Igriyama is a cold world, orbiting a large, hot star. It is a rather poor world, as living conditions are not ideal. However Igriyama does have good available resources, according to past surveys, as does the remainder of the sparse planetary system. A number of small companies and (mainly) independent miners work and live on the world, scratching out an honest, if difficult, living.
Being a backwater system, Igriyama sees little traffic, other than the occasional ore transport. The starport is barely capable of refueling visiting ships; it is considerably easier for smaller starships to just land in the world’s shallow oceans to refuel. Those which do must ensure their filters don’t become clogged, as the oceans are covered in a “green goo” of pseudo-algae. This has led to most visitors and locals referring to the world by its unofficial name: Sludge.
This algae is the remains of a planetforming effort initiated centuries ago. Unfortunately, it appears some scientist miscalculated, as the effort is not living up to expectations. The only apparent effect of this effort was for the algae to congeal on the ocean surfaces. It is possible a number of the preexisting local lifeforms have died off as a result of this algae, though no one has done research to confirm or disprove this theory. This research is unlikely to occur, as there is little financial incentive for it. And to be truthful, it appears no one really cares about the event.
The only other “settled” world in the system is a corporate mining establishment, located on a large world in Igriyama’s companion star system. A variety of ores are being mined here, though conditions are rather difficult, owing to the world’s very low temperatures, as well as radioactive dust in the atmosphere. The corporation has a difficult time keeping the dust out of facilities, most of which are very thick, low-lying, and heavily insulated to keep the cold out. There are plans in place to upgrade local facilities, but it is rumored these upgrades will not occur until a major deposit is located. This has worsened the attitudes of several groups of miners, as conditions are “tough enough as it is”, and they believe it is the company’s responsibility to improve conditions for its employees. There are, as of yet, no labor issues on this world, though that could change soon if improvements aren’t made.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 150th 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 my new Traveller dice and the Traveller5 (T5) rules set. Feel free to use this system in your own campaigns.
