Byota is a minor world in a resource-rich system. It orbits a fairly small gas giant in the system’s habitable zone. Although the world is small, the high iron content in the planetary crust allows for a higher than expected gravitational pull, giving Byota half a G of gravity.

Byota’s atmosphere is highly tainted with iron; residents and visitors must wear full face filters to keep iron particles out of their lungs and eyes, as long term exposure can result in increased cancer risks, along with other assorted health issues.

This taint is a blessing in disguise, however. A regional mining company has been conducting a series of experiments regarding extracting the iron from the world’s atmosphere. While some few scientists theorize this could alter the world’s atmospheric composition over time, the reality this is a highly unlikely occurrence, as there is far too much iron in the atmosphere for such techniques to make a lasting impact.  However, if some of these techniques prove to be of use, it may easily prove to be a more cost effective technique than traditional mining.

NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.
ADVENTURING OPPORTUNITIES – A small list of potential situations. Each must be fleshed out by the GM.

This is my 112th 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.
