Long ago, the Orcisch horde was corrupted by the Burning Legion and lured to the world of Azeroth. For generations the Orcs made war upon the Human kingdoms of Stormwind and Lordaeron. Though the Horde was ultimately defeated, a visionary young Warchief named Thrall rose to lead his people in their darkest hour. Under Thralls rule, the Orcs freed themselves from the chains of demonic corruption and embraced their shamanistic heritage. After years of wondering, the Orcs founded their own kingdom in the harsh wastelands of Durotar. Based in the warrior city of Orgrimmar, they stand ready to destroy all who would challenge their supremacy. As a proud defender of Durotar it is your duty to crush your enemies, both seen and unseen. For the nefarious agents of the Burning Legion still wander the land.
Once a nomadic people, the Tauren roam the endless plains of the Barrens, hunting the mighty Kodo. Scattered across the land, the wandering tribes were only united by their common hatred for their sworn enemy, the marauding Centaur. Seeking aid against the Centaur, the Great Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof befriended the savage Orcs, who had recently journeyed to Kalimdor. With the Orcs help, Cairne and his tribe were able to drive back the Centaur and claim the grasslands of Mulgore for their own. Upon the windswept mesa of Thunder Bluff, Cairne build a refuge for his people. Over time the scattered tribes united under a single banner. Though the noble Tauren are pieceful in nature, the rights of the great hunt are venerated as the heart of their spiritual culture. As a tribesman of Mulgore, you must test your skills in the wild and proof yourself in the great hunt.
Bound to the iron will of the tyrant Lich King, the vast Undead armies of the Scourge seek to eradicate all life on Azeroth. Led by the Banshee Sylvanas Windrunner a group of renegades broke away from the Scourge and freed themselves of the Lich Kings domination. Known by some as the Forsaken, this group fights a constant battle, not only to retain its freedom from the Scourge, but also to slaughter those who would hunt them as monsters. With Sylvanas as their Banshee King, the Forsaken have built a dark stronghold beneath the ruins of Lordaerons former capital city. This hidden Undercity forms a sprawling labyrinth that stretches beneath the haunted woods of the Tirisfal Glades. Though the very land is cursed, the zealous humans of the Scarlet Crusade still cling to their scattered holdings, obsessed with eradicating the Undead and retaking their homeland. Convinced that the primitive races of the Horde can help them achieve victory over their enemies, the Forsaken have entered an alliance of convenience. Harboring no true loyalty for their new allies, they will go to any lengths to ensure their dark plans come to fruition. As one of the Forsaken, you must massacre any who pose a threat to the new order – human, undead or otherwise.
The vicious Trolls that populate the numerous jungle isles of the south seas are renowned for their cruelty and dark mysticism. Barbarous and supersticious, they carry a seething hatred for all other races. Long since exile from its ancestral homeland in Stranglethorn Vale, the Darkspear Tribe was nearly destroyed by rampaging Murlocs. Rescued by the young Warchief Thrall and his Orcisch Warriors. The Darkspear Tribe swore allegiance to the Horde. Led by the cunning shadow hunter Vol’jin. The Darkspears now make their home in Durotar along with their Orcisch allies. As one of the only surviving Darkspears, it falls to you to reclaim the glory of your tribe.
