This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I don't think it's worth that much but I'd go for Alien Legion, oh, and Dreadstar.

Zardoz for $100, then spend the remaining $99,900 on coke and whores.

On a more serious note Fallout would be pretty cool.

I've love to see a tabletop version.  It's a shame the d20 version was canceled way back.  The free version floating around is just a tad too clunky.
“In a way, the Lands of Dream are far more brutal than the worlds of most mainstream games. All of the games set there have a bittersweetness that I find much harder to take than the ridiculous adolescent posturing of so-called 'grittily realistic' games. So maybe one reason I like them as a setting is because they are far more like the real world: colourful, crazy, full of strange creatures and people, eternal and yet changing, deeply beautiful and sometimes profoundly bitter.”

You can also come up with something that is not only original and creative and artistic, but also maybe even decent, or moral if I can use words like that, or something that's like basically good -Lester Bangs

Just for the pleasure: Either "The Middleman" or "Hyperion/Endymion".

With a commercial intent... The "Stargate" universe could be developed well beyond the boundaries of the TV show ("Well, Major Carter... We have established that 'The Color Out of Space' actually came 'out of here'. What now?")
For every idiot who denounces Ayn Rand as "intellectualism" there is an excellent DM who creates a "Bioshock" adventure.

I would buy the rights to Mr. T. He's due for a resurgence in popularity.

Then get a Savage Worlds version out on the market.

Final Fantasy
Halo
Castlevania
Fallout
Bioshock

On a more modestly budgeted note, Malazan Book of the Fallen. I could probably get the license for relatively cheap, and pimp the fuck out of the book.

Bas Lag or Malazan Books of the Fallen. Both are highly popular with built in audiences, derive from RPG campaigns in part and are therefore conceptually easy to reconvert to campaign settings, and both have a lot to do.

The Pernicious Light, or The Wreckers of Sword Island;
A Goblin's Progress, or Of Cannons and Canons;
An Oration on the Dignity of Tash, or On the Elves and Their Lies
