I'm about to run a D&D 5E campaign that centers around the village of Deadsnows in the Silver Marches. I'm using the Blood and Gold campaign as a template and branching out in several directions / storylines. After reading several FR products about the region (Silver Marches (3E), Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (3E), Volo's Guide to the North (2E), and the Storm King's Thunder (5E)), I've noticed that there's a discrepancy when it comes to the location of the Hospice of Marthammor.
In Silver Marches (which has a campaign where Deadsnows is the focus), it clearly describes and shows on a map that the hospice lies several miles outside of town (http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Deadsnows). In Volo's Guide to the North, it doesn't mention the hospice, but notes: "The dwarves worship in a natural cavern beneath a tor that rises at the center of the walled community. In times of trouble, everyone in Deadsnows retreats into this cavern, and the entrances are walled off... The tor is also used as a lookout post." This tor isn't shown on the Silver Marches map; in fact, Icespear House appears to be the highest point within the walls, and it's off in a corner.
In the Storm King's Thunder, it describes the hospice as being at the center of town: "The main feature of Deadsnows is the Hospice of Marthammor, a fortified abbey in the middle of town. Surrounding it are several wood-frame buildings that make up the town, and all is contained within a crumbling wall that's in desperate need of repair."
It sounds like Silver Marches is the outlier, despite having a map clearly exposing the Hospice of Marthammor as being outside the walls Deadsnows - definitely not in the center. Was this an oversight by the creator of the Silver Marches book?
One other interesting note about the location of the hospice can be seen here: http://vince.manticore.be/Sessions/CotSQ/Deadsnows.htm . The close-up map of Deadsnows points to the hospice as being to the South-East, while the zoomed-out map revealing the surrounding region shows it as being to the North/North-East. Is this yet another mistake?
