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 falcon-headed statues dedicated to Sokar Himself do not exist as mere decorations. Like the walking Avatars of Sokar's servants, His Avatar can come to life, animated by an infinitesimal portion of Sokar's own ka.
The sight of their own god on the battlefield is incredibly inspiring to the Khamsin and ever-living. The mere presence of Sokar's Avatar can turn the tide of battle firmly in favor of the Mesha Sokar, even when vastly outnumbered.
Sokar does not send His Avatar to the battlefield as a mere observer. The Avatar's power outstrips those of even the other Great Servants. Wherever the gaze of the mighty falcon falls, foes have been known to burst into flames, seared to their very souls by the intensified light of the eternal sun.
The Avatar never speaks nor directs His forces on the field. In this capacity, Sokar acts purely as an enforcer, Himself a servant to the commanders He holds in such high esteem. The presence of an Avatar of Sokar in an army is always regarded as a sign of respect and trust that Sokar places in His faithful.
On extremely rare occasion, the Avatar of Sokar will accompany non-Khamsin and ever-living into battle. In such cases, it is assumed that the mercenaries or other forces in question are pursuing some goal which Sokar Himself would see done. In other cases the Avatar simply appears, fights, and vanishes back across the Great River, it's purpose known only to Sokar Himself.
