Short story in the World of Warcraft Official Strategy Guide.
A paladin defends Darkshire from an attacking abomination. Warned by the town crier, while the city militia, the Night Watch rallied, the paladin, along with a warrior, priest, and night elf rogue began to battle the monster. The rogue had died during the battle, but the paladin was able to call him back to life. They had all stood up against one of the worst horrors they had ever encountered. He vowed to one day reclaim Duskwood, so that all its citizens could roam in its tranquil gardens and bright glades again.
