Ourelle is a system which always seems to be close to an all-out war. The system’s five governments have various ‘agreements’ in place, in attempts to limit or prevent a full-scale conflict. For now this has succeeded in preventing such a war, but the situation remains unstable. A nearly continuous ‘cold war’ scenario has been the norm for several decades, at times threatening to explode into a full-blown conflict.

Much of the damage has been industrial in nature, and each government’s infrastructure has been mauled at various times. Most of the industries are geared towards war in some capacity, and public luxuries are at a premium. If a true war does occur, the local damage is expected to be severe.

The system’s joint colony (orbit #5) is considered a neutral zone, even though no real treaties have been signed. This world is extremely warm, and at the upper limits of human endurance. This has the expected results on the locals: water is precious, buildings are thick-walled and low-lying. The world has many mineral resources. Surprisingly this tough world has produced few aggressive native species; living here could be pleasant, if it weren’t so hot.

The system’s distant planetoid belt is a completely different story. Out here almost anything goes. “Accidents” are a monthly occurence, and small conflicts with ‘pirates and renegades’, ie rival forces, are frequently reported. The area is best avoided by outsiders.

This is my 38th hand-generated “System of the Day” using the Traveller5 rules. My goal is to publish one random system per day in 2020.
This world’s name was taken from that great scifi book series, The Dumarest Saga, written by E. C. Tubb, and published from 1967 to 2008. I make no claim to the name; I am only using it as an homage to a series which heavily influenced me (and, according to legend, Traveller itself).
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 Feel free to use this system in your own campaigns, but please do not publish them for profit, nor publish without obtaining prior permission.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!
