Scar is an “off the beaten path” location, and almost entirely ignored by the outer universe. Originally settled in an early human diaspora, the small settlement was apparently forgotten, or abandoned and left to its own devices. Contacted centuries later, the colony was found to have devolved to a completely primitive state. The reasons for this devolution are unknown, and can probably not be determined any more with any accuracy.
Those few individuals who have visited Scar have stated the world’s society is some form of popular democracy, though just who can (or will) partake in running what passes for a government was unclear. It has been several centuries since reliable information has been reported about Scar; given the primitive nature of the world’s inhabitants, it is very likely the situation has changed.
Small groups of independent belt miners are prospecting the system’s planetoid belts, with varying degrees of success. Although there are deposits being located here, so far the quantity and quality of these finds has failed to attract much interest from larger mining concerns, allowing these belters to maintain their relative independence.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 280th hand-generated “System of the Day” entry, using the Traveller5 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 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.
