Eonwe is a very important industrial world. Known for its dry local environment (there are very few water resources beneath the world surface), water conservation is a major concern. A mostly-automated ice mining operation has been running in the outer system for years; ice blocks are collected in orbit, then sent ‘slingshot style’ to Eonwe, where they are processed. This is the major source of starship fuel, of course (unless a ship captain is willing to make the several days minimum trip to the gas giants in the outer system), and this is reflected in the prices charged – typically 75% or more over standard costs.
Note that these ice shipments also have an impact on interstellar jumps. Several “exclusion zones” have been established over the years, where no ice is sent, making it safer for ships to jump in/out of the system. This system was established after a number of major accidents. The data for these safe zones is updated constantly, with the data being made available to any ship within three parsecs at no charge. Ships jumping into the system are advices to take extra time calculating their jump plots to increase their chances of arriving directly in these zones; the zones are wide, but jump actions are, of course, somewhat unpredictable. The local government assumes no liability for ships which arrive outside (or even within) these safety zones.
This lack of water has also had a major impact on local industries. They are not only extremely efficient using water resources, many have developed alternative techniques and elements when water resources are typically used. This has led to several important and unique industrial developments, which have propelled local industries in the conservation fields.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.

This is my 340th 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.
