This world could be a resemblance of our real earth world at medieval times. There are three big continents in Azeroth with cities, villages, castles and dungeons, forests, rivers and all sorts of structures.
There are also a lot of entities in the world of warcraft. Each of the three continents is inhabited by different races. For example in the eastern continent lies the kingdom of the Alliance of the humans the gnomes and the dwarves. Kalidmor on the other hand, which is one more of the continents, is the home of the evil orcs and trolls. The orcs and the trolls along with another race called the taurens, form the Horde. The Alliance and the Horde are in constant war.
When you start the game you have to choose sides. You will either join the forces of the Alliance or the forces of the Horde.
