Toy is a minor agricultural and ranching world. Though it doesn’t have high production levels, its output easily sells in nearby systems.

For the most part, Toy is an unexplored world. The world has, of course, been surveyed from orbit, and a number of expeditions have been conducted, documenting various life forms. But for the most part, Toy has large regions with no people, and big unknowns.

The rest of the system hasn’t attracted much attention, as the remaining worlds are of little interest for settlers or commercial development. The system’s two gas giants are in very distant orbits. Thus most visiting ships refuel at Toy’s starport. Refueling in the local oceans is prohibited, to protect the world’s pristine environment in its frontier regions.

ADVENTURING OPPORTUNITIES – A small list of potential situations. Each must be fleshed out by the GM.

1. Hunted. A small farming village on the edge of Toy’s settled regions is under attack. It is believed a previously unknown carnivore has migrated into the area, and is attacking livestock, and even the occasional rancher. Local efforts to curb the problem have been unsuccessful, and the locals need outside help to deal with the situation. Players will encounter a representative at the starpprt, looking to hire offworlders with hunting and tracking experience.

2. Fire! The players are in a remote village, making/picking up a delivery, when a fast moving prairie fire sweeps into the region. Everyone has mere moments to react, hoping to escape the onrushing wall of fire. Of course, as is typical for these situations, rescues must be made quickly, and there’s always “that one guy” who refuses to leave…

This is my 71st 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 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.
