The Silver Marches (Server)
|The Silver Marches|
Welcome to the Silver Marches!
"This is a land like no other in Faerun. Home to a diverse population of folk dedicated to carving prosperity and order from the forbidding wilderness, the area remains a little-explored and largely unconquered territory inhabited by war-hungry orc hordes, hostile giants, and an array of bloodthirsty monsters." –From "Silver Marches" by Ed Greenwood and Jason Carl
ALFA's Silver Marches server ("TSM") includes the city of Silverymoon, the dwarven stronghold of Citadel Felbarr, and a number of towns and villages along the Rauvin River and the surrounding lands.
Characters created on TSM have three options for where they will begin their adventures: Rivermoot, Silverymoon, and Citadel Felbarr.
Rivermoot is a small village at the confluence of the Rauvin and Surbrin Rivers. At the edge of the wilderness, it is surrounded by a wooden palisade, built in the hope of fending off the goblins, orcs, and other foes in the area. There are many opportunities for an adventurer in Rivermoot – speak to the townsfolk. Paths lead eastward along the Rauvin towards Silverymoon, and northward into the hills towards the wilds. All characters have the option to begin their adventures here.
Silverymoon is a large walled city at the center of the Marches. Called "the Gem of the North" by many, Silvy is a center of civilization and culture in the midst of wilderness. Humans, elves, halflings, gnomes, and dwarves all live together here in peace. The arts, learning, craftsmanship, and hospitality are valued here. Magic is especially valued in Silvy – the city itself is protected by magical wards; the river that divides it is spanned by the Moonbridge, an arch of pure magical force; and the Ladies College is the foremost school of arcane learning in the North. Opportunities abound here for adventurers. Characters of all sorts may start in Silverymoon.
Citadel Felbarr is a dwarven fortress perched in the snowy foothills of the Nether Mountains. Felbarr was wrestled from the control of orcish hordes by dwarves fighting under the banner of Emerus Warcrown. While the market areas of Felbarr are usually open to all visitors, but the deeper chambers are only open to dwarves, gnomes, or those who have proven themselves to be true friends. Gnome and dwarf characters may choose Citadel Felbarr as their starting point.
