The Beta Adventures: From sessions 0 to session 3 (4 sessions), covering all the adventures in the beta game going over the list of adversaries, locations, equipment and vehicles. While each could be covered in a more detailed post, to avoid to many spoilers I have kept some of it at a high level. Each of these adventures could have been run over multiple sessions, each episode in the book has enough detail to be expanded and made special, though at the time I was looking to use the adventures as a launch pad for an ongoing story instead of being the ongoing story. Next time I run these adventures that is how I plan to do so, see if I can get one or more session from each episode in the adventure.
- EotE – Crates of Krayts (2019-01-08)
- AoR – Operation: Shell Game (2019-01-08)
- FD – Lost Knowledge (2019-08-01)
The Core Rulebook Adventures: Sessions 3 to 6 (3 sessions total). Each of the core rule books also has an adventure that can be run with the characters, so I then continued the campaign with the core rule adventures. This is also a record for my players of where they went and who they interacted with. This was also the last set of adventure so to have a single session per adventure.
- EotE – Trouble Brewing (2019-01-15)
- AoR – Perlemian Haul (2019-01-15)
- FD – Lessons from the Past (2019-01-15)
The Game Master Kit Adventures: Sessions 7 to 12 (6 sessions total). Each of the Game Master Kits have a screen and an adventure, the screens are technically identical. The main difference is the lovely artwork on the player side, and the weapon chart on the inside, everything else appears the same.

- AoR – Dead in the Water (2019-01-22) – Fighting in Squads and Squadrons
