when going dungeon diving.
Lockpicks can be purchased from most shops and merchants fairly inexpensively. Lockpicks will also drop as loot from many enemies.
Both the Trapper and the Busker can begin a campaign with Lockpicks in their inventories.
