    If you want an “outside the box” Western setting, but don’t really want to go so far down the rabbit hole as Dead Lands does try “The Sixth Gun” by Pinnacle.

      Good one! The Sixth Gun is one of those that we’ve drooled over but never had the chance to play.

    Another interesting take on superheroes is the “misfits” tv series out of uk.

    I love the Magic 2.0 series, it’s a great take on Magic.

    I am a Fan of Eberron as well, but mostly because of DDO, I haven’t had a chance to play a PnP game

      DDO wasn’t something we did a lot of, but the little we did of it was fun. PnP Eberron was/is a nice divergence from the usual fantasy setting. I think a bit too much of a divergence for some.

    If you’ve never done it I cannot recommend Reverse dungeon enough. It just flips the script but it’s completely outside the box for it. You have lousy stats lousy armor and these mean adventurers come into your home and kill you because of what some other goblins did. I tried to run it three different times with players pissing and moaning all through the first to times. The third group that finally embraced the idea had a blast. One of the best moments was after finally getting one of the invading adventurer’s down the cleric goes over and heals him. One player decried can he just do that so easy. To which another player chimed in with “to be fair we’ve been doing it that way for about a decade now”. I didn’t even have to say a word it was greatness. Anyway love the show keep up the good work.
