Planetary Survey 3: Granicus is one of a series of GURPS Traveller books detailing a world including adventure scenarios.

Granicus (Glimmerdrift Reaches 0520), is home to over 25 million people. Its corrupt, faction–ridden government and out–of–the–way location make it the perfect base of operations for pirate cartels, whose criminal enterprises reach into Imperial space. The cartels are the secret masters of the planet. But in every corner lurk Imperial spies, looking for ways to combat the pirate threat.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Just outside the Imperium lies Granicus (Glimmerdrift Reaches 0520), a nondescript planet in an ordinary system. Nominally part of the Federation of Heron, Granicus charts its own course. The planetary government is a farce, barely able to control the struggles between city-states which define the planet's politics. And then there are the pirates.

For decades, Granicus has been a haven for space pirates, from independent Vargr corsairs to well-organised "cartels" that control whole renegade fleets. Savagely fighting with each other, openly controlling the government, and secretly supported by the Federation governor, the pirates of Granicus menace trade all the way into Imperial Space. Now, finally, the Imperium is moving. Will it risk war with the Federation of Heron, or will it act more ... indirectly?

Adventures abound for traders, spies, and freedom fighters alike. Brave the treachery and share in the wealth of Granicus... ...the Pirate Planet.
