>>45057274 A lamp post. We knew it was being used as a dead drop so we waited for for the letter to be dropped off and then we winched it up and tore it out of the ground packed it into the trailer that the semi was hauling and then drove off.
A semi truck from a shipping center in Shadowrun. Party split up and formed plans as small groups. I went in the front with a fake ID saying I was from the regional office and said I was here for inspections. The rouges slipped over a wall and quickly stole some company uniforms from obliging workers. The troll stood nearby in case we needed the muscle. The medic decided waffles were more important.
My main purpose is just to scout and keep eyes out for the rogues. They're working their way to the truck, intending to drive off with it and ram the gate. I would prefer to be a bit more subtle, but can't really give them a better plan. Then security stops me. There's been a bomb threat and they want orders. I gave a quick signal to get the rogues in view, told the guards to follow procedure and get all cargo out of the yard to minimize losses, and ordered "the first driving team I saw" into the truck we had tagged. I high tailed it after them and later found out Waffle Medic had made the call without consulting anyone. That was a fun group.
>>45059087 Despite the fact that the initial allure of the game was "wizard mob bosses in the 1920s" no one in our party actually was a magic user so we didn't know how to open up the secret compartment and we couldn't wait around to cut it open and get the letter because we didn't want to get killed by magical mafia mooks.
>>45058919 For the sun, that one is a whole lot less impressive in context, since we didn't actually end up stealing THE sun. Party thief bragged he could steal anything (or rather the GM said that word of his feats had gotten around), so someone challenged him to steal the sun, betting him 'so and so' amount of gold that he couldn't do it. So he stole the sun (model) from a local observatory, and won the bet. Much more interesting when the story is simply 'we stole the sun', as opposed to 'we won a bet to steal the sun by using a loophole'.
I once convinced my bodyguard to steal a Warscythe right out of the hands of a Necron Lord surrounded by a platoon of Necron soldiers. He lost his only remaining arm trying to get it. He actually got right in the metal bastard's face but failed the strength check to rip it out of his hands. He lost a limb but won my respect and a promotion. Does that count?
We were playing We Didn't Playtest This Game, with 'chaos' deck, wherein the entire deck is split for each player. And instead of losing the game when you 'lose the game', you have to discard a card, only losing the game when you run out of cards.
The goal of a Chaos round is to keep the most cards possible, and surviving long enough to knock everyone else out.
During play, one of the 'taboo' cards were played. Any time you state a word on the list of words you can't say (in this case Me, I, or Myself), you lose the entire game. Which in this chaos mode, meant that you instead only lose a card.
Another one of the players kept tormenting me with various attack cards, and they were currently on top, with so many cards they couldn't actually hold them all. So I decided to get back at them in the worst way possible.
When my turn went around, I held up the game by talking. What did I say? Well, I simply started saying "'I' lose a card." and discarding. Over and over and over.
They asked if I was quitting. I said 'I' was not (and discarded a card, of course). Then, at the end, I had only one card left. Mad Tea Party. It allows you to swap hands and seats with anyone else in the game.
So I played it. I switched with my nemesis, they sat down, and immediately had no cards whatsoever. And lost.
I didn't win the game, but at least they didn't either.
Okay, now I've gotten to thinking: could Carmen Sandiego actually steal the Emperor's body from His Golden Throne? Or pilfer the Golden Throne and leave Him behind to finally die? Or even take both the Emperor and the Throne?
>>45057274 In a M&M campaign ew had going on for quite a long time, there was this time when some aliens wanted to attack the Earth. We had a magician with the ritualist feature so we made him prepare a ritual for the biggest Dimensional Pocket he could cast. Long story short, we stole the planet until the aliens got away.

Snuck into the castle keep and did a heart transplant on him. You know how Briar Hearts on Skyrim work right? Like that only we sealed up his chest and he was none the wiser. Actually the false heart we gave him improved his lifespan and strength for decades.
So I stolen this green rock from an drow's cave, the rock didn't do anything it was just a green rock but where I took it from matter. The rock was a center piece in the noble drow's garden and this guy was a dick to us so I wanted to be a dick to him. He had placed warrior gardeners all over the garden and I was no theft so they saw me right away when I grab the rock. They drew their swords, I kicked over an cairn, they charged and my party and I started running. We got out of the cave with minor cuts, I lost my leadership, and drow started hunting us throughout the rest of that game. But it was worth it because that drow never got us back.
I broke into a palace and swapped a fake artefact with the real artefact, so that the noble who had hired someone else to steal the artefact, thinking it was the real artefact, would then do a trade for the real artefact, believing he was trading a fake for the real artefact, when he was in fact handing over the real artefact and getting the fake.
This is all because we knew he had the resources to smuggle the artefact out of the city when we were under the eyes of the local constabulary and secret police because said noble wanted to prevent us from stealing it in the first place.
Aside from having to kill this one lass who tried to double cross us, it went perfectly.
A few weeks back in HtV we stole a tank from a seemingly-abandoned quarantine zone. Drove it all the way back to headquarters, left a trail of crushed destruction so shameless that a new character's introduction called back to it and used it as a travel waypoint/landmark.
Shockingly, we still haven't been caught despite this.
>>45057274 In Mordheim my Hired Sword thief stole an Opulent Coach more than once, resulting in an obscene amount of Gold Crowns for my Warband. We houseruled that was no longer okay in later campaigns.
>>45082529 Suddenly, Carmen Sandiego becomes the Imperium's greatest hero (greater even than Ciaphas Cain and the Emperor Himself) by stealing Chaos itself, leaving it locked in a safe, and then dumping the safe into a black hole..
>>45057274 I once failed a pickpocket check and instead of stealing a very important pocketbook I ended up stealing the key to said pocketbook's lock. I never fucking got to use it for the entire campaign because the fucking wizard just magicked the lock open later when we just beat the shit outta the guy for the book.

>>45085395 Well, she was a warrior princess, so naturally I thought she would be tough. She objected to us stealing her ship (and her would-be PC husband) and was going to attack us while we were making our escape. I preemptively hit her with a spell and she died immediately. The warrior princess wasn't nearly as tough as I thought she would be.
For a special Australia day session I was running I tasked my players with stealing the still-beating heart of Steve Irwin implaed on a stingray tail. It was being used by a smuggler to aquire rare and dangerous wildlife which he sold on the black market. Australian government wanted it back.
>>45057274 my party stole an adult black dragon. Yeah, the whole thing. They had to figure out how to move it since it was too big and heavy, and settled on air walk+control winds, so the party barb that could drag the dragon was blown to where the fuck they needed to be.
>>45089908 Looks like Carmen has learned from these posts: >>45065151, >>45065236, and >>45065265. We can now expect Carmen Sandiego to become a sexy, human thief version of Pun-Pun (assuming she wasn't before).
