Moarus was originally settled for the unique gas mixtures of its harsh atmosphere. In recent decades the industries which once relied on Moarus’ output have begun to synthesize (or replace) them, and Moarus’ industries have been in decline ever since. Nowhere is this more evident than at its starport facilities, where large sections have been sealed off to reduce maintenance needs and prevent accidents. However, it is a simple procedure to obtain hydrogen, and refined fuel is available, and inexpensive.

The belters in the system’s asteroid belts have always maintained their independence from outside rule, and they have formed their own government in recent years, doing so to prevent encroachment by outside mining conglomerates. Representatives to an Assembly are elected/selected by various groups, representing the interests of the involved parties. The number of representatives changes occasionally, with the success or failure of companies, making political bargaining an interesfing spectacle. But this system works for their needs.

One local company has discovered a unique/rare chemical compound, located in the oceans of the world in the system’s 7th orbit. Collecting this chemical is problematic, at best, and the company’s on site technicians are researching the issue. It is hoped a solution can be found, as this would help stimulate the local economy.

This is my 54th hand-generated “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 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.
