Emblem of Silvergate Inn

The Silvergate Inn is predicated on the thought that Elanthia's citizens should have a place where they are able to enjoy themselves in comfort and style. The age, profession, religious leanings or social status of an adventurer is of no concern at House Silvergate.

The Inn is unusual amongst Elanthian Houses in that it is a House that requires membership, yet more than half of the Inn is open to the public at large. Latchable private rooms are available to all. The interior decoration in some of these rental rooms are quite special; a must-see for visitors. There are also tables, a swimming pool, observatory, art studio, ballroom, performance hall, pub, and tea room, all open to the public. The Inn has a luxurious, private spa that is open for some events.

Major annual events in recent years include Pirate Wars, a Mayoral Race Contest, and the Winter Gala and Fashion Extravaganza. Monthly events include a Spa Night and various other games and contests. Spellups are often given to members and non-members alike, who are found resting in the lounge, courtyard, or grand hall. Official event dates and times can be found on a chalkboard in the Inn's private lounge or on blackboards in most of the House Annexes in other cities.

Silvergate Inn is located in Wehnimer's Landing at the junction of West Ring Road and South Ring Road, but has annexes available to its members in all towns and cities with CHE annexes available. It is a member of the Co-operative Houses of Elanthia.

Appendix A


I as a person and a player of GemStone IV, wish to provide a roleplaying environment for those wishing to have a place to call home while in Elanthia.

As such, I take responsibility to maintain and rule this house structure. I have invested and I intend to invest considerable time and money (both real and fantasy) in this venture.

After careful consideration I have opted to roleplay this House as an Inn operated as a sole proprietorship by my character Katara Stormwild.

It is my hope that Simutronics will carefully consider this and allow me to play it as such or to reach a compromise.
