Arpagus claims to be an “original” human colony; their ancestors are purported to have arrived on sublight ships millenia ago. Whether or not this claim holds any truth, the system has been settled for quite some time. And true to the human condition, Arpagus has never once had a single, cohesive society or government. At various stages in its history, the world has had anywhere from two to scores of different governments. The world has also seen its share of all-encompassing wars, though few nuclear weapons have ever been utilized. Surprisingly, little permanent ecological damage has been inflicted on Arpagus. The ecology isn’t “pristine”, but pollution is not an issue.
Arpagus currently claims three separate governments, with 25, 35, and 40% of the world’s population between them. Their technology levels are fairly equal, as well. However, while the current governments aren’t exactly overly friendly with each other, they are at least cordial, and much trade occurs between them. This has fueled each of their economies, and has also driven them to further trade efforts on and with nearby worlds. There is an undercurrent of cooperation in the three societies; while it may not be officially recognized or acknowledged, it is easy for trained observers to spot its influence, and there is (privately) some speculation that the system may be heading for unification some time in the future.
The rest of the system has of course seen its share of development and settlement. It is a surprising fact that the system’s three planetoid belts have not yet been mined out; this really isn’t that surprising, however, given the high general level of resources within the system.
There are three other major settlements with at least 100,000 residents, each of course having its own government, as well as two other minor settlements. The remaining worlds are not conducive to settlement for a variety of reason.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 137th 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 my new Traveller dice, with the Traveller5 (T5) rules.. 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.
