About that, "your character is not all knowing" ... I'm commonly quite confused what is common knowledge and what's not. I mean, if I want to discuss the orcish history IC, how much of it has been lost to time, or would some things even be told to a non-orc? Like, is it common knowledge who was the first one to drink demon blood, is Thrall's history commonly known, so on and so on - things you'd figure someone would know, but aren't sure what the common populace is expected to know?The fact that some lore is contradictory or barely explained at best doesn't help either - like Anasterian dying fighting the Scourge and being somewhere upwards of 4,000-5,000 years old - some 12 times older than the average high elf lifespan according to other information.

I'd imagine it would be much like what the average person knows about his or her country's history. For example, almost every American child knows that Lincoln freed the slaves, and Columbus discovered America, but how many know the deeper truths? I'm sure the average orc knows that Thrall helped free their people and who broke the blood curse, but as far as deeper than that, I would doubt it.

If I'm not sure I say my character read it in a book once.
