Making Crime Pay in Modern RPGs

This article on the recent Tonbridge heist [1] (a bank robbery worth millions of pounds) offers a fascinating look at what smart criminals do with stolen money — and in the process provides you with loads of tips for handling heists in a modern RPG. “It’s not the robbery that separates the amateur from the professional. It’s the way you deal with the money afterwards.

Update: The site linked above has now made the article pay-only. Sorry about that — I won’t link to them again.

I was really surprised at all the details that they provided — it went way beyond what I think most news reports would have covered.

Sadly, it appears to be a pay-only article now. Do you know of any sites mirroring the content.

Bugger! No, I can’t find anywhere that mirrors it — and it’s not in Google’s cache yet, either. I hate it when papers do that with their online articles.
