Lordaeron is one of the northernmost subcontinents on the landmass known as the Eastern Kingdoms. It lies between the elven land of Quel'thalas and the dwarven land of Khaz'modan. Lordaeron consists of eight zones, four human nations, a dwarven settlement, and troll villages. Although, a large amount of its inhabitants are Undead, some remaining from the Scourge, and others spreading from the Forsaken Queendom beneath Capital City, the Undercity.
Lordaeron is divided into eight parts, which include Tirisfal Glades, the Silverpine Forest, Gilneas, the Hillsbrad Foothills, the Arathi Highlands, the Hinterlands, and the Western and Eastern Plaguelands.
