A minor system along a major trade route, Solis was originally established as a fueling station. The world has slowly grown in importance as trade along the route has increased. The system would probably become more important if it were to have a steady source of local resources. Unfortunately, this is not the case; the Solis stellar system is about as resource-poor as a system can be. There are also no gas giants nor planetoid belts. Indeed, the system is almost devoid of the usual plethora of small planetoids which can be found in most systems. Even the Oort cloud is thin in comparison to similar systems. Scientists who have studied the issue have yet to determine a reasonable thesis as to why and/or how this could have occurred. The system does have a number of rocky moons, of course, and two worlds, including Solis itself, posses ring systems composed of icy chunks.
Nearly one fourth of the world’s 3.4 million sophont population are involved in the travel industry in some manner. Solis is a major point for transferring cargoes between systems which have no formal trade agreements (or hate each other). This allows for some trade occur between heated rivals, albeit in a roundabout fashion. This trade, storage and transfer fees, and fuel/ship provisions provide much of the world’s income.
Note that refueling in Solis’ sparse oceans is illegal. This rules is, of course, in place to increase income for the starport’s fueling services. Costs for fuel are only 10% higher for unrefined fuel, but 35% greater for refined fuel. Standard starship provisions are at normal cost for the region, but luxury provisions (which are in great demand in this crossroads system) run an extra 50%.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 161st 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. 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.
