Silverstream is located where the Bluewater River meets the Silverstream River. The town occupies most of the space between the two rivers with Castle Silverstream sitting on top of the rocky point at the river junction. Baron Helmuth De Honore holds this land, including the town, for the Prince of Ranke.

The Arms of Silverstream is a blue background with a silver diagonal stripe. A silver tree is in the upper right, and a silver river serpent occupies the lower left. Most of the inhabitants are Gabrielites.

The castle was founded 200 years ago by Horace de Honore who was a mercenary knight and an Earth mage who fought a river serpent to claim the rock where the castle now sits. The castle foundations and the walls of the central hexagonal keep are Bound Earth. The Castle also contains a secret portal to one of the Faerie Planes.
