    There are a few spelling errors and a couple of typos at the end there.
    A few of you also pointed out some errors on my part:
    ---Dalaran was in fact North West of Strom. that point is moot now that its in Northrend, but still an error nonetheless.
    ---The Dwarves emerged form Uldaman, not Uldum as I posted.
    thanks for pointing these out to me

    Also, I started this long before The Guide contest was announced. I took a very long time pouring through the long and drawn-out lore story to try and gleam as much information form it as possible in the shortest of forms. True, its not very 'guidey' but thats because I wasn't going to change my format for the contest when I had already done most of the work. Sure, there was some copy and paste, but this was by no means easy to do. It was not easy to cram so much lore so tightly together. I may have missed a few important details because they didn't forward the story. This is for people who dont know anything of the lore, or are unsure of what they know. If you want more information on anything in this guide, go to Wowpedia.org.

    The layout is beautiful...very well done. It really adds a lot to the great job you did telling the story. If you just read the text your missing out. The troll who said something about needing a table of contents really misses the point that this is a work of art not a some silly term paper. Any further comments by the trolls jealousy should be ignored.

    Again AMAZING JOB ALL AROUND!!

    I very well know you have good intent and meant it to be a pseudo skim, I just like to point out flaws.

    I am aware sometimes I dont include apostrophes. My work keyboard is missing the button. Let it go.

    Thx for this Guide!

    Even though I've read most of the WoWwiki lore pages, I still appreciate your efforts for trying to make people who don't care/know much about the Warcraft universe understand it a little bit better.
    One of the main reasons I'm playing WoW is because of the lore.

    Very good read, a few typos but nothing extremely major. Coming into this, I didn't really know much about the lore. I knew about the things that have intrigued me, but this helped fill a lot of loose gaps I never knew. Thanks!

    Yah, Blizzard should thought this stuff out.

    It's posts like this that restore a little bit of faith for me in to the player base.

    Though I still feel that almost all the lore they created with WoW is terrible in comparison to everything they wrote for Warcraft 1 through 3, including the conflicting nature of Warcraft I and Warcraft II's campaingn structure.
