We have tags for different fantasy genres: , , and well as for general fantasy questions, but what always struck me as odd is that we don't have a tag for high fantasy. Why so?

Tags are created on the fly, they're not preplanned under any sort of structure. Some people have used and but not all that many in the grand scheme of things. If anyone with over 300 rep had wanted to use then it would exist.
