Battle horns were a conjured magic created to counter the Shadow People that were created by Panis Rahl in the war between D'Hara and the Midlands. The Battle Horns were created by Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander and when they were blown they would sweep the Shadow People away like smoke on the wind. The magic coming from the horns also traces its way back through the spell that had summoned the Shadow People, seeking out the one who cast it, and kill them too. These Battle Horns were the first of its kind used in at least 3,000 years. The first Midlands unit to use the horns were under the command of General Brainard near the Kern River, against a D'Haran unit led by Urdland.
