Although I am encouraged enough by today's still-to-be-announced results to say that we'll do another Iron Modder sooner rather than later, over the years I have written down far more topic ideas than I would ever get to. Some were adapted into other themes, some don't seem to lend themselves well to many interpretations, others are just weird and would make people mad if they had to work with them.

******
Misfits From the Start
This was one of the first ones I wrote down and I feel like people could do something interesting with it... but in four hours, probably not so much.
******
Doesn't Anybody Knock In This Town?
For several installments now, this has almost been the theme, but I always relent and put something else in. So I'm giving up and saying this is probably never going to happen. (But with WeiNGINE _iter, I feel like this could really go somewhere...)
******
Too Many Promises / One Promise Too Many / A Promise Unkept
Variations on the theme that eventually became IM4 "A Broken Promise", which went so well we only had two judged entries. Good thing I'm so taken with the idea...
******
The Impulsive Bhaalspawn
For some reason I feel like everyone would disregard this and make it "The Sensuous Bhaalspawn" but that's probably me projecting...
*******
Never Cross a Bhaalspawn
Has potential, but would need time to develop into something special, beyond just "somebody wrongs the PC and the PC kills them."
*******
A Whispered Secret / A Shared Secret
Yes. Something Secret. Obviously I really want to do something with a secret. We get it.
*******
Eyeing Little Elves With Bad Intent
There's still that Aqualung code in the WeiDU readme, right?

"Doesn't anybody knock in this town?" has trouble written all over it. I love it.

I could see some kind of vampire-related, or maybe just cleric-related theme.  Or would that not work in a FR deity setting?  Maybe I'm thinking too much about Stokerisms.

Ah, as in "sign of". Interesting.

With a mind like that, maybe you should think of doing one of these someday. You just might be good at it!

My modding skills are verrrrry rusty, I'm afraid.  I half-considered attempting this one, to be honest, but I'm usually always gone on the weekends, and this one was no exception.  Next time, perhaps.  :)

So do the next one.

I'd love to play another ice mod.

Besides, you did win IM6 so we know you can do it.
