Roland's Doom is the mine which the Scythe of Elune apparently resides. The mine, now Worgen-infested, is where Jitters first found the Scythe, releasing the Worgen and in time the Dark Riders upon Duskwood and Darkshire, condemning them to permanent darkness.
Whoever Roland was, he apparently died here. It is possible he led the team who uncovered the scythe, and were subsequently murdered by the worgen. The mine is now the location of Gutspill and Nefaru, who lead the worgen at the Rotting Orchard.
