A system agnostic game in the genre of those novels about classism in large Victorian households where there are a truly unreasonable number of servants and the protagonist is somewhere near the bottom of the hierarchy. Infiltrate the household through intrigue or I guess just breaking in, steal their treasure and perhaps reveal the misdeeds of the upper class.

It is not at all historically accurate to Victorian England though and has elements of the supernatural, though you could probably remove them. I think it would work well with Blades in the Dark, or a more generic system.

Content warning: Classism, child labour, emotional abuse including of children, cults, human sacrifice, optionally violence by the player characters. You can age up the children if you prefer, and replace the last two with some other atrocity, but the classism is fairly integral to the themes of the game.
