Deathknell is a little Undead town in a valley that lies in the south of Tirisfal Glades.
Only half of the town is under Undead control because the Scourge have taken the northern half of the town. The Scarlet Crusade used to be a threat to the town because they had a outpost near by but it has been taken over by rebel Undead. The Undead also have a problem with the Gold Mine in the valley Night Web's Hollow north west of Deathknell because it has been overrun by Night Web Spiders which is stopping the Undead from mining. The town also is the main headquaters of the Forgotten Shadow who are heads of the Undead religion.
