My goal in writing entries such as this remains simple: to encourage readers to get back in the game and do those quests they never even knew existed, to explore and go where no other has so boldly gone before, and to come back here to tell us about their experiences or interpretations. If you like reading these entries help spread the word--it's bird! Er, blog--I MEAN BLOG! Tell your friends about our blog!
In my last entry I covered a lot of information concerning the history and origins of worgen. There is a plethora of lore surrounding the worgen and I fear we only got a glimpse of it last time. Follow along this week as we tackle the Dark Riders, Scythe of Elune, and some sinister wizard-wannabes, the likes of which you've always hated when leveling up. Ugh!
Previously we took a trip to
The Howling Vale
to investigate the disappearance of Velinde Starsong who wielded the Scythe of Elune, a mystical weapon which could grant communication with, and open a portal for, the worgen. Using the Scythe, Velinde summoned many packs and sought to destroy the demons of

In Search of the Scythe
The great mage Ur of Dalaran wrote more than just
Libro di Ur

Trattato di Ur sull'Ombra

where he is aided by the Shadowhide gnolls. Through a short series of quests, adventurers are asked to help spy on Morganth. One of the most unique objects in the game, a scrying orb which allows users to take a panoramic view of Redridge, may be found inside the Tower of Azora near the edge of

The Scythe, Found!
The Defias Brotherhood were lurking around Roland's Doom, an old mining shaft near the Yorgen Farmstead in
, when they happened upon a piece of wood in a pile of rubble. One of the men pulled the haft of a scythe loose from the pile when suddenly their torches flickered and a howling wind swept through the mine as if an evil entity began to whisper to them. They were attacked by creatures from out of nowhere—"hidden holes" in the ground and from the rafters above. One man, supposedly the only to survive, wrote that at least half of those in the mine met their doom in the first few minutes. So even though this person found a cursed scythe, it was lost in his escape. Continue in-game with the quest mentioned below to learn more about this gruesome encounter.
On a darkened embankment in northwestern Duskwood one may find a small camp where the river connects with Elwynn Forest and Westfall.
has taken up camp here since his family's farmland was overrun by Dark Riders from Deadwind Pass. Not a lot is known about the Dark Riders, sometimes called the Black Riders, who ride from Deadwind Pass. The group began stirring in Duskwood when the Scythe was believed to have been found. As they traveled through, looking for the Scythe, they slaughtered Sven's family. Sven was fortunate enough to be away from home at the time and so he now seeks answers.
The Dark Riders apparently take orders from a higher being, their "Lord," and have been seen communicating with a necromancer who resides at the Forlorn Rowe in Raven Hill. They are said to stalk near the outskirts of Darkshire, sometimes howling loudly and often appearing with a hound familiar to chase down travelers. As with all of Duskwood, one must be very careful when venturing beyond the protection of the local guard. Any able-bodied adventurer's should seek out Sven in-game near the Hushed Bank in western Duskwood.
Sven would ask for help to unravel this mystery. Would you be willing to
