Honestly? I want to run a fantasy adventure, perhaps in the universe of Prince of Thorns or The Dragon's Path. Just some settings with cool touches on standard fantasy tropes.

I am also tired of always doing Warhammer 40k roleplay. I love that setting but it tends to frighten my players into powergaming and backstabbing, and sometimes I just want to tell a more laid back story.

Dark Heresy.

The players are a small group of adepts sent to a monastery on a planet; an all but medieval planet, a planet where the last word from the emperor was fourteen centuries ago and in that time his holy teachings have been interpreted and confused and split into distinct branches of thought.

The players are sent to a monastery on a planet; the monastery with the best ecclesiastical library: although the books are a chinese-whispers version of ecclesiastical teachings, copied and copied again by hand in a demotic gothic.

The players are sent to a monastery on a planet; there for a theological conference.

The players are sent to a monastery on a planet; they discover a fresh grave. The grave of an illuminator who fell from a tower in a hailstorm. Falling through a window that didn't break, and wasn't opened, to a death on the rocks. The abbot is suspicious, monks keep claiming they see the shadow of a body of eight rats caught and tangled and knotted at the tail.

A second body is found, its legs protruding from a boiling pot. Found by a hunchback who speaks in tongues and of his few coherent phrases, one is the motto of a near forgotten heretical sect. The body's thumb is black.

A third body is discovered. A flagellant, an invert, his body hangs in the water of his bath, his thumb and tongue blackened.

Call of Cthulhu.

They died trying to jump a staff car.

They didn't get to discover that the golem was being kept in a concealed room in a building that was occupied by jews. They didn't get to work out which of the rooms the golem was kept in, either by staking out the building for a couple of nights until they had a good idea which of the rooms were suspiciously unlit, or by employing some 'the fascists expect all jews to mark every room a jew uses to be marked by a yellow star in the window' trickery. They didn't get to sneak the golem out by pretending to be undertakers. They didn't get to hustle their coffin almost across the border, only to be caught by patrol. They didn't then get interred in a work camp run by an amateur historian who took an interest in the crumbling mud man they were captured with and offscreen inadvertantly reanimated it. They didn't then get the pleasure of trying to work out who was killing the fascist guards one by one. They didn't then discover that their fellow jews were also being killed (only those who committed small and regular sins, natch) in mysterious circumstances. They didn't then have the chance to hunt a rogue golem of prague through the camp with improvised weaponry, dodging patrols and searchlights. They didn't then get to confront (rather weakly statted) golem and experience a conflict between preserving their heritage, themselves or trying to find a compromise.

Instead, unarmed, they jumped a staff cr.

I want players willing to run a true open world rpg, beginning as peasants. I've been building the setting for 3 years, from the ground up. I began with tectonic plate movements, solar movements, and mass of the planet and went forwards from there. I've got 6 continents with over 2 dozen sapient species, hundreds of monstrous and mundane species, cultural diversity, varying tech progression, trade routes, and various political, magical, and monstrous campaigns of all levels waiting to be run. I'm slowly learning about linguistics so I can create unique, accurate languages for each major species and region. My troupe won't run it because it's too far removed from their standard dungeon crawl and the idea of being in character bothers them.

Commoner quest.

The whole party takes only NPC quests found in the Player's Handbook, like Adept or Warrior. Idea is they live in a huge metropolis, and get caught up in a variety of shenanigans.

I already knew some bros who were interested, but sadly there just isn't enough time to really make it happen.

One player was a secretary in the court. He would brag about meeting the King once, when really the guy just nodded to him as he passed his desk one day. Another was a sailor who worked in the docks, and a third was an ex-city guardsmen that worked as a bouncer in a tavern. They all lived in the same apartment complex, and played cards together on weekends, which is how the first quest got started.

Not the same guy, but if I were running it I'd go with an alternate continuity, just to get away from all the pre-established characters. Sozin and Roku both died on the volcano, the fire nation never attacked the rest of the world, Avatar Katara is currently training with the Fire Sages, Aang having died aged 90-something, that sort of thing. Frees you up to have your own story without interacting with anything but the core of the setting. Might bump into Fire Lord Iroh and his son, or Toph (who would still be Toph), or the Kiyoshi Warriors, or the Dai Lee (still the secret police of the Earth Kingdom, but not supressing news of the war anymore), but you don't have to use any of them. They might not be all that important.

Oh, and if I could play anything, I'd play Rogue Trader. I'd be the captain, I'd have my stupid fast Orion clipper, and I'd Kirk my way across the Expanse. Probably never going to happen.

A hybrid game set in a near future world/MMORPG. Either nWoD or some rules light story system for real world. 4E for the fantasy MMO. Something mysterious is happening in the game which is having effects in the real world. Real life investigation has themes of hidden conspiracies that the players can't entirely uncover or understand. Through plot PCs gain completely broken abilities or spells that only work during server malfunctions.

Dungeon Survival
A good old fashioned dungeon crawl. Players better be making their own maps, keeping track of provisions for food, water, fuel and treasure. Some sections are massively over level requiring back tracking and figuring out ways around the danger. Logistics of taking treasure with them or hiding it at a place to eventual return to. Occasionally bump into other parties of adventurers who may be potential allies or willing to kill the party for their treasure. Not sure on the system. Can't have too many cantrips or half the challenge disappears.

Space. Anything space, I don't care if it was Star Wars or Rogue Trader or Save Worlds, any system with space ships and robots and aliens.

I want to run a game where the party finds a shitty space ship and eventually repair and upgrade it until they become a one-ship army in space. Do they hollow out an asteroid and become smugglers? Pirates? Help out the Alliance?

Whatever they wanted to do, I would love to lead a group into a space adventure.

I've always wanted to run a game based on 80s and 90s beat-em-ups. I'd have to homebrew up a system to run it and none of my friends share my nearly religious veneration for Double Dragon and Streets of Rage 2, so nobody I know would actually want to play it even if I made it exist. Lame.

I played a game set right after Aang disappeared and the fire nation war had just begun. Was a lot of fun since you can blend in any type of character you want into the story. Plus we had a flashback arc set during Kiyoshi times with really high level heroic characters. This was my GMs homebrew d20 variant so the flashback was a great way to use the story of the macguffin we were seeking as a playtest for higher level characters.

A game with the BBG is a somewhat addled but good hearted lich is accidentally ruining the world.

Zombie or two fell in a stream and ruined a water supply, evil necromancers worshiping him for no reason, wildlife going crazy after eating undead flesh, and eventually reality warping due to a god becoming angry that a mortal is living too long/becoming too powerful.

I've never played any tabletop game, but I've spent waaaaaay too many hours trying to make an interesting campaign with lots of scenarios.

i've made rules for a 2-4 player campaign, set in 1812-13 in poland/russia. Players would play as french dragoons (armed with a carbine and sabre), and would be able to pretty much do as they please. obviously they would be assigned tasks like foraging and picket duty, but during battle they would have to fight, or flank/harry enemy flanks.
rules involve many tables of random events, rules for drunkeness and extreme cold/exhaustion/starvation.
the game is called DRAGOON

You want to figure out exactly how pay your maintenance crews and pilots need per month?
Battletech has rules for that.
You want to figure out how hard it is to source parts, how expensive they'll be, and how long it'll take to repair your machines once you have them?
Battletech has rules for that.
You want to fight on a volcano in the middle of a snowstorm with little to no gravity and a toxic atmosphere?
Battletech has rules for that.

Pretty much. His main "craziness" is thinking undead are still alive, and considers the PCs to be murderers.

Oh, and refers to himself in third person and has an imaginary friend who he thinks is himself.

"Oh, ignore Krat, he's old and ugly. Hey, I'm talking to you! HEY, LOOK AT ME! Can't you see me!? WHY CAN'T YOU SEE ME, PLEASE LOOK! Wait, what are you holding? Was that Abel's sword? Why do you have his sword, where is he? What'd you do to him! He was my friend!"

I want to run a game focused on high-level diplomacy and grand strategy that spans over multiple generations, with the PCs playing rulers, those character's children, and so forth.

It would be a little adversarial as PCs would be able to politik against or invade each other.

I've been doing this recently with a new group. We're normal people with normal skills, justified by our individual interests and employment/education. No one expects us to be able to accomplish anything, so they don't prepare much to stop us (yet). We struggle to maintain our humanity while doing increasingly dangerous/immoral things in the name of self defense or the defense of others. I'm playing a journalism student who has an interest in parkour. The other PCs are a neopagan psychiatric doctor, a slightly corrupt medical nurse, an enforcer for MS-13, and an art thief. This coming sunday we'll be trying to prevent someone from opening a portal to hell. The others are going in on the ground. Also in attendance are the entire population of the Psych nurse's mental hospital and a three vans of Homeland Security personnel that showed suspiciously quickly. Admittedly we set off a pipebomb in a shed out back, but still. I wasn't in on making the plan, so I'm not actually sure why we did that. I have a stolen hunting rifle with a whole three rounds and a clear view of the suspected ritual sight from an elevated position, and my job is to cap whoever seems to be leading the ritual. I'll know him by his mask and unique obsidian blade knife. My character has never killed anyone before and is sweating bullets fast enough to feed a chain gun.

I have literally never had this much fun with the WoD setting before.

Any complete campaign that I designed.

I mean...god damnit. Everyone is having a good time. They all WANT to play, and even go out of their way to make it happen. But somewhere along the line the world goes out of its way to split campaign groups up.
