Dyrnwyn has a ideal environment and a balance of available water for producing food from plants, animals, or other forms. The system supports a population in the 100's of millions, which makes it too urbanized to make it an agricultural world. It is a member of Sword Worlds Confederation in the Sword Worlds Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Sword Worlds. This world supports a Sword Worlds Military Base and the system supports a Sword Worlds Naval Base.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Dyrnwyn is a member of the Spinward Main.

Dyrnwyn is tidally locked to "Rhydderch", its primary, despite sitting on the edge of the system's habitable zone. The near side of the planet is mostly ocean with a temperate climate, while the far side is frozen with average temperatures at the cold pole nearing -51°C.[2]

Dyrnwyn contains three main continents: Joekullvetur, Ny Groenland, and Eghvass. Other major land masses include the coveted Jarthlaug Islands in the ocean circle, which contain the settlement of Katlar. Both the capital city of Svartgardur as well as Ahgharad Starport are located on the Joekullvetur continent.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Dyrnwyn was formerly a member of the Sword Worlds Confederation. During the Fifth Frontier War, Dyrnwyn was invaded by Imperial troops on 233-1109 as part of Operation Azhanti Sunrise. Following the defeat of Sword Worlds forces, Dyrnwyn came under Imperial occupation and in 1110 was among the border systems that broke off from the Confederation to create the pro-Imperial client state called the Border Worlds Federation. In 1111 control of Dyrnwyn was returned to the Fortarn Conglomerate, the planet's Gungnir (Spinward Marches 1221)-based corporate owners, as part of a post-war goodwill package.

The Dyrnwyn ("White-Hilt") is said to be a powerful sword belonging to Rhydderch Hael, one of the Three Generous Men of Britain mentioned in the Welsh Triads.
