Criminals wanted in 5e
I would like to play a game where all PCs were criminals, tasked with carrying out a series of jobs such as burglaries, etc. Good opportunity to rob temples, evade guards, escape from the Law and so on. PCs wouldn’t necessarily all have to be Rogues, but it might help. Maybe we’re part of a gang or guild, or freelancers...

Pref in 5e.

Any GMs interested in taking this on?

Throwing my support/interest behind this idea as well.  Sounds like a lot of fun.

I saw this yesterday and gave it a night of thought.

Would you consider a gang of young Urchins recently formed by an up and coming Fagin?

I have some ideas for 0 level rules to cover the first 100 experience, although they only work for humans. SO: a Human only group of Orphans in the big city lead.

Drawbacks, in addition to the Human limitation, would be no druids, rangers, clerics, or paladins, wizards, and probably not any warlocks (druids and rangers aren't urban, and the others wouldn't be urchins, they'd have mentors. Warlocks are a different issue)...although I can make Barbarians work in the city.

Sounds good. Definitely interested.

Class limits sound realistic and fit in with my original idea.

Ok, let me set up some basics and post a web page. Later today, I hope.

OK, game is set up enough for the basics.

link to another game

I'm making this up as I go along, and, while I have a plot hook or two to start,  it's going to be semi sandbox until I get a little more work put in. So you know.

I'll hold off a day or so before posting an ad to give folks here first refusal.

Thanks. I had a look and it wasn’t the right game for me. I hope it goes well though.

How about this; everyone makes up a 1st level thief type, no multi-classing until after the characters have reached 3rd level with GM approval. Open multi-classing after characters have reached 5th level (w/o GM approval). The characters will begin as members of the same group (gang, clique, club, crew, etc. call it what you will) from a poor district in a larger city that I will create specifically for the campaign to run/begin in.

Characters will be poor, starting with only 30gp worth of gear and place where they can all hangout (room at a cheap inn, an abandoned warehouse, a spot on the docks, etc.), a dagger, and a bad attitude.

all stats start as 14, you can lower a stat to raise another on a 1 to 1 basis, but no stat can be lowered below and 8 and racial maximums are the limit to raising stats.

so, you could could lower a Wisdom of 14 down to 10 and four points to use to raise your Dexterity and Charisma to 16 for example.

If you are interested let me know.
