The Sword Heralds were a group of mages that arrived unheralded in Cormyr several centuries prior to 14th century DR.

Before their abrupt departure, the Sword Heralds worked on a variety of projects that improved Cormyr, the most notable being the construction of extra-dimensional refuges, otherwise known as hideaways, that protected against the threat of foul weather, roaming brigands and monsters.[1]
