System of the Day #9 – Camollard

This is my ninth hand-generated “System of the Day” using the Traveller5 rules. My goal is to publish one random system per day in 2020.

Camollard is a fairly typical backwater system. Camollard itself has a breathable atmosphere, but is an uninviting world, as it orbits the primary star outside its habitable zone. When combined with the world’s lack of water, Camollard is an unappealing world.

The world’s residents make a living by farming (when the season allows), ranching, some scratch mining for minerals, and sales of furs, harvested by local hunters and ranchers. The meat from several of these animals is also smoked, and is a popular item on nearby worlds. Although water may be scarce on the surface, there is plenty of native and imported wildlife, some of which can be quite dangerous.

For the most part, the residents of Camollard are suspicious of offworlders. They are also known to use an abstract symbolization, which can make navigating around the world “somewhat interesting”. Visitors should exercise caution when travelling away from the main areas.

The remainder of the system is rarely visited. Even the distant, lone asteroid belt is rarely visited by belters, even though rumors continue to circulate, claiming readings of large rare earth element deposits. The belt is considered too distant and sparse, with no local support, to be worth the effort. The Far Companion star holds a pair of iceball planets, and hasn’t been visited in years, as there is nothing of value there.

Note: The two orbits (5 and 13) after the Far Companion in orbit 16 are the two planets for this companion star. The formating isn’t being maintained for some reason, so it’s not as obvious as it should be.

Astute readers of science fiction may recognize this system name, and rightly so. This name was unashamedly borrowed from a great series which Heavily influenced the Traveller RPG – The Dumarest Saga, written by E. C. Tubb from 1967 to 2008.
I make no claim to this name; I am only using it for this home brew setting.

This system was generated by hand with a set of dice I have owned for over 30 years. using the Traveller5 rules. Feel free to use this system in your own campaigns, but please do not publish them for profit, nor publish without obtaining prior permission. Thank you!

As always, comments and input are appreciated. Keep on Travelling!
