Hyrcanus is a cold world, lying just off a major trade lane. As a result the world sees a fair amount of traffic, which fuels the local economy. Although the Hyrcanus’ technology isn’t exceptional, it’s industries are fairly efficient, and maintains a good, steady level of output.

In addition to Hyrcanus itself, the system has a number of other colonized worlds. The nearby planetoid belt (Orbit #5) is being heavily mined, and boasts a large population. The listed government and law level applies to a single habitat, located on a  large planetoid (in reality this is a small worldlet, with a rough diameter of around 800 km), which include over 80% of the belt’s total population. This government’s ruler overthrew the previous government in a coup, supported by much of the planetoid’s population. This support is not widespread throughout the citizenry, however; there have been numerous incidents, some quite deadly, and the new leader has been forced to implement martial law until the situation can be brought under control. The remainder of this belt is “situation normal”, with a generally low law level among the few remaining settlements.

In the companion star system the closest world to the star was colonized a century ago.  This world was peaceful until a major disagreement occurred regarding, of all things, what to name the colony. The resulting arguments became heated, and the populace soon divided itself into six factions, each supporting a different name. This little disagreement has not resulted in any wars, of course, but the situation remains unsettled, with no potential settlement in sight. Observers and sociologists are confused as to how, and why, this issue came to be, and there is speculation outside forces may be interfering. No proof of this has yet been uncovered.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 119th 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.
