Orcs were once a race enslaved by the Burning legion, the orcs are now a shamanistic empire lead by the mighty Thrall. They threw off their chains of enslavement by demons after the humans began to imprison them. The prophet Medivh warned Thrall of a coming doom and instructed him to flee to Kalimdor, which he did. upon arrival on the new continent, Thrall founded to land of Durotar, named after his father Durotan, and laid the capital of Orgrimmar.
Tauren are a tribal people who have been on Kalimdor for ages. They had been in a constant state of war with other local races such as the centaur and the quilboars. When Thrall came to Kalimdor he helped the tauren free their land of Mulgore from the centaurs, therefore binding them in a lasting friendship. The Tauren are lead by the chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof from their capital of Thunder Bluff.
Trolls have been separated into several tribes for a long time. There are the jungle trolls, the forest trolls, and the ice trolls. Each are known as such for the environment they have adapted the most to. The Darkspear tribe of jungle trolls are another of Thrall's close friends, due to the fact that he saved them when they were attacked and nearly driven extinct by their own brethren. They have no capital city, but are led by Vol'jin, son of Sen'jin, one of their most powerful leaders, one of Thralls earliest companions.
Undead are another group divided. They are separated into two groups, Arthas' Scourge and Lady Sylvanas' Forsaken. When Arthas ascended to into a death knight, he lead a campaign against the High Elves. He utterly destroyed their lands and turned their military lead, Sylvanas into a banshee. unfortunately, she was still able to think for herself. When the Lich King's will was broken, she separated her force from Arthas's and carved out a kingdom from the Plaguelands and founded to Undercity underneath the former capital of Lordaeron in Tirisfal Glades.
Blood Elves are a new playable race for Horde. They are descendents of the once powerfully arcane addicted High Elves. They were prosperous until Arthas carved a bloody path to the capital of Silvermoon and destroyed it, along with most of the High Elves. The survivors were led by Prince Kael'Thas who named them Blood Elves in honor of their fallen homeland. Kael'Thas eventually betrayed his own people when he joined forces with Illidan and the Burning Legion.
