High Palisades Hold was a minor holding located on High Palisades Island, a large island to the southwest of Ista Island.
Lord Holder Toric of Southern Hold was born and raised here with his nine siblings; his parents were the holders, and his family had apparently lived here since the First Crossing. Toric did not wish to follow this tradition, and left the island, despite his father's threats to have him made effectively Holdless. In time, five more of Toric's siblings left the island to join him on the prosperous Southern Continent.
