My favorite Raid in WoW, probably because it was the first raid I got to experience right when it came out.

Once, forest trolls controlled a vast swath of Lordaeron. Their empire was called Zul'Aman, and the current area known as Zul'Aman was their power center. Many centuries ago, high elves and humans allied to defeat the empire and drove the trolls to near extinction. Now, the tiny area in northeastern Lordaeron is all that remains of the trolls' continent-spanning empire. In the intervening years, the trolls gave up their imperialist mindset, though they protect their small territory jealously. Warbands patrol the forest, slaying all living (and undead) creatures that are not trolls or natural forest beasts. They worship ancient deities, though whether these deities are the mythic old gods or some strange creation of their voodoo witch doctors is unknown.

Though the trolls' empire was destroyed in antiquity, they have always controlled the sprawling forest now called Zul'Aman. Their dominion once stretched across the continent, and they threatened the nascent human nations and the fledgling kingdom of Quel'Thalas with extinction. Eventually, the high elves traded arcane knowledge to the humans for help in defeating the trolls, and the two races bludgeoned the forest troll empire. Now Zul'Aman is reduced to its present borders. The trolls have never been content with this setback and have never forgiven the humans or elves for their near genocide. With Lordaeron and Quel'Thalas in ruins, the trolls move out to reclaim their kingdom.

Any trolls encountered try to kill on sight. Explorers need to be careful. Explorers are not totally without allies in Zul'Aman. Several bands of high elves, survivors from Quel'Thalas, fled south and now wander throughout the forest. Those who stay one step ahead of the trolls survive; those who do not are dead (and probably eaten by the cannibalistic trolls). Scourge patrols, hunting the elven refugees, also stalk through the land.

The forest troll kingdom of Zul'Aman is a dark, primal woodland. The trolls' voodoo energies permeate the climate and ancient, stepped ziggurats rise above the canopy. The forest troll empire once stretched across the continent, and with both Lordaeron and Quel'Thalas in ruins the forest trolls send patrols in all directions to expand their territory and recreate their kingdom. Warlord Jin'zakk commands the trolls, and his witch doctors and shamans provide magic support.
