There are a few other considerations to take into account as an Orc. These primary have to do with the beginning of Warcraft 3. It seems that Blizzard wanted to change the Orcs as a whole and not all the threads made connections so you'll have to assume or ignore things. One, is that Thrall collected the clans in a relatively short amount of time (perhaps Blizzard originally only intended for some of the clans to be liberated). This amount of time may be as short as a couple of days, a feat which would have been impossible to do when considering travel time alone (not to mention the guards, armies, etc in the way). Another thing, is that no horrible things have been shown about the internment camps (unless stated in a one of the novels). There are some exceptions like that of Thrall but the camps under the control the alliance as a whole, probably didn't have slavery (forced labor). The Orc's lethargy combined with the rising costs of the camps suggest that labor was not involved (slavery has usually been associated with profit). Though other things could be assumed since the Orcs had been very violent and bloodthirsty for quite some time. Revenge by their caretakers would be easy to imagine. Lastly, the current state of the Orcs. Although they no longer carry the demonic bloodthirst (for the most part), their actions do continue on. Bloody arenas and slavery are common (as shown in recent comics). But when one has grown up with nothing but, old habits can be hard to break. As an orc, you'll have to keep in mind that your society is in a huge state of transition. These bloodthirsty urges are still present but you are trying to learn a new way of life (or not).

These are all good points. Thanks for adding that.

Oh, also for those RPing a frostwolf, your homeland (er.. the land they currently occupy in the eastern kingdoms), was originally under the control of a human kingdom called Alterac. This kingdom betrayed the alliance and sided with the horde. They were eventually wiped out (by the alliance and i think the horde too). So your clan has claimed the area of Alterac, but there will be humans who are part of the original alterac, or allies (or the alliance themselves), that will vie (sp?) for control of the area.

Alc: Don't worry, you spelled "vie" correctly. Also, those were great posts!
