Silden was once only a simple fishing village. The Temple of Eortis was later built on an island nearby, bringing petitioners to its port.
Abuk says that the city is ruled by the Crawler, and convenes a secret session of his assistants, when passers by are usually killed.
Soaked for ages in the rank perfume of fish scales and sea salt, the wharves of Silden seemed more likely a home for a race of fish men than the leather skinned sailors who trod its wooden planked docks. Traditionally the home of the less reputable, it was known for its shady transactions with the slavers of Greater Kesh.
