The town might in fact be Cinderhome. Rumors exist that the town may have changed its name after Taelan Fordring and the Scarlet Crusade fought to reclaim it from the undead (without any luck, however). Tirion Fordring also sends players here to recover a flag called the Symbol of Lost Honor that Taelan must have dropped in the nearby lake during the fight against the Scourge.
