MrNexx are you looking for advice on how to run for a bunch of teenagers and preteens? Are you looking for adventure format? Are you looking for an adventure outline? Are you looking for an pre-made adventure you can run?

Below is a link to a file I created and plunked onto DropBox. It is adapted from the pick your own path from the rules. I have run it in about 2 1/2 hours. You could probably do it faster.

Star Wars: Freedom for Edan
Episode I: Sneak Attack

It went pretty well. We had 3 people, one of whom had to leave as the chase started, and so someone else filled in. They grew wary of the wild die, and my dice fair sucked.

Glad to hear it went well.

They grew wary of it, as in they were afraid to roll for fear of getting a 1? Wow, how often did they get a 1?

Not often, actually. However, two of them were early... Entering the compound on a rope, their sniper rolled a 1 and fell on the fence... then fell on the ground, wounded and stunned. Then they were still stealthing through the compound when the infiltrator got a 1 shooting his silenced slugthrower (thus leading to me saying that the silencer had disengaged and the shot rang out).

Truth to be told, I rolled a lot more 1s than they did.

That's a pretty brilliant use of a 1, though. You made it a complication without necessarily making it a failure to hit. Nicely done.

Oh, no, he still failed to hit. His roll was crap, on top of that 1. It was a relatively long-distance shot in the dark, in a skill he was rolling straight dex on.

Some creative/comical (in a way) complications for 1s there. But i can see people becoming wary of it cause 2 straight 1s, netted complications..

In that case, i might have had his gun jam up.. Or the bullet be corroded/under powdered or something so when it went off, or the bullet was a dud so didn't even fire.

And I'm assuming you'd need to clear that obstruction.
