Warlord takes place in the war-torn land of Taltos in the world of Adon. The region of Taltos is a place of dry, blistering summers and mild winters with various local leaders and their forces battling for control of their own destinies. They battle for the power to become Warlords and becoming legends by their own hand - some are just and fair while others are cruel and capricious. Life in Taltos is brutal, but there is a fortune to be made and eternal fame to be won.
The almost-forgotten god Sokar has awakened from his great sleep. He has remembered the oaths of the warriors of ages past who bound their souls to serve him throughout eternity. Sokar has summoned his greatest servants back from the lands of the dead. The greatest of them, Khufu, the supreme priest-king of the Sokari, again leads his people into the Mehet Hesep - the Northern Gardens - where Sokar will rule again. Together with the Khamsin, a tribe that has never forgotten the ways of Sokar, Khufu will restore the cities of old, recover the plundered temples of his people, and repay the injuries of the outsiders to his Kingdom. Sokar has risen, and so has the desert itself.
The Devourers are the bloody forces of mighty Ammat herself. They are made from the souls who endured the same sort of madness that Ammat underwent when her body was burned. Unlike the Reborn, the Devourers have within them an insatiable hunger. Where the Reborn are content to do battle for Sokar and the Mesha Sokar, the Devourers wish to punish and consume their enemies right down to their immortal spirits.
Devourers are the result of a dreadful collaboration between Netikerti and Ammat. Netikerti seeks forever to perfect the arts of the war golems and Ammat desires troops who share her unique affliction. The result is an ever-increasing force of war golems based upon the Great Crocodile who are eternally ravenous and willing to do anything to sate their thirst.
The Devourers are living weapons, each nearly the match of a Reborn warrior. In addition to the blades they carry, the giant crocodile maws can snap shut with incredible force, shattering bone and rending flesh. The Devourers rarely stop to consume their foes in the heat of battle, but the scenes in the aftermath of melee can make even the most jaded of the ever-living turn away.
