- I need to start on those actual play reports!
- My posts about Kult aren't exactly my most widely-read material, but I think there's some stuff in Kult that might be useful in Lamentations of the Flame Princess, so I want to explore that possible crossover.
- I should REALLY finish reading The Hell House Beckons and get around to reviewing it. My first impressions are very positive.
- For some reason I got bored back in February and wrote on a sticky note a list of D&D editions/versions in the order of what I found most-to-least interesting. I looked at it again today and realized that order has changed a lot in just two months or so. That may be some food for thought.
- Related to Number 2 above, I've been having an internal debate over whether or not Kult counts as cosmic horror. A lot of people seem to see it as the exact opposite of cosmic horror, but I can see arguments both for and against that claim. Does this kind of nitpicky genre debate interest anybody besides me?
- I have some more NPC ideas that might benefit from a write-up, like what I did with Joop van Ooms and Ibofuris Onaxix. There's a dwarf inventer named Ori, a wizard/sculptor named Klavis Garavone, and a cabal of warlocks that could use some fleshing out.
- Two words: Alderson disk.
- Maybe I'm just hitting the Lotus Powder a bit too much, but is it just me, or does Lamentations of the Flame Princess seem to have a fascination with cloning, copying, imitating, and replacing people?
- I think I tinker with the classes in LotFP to an obsessive degree. I guess I might as well share some of what I've come up with. Worst case scenario, people can at least enjoy laughing at my amateur attempts at game design.
- Last year, I read the Gormenghast trilogy by Mervyn Peake. I think there's some pretty gameable stuff in there.
- I wonder if you could use The Ghost House Guide to Ghosts as a Monster Manual?
- Big Trouble in Little China is a great D&D movie.
- Arguably, so is Conquest. (Although I suspect a lot of people would say it isn't a good anything. I disagree, but I don't blame anybody if they feel that way.)
- For the most part, I actually like the Cleric class in LotFP, which perhaps puts me in a minority. I'd like to talk about the things that I think the Cleric class and spell list do well.
- I want to do a read-through of Carcosa like the one I did of the Holmes Basic D&D rulebook.
- Ditto B1 In Search of the Unknown.
- Ditto B2 The Keep on the Borderland.
- Ditto the two B/X D&D rulebooks.
- Ever since I read The House on the Borderland, I've had this cool idea in the back of my mind: What if I combined The House on the Borderland with The Keep on the Borderland? (I haven't thought of a clever title yet.) I might use some stuff from this post by Zak S. as inspiration.
- I have an idea for a dungeon made of sugar I ought to get to work on. "Death Frosting Doom," if you will. If I ever get off my ass and make it, maybe I could make it a free (or "pay what you want") product on DriveThruRPG or Lulu or something.
- To complement my list of "official and semi-official" LotFP classes (in print and PDF), I should make a list of classes from blogs and other online sources. It's definitely not going to be a complete list, but I can at least gather links to a bunch of them.

UPDATED ON OCTOBER 1, 2016
Stuff that was on the list but that I covered since writing this post:
- I just obtained a copy of the Holmes Basic D&D rules. The book is awesome, and I want to talk about it. DONE!
- I have this theory about how the Fighter/Mage/Other Class trio has a sort of universal appeal for people who like fantasy games that use character classes. I don't know if it holds water, but I'd like to develop it a bit. DID IT.
- Am I the only one who struggles with figuring out how the appraisal of treasure by PCs should work? Especially with magic items? TALKED ABOUT IT HERE.
- This might be strange, but I have an urge to stat up a certain annoying enemy from an old, arguably crappy video game called Dark Castle. I think it might be an amusing take on the goblin/kobold archetype. I just really like repurposing old video game stuff for old-school D&D stuff. THERE IT IS.
