This is mostly for new players. Ideas that can get someone interested in Traveller. Make it easier to write up an adventure.
1.) Trade an Exciting Cargo - the basic Trader scenario and what a lot of Traveller is based around.
2.) Explore a New World - the basic Scout scenario
3.) Fulfill a Patron's Mission - you get a job, you do it, then you get paid (hopefully!)
4.) Find an Ancient Artifact or Ruins - and make yourself famous!
5.) Defend an Outpost - a basic Mercenary ticket
6.) Travel to an Interesting World - for various reasons
7.) Fight an Exotic Creature - or maybe not fight one. This could be a Safari scenario
8.) Become a Noble - and be one of the Imperium's elite!
9.) Blast Enemies in Space - don't forget your VACC suit!
10.) Answer a Distress Call - because Free Trader Beowulf is calling
11.) Strike it rich on an Asteroid - and make a ton of Credits
12.) Salvage an Abandoned Starship - and sell the goods on the Black Market
13.) Beating a Space Pirate - but more likely getting beat by a Space Pirate
14) Survive a Mishap - be the mishap a crash, an alien monster, imprisonment, or sabotage.
