Where was Silver Run?

In the Village of the Lost quest the Dunmer lady claims the village of Silver Run had been in Vvardenfell before it got dragged into Coldharbour. Where in Vvardenfell? Unless it was in the Sheogorad region I've not seen any obvious places where a settlement might have used to be, but I've not combed every square inch of the island either.

    This is **major** thread necromancy, but nothing regarding this is outdated info so I hope it doesn't get axed too soon! I found this because I was wondering the same

    There was nothing from Arena- very little occurred on Vvardenfell during that game.

    Somewhere near the slopes of Red Mountain, perhaps?

    There are Telvanni banners throughout Silver Run, implying it was a Telvanni-associated village.

    Either way, it looks like it was designed fresh for ESO, and we have to infer that its original location has been lost to time. Probably the same with Khaj-yahai.

    Interesting that Dushnikh was derived from a real place, though!

    Drat, and they just closed the ‘ask anything Telvanni related’ Q&A yesterday. :(

    Maybe it’s ‘Old Run’ and it was eventually rebuilt and renamed?

    Oh crap, you're right! Man, that would have been great to get an answer on...

    I think there was a theory that Old Run was retconned (and moved) to Ald'Ruhn by TES3. Though it being originally Silver Run is also a great interpretation.

    Run as in “flow of lava” would suggest that any contemporary area of lava could be the site of a prior settlement. Since topography tends to bias towards reuse of the same channels, Old Run and Silver Run could very likely have obliterated and resettled more than once.
