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.
In the days of Ancient Hakir, strength measured a man's worth. By that estimation, Khadath could have purchased much of the empire with his sword arm alone. Originally of low birth, the only tools he had to earn his keep were his mind and his blades.
Khadath made his name fighting against barbarian hordes that regularly raided his province from the southern hinterlands. A natural leader, he gathered about him great legions and 'annexed' several neighboring provinces. War with the Pharaoh seemed inevitable, but Khadath surrendered his swords to the mighty magician king and swore his undying fealty.
In his later days he converted to the worship of Sokar and eventually found his rest in the Mehet Nesep like so many of Hakir's nobility. Sokar's return has brought him up from his tomb to serve as a leader in the Mesha Sokar. Nothing could please Khadath more. Khadath does not enjoy killing in and of itself, but the thrill of battle stirs his mummified soul like nothing else.
