Favourite Thing You Never Get to Use

So considering I don't have a tabletop group anymore, and only really play games on this forum, a long period of collecting D&D splatbooks and "expansions" is only as good as the resources available to whoever is DMing. As such I always have ideas that I never get a chance to use, and I was curious if anyone else has the same.

Plus I don't think I've ever really used the Survey forum, and I want to show it some love.

Some things I have yet to, put probably will never get to use. My list is 3.5e only, though I'm sure there's stuff in other systems I want to mind's on D&D presently.
  • Factotums - This Dungeonscape base class is the epitome of jack of all trades, and something I'm really interested in toying with.
  • Anything in Stormwrack - IT'S A BOOK BASED ON PIRATES...KINDA
  • Crusaders - Tome of Battle's tanking class looks like fun, but finding a DM that uses ToB seems difficult.
  • Epic Level Handbook - I know just about everything in the book is broken one way or another, but it would be fun to wield God-like power again.
Anyone else have any ideas they haven't got a chance with yet?

I can think of some

Although I don't have any RP resources myself- no books, expansions, or anything, besides a few Star Wars Saga Ed. pdfs- I would really like to try out a different approach to Star Wars with a more exploration-type theme. Something with cliffs, caves, grappling hooks, and big evil things lurking around corners I'd try playing a scoundrelly treasure hunter myself.

Wouldn't mind doing something with ghosts and spirits in World of Darkness, too!

As for DnD- I've never really gotten a chance to play through a complete (or even reasonably paced) game of DnD, but I do want to try DMing someday. Probably 3.5 or even 4th ed to begin with.

The sylph is in

This cat has numerous resources, not even in the same system.
  • D20 Cyberscape - As the name suggests, modern tech based on virtual reality. Very much not a commonly used thing at all. I still like the book.
  • Witchcraft system - I love this system. Everything is point buy, and no predefined classes. Also a modern system. Can also be a dark conspiracy type setting.
  • Abyssals/Sidereals/Alchemicals - Part of the Exalted Setting. I don't really know how to use it yet, but the 'races' are fascinating.
I also am helping to beta test another system entirely. I can't say I never get to use it (since testing is using it), but I can't wait to use it more

Ah.. So many things.

As far as resources go, I've yet to properly utilize a good deal of my time of magic, or whatever it's called. I really would like to play the most bombastic specialist Mage one day.

As far as ideas not fully implemented yet. I haven't yet constructed one of my no hp D&d variants, (play testing aside). That would be one I'd be particularly fond of attempting. I'm thinking pirates/renaissance era.
