I'm re-reading through UJ sort of at random and came across this.
Blizzard had put out a 'Monkey Island' style adventure game version of Warcraft, if you can believe it, staring an Ork Shaman as the main character!
Now then, given nearly ten years since this was posted, we've seen the real WC3 (~3 months after this page was published) and subsequently World of Warcraft... and wouldn't you know it, one of the main characters is in fact an orc shaman. (Quite a Mary Sue of an orc shaman to boot, but that's a matter for a different forum.) A Monkey Island type game starring Thrall covering, for example, his past really isn't a huge stretch for an alternate universe.
