There are so many games, and so little time. I need a way to organize my desires as to what to play next, so this geeklist is it. In order of most desired to play to least, but at a minimum I want to play them all.

EDIT: I've transitioned this to be about campaigns I want to run, which lets me cut out one-shot stuff into a new list.

This one is old by indie RPG standards, but I feel like the one campaign I had of it back in the day wasn't enough.

Another one I backed that looks fun.

Now that 2nd edition has arrived, some of the extra books for this look even more interesting, particularly Generation Ship.

I have a strong desire to bring this to the table again, but need the right theme/setting to do so. I think it would need to be something that twists the Class/Race distinction on its head, for example...

* Dwarves/Elves/Orcs as main focus. All humans would just be types of humans, like "Northern Human".
* Space Opera

OOOHHH, maybe this would work for Shadowrun!

I love this setting so much, I ran The Kerberos Club (Fate Edition) in a very fun campaign.

I've turned aside from Fate Core though. If I ran it again, I guess it would be either The Kerberos Club (Savage Worlds) or The Kerberos Club (Wild Talents). OR, I could use Cortex Prime, or Worlds in Peril. That's an intriguing thought...

This still holds a place in my heart. Could I run it again as is? Probably not. But a hack like I did for Werewolf? Maybe.

Another one that would need exactly the right group of players that were really into the company management aspects of this game and its crunchiness.

I have a hankering for this, but not a strong one.The more I think about this, the more I would love a chance to run another campaign of this in the Cornwall setting I used for my last campaign. It would be neat to see how things turn out with a totally different set of players and characters. And also, maximize the return on my prep investment.

EDIT: every time I get a strong urge for this, I read the rules and remember just how overly complicated they are compared to what they need to be. And I set it aside again. But it stays on the list.

I have the germ of an idea in my head for an alternative "What if?" game where the Soviet Union won the Cold War early, and therefore the heroes exist in a communist paradigm.

I have another idea for a Mad Scientist war across the Marvel Universe, types like the Leader, MODOK, the Mad Thinker, Red Ghost, etc. all getting up to all kinds of mischief against each others and the heroes have to stop it.

I have a third idea of playing a kind of Marvel 2099 what if, where the players all play future "versions" of Marvel heroes.

I have fourth idea, to do a kind of Marvel Noir thing, with 1920's pulpy versions of heroes.

I have a fifth idea, to do a very spy-themed SHIELD game, maybe a Secret Avengers style thing. That might work well with my first idea.

I have a lot of ideas. None of them are in a state where I think I would want to do it immediately, and I am a little burned out on MHP. But it is on the stove top, cooking.
