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.
Long have the Knights of the Temple guarded the Chroniclers at Denelspire. Oathbound to remain steadfast guardians and take no action, they watched as evil festered and grew at their doorstep. Denelspire was invaded, and Duke Gerard returned to retake the Citadel and make the land safe for the people once more. Now the guardians of Denelspire have become the instrument of the heavens, destined to rout the evil that has permeated the land. By their faith and by their swords they will return stability to Taltos, for they have taken an oath to serve peace, and Gerard has shown that peace comes only after the war has been won.
A loud, good natured man, Halbarad is typical of the priests of Aurellius at the Tower of the Dawn. He has adopted the Taltain view that pain and death come soon enough, and there is no need to court them before that time; thus, his voice is often heard raised in song or sermon. The telling of a good joke is his greatest pleasure, and second to that the telling of a good story. He does not distinguish between the needs of Templar, Ivy Crown, Devoted or refugee, and can be found almost anywhere at all hours, often raising a pint and the spirits of those around him. In many ways he reminds Gerard of his grandfather Etienne, and he certainly possesses the gift of being at ease in any company.
An optimist at heart, Halbarad is a staunch opponent of naysayers who claim that Taltos would be better off without Crusader intervention. His presence often inspires Crusader forces on the battlefield, as his deep voice changes from uplifting sermon to a roar of battle-fury upon sight of the enemy.
