I'm gonna run a one-off...
Anonymous 08/25/14(Mon)09:02 UTC+1 No.34384838 Report

I'm gonna run a one-off crime game like pic related, where the players have to rob a bank. I'm gonna give every player a secret objective. I've got a couple but I could use more.
So far I've got:
-Undercover cop
-Kill another player
-Get out with all or most money
Also what system should I use? I want something light, and kinda cinematic. I was thinking Savage worlds?

Use the system Reservoir Dogs used, it's pretty much made for this kind of thing.

Paranoia reskin.

For missions, make sure [certain player] walks out with the money. Destroy the loot before anyone else gets away with it. Ensure [certain player] doesn't make it out. You can't make it out of here.

Fiasco. The answer is always Fiasco.

No it isn't.

Yes it is, in this case most definetly. It's Reservoir Dogs: The Game, basically, and it handles the scenario OP outlined perfectly.

Try PDQ#, or maybe Wushu if you want it heavier on the action.

-Execute one of the hostages
-Kill 3+ cops
-Get yourself out alive no matter what
-Plant a virus in the security systems
-Use the bank manager to open the vault
-Only you must survive

>In case of a hostage situation, negotiate an escape vehicle.
>Get [McGuffin] from the vault without leaving witnesses to this.
>Prolong a hostage situation to last at least 3 (ingame) hours. [To cover up for another gang to do a thing while the inner city is blocked]
>Leave the bank via [route]. Make sure you aren't followed.
>Do not fire your weapon(s).
>[Civilian/Guard] must die. [They may have helped in the planning or be a valuable target to someone outside.]

What if I wanted to do something along the lines of Payday?
Several players working together with stealth tactics or big guns to rob banks, stores, steal from the mob and have fantastical getaways that they players will never be able to see or take part in until the driver crashes and generally be classy criminals?

The Leverage RPG is exactly what you want.

Well, to emulate the quality of the source material, I'd say you'd want to use D20 modern.

Or maybe mode FATAL to be modern.

Actually, Fiasco develops more like a Coen brothers movie, which may or may not be what OP is looking for. It also happens to have the added benefit that there's no GM, so the story will unfold unpredictably.
On the other hand if that's not what OP wants he should take a look at >>34395372 which is amazing.

There are actually people who liked that game? What possible redeeming factors does it have? it's just a boring slog of cover shooting.

Just because you think the video game is shit is no reason to recommend awful tabletop systems.
/tg/ has taken many awful things and made something good out of them.
Anonymous 08/26/14(Tue)04:51 UTC+1 No.34403490 Report

I wasn't seriously recommending them though. I was just making a joke about how notoriously bad the games are.

Oh, well, then that's different then. Nevermind!
Anonymous 08/26/14(Tue)04:55 UTC+1 No.34403560 Report

Anywho, to make up for that big misunderstanding, I'd have to say GURPS if you want realistic Gritty crime, Fate for more pulpy, Leverage style shenanigans(Never played the actual Leverage RPG, so can't comment on the quality), and if you want "EVERYONE FUCKS UP IN CRAZY AND FUN WAYS" go for Fiasco. T

They all bring their own unique spin, and depends exactly what tone OP is going for.

>entirely average game with some subpar graphics and above average tone and characters
