Highcastle, which earned its name from the keep located just south, was the largest community in High Dale. It served as a crossroads between Cormyr and Sembia.[2] Despite there being no permanent trading companies in all of High Dale, many traders would come to the city to trade in the warmer spring and summer months.[3]

Government and defense[edit | edit source]

The city of Highcastle was home to High Dale's ruling body, the Dale Council and the High Constable, which was Irreph Mulmar in 1367 DR. It also housed their militia, the mercenaries known as the Pegasus Archery Company and Irreph's militaristic endeavor, the Flying Auxiliary.[3]
