Question regarding the background story of the fantasy computer game series Warcraft from Blizzard Entertainment.

A series of Real-Time-Strategy (RTS) computer games (Warcraft, Warcraft II and Warcraft III) and the Massively-Multiplayer-Online Role-Playing-Game (MMO-RPG) World of Warcraft. All games are from Blizzard Entertainment, have (multiple) expansions and feature a continuos fantasy background and history which draws from many science-fiction and fantasy sources like Warhammer, J.R.R. Tolkien and H.P. Lovecraft among others.

There are also a lot of novels, some comic books and a movie named Warcraft, released May 2016.

Questions about the (hi)story are on topic here, questions about the computer games themselves should go to Arqade under the tags [warcraft-series] or [world-of-warcraft].
