1. You know, like Alleria, mad for vengeance, and all that.

2. No, I don't mean the Forsaken, they wouldn't exist in such a scenario. You'd need to write The Frozen Throne a bit differently, that's hardly an issue.

I guess the bits with Crusaders and Rangers were in one of those German previews?

And what do you mean by Not the Forsaken? Wouldn't they have its premise (that is, Undead who revolted against the Lich King)?

Yeah, the Crusaders were described somewhat as fanatical holy warriors in the GameStar preview.

Anyway, by the Forsaken, I specifically mean Sylvanas, her regime, and all their actions (Sylvanas invented the name, anyway). By no Forsaken, I mean a faction of free-willed undead not lead by Sylvanas, with a clearly different path than the Forsaken had taken.

I'd presume they'd be "humans with a skin condition". At least you wouldn't have the problem of Alliance humans dying, reanimating, and immediately fighting against their allies from a few seconds ago (and taking orders from their enemy from a few seconds ago) despite supposedly being free-willed.

I think that "humans with a skin condition" (oh, Fojar), is taking it too far, but yeah, the basis would be some version of perverted Lordaeron that is actually Lordaeron. As in, these undead, while certainly traumatized and their spirits scarred, would not immediately forget their old allegiances, families, culture, etc.

And how? Frankly, there's a myriad of ways how to write that, ranging from what you suggested, Arthas becoming the king and transforming Lordaeron into this dark-light undead/human realm, to simple rewrites of The Frozen Throne's undead campaign.

But we are getting quite off-topic here.

Not sure if this is news to you, but I once made a pretty comprehensive list of Warcraft 3 prerelease videos:

And a gallery of screenshots, sorted as accurately as I could back in the days:
