You guys will love it!

Play the "Only War" Beta rules for Imperial Guard members and have everyone be a spoof of a different burned out fictional action movie soldier. Or, better yet, reenact Platoon... IN SPACE!

If you're taking requests, ParanoiaXP, I'd love to hear this.
Wasn't someone talking about running Cthulhu Dark as a serious game?
Places I'd like to hear A Dirty World: Pre-revolution Cuba or 1890s London.

He'll be back in a year, changed and embittered toward the west but back.

Nah, a year can make you pretty bitter towards China.

added a few things to the OP

One note: The main reason I don't run games in new systems is learning time - it takes a lot of mental effort and energy to learn a complex game and explain it to other players, especially if the players are indifferent to the setting like Warhammer 40k in my case.

Shanghi scenario, totally.

I'd be interseted to hear a Rogue Trader as I know nothing about it.

If you thinking about doing WoD, Mage would be cool to see.  I'd lot to see what craziness that could come up.

MaoCT would be nice to hear again as well.  Mr. I'm a published author.

A one-shot based on Kevin Smith's Red State. Maybe A Dirty World? although the mechanics of that game aren't great for outright violence.

Killsplosion: Based on the movie Kill Squad.

Well if you don't run this, who will?

Lady Gaga 3.0

I listened to the Gaga 2.0 AP the other day, that last 20 minutes or so made me think of Greg Costikyan's Violence: The Roleplaying Game of Egregious and Repulsive Bloodshed, which could make for an interesting one-shot AP.  And of course, that got me thinking about some the other Hogshead RPG's from the 90's, like John Tynes' Puppetland.

The Chaosium monograph "Ripples from Carcosa" is also good for a mini-campaign.

I think the Trail of Cthulhu, Reign, and Fear Itself games all sound interesting, but I have been itching to hear a Killsplosion game recorded.

From what I've read and heard, I really like the Trail of Cthulhu system for Investigation compared to regular CoC.

I'll have at least one Killsplosion game up on the site before the end of the month.

From your new show, The Laundry, I want to hear that.

Long time listener, First time poster here,

If you have not played 40k or know any of the lore, then i would probably stay away from Dark Heresy - it relies on all the players knowing about the lore - especially the imperial stuff.

Rogue trader can be great, and I would actually recommend it to people who do not know anything about 40k over experienced 40k players. Judging from how Ross is able to keep a handle on all sorts of reputation stats and factional interaction Rogue Trader would be great to listen to, but it really needs a campaign dedicated to it simply because of the sheer scale of the game.

I only have a very little experience with Black Crusade, but it would probably be the best for a one shot set in the 40k universe, especially for players who don't know the fluff. being able to play a regular sane person in 40k pretty much means you are heretic anyway, and this way you can have not only the overbearing Imperium pressing down on the players, but also the opportunity to make pacts with Daemons for possessed rocket launchers which fire miniature plague demons which can not only blow up tanks but turn anyone hit by the blast into zombies too!

I have three more characters to finish statting up (I have them built, just need to convert the point-buy notes to something understandable) and I could run a short Anima:  Beyond Fantasy arc.

For Anglophiles like myself nothing beats The Laundry. Charles Stross' novels are very good and you still have the BRP system with a few minor tweaks for the Call of Cthulhu ruleset. I think the RPPR crew would enjoy playing through the first scenario, Case LAMBENT WITCH in the Black Bag Jobs scenario book if you aren't going to write up a brand-new one-shot. I certainly enjoyed running my players through it. Getting to play Angleton and a few other characters from the books as NPCs was a lot of fun.

The second scenario is quite good too. Someone loses a laptop, and mayhem ensues ...
