Libboth is another fairly important world. Located in a system with incredible resources, the world is not only agricultural, it is a major regional supplier of raw materials, including a number of rare radioactive isotopes. This includes lanthanum, which is essential for Jump drives (see the description for world #8, below). Libboth’s government maintains a well-equipped (non-jump capable), if small Patrol to keep their system free of potential pirates and interference, as the system sees steady traffic.

The “colony” listed for the Storm World in the system’s second orbital position is actually located on the world’s tidally locked moon. This station is conducting a long term survey of the storm world, with the goal of determining its potential as a colony. The storm world itself is ringed by data collection satellites, and the research station sends occasional probes into the world’s turbulent atmosphere to gather data.

The world in orbit 8 is the site of a major deep sea mining operation. Within the last decade an earthquake deep in the ocean sent a violent tsunami towards several colony cities, shattering the surface ice cover and killing hundreds. This event also exposed a previously undiscovered deposit of lanthanum. Local corporations have since begun mining this deposit, though there are frequent aftershocks, and occasional accidents. There is still fear of another earthquake, but the lanthanum deposit is incredibly rich, fueling the local economy, and these companies are working as best they can in difficult conditions to take advantage of the situation. It is feared the next earthquake will seal off ‘easy’ access to the lanthanum deposit, as well as devastate the world’s cities, and the region’s crust is constantly monitored.

The system’s distant companion system is also inhabited. Although there is no great world here (the best option being a cold, tidally-locked world), there are several colonies established to take advantage of easy access to the system’s mineral wealth.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 115th 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.
