Here are links to a number of online resources for adventures that could be adapted to the World of NAGS.
Ambush at Coyote Canyon is the first winner in the Showdowns & Shootouts adventure writing contest from Hawgleg Publishing. The goal is to provide twelve great scenarios for Gutshot (or another wild west skirmish game, if you must). The adventure is free for the download. Thanks to the Gutshot posse and the Ambush’s author, Al Theobald.
The second in Hawgleg Publishing’s Showdowns & Shootouts series of free western adventures is out: Bullets for Breakfast! by Ross Edwards. It’s designed for Hawgleg’s wonderful Gutshot miniature rules and the characters are easily adaptable to other systems, even Fudge, of course.
Call of Cthulhu Adventures. This corner of the Chaosium website holds a plethora of free adventures for Call of Cthulhu by Dr. Michael C. LaBrossiere.
Cray Canyon Cold Snap is a free adventure from S. John Ross. It is set in the old west with supernatural elements, but easily adaptable to TI.
The Eye of Kilquato by Shane Hensley from Pinnacle. Date: 1939. Setting: South America. Cast: Buck Savage, Virginia Dare, Danny Dare, Doc Gold, and Kator the Ape Boy. Price: Free. How can you go wrong? [This is a link directly to the pdf download. If there is a link on the Great White Games site, I couldn’t find it.]

Great White Games has released a free, 16 page pdf adventure for their Savage Worlds Rippers game: Laughter of Death. Set in 1892 in Transylvania, the adventure features a creepy circus and no doubt has many possibilities for the Terra Incognita game master. N.B.: the link leads directly to the pdf download.
Lester Dent Pulp Paper Master Fiction Plot. He attests: This is a formula, a master plot, for any 6000 word pulp story. It has worked on adventure, detective, western and war-air. It tells exactly where to put everything. It shows definitely just what must happen in each successive thousand words. No yarn of mine written to the formula has yet failed to sell.
Wizards of the Coast has released a new free adventure for d20: No Mans Land. Set in the modern day with a World War I theme, this adventure could easily be adapted for TI.
Pulp Adventure for the Confused. This concise bit of writing advice guides you step-by-step to designing the perfect pulpy adventure.

Shades of Terror is a new, free adventure from Pinnacle, written for their new Savage Worlds rules. A Dungeon crawl a la Lovecraft, according to the author, the adventure is easily adaptable for Terra Incognita. [This is a link directly to the pdf download.

Nag Tech Records
I have included a two sets of NagTech Item records formatted for 3x5 index cards. The first set includes the standard Glitch Table on the reverse, while the second is blank for gadgeteering players or game masters to develop original glitch tables.
Nag Tech Records may be printed on standardsized paper. Twosided reproduction should align the front and backs so that you can cut them out. For the adventurous, I formatted the cards for Avery Standard 5388 3x5 index cards, which come in sheets and can be inserted into laser and ink jet printers and then separated (they are, alas, quite expensive).
These cards are for printing you hand-write the information. I'm working on an editable version.
