Cheap Shot (1/turn). The master thief deals an extra 14 (4d6) damage when it hits a target with a weapon attack if it doesn’t have disadvantage on the attack roll and the target is flat-footed, it has advantage on the attack roll, or when the target is within 1 meter of an enemy of the target that isn’t incapacitated.

Cunning Action. On each of its turns, the master thief can use an additional action. This action can only be used to make a Sleight of hand or Stealth check or use the Dash, Disengage, or Use an Object action.
