Knowing your Lore: List of Useful Links

This article is a stub, you can help by expanding it.
This article needs more details/information/content.
IMPORTANT: GUIDELINES FOR EDITING! Only links which leads to sites telling something about the following are allowed: The history of the races (both playable and non-playable). The history and lore of the dungeons and their interaction with the history of warcraft. The history and lore behind the different areas in and outside of Azeroth. Also description of the chapters of warcrafts history already listed are allowed. If something on the list are missing. Or if you think you know a good addition to the guide PM me or leave a comment!

Knowing your Lore is gonna be the final product of a little brainstorming about what I could do, to spread the knowledge of Warcraft's Lore and history.
My thoughts about Warcraft Lore/history is that many people don't know what its about. Practically its like running around your hometown without knowing the name of it.

This guide will provide you with direct links leading you to the more/less informational sites out on the big internet. In that way the guide is aiming for making it easy for everyone left behind to catch up with the storyline and understanding their place in the world.

Haha, it was a while ago when I added it, but I really like how the picture turned out. I think the font was perfect!

War is not about who is right, it is about who is left.
