I think that’s a fair view.
I’ve got my own ideas for how it could pan out. Hear me out-
We focus on a Human kingdom, flying the familiar banners of the Alliance. Rolling hills pepper the landscape, lush with trees and lakes. This is a time of relative peace and growth.
We move to a band of human soldiers who are in combat with a rag-tag foe, a new creature we have not seen before. The knights are lead by a sparky young Hero, seeking to make a name for himself. The enemy speaks in gutteral cries, and signals a retreat. More of these attacks have persisted over the months, and there still is no knowledge of where these creatures come from.
The hero is tasked by the king to form an advanced scouting party to find the source of this new threat. From here, we’re introduced to other young new heroes, the ideal RPG adventurer party. In the name of the Alliance, they set out on their journey.
As the Scouting Party gets closer to the source of the Creatures, they find out that they are not wholly of this world. They are coming through a strange portal, and that they are aiming to summon a greater force into the realm; the Burning Legion.
As the Heroes witness the demons being summoned, mounted troops waving the Alliance banner storm in and attack the enemy and the Demons. But how? The Hero is the first to know of this location. Did the king know of this place? Were they being followed by the army? But as he looks closer, he realizes this is not the same banner of the Alliance that he has. It is a different one, emblazoned with golden light.
The Scouting party returns to the King and reports all that followed. The king thinks deeply on this news, and reveals to the heroes the history of their kingdom. They are the descendants of the Sons of Lother who travelled into Draenor to stop Ner’zhul. The survivors escaped into a portal to this world established a new kingdom, which has lasted a thousand years in peace.
From here, the Hero embarks on a journey to find this alternate Alliance who has entered their realm, and find out more about them. We learn of the history of the Alliance and the Horde through the eyes of a new Hero unknown to either, but familiar with it all through his own stories and legends, passed down generation by generation.
As he joins the ranks of this new Army of Light, we embark on a new adventure reaching across worlds: Warcraft 4.
