  • Ah, Leverage. How could this one not be a great episode? Back in the early 80s there was an RPG from Gamelords called Thieves Guild. It was designed for the PCs to be burglars, footpads, highwaymen and other persons of questionable moral character. There were a dozen or so releases, each loaded with scenarios for doing crime.
