World of Warcraft - Siege of Lordaeron

“All over Azeroth there is a call to arms. The time has come for the Alliance to hold Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner and her horde accountable for the innocent victims in Teldrassil - and to regain possession of the former human city of Lordaeron. The Horde, on the other hand, is faced with the task of defending the Undercity, the home of the Forsaken, against the Alliance and keeping their bastion in the Eastern Kingdoms. "
