Horon is the god of those who dwell under the earth. He's a good god, so most of his worshipers tend to be dwarves. In D&D he has the same portfolio as Moradin. Horon is not a Phoenician god, instead his mythology and portfolio come from the religion of Tash (Syria). This puts worshippers of Horon at a disadvantage when dealing with Phoenician religious figures, who are suspect of Tashtak influence. However, it's an immediate positive when dealing with anyone from Tash or traditionalist Dragonborn. The worship of Horon has spread to dwarven communities as far as Badar, although the Badarins have included Horon into their pantheon and look upon his messengers favorably.
