Polis is a little “speck” of a world, barely large enough to qualify as a planet in most astrographic systems.
While the world itself is tiny, Polis’ impact on the region is anything but. Rated as one of the most important worlds in the region, if not the entire Sector, Polis has grown into one of the most powerful industrial worlds, with its influence being felt far beyond the normal range of its growing trade fleet. Natural resources are very, very plentiful in this system; indeed, this was the primary reason Polis was settled: easy access to many ores, including lanthanum. The system’s  three planetoid belts are being heavily mined, with only the innermost belt showing recent signs of playing out.
Within the last century, another rich lanthanum source was located on the system’s farthest planet (Orbit #12), and that world has been heavily developed since. There are two primary corporations on the world, neither of which gets along with the other. To avoid potential unpleasantries (and having the main government potentially step in), the two groups split that world into two equal parts, with only a common spaceport (and recreation area) shared between them. No weapons are allowed near the spaceport; this step was taken to reduce bloodshed, as there were frequent fights and brawls between off duty/vacationing miners. Independent security personnel (contractors, aka mercenaries) are used to maintain the peace.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 213th 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 from1967 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.

  1. Hello would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a fair price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!

    1. Sorry for the delayed response! Your comment/question was labelled as “spam” for some reason, and I just noticed it.
      I am currently using the basic, free level of WordPress, no other web host or any such thing. However, I am likely upgrading to a paid WordPress account, assuming I get a couple things straightened out.
      As for different browsers loading faster and such. If you are referring to browsers at entirely different locations/computers, then the difference it likely the local connection and/or any potential interference (VPNs and such). If this refers to using 3 different browsers on the same computer(s), then the issue is with those browsers. Microsoft’s browsers (Edge is the current one, right?) are NOTORIOUSLY slow. I only use Google’s Chrome browser, and have no issues with it (other than Google’s data mining shenanigans, but that’s a completely separate issue). I have used Firefox browser in the past, and it seems to be decent, though it’s been a while since I’ve used it regularly.
      I hope this helps you out. 🙂
