Hearthstone - The Witch Forest The backstory

The area around, known from World of Warcraft, serves as the background Gilneas and the witch forest. Accordingly, many cards also revolve around worgen.

“Once there was a treacherous peace between the city of Gilneas and the ancient forest that loomed beyond the city walls. The inhabitants of the city lived and hunted in the shade of the threatening giant trees, but the Gilneans are no ordinary people and so they traveled the forest without fear.

That was before some dark force began to poison the heart of the forest ... Before the curse of the witch forest!

Now a lightless haze veils the winding paths and gnarled branches reach hungrily for unsuspecting hikers. Horrified travelers tell of misshapen shadows wafting through the eerie fog. At witching hour, ghostly figures were spotted roaming through the narrow streets and fog-shrouded, cobbled streets of the city itself.

Daring travelers who venture beyond the city walls after nightfall disappear into the wilderness and never return. The witch forest is not a safe place for anyone! "
