While I really enjoyed S.O.S. and intend on buying the LTS advebtures (just bought 4 LAW modules) I was a little confused at the "Characters" section and the "Time" section.
Characters:Players start with four beginning characters, each with $400, which is about one work week of unskilled labor. In addition to skills of choice, every character is literate and has swimming+1. Time:Only record the passage of time while the party is in transit or overnighting. A party can visit three locations per day (morning, afternoon, evening), though it takes an entire day to travel from island to island. A party must camp for the night following encounters at their last location of the day. Exploring different rooms or buildings of a complex does not use up time.
Those sections give the impression that there was going to be some planetary exploration, but I didn't see the opportunity for any of that. Not sure if I missed something, but it doesn't look like it when I go over the module. What happened to island hopping and swimming?
Having said that I did enjoy the adventure inside the ruined ship. I just expected something a little different based on the setup. And I was all set to record time on some index cards I had set up, but never needed!
