Kuldip is a small, cold world, the third satellite of a fairly large gas giant which lies beyond the primary star’s habitable zone. The low gravity and cold climate have combined to keep the world’s population from growing beyond current levels (around 27 million), and it has remained steady for over a century.

There are six local governments here, each with approximately equivalent populations and technological capability. Though there have been wars in the past, the world has been peaceful for several years, and all indications are it will remain so for the near future.

Kuldip’s economy is based around local needs, as the world produces few items which are desired goods in other systems, though there are some local foodstuffs and cold weather spices which are desired by small groups of gourmands.

Kuldip maintains a small starport, capable of basic repairs using technology imported from nearby systems. Each of the world’s six governments maintains a small local landing field, to facilitate rapid transfer of cargoes and passengers to the starport.

The rest of this system is unoccupied, and of little potential commercial value at present. Only one other body is occupied, that being the last moon orbiting Kuldip’s gas giant. This is a group of independent miners, mining small deposits of ores, and some ice. In recent months an offworld mining consortium has begun putting pressure on local miners to either, “sign with us, or move on”. There is some speculation as to why this has been occuring, as no mineral finds of significance have been reported, and there has been no increase in mining activity in the region.

This is my 50th 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 Feel free to use this system in your own campaigns, but please do not publish them for profit, nor publish without obtaining prior permission.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!
