The inhabitants of Pyrewood Village, which is located below the massive Shadowfang Keep, were simple, ordinary people. Due to unknown reasons, most likely due to the odd Pyrewood Shackles they wear, the townsfolk turn into rampaging Moonrage worgen at night.[1] The village elders most likely know some information as to the reasons the townsfolk turn into worgen, but yet, the elders remain humanoid at night.

The fact that the villagers look surprisingly like the Sons of Arugal commonly found in the area may be noted. It can be concluded that when Arugal took control of Shadowfang Keep, his dastardly experiments had a negative effect on the residents of the local village (who were employed at the keep).

Curse of the Worgen

The Gilnean town of Pyrewood had in truth fallen to the Curse of the Worgen, brought on by the summoning of the worgen by Archmage Arugal against the Scourge in the Third War in service to Gilneas. Sealed off from Gilneas, the townsfolk soon succumbed to the curse as Arugal took up refuge in Shadowfang Keep, driven mad by what he had done.

Pyrewood became afflicted with the curse, and at night its inhabitants became mindless worgen in service to Arugal.


Cataclysm This section concerns content related to Cataclysm.

As of the Cataclysm, the Moonrage pack, as well as most of the worgen in Silverpine Forest, have been eradicated by the Forsaken. Pyrewood was wiped out along with its original occupants, then later destroyed again after the Alliance planned to use the town. With the villagers dead, it is presumable that like the other worgen, the Moonrage pack has been either wiped out or absorbed into the larger Bloodfang pack.
