System of the Day #308 – Sycha

With fewer than one thousand residents. Sycha is another backwater system. Not being located on a local trade route, the system’s small colony was ignored, and residents fend for themselves. Maybe one half reside near the starport, with the remainder being wandering prospectors, hunters, and hermits.
There is no established system of governance on Sycha. Locals have agreed to a general “no explosives” rule, though there is no way to enforce it, of course. Since there is no real infrastructure, other than the starport being “there”, there are no services available, other than what is occasionally imported to replenish the port’s meager stockpile of spare parts. True to form on many backwater worlds, there are several bars, each serving overly expensive imported alcohol or yeasty local beer of execrable quality and reliability.
The world does see an occasional starship pass through, as a desperate or curious trader makes his way to nearby systems. Very rarely is an actual cargo available for purchase – usually some pelts, some ore from a lucky fine, and the like. These cargoes, rare and feeble as they are, do little to attract others to Sycha, and it is likely the world will forever be classified as a backwater, a world to be ignored.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 308th 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.
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.
