House Goodbrother of Hammerhorn is a noble house from The Iron Islands. They are one of the most powerful houses from Great Wyk , the largest of the islands. Their keep of Hammerhorn is inland, in the Hardstone Hills and their wealth comes from mining and quarrying not from the sea. Hammerhorn is the main seat of House Goodbrother, which has cadet branches throughout Great Wyk, among them are those who hold the towers of Downdelving, Crow Spike Keep, and Corpse Lake. They are one of the few castles on the Iron Islands that has a maester.
Hammerhorn was built by birdman7 and NoahRYS in September 2013. In order to build the castle situated among the hills and cliffs, the region was terraformed extensively, raising its elevation and making it a harsh and jagged landscape. The valley was slightly lowered to make the castle occupy a strategic locations.
The castle is described in the books, especially its square design and iron battlements and gates. The quarry and mines were also mentioned in the books, but the builders made sure that they used technology available within the time frame of our universe. The town and buildings were modeled off others on Great Wyk in the Iron Islands style.
Hammerhorn was featured in Episode 13 of WesterosCraft Walks. DutchGuard explored the quarry and keep, and oddly in fitting with the theme of thirteen was interrupted by a thunderstorm and saw a mysterious glowing cheese.
