The primary setting for the Warcraft RPG is the period following the Third War and the events that played out in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne. Yet the history of Azeroth is rich and full of adventure. Long before the Horde and the Alliance, the Kaldorei discovered magic and built a legendary empire that crumbled against the might of the Burning Legion in the War of the Ancients, and the disgraced Quel'dorei braved the Maelstrom to find a new land where they could explore the ways of magic. Little is known of the dwarves in this era, though some records indicate that they had stone hides (or "rock skin") and seemed more "elemental" in nature. An underground war was fought in the shadows to prevent the return of the demons to the world of the living.
