Guir’s claim to fame in the region is its rich asteroid belts, and associated industrial output. Though the world isn’t classified as “industrial”, Guir’s industries are well known for their output, and the system sees significant traffic, particularly local traffic, which ferries ores and minerals to Guir’s refineries and factories.

Guir is also known for its sealed vehicle manufacturing capabilities, and is regarded as one of the better producers in the region. It also builds small craft, particularly modular small craft, which are of good, if not excellent, quality. These designs are used extensively in the system’s mining activities, and are a favorite with local companies.

While Guir’s two inner planetoid belts are being heavily exploited, the belt further out (in orbit 7) is another matter. Until recent years this collection of rocks was believed to be almost worthless, and was ignored by the larger concerns. The last several years, independent miners have slowly drifted to this belt, and have made some discoveries. While these discoveries aren’t comparable to the other belts in the system, they have produced enough to keep the independents operating. Most working here believe a major discovery is “just around the corner”. If such a find is made, it is certain the major companies will take notice.

The iceworld in the system’s 8th orbit is home to several groups of independent minded folks, people who saw an opportunity to establish their own society, and took the chance. While this has worked out for them, the groups involved haven’t been able to form a cohesive government apparatus. This wouldn’t normally be a problem, as the population is still very low (less than 4000), but there have been discussions on Guir about, “ensuring the independents pay their taxes”. Such talk may just be noise from certain government agencies, but it has certainly spurred discussions amongst that world’s independent groups, and there is talk of forming an actual governing body within the next few years.

A private company, based on Guir, has established a closed research facility on a moon orbiting the system’s furthest planet, a slow-orbiting ocean world. Rumors swirl as to the company’s actual activities, though officially they are, “conducting experiments with high pressure, low temperature equipment”. The frequency of rumors to the contrary, combined with the company’s paranoid concerns over employee activities tied to the project, paint a different story, according to “people concerned with the situation”. Rumors swirl as to the company’s actual intentions.

This is my 51st “System of the Day” entry, using the Traveller5 (T5) rules, from Far Future Enterprises. 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 from1967 to 2008. I make no claim to this world name; I use it only as an homage to a series which heavily influenced me (and, according to legend, Traveller itself).


This system was generated by hand, using a set of dice I have owned for over 30 years, and using the Traveller5 (T5) rules set. Feel free to use this system in your own campaigns. Permission is granted to publish these results, as long as the copyrights of Far Future Enterprises are not violated, and no money is charged for them.


As always, comments and input are appreciated.
