Located near "Old Skyhorn," the older and largely disused part of the greater city of Skyhorn, the lighthouse sits at the top of a high cliff. It was erected to act as a beacon, warning passing ships of the rock face that stands between open water and the port of Skyhorn.
The lighthouse was up a tall cliff, and was most easily accessible by sea. The main building consisted of a floor with a kitchen and a barracks, and a long spiral staircase up to the lantern chamber. Various hidden passages in the lighthouse lead to a tunnel under the cliff. The tunnel is also accessible by a cottage in a hidden cove near the lighthouse. Deep in the tunnel was hidden the treasure of the lantern keepers, the aquan bowl. The bowl was used to summon a water elemental to assist ships in distress off the coast.
