Silver Hill is a mining town nestled in the Covarus Mountains. It lies just within the northern boundary of the Kingdom of Akari and is also several days travel from the Dwarven city of Kullengaard. Silver Hill is a city that has risen upon the backs of its mining industry. The name was chosen because of the tales of silver running straight from the hills of the town. It was even said that a particularly clever dwarf used a shield to ride these currents, but most dismiss this tale. It is true that the town has enjoyed a certain amount of wealth because of its success in mining.
Silver Hill has the atmosphere of a bustling frontier town. Buildings are rugged and practical with little attention to decorative detail. Citizens are used to long days of hard labor. The metal and gems found within the mountains have made some citizens quite wealthy, but as always, wherever there is wealth to be made, outlaws aren’t too far away.
The town of Silver Hill is also different from the other towns of Akari in that it has sizable Dwarven population. These dwarves serve as guides in the mountains, teach the skill of mining, and craft excellent weapons and armor. When not working, these dwarves have a reputation for indulgence in human-brewed ales.
