Silverwharf is a Syndesian coastal port town, harboured on the edge of Blackwater Pass. Once a wealthy port, the town has found itself on the decline in recent years, though the population sits healthy at around 7,000. Built amongst the towering trees of Wolfrock Woods in the shadow of the Kamtara Mountains, the port is a strategic vantage and an architectural curiosity.
Trade from the mountains has been important throughout the port’s existence, but they were also influential when it came to architectural designs as the vast majority of buildings mimic the broad slopes and steep peeks of the hills. Known for its export of valuable resources, Silverwharf earned its name from both the export of precious minerals and its production of silver swords. The port town has a healthy economy, which is mainly supported by armorsmithing and blacksmithing. However, the town is a hotbed for villainous activity and its underbelly is infamous as many pirates have called the port home over the last few centuries.
Caught between two counties the port has found itself conquered numerous times. What was once a sleepy port town has grown into a culture of variety, and the goods sold in the many market stalls are just as likely to be sold by humans and Arborean beasts alike. It’s this multicultural identity that has truly left its mark - Silverwharf is one of the few Syndesian towns that openly welcomes Arborean travellers and merchants. It is because of this that many mercenary groups use the town as a valuable recruitment location. For those with a strong arm looking for steady work, Silverwharf is often the first port eager adventurers call to.
Silverwharf will be a town built in Fractured when the game launches. It will be a home to roleplayers. However, if you would like to visit the town while we wait for release - join us over at the Silverwharf Fractured Roleplay Discord.
For a explorer that wanders through Syndesia's inland, this sounds like a nice coastal city to visit from time to time and make some deals. Hope to see you there soon.
