Starbound at this point is really a background setting -- it is the
stage on which stories are told, rather than a scenario for adventure
in itself. Just to toss out some possibilities:
- "First Contact"
- I have intentionally left aliens out of the basic background,
because I feel that this tends to trivialize them. If aliens are
going to appear, contacting them should be a major aspect of the
campaign. I may develop some notes on potential alien types, but
that will be later.
- "Aliens from Earth"
- Since it is nearly 11,000 years on Earth since the explorers
left, there could be extremely "alien" beings originating from
Earth. With advances since they left, the "aliens" might catch
up to the explorers.
- "Police Work"
- At the heart of the Starbound expedition is maintaining the
community. Separated from the rest of humanity by both time and
space, they need to deal with problems very carefully. Criminal
investigations could easily balloon into problems vital to their
