Then of course there's my desire to run MODELS, my secret-agent game. The RPG Musical remains a dream of mine to actually run (searches of the net so far reveal similar yet different achievements from what I had in mind). And of course, there's always the desire to run more horror games and terrifying one-shot sessions, especially with games like those by John Wick or Wraith the Oblivion in my shelves waiting to be used.
Here are a few other ideas I've been finding myself excited to run:
My partner, Rocky, has recently gotten me hooked to a show called Pillars of the Earth. The show nicely reflects the political machinations and manipulations that happen between the Church and the Nobility during the medieval era. As fictional as the story may be, the show nicely captures the interplay that I loved in games like Vampire the Dark Ages as well as how I tend to approach d20 games. While most appreciate Dungeons and Dragons for the MMO feel it provides, I like using it to have medieval age set gaming sessions for larger groups. And yes, I must admit, as much as I do love Game of Thrones, I'm really liking the interplay of Pillars of the Earth more. I guess I like the pacing of the show a bit more. And the host of characters. Now, with both as great springboards for inspiration, I'd love to get my hands dirty again and run either Vampire the Dark Ages, Mage the Sorceror's Crusade or even d20 again. (Yes, d20, not 4th edition Dungeons and Dragons which really makes me think too much of MMO games).
Serenity - Dr. Who crossover game, wouldn't it be wise then to consider even more games with Dr. Who making an appearance. Whether it be an actual Dr. Who game session, or one which has the Doctor and his friends cameoing in another game, it would be cool to have a chance to run stories that involve time travel the way Dr. Who does it. Maybe this would even make it easier for me to run a Star Trek game for Rocky, since a Dr. Who crossover would be an easy way to explain away the inconsistencies of my Star Trek knowledge.
In many ways the Adventure! system has been a game system I keep trying to run for a chronicle but gets regulated to merely one-shot sessions. So far, I've run around five Adventure!games so far (with the last one, to my recollection, being a game with my best friend Tom and my good friends James and Eman) and I really would love to get a chance to run a long-term chronicle in this some day.
Thundercats so far has, in my opinion, more misses than hits with its new incarnation. Voltron is just sad. Very sad. I think the only real success has been My Little Pony, which frankly I haven't gotten my hands into. Nor do I have any plans of doing so. But what about running them as one-shot games? Wouldn't anyone want to try being Aeon Fluxx in a game? How about a MASK game? Could you imagine what direction I'd take a Silverhawks RPG?
Lastly, and I know Rocky will so be afraid of the day I do push through with this. I want to run an RPG based on this show.

Because, yes, it is "ADVENTURE TIME!"
I know there are people out there working on 8-bit rpgs using this show as a springboard. Or choose-your-own-adventure types of games. But I think one can run a game using Big Eyes, Small Mouth as the system. I wonder if I'd ever get players for this?
