Looming over Pyrewood Village from the southern bluffs of Silverpine Forest, Shadowfang Keep casts a shadow as dark as its legacy. Sinister forces occupy these ruins, formerly the dwelling of the mad archmage Arugal's worgen. The restless shade of Baron Silverlaine lingers, while Lord Godfrey and his cabal of erstwhile Gilnean noblemen plot against their enemies both living and undead.

The archmage's madness is ended, but Shadowfang Keep is far from sanctified. The traitorous Gilnean noble, Vincent Godfrey, has seized control of Shadowfang while fleeing from his many enemies. Surrounded by remnants of the Scourge and the whispering ghosts of those who've met their end in the keep over the years, Godfrey now plots the downfall of both the Alliance and Horde.
