Although the world of Tona has a good starport, its low population and lower technology keeps it from being more important within the region. These factors are likely related, as the world’s population has varied little in the past century and its technology (other than imports) has remained consistent for about the same amount of time.
There is little water on Tona’s surface, with the majority of that being small lakes. As such much of the world is covered in deserts, and water travel is almost unheard of. Refueling of any space faring vessel in the lakes of Tona is highly illegal, and difficult to hide, as each water source has a number of settlements around it. One enterprising belter, tired of constantly losing credits in nearby systems, joined forces with other belters, organizing a small refueling service by converting their seekers into fuel shuttles. This paid off quite well for the group, whose descendants still run the same business – with newer vessels, of course. Fuel (refined or unrefined) is sold at a 25% premium.
There are a number of mining and survey operations currently working on worlds in the outer system. Rumors surfaced last year that the government is considering taking bids to mine resources in the outer system. This generated a fair amount of activity in the system, as several companies and individuals began conducting surveys. Unfortunately, there has been no confirmation of the original rumor by any member of the government. Indeed, some suspect a local source created the rumor to increase traffic and business within the system. One government agency, several news services, and several private investigators have reportedly investigated this possibility, but so far have turned up no evidence, nor hints as to who may have started the rumor.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 297th 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 system was generated by hand, using Traveller dice and the Traveller5 rules set.
