I value the opinions of more experienced gamers. Smile

Maybe you’ve already posted this somewhere, but, do you have a list of favorite modules?

I don't.

Although I own them, I haven't played many of the published adventures. They look like a lot of fun. In the past, I've created the adventures that my group played from scratch.

But, I've got nothing against the published adventures. As I said, they look like a lot of fun. I'd play one in a heartbeat if I were so inclined.

Strike Force: Shantipole - This is another classic. I've ran this 5 times. I love it.

I am surprised to not find much discussion about this adventure on this forum. Has anyone else ever ran this or even played it? The first appearance of the Verpine species and Roche Asteroid Field? Commander Ackbar before his promotion to admiral? Saving the two-man B-wing prototype? Disabling an escort frigate? Star Wars Rebels even pillaged this adventure for an episode!

I ran a truncated version of it for a variety of reasons. The group had to get the prototype earlier in the story because reasons, and had to also extract the families of Verpine engineers as well as the engineers themselves.

Problem is, they had a TIE Scout, so they were also flying with a escape pod attached to it to extend the life support capabilities enough for all those people. Still was not a comfortable trip through a secret smuggler's route in the system, dodging TIEs everywhere.

I used the "Mission to Lianna" as a sourcebook for an adventure on my own, leaving out most of the plot, and just using the locations and some of the characters. Worked out pretty well, one funny thing is they did some stuff in the opposite order of the original adventure, so when they snuck into a corporate building they always ended up behind all the security cameras and turrets placed to make breaking in difficult.

I'd like to use more of the published adventures, but they're mostly aimed at Rebel characters, and I'm running more of a fringe/tramp freighter campaign at the moment.

Otherspace. The concept always fascinates me and our group enjoyed it so much the players actually asked to go back, so we engineered a hyperdrive "malfunction" and returned to explore and fight the Charon.

You've seen this right? I haven't read it through but it doesn't seem like it was ever quite completed. Might still be good for some "Otherspace" ideas.

Yes, I discovered that little gem a while back when downloading all the pit files. We never fought the Charon queen so that could be a good reason to get our original group back together.
