When my roommate was in prison 15 years ago, he held an AD&D 2e game with some of the prisonmates.
Roommate (DM): Okay, so there is a post on almost every wall around the city for able hands to help kill the dragon, what do you want to do?
Player: I just got into this place, I want to find the bank.
DM: Okay, you find the bank, there are two royal guards near the enterance, a few employees and some patrons. One of the employees behind a desk asks you if you want to deposit some gold.
Player: I pull out my gat and rob the bank.
DM: You don’t have a gat!
Player: Well, what do I have?
DM: You have a sword!
Player: A SWARD?! WHAT THE HELL AM I GUNNA DO WITH A SWARD?!
DM: A suggestion, not rob a bank?
Player: Screw that, I rob it anyway.
After a short fight with the two royal guards with three crits, and a daring escape, he succeeded and got away with 675gp.
