The following is my little bit of heaven, the Traveller Landgrab project.
Class IV. Naval Base.
Diameter: 532 miles (856km).
Atmosphere: Very thin oxygen-nitrogen with high nitrogen partial pressure.
Surface Water: 12%.
Government: Corporate (Instellarms).
Control Rating: 0
(The Canon according to GURPS Traveller: Behind the Claw)
UWP: B S32510 TL:A
D’Ganzio is described
(in GURPS Traveller: Behind the Claw) as
"Regional depot and support base for Instellarms operations in the sector. The highport serves as a hiring hall for mercenary units and individuals, and the administrative complex has an extensive contracts section and several banking establishments ready to issue repatriation bonds."
This description doesn’t do D’Ganzio justice. It is also the home address for thousands of independent armorers, bio-sculptors, medical services, and R&R centers. No fewer than eleven spinworlds orbit D’Ganzio, ranging in population from a few thousand (Mediquik, Little Vegas), to over one hundred thousand (Instellarms Fields). The tech Level of 10 only applies to locally produced items. All of the medical technology is Level 12, minimum, and arms of TL 12 are often available.
In addition to D’Ganzio, there are other settlements in the system, mostly small independent volatiles producers. Most have populations in the hundreds, with the notable exception being Flax, a satellite of Nlyn, the inner gas giant.
