This is a jewel heist caper, set in London in 1964. It’s a world of charming chameleons, gentlemen burglars, bored socialites, loves-his-mum gangsters, career burglars and girls with pluck; of opportunities to set yourself up for life or to go down for 5-10 years. Can your crew work together to steal the diamond?
I’m aiming for something light, like the Italian Job (Michael Caine version), The Thomas Crown Affair (either version) or Ocean’s 11 (Clooney version). So for instance, you may have access to “shooters” but nobody should die. Not if the plan works anyway.
To be open, I’ve not narrated before, I’ve not used a starter world and I’m planning on doing this on the fly, without the aid of much prepared plot. I’ve written quite a lot of text that I’m pretty sure I’ll need, but importantly I’m planning on following your lead on what the next scene is and what your objective for it is. Your characters will need to do lots of planning, preparation, purchasing, pilfering and casing the joint before you’re ready to attempt the job itself.
I suggest you go for a wide range of the archetypes from these sorts of films, including a mix of genders and social classes, to try to make sure you can handle anything I throw at you. Feel free to write new cards though – these are suggestions only.
Up for this? It’s a bit experimental, but I think it’s got to be tried!
