You guys can't base your story off the game's expansions, since they do not properly line up with the events of the "story (lore)". The reason BC started was because Illidian got bitch slapped by arthas and retreated into outland to reorganize. Arthas is currently in Northrend plotting his next move, amassing his army. Because of him, the old gods have begun to stir awake, so all those threats in the world exist. All that matters is what part your game wants to focus on.
Honestly you guys can have more fun playing a side story in the old world, a small party of adventures who bite more than they can chew. Some of the smaller factions of the game can be just as brutal, the defias, the steamweddle cartel and other goblin cities.

I'll def keep an eye on this thread and might join, but not as a lame wow shaman, as a warcraft, "I speak to the elements" shaman or as a panderan monk, traveling the world in search for drunken nirvana. Ohh and you will need a Gm to keep the story in mind, once you guys think up of one.
