Hendris is an unimportant world, located in a minor system off the main trade routes. The reasons this world were settled have been forgotten by most, the details only of interest to historians. The system itself has average resources, and little to no mining has been conducted on other worlds in the system. Although the world is no industrial giant (far from it), the society produces enough to support itself. These are mainly raw materials, mined from Hendris’ thin, dry crust.

The large world in orbit #4 is the site of a recently abandoned colony effort. Why the former residents attempted to colonize such a hellish world is unknown; after several years the entire colony packed up and returned to their original homeworld (located nearby in the region). There is little left of the colony itself; not only did the former settlers take anything which was portable, the atmosphere of the world itself will eventually consume almost anything which remains. It is estimated the colony’s remnants will be gone within just a few years, due to the corrosive nature of the atmosphere.

The rest of the system remains relatively unexplored, and few surveys have been conducted. The world in the system’s distant 14th orbit has only been discovered in the last several years, and was located by accident, after a merchant misjumped. It took the crew almost a full year of travel in low berth to reach the inner system to be rescued. This world remains almost completely unexplored, and certainly has not been surveyed. It remains to be seen whether or not a survey is justified.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 116th 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 from 1967 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.
