The Tides of Shadow
High Horn is a huge Cormyte military stronghold at the top of the High Horn mountain in the Storm Horns, at an elevation of around 1000 feet (305m). It is led by Lord Commander Thursk Dembarron and is garrisoned by around a hundred archers and three hundred other soldiers. In the winter, it is home to half of the entire army of Cormyr. The stronghold is often home to War Wizards as well. It has never come under siege or attack.
The stronghold guards the road to the west through High Horn Pass in order to prevent potential invaders from passing the Storm Horns. There are royal gem mines in this area too. Although High Horn contains guest facilities, these are quite basic. The Lord Commander Thursk Dembarron keeps the atmosphere disciplined at all times.
