Regrouped into the Westfall Brigade
The People's Militia is a primarily human volunteer military organization based in Westfall and focused on defeating the Defias Brotherhood. It was founded because the general notice in the area was that "Stormwind has abandoned Westfall". The initiative is based in Sentinel Hill but protectors can also be found wandering various nearby roads. Members of the militia also enlist young adventurers to thin out the local gnoll population and deal with other various threats. Their leader, Gryan Stoutmantle, directs them from the lower section of Sentinel Tower in Sentinel Hill.
In the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, it was revealed that the People's Militia became an official part of the Stormwind Army as the Westfall Brigade. They were assigned to Grizzly Hills in Northrend to fight the Scourge, and it is hinted that the Defias threat to Westfall was gone for good.
After their tour of duty in Northrend the Brigade returned home to Westfall, where they found that the cost of the war had left thousands homeless, who then migrated to Westfall to squat on many of the abandoned properties. While the Defias Brotherhood was reformed by Vanessa VanCleef, the Westfall Brigade continues to safeguard Westfall from their influence.
