Varge orbits a very large, hot star. Fortunately, it is also located at the edge of that star’s jump limit. This allows easy access to the world, unlike some other worlds in similar situations.
Varge itself is a poor, hellish place to live. Water is always in short supply; fortunately the population isn’t very large. Of the world’s three governments, one is dominant, with 70% of the world’s people, and 80% of its economy. It also controls the starport, though smaller spaceports are present in the other two nations. It is theorized that the other two nations will eventually be forced to merge, either together or with the dominant nation. Whether this occurs or not, and how long it takes, remains to be seen.
This dominant nation has established a colony on the hot world in the system’s eighth orbit. This world, New Varge, is almost as bad for human habitation as Varge, but at least people don’t need air filters to breathe. Research is slowly under way on both worlds, investigating the potential for planetforming. It is believed by many, however, that these potential efforts will not be viable however, or they will take ‘too long’ to enact. What is needed is water, and the only viable sources (the two outer planetoid belts) are so distant it will take years for any ice asteroids to arrive. Analysts are working on the numbers, but for the moment research hints that the effort is not viable.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.
ADVENTURING OPPORTUNITIES – A small list of potential situations. Each must be fleshed out by the GM.

This is my 152nd 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 and 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.
