Alright, thought I'd handle the next bit of the Fluff and give Neverness a slight break. This post will be on the system that the Lions of Harlech have as their Home World. The chapter has evolved a very Welsh feel to it, and a large part of that was due to one of my favorite Sci-Fi novels which is "Falcon" by Emma Bull. The Cymru System is in the Cymric Sector of the Ultima Segmentum. This Sector is in the extreme upper right portion of Segmentum bordering the Fringe Space.

This system has an F-III type star and five planetary bodies. It also consists
of a dense asteroid belt between the orbits of Cymru-IV and Cymru-V.
Cymru-I (locally known as Noimal)
small glacier covered ice world used for mining and smelting.
Cymru-II (locally known as Tyr)
gas giant with several inhabited ice moons that support a small shipyard as well
as many gas mining platforms.
Cymru-III (locally known as Seonaidh)
a world of ice caves and deep ice chasms filled with hives, power plants, and
manufactories churning out all that the system needs to survive.
Cymru-IV (locally known as Eirlys)
another arctic glacier world with underground hives and artificial farms
Cymru-V (locally known as Niopes)
small desolate rock used as a dumping ground both for prisoners to die as well
as waste from the manufactories in the system.
This is the fortress monastery of the Lions of Harlech constructed in the Cymru System on the ice moon Braelich orbiting the gas giant Cymru-II at the top of the Lyr Glacier. It serves as the main training and staging point for the chapter as well as the linchpin for the system's defense. The fortress is carved down into a mountainside with numerous defense batteries of lascannons, autocannons, and heavy bolters, as well as a single planetary defense laser, guarding the approaches. Connected by deep armored tunnels are also several remote missile launch silos to engage any threat that reaches orbit.
Deep under the rock and ice, numerous vaults and repositories hold the wealth of the chapter as well as the geneseed of it's future. A multitude of small machine shops and manufactories are also located within to handle basic replacement and supply for the chapter. An Imperial Navy supply depot and repair docks have been constructed above the gas giant and supplement the fortress' defenses.
The reclusium of the fortress monastery, called the Llew Aelwyd (Lion's Den), is deep within the fortress. It is a dark and somber area of granite, marble, and onyx lit with flickering torches and hidden with long, deep shadows. Partially lit ancient banners and chapter relics are found throughout the chambers as members of the chapter silently come and go in reverence.
