Was thinking about this at work today.

Are you leaning towards published adventures to save time? Or to get the creative juices flowing? Or to provide a framework/stats/maps etc for a complete adventure? Or?....

I only ask because I was thinking about how Traveller random encounter tables are less about encounters and more about situations.

A few rolls on the random encounters tables in your rules of choice could give you a great set up, a few more reveal a meaningful complication and just a couple more could be the twist to help set up a satisfying end. If you have a subsector rolled up or chosen you can plug in just about anything and suddenly you’ll find yourself as surprised as the player about where things could be/are going.

Of course this means basically writing the adventure yourself which I realize is basically off-topic but if you keep striking out with published material maybe this could be a way to get something going.
