Back in April, I posted a link to the the Talislanta website. Since then, the site has grown (just a bit!) and if you're a fan of weird high fantasy, take a look at recent developments. Some items may be of particular interest to those looking for something a bit more unusual. Both the artwork and the cartography were something that Talislanta were strong on. Talislanta always managed a combination of quirky (like this list of in-game collectible items) and dramatic that would be well-suited to some Old School Renaissance tinkering. Even if the setting isn't for you, there's a plethora of assets and ideas for the looting complete with d20/OGL conversions for those Pathfinder addicts to remix. If you want an example of how rich this setting is, take a look at The Piazza, a world-building forum for RPGs which has it's own Talislanta sub-forum where a developer or two are known to haunt. Talislanta has been described as one of the most under-rated RPGs and certainly from the materials I've seen, there is excellent gaming material ripe for the taking.
