System of the Day #26 – Esslin

Esslin
C61057C-6 Ni PBG= 802
Ix= -3 Ex= 2402 RU= 16 Cx= 7215
———————————————————-
There is little to recommend Esslin as a tourist or commercial destination. Although the local economy is very efficient, very little is produced here.

Most of the system’s reported resources are locked into the bedrock of the system’s numerous large worlds, and Esslin’s tech base isn’t sufficient to support extraction. Ancient reports, now centuries out of date, indicated large deposits of various rare earth elements could be found in quantity, but new surveys would need to be completed before any mining would be contemplated, and the world’s squabbling governments do not have sufficient funds or local support to even consider pursuing this pipe dream.

Until such time as the system can solve its differences, and find funding, Esslin is likely to remain a backwater for the foreseeable future.

This is my 26th hand-generated “System of the Day” using the Traveller5 rules. 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 the name; I am only using it as an homage to a series which heavily influenced me (and, according to legend, Traveller itself).

System of the Day #25 – Brammadotta

Brammadotta
C76A5A7-C Ni Wa PBG= 601
Ix= 0 Ex= B481 RU= 352 Cx= 256C
———————————————————-
Brammadotta has seen its share of turbulence and upheaval in the last century. The government here has almost always been some form of Dictatorship, which has led to many problems in the past (long term disruption/corruption, economic upheaval, low level insurrections, and waves of violence). The current Dictator had seen enough.

This “new” Dictator (he took power thirty years ago) orchestrated a bloodless coup, ousting the previous, incompetent leader (who everyone believed was ruining the economy). He then placed the deposed leader and his supporters into permanent exile, sending them to a new penal colony, located on a barely habitable world in the close companion star’s second orbit – with proper support, of course. These exiles have survived and thrived, and by agreement the colony is slated to be given self rule within a decade, the deposed leader having died several years ago (he was well over 100).

In addition, after this coup another group of non-supporters relocated to a distant, habitable world orbiting the system’s farthest companion star. They decided on this course of action, rather than face arrest and exile. Although their new world is much more habitable than the penal colony, they haven’t fared as well up to this point. The colony isn’t in immediate danger, however.

Now that the political and immediate economic issues have been (slowly) resolved, the Dictator is focusing on bringing in outside investors, in a bid to spur growth.

System of the Day #24 – Vhenga

VHENGA
D457621-7 Ag Fr Ni Climate = Fr PBG= 131 Ix= -2 Ex= 5511 RU= 25 Cx= 9462
———————————————————-
Vhenga was settled by very hearty colonists. Indeed, only the strongest can withstand the world’s brutal winters, which last two thirds of the world’s long year. The world does have some resources available. However the most desired of these resources are locked in bedrock, which lie below thick sheets of ice. It is not considered economical to mine these resources currently.

These is evidence Vhenga may soon be coming out of a long “ice age” period in its history. Evidence for this is disputed, however. The Assembly is debating whether to allocate more funding to further research, which must be contracted from off world.

Currently little exploration has been conducted in the rest of the system, though this may change in the coming years.

System of the Day #23 – Hive

Hive
C320556-C De He Ho Ni Po Climate = Hot PBG= 510
Ix= 0 Ex= A44(-2) RU= -32 Cx= 854C
———————————————————-
Hive is a marginally important world in the region. Well, if you’re trying to buy or sell on the black market, then it becomes extremely important.

Hive is nominally run by a bureaucratic government. However, corruption in the ranks is so bad laws are rarely, if ever, enforced. Why follow a law, when a small bribe will void the offense? Crime is rampant in the system, and most citizens are always armed to some degree. Buildings are constructed to allow for easy defense, as well as to deal with the heat.

There is a single unit of the government which is not corrupt, and it is avoided/respected by all, even the worst criminals and gangs – the Water Department. Water is rare on any desert world, but moreso on Hive, and it is this department’s job to ensure adequate water is available. There is a single law which is strictly enforced on Hive: Do not waste water. Violations are punishable by death. Violations are quite rare.

Only a single trade commodity is completely regulated by Customs, and that is water. Even Customs is afraid of the Water Department. Water imports are immediately confiscated (a starship’s basic supplies are not covered by this law, of course), and subject to hideous fines.

Because there is no gas giant in the system, and only one very distant asteroid belt, fuel is incredibly expensive. Unrefined fuel is unavailable (it is water, after all, and controlled by the Water Department), and refined fuel – available only from the Water Department – is easily twice as expensive as normal, or even more if demand is high. Wise ship owners bring return fuel when visiting, if at all possible.

Hive Downport is larger than most other class C ports, due to the higher volume of traffic in the system, but has no orbital facility, and only a single communications satellite. The associated Startown is notorious; its reputation for violence and depravity far outpaces any other equivalent area in the Sector, and possibly throughout all of explored space. Caution is advised.

By tacit agreement, piracy is not conducted in the system. Well, not near Hive anyway. It is one of the few locations where goods can be unloaded quickly. No pirate in his/her/its right mind wants to risk being banned from the system, or merely destroyed by everyone else.

The remainder of the system is, for the most part, unexplored. The primary star is too hot, and only a single world retains any surface water, which is wracked by storms. This world sits too far inside the Primary’s gravity well to be worth visiting, and it remains almost completely unexplored.

Broome
B765633-A Ag Ga HZ Ni Ri Tz
Climate = T PBG= 633

———————————————————-
Broome is another rich, agricultural garden world whose citizens enjoy a high standard of living. They have sufficient technology available to make life easy, and enjoy a wide range of diversions.

The world’s economy is supplemented by mining the rich planetoid deposits in the system’s three large planetoid belts.

The colonists on the large world in the system’s ninth orbit are Heavy Worlders – humans modified to thrive in heavy gravity conditions. This colony owes allegiance to the government of Broome, but in reality is independent; no one else can endure the world’s crushing gravity for long, even with technological assistance, so they are effectively free to pursue their own interests. These mainly consist of keeping to themselves and living their lives.

System of the Day #21 – Raniang

Raniang
X564775-1 Ag Ri Climate = T PBG= 312
Ix= 0 Ex= 7683 RU= 1008 Cx= 7691
———————————————————-

Raniang is a world which seems to be “stuck” at a medieval level of technological development – by choice. For a wide variety of reasons, mainly cultural, the locals refuse contact with any offworlders.

Raniang is divided into hundreds of small to mid-size social groupings and countries, divided mainly by language, culture, religion, and even tradition. Most are involved in some level of conflict with at least one of its neighbors. These conflicts range from refusing trade, to economic ‘warfare’, to outright attacks, and apparently begin or end without notice or apparent reason (to distant observers, anyway).

The world’s agricultural production appears to be very efficient. It needs to be, given the apparently high percentage of the citizenry needed to maintain the nearly constant conflicts. Most observers and analysts have declared the world as “off limits”, until they are more conducive to contact and trade.

System of the Day #20 – Micuhiri

Micuhiri
C48778B-8 Ag HZ Ri Tz PBG= 200
Ix= 1 Ex= 7691 RU= 378 Cx= 6817
———————————————————-
Micuhiri is a fairly important world. Its rich agricultural output supports a productive society. Tidally locked to its Primary star, the small world still manages to produce a fair amount of agricultural produce.

Surprisingly, Micuhiri also exports healthy quantities of strong lumber. A imported, modified “tree”, called bambaa, grows very quickly on the steep island hillsides of the world’s unoccupied, rain- and wind-swept islands. Though this plant doesn’t grow very tall, its wood is very tough and flexible, and resistant to most parasites. It is used for many local building projects, and is also prized offworld for a wide variety of uses.

In the primary star’s 8th orbit a penal colony was established. Thirty-odd years ago local rebels, supported by offworld interests, attempted to overthrow the efficient bureaucratic government. The rebellion was only haphazardly supported by the working class citizens, whose interests it claimed to represent, and was quickly crushed. Evidence of support by one regional shipping conglomerate was found, resulting in that company being permanently banned from the system. The rebellion’s local supporters, all 500 or so of the survivors, were placed on a distant world, and given various resources (and occasional shipments of supplies), and told to, “establish their own worker’s paradise”. Surprisingly, they have survived, and even thrived to a degree. The government is considering petitions to grant the prisoners full pardons, and local rule.

A group of hardy local “adventurers” (no other term really fits) took up a challenge ten years ago, to colonize an ice world in the companion system. So far they have survived with some support. They are currently researching methods to warm the planet up, with little success.
