The Silvershield estate was the family home of the Silvershield patriar family of Baldur's Gate. It was located on the western side of the Upper City's Manorborn district.[1]

DescriptionEdit

The estate was massive, nearly the size of an entire city block. Despite the grandeur that overshadowed other Baldurian manors, it offered little in the way of coziness and warmth.[1]

Both the grounds of the estate and the interior of its manor building were decorated by a variety of clockwork devices built by Gondar inventors.[1]

GroundsEdit

Perhaps the estate's most distinguished feature was its expansive gardens. It contained a variety of flora, some from as far away as the High Forest and Moonshae Isles. Beyond the herb and vegetable gardens were rows of blueberry bushes, a pear and persimmon orchard, and a small greenhouse full of sable moonflower. There was even a small topiary maze, inhabited by a number of shrub-covered steam dragons in the shape of animals.[1]

ManorEdit

In the foyer of the Silvershield home, on its ground floor, was a grand mosaic depicting the family's coat-of-arms over the ship that was depicted on the Baldurian coat. Beyond this anteroom were a number of sitting rooms and a large ballroom complete with a performer's stage. Even further was the west wing of the manor, which housed a spacious feasting hall that easily sat forty individuals.[1]

In the building's spacious basement were the servants' quarters and a full wine cellar.[1][2]

The upper floors of the manor building held the family's private chambers. Atop the main building was a circular tower containing a smaller dining space, a number of guest rooms, a parlor, the library, and the master bedroom and "main" study. Torlin Silvershield had another, secret study built within the small solarium located on the roof.[2]

DefensesEdit

The estate was protected by a number of guards stationed at the gate that opened up from the city walls.[2]
