The temple looked like a fortified stone keep; it had no high spires or artistic designs in its construction. The design of the temple was not just a facade; at times, it had served as an actual fortress and garrison for troops.
After the Time of Troubles, the Church of Helm across Faerûn saw a reduction in numbers—not so in Silverymoon, where temple attendance remained high. This was because most of the Knights in Silver, the High Guard, and a good number of the Spellguard were worshipers of Helm who believed in the watchful protection of their beloved city. In fact, the temple saw an increase in worshipers between the years 1360 and 1370 DR.
After the formation of the Silver Marches in the Year of the Gauntlet, 1369 DR, Master Erssler, without having to be asked, offered the temple to be used temporarily for offices, quarters, a chapel, and an assembly hall for Methrammar Aerasumé and his growing Argent Legion.
After Erssler sacrificed his life defending travelers from fiendish wolves, he was replaced by Vigilant Master Baerim Coraddor, whom Helm selected personally by a visible manifestation on the battlefield.
