Approximately to the same time, the [[night elf]] [[Sentinel]] [[Velinde Starsong]] was given the task to clear [[Felwood]] of [[demon]]s. She prayed to [[Elune]] and was granted a magical Scythe which could summon Worgen. She summoned larger numbers to fight at her side against the demons. Later Velinde began to notice that some of her force were unaccounted for. It was as though the [[Scythe of Elune]] no longer required her intervention for the summoning process. So she ordered them to remain at the [[Shrine of Mel'Thandris]] in [[Ashenvale]] and began to search for [[Archmage Arugal]], whom she had heard also summoned worgen. From that point her fate was unknown, but it was rumored, that she was killed in [[Duskwood]] and lost the Scythe. Now the dark mage [[Morganth]] took up the search for the powerful Scythe of Elune. Dark Riders from [[Deadwind Pass]] came also to [[Duskwood]] looking for the Scythe and murdered a family of farmers in the attempt.

=Rumor=
 
 
It is currently rumored that the Worgen may be the the next playable race on the [[Alliance]] side. It must be stressed that this is unsubstatiated. The basis of this rumor has stemmed from postings on numerous gaming sites of information that is alleged to have come from the official Burning Crusade website that has since been removed.
 
 
The following is what is alleged to have been taken from the original website.
 
 
''"The people of Gilneas entombed themselves in their isolated peninsula at the outbreak of the [[Undead]] [[Scourge]], erecting the [[Greymane Wall]] to keep out the demons and walking dead of the cursed army. To this day, refugees from the ravaged villages of [[Lordaeron]] gather at it, crying for safe haven from the [[Forsaken]] that now claim [[Silverpine Forest]] as their own.''
 
 
''Yet it is not much better behind the wall. For agents of the crazed wizard [[Arugal]] have infiltrated the once-prosperous land and spread a dark curse among the populace. As the first tainted moon climbed into the sky, screams rendered the countryside as the inhabitants of Gilneas changed forms and became the crazed Worgen. Few retained their minds. Many became wild and bloodthirsty.''
 
 
''Those who remained in control of their thoughts waged a war hidden from the eyes of the rest of the world, slaying former friends and family in an effort to preserve what little life still hoped for survival. Naming themselves the [[Nightcry]] after that first terrifying moonrise, they fought until they found themselves drained of resources and the will to continue the bloody battles alone.''
 
 
''Unable to conceal their horrid existence from the world any longer, a new sun rises over Gilneas. The Alliance has opened its gates to the refugees and an effort is now underway to restore humanity to the Nightcry Worgen. As one of their number, you must prove yourself a capable ally to the Alliance's cause and master the powers granted to you against your will in order to free your land...no matter how much blood you must shed.''
 
 
 
Once again I must stress that there is '''NO HARD EVIDENCE''' to support this and that the strength of this rumor is based mostly on its plausibility and it's use of existing features and lore. The veracity of this rumor will be determined when the Alliance race is actualy announced at the [http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/burningcrusade/ Burning Crusade] website. It is alleged by some that this was actually a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fan_fiction fan-fiction] but no one has yet posted a link to it's origin.
 
 
It SHOULD BE NOTED that it's very plausible for there to be Worgen in The Burning Crusade. The logic is that the new race must be connected to the outland. The Worgen are interdimensional beings, and one of those dimensions could have something to do with the outland. Obviously thier sprites could be changed around to be something of a "wolfgirl" or a "wolfboy", akin to catgirls, to reflect thier more human nature.

Worgen

General

A large, wolf-like humanoid reminiscent of a werewolf that walks upright, but lopes on all fours to run. According to sources held by The Forsaken, the Worgen come from another dimension, and exist only to terrorize and destroy. Most Worgen keep their wolf-like forms at all times, but experiments by the mage Arugal has resulted in Human/Worgen hybrids who only appear as Worgen under the light of the moon. They carry with them a dark corrupting malaise that grows wherever they infest, making the surrounding area dark and gloomy.

History

Ur, a mage of Dalaran, did research on Worgen but never summoned them. Frustrated by the destruction of Dalaran, by the Scourge and against the advice of his peers, Archmage Arugal elected to summon an army of the extra-dimensional entities by using Ur's research and then cursed the village of Pyrewood to turn into Worgen whenever the sun went down. They fought against the undead armies, but quickly turned on the wizards themselves. Driven mad with guilt, Arugal adopted the Worgen as his children and retreated to the newly dubbed Shadowfang Keep.

Approximately to the same time, the night elf Sentinel Velinde Starsong was given the task to clear Felwood of demons. She prayed to Elune and was granted a magical Scythe which could summon Worgen. She summoned larger numbers to fight at her side against the demons. Later Velinde began to notice that some of her force were unaccounted for. It was as though the Scythe of Elune no longer required her intervention for the summoning process. So she ordered them to remain at the Shrine of Mel'Thandris in Ashenvale and began to search for Archmage Arugal, whom she had heard also summoned worgen. From that point her fate was unknown, but it was rumored, that she was killed in Duskwood and lost the Scythe. Now the dark mage Morganth took up the search for the powerful Scythe of Elune. Dark Riders from Deadwind Pass came also to Duskwood looking for the Scythe and murdered a family of farmers in the attempt.
