System of the Day #2 – Granuter

This is my second hand-generated “System of the Day” using the Traveller5 rules. My goal is to publish one random system per day in 2020. All die rolls are made with a set of dice I have owned for over 30 years.

Granuter is a hellishly frozen world, lying well beyond its primary star’s habitable zone. While it lacks appeal for settlement, it compensates with mineral wealth.

The owning/controlling corporation has been exploiting Granuter for some time. However good workers are difficult to hire due to the extreme working conditions. The pay is excellent, probably best in the region, but worker injuries and fatalities are very high. Thus the corporation does what it can to improve safety and working conditions. It has even gone as far as providing all-expenses paid vacations to nearby worlds – an expensive bonus, but considered well worth the cost – to increase employee happiness and productivity. Robotic equipment has been used in the past, with little success; local conditions are too harsh.

Recently the system has been subjected to pirate raids and outright attacks. The corporation thus maintains a decent level of protective forces and ships in system.

A corporate controlled station is maintained in the planetoid belt in orbit 3. This is the most accessible belt for survey and mining teams, as well as potential pirates or raiders, and a patrol force is based here. The spaceport is capable of minor repairs and upkeep.


This system was generated by hand, using the Traveller5 rules. Feel free to use them in your own campaigns, but please do not publish them for profit, nor without obtaining prior permission. Thank you!
