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.
Like Ammat, the Chosen exist in a state on the verge of madness. They exist as tragic remnants of defiled bodies and plundered tombs. The Chosen retain more of their sanity than the Reborn and are still capable of some rational thought, though often plagued with mental illness and subject to bouts of uncontrolled fury or depression.
The Chosen came from many of the warriors and captains of the ancient Hakiri lords and serve now in the same capacity, leading bands of Khamsin or ever-living in the service of Sokar. Dozens of Chosen can often be found in the largest of the defiled tombs, all servants of the same lord, himself now ground to dust and his name scattered to the wind.
