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.
Sir Ian is part of what the forces of the Ivy Crown at Denelspire laughingly refer to as "Her Ladyship's Artillery." Though there are indeed a few engineers skilled in the crafting of siege towers and firing of war machines present, the joke comes from the fact that most of the regiment is composed of mages, and mages in numbers. The Artillery is a good part of the reason why the Ivy Crown in Taltos have such a reputation, and like most of his fellows Ian is pleased to be feared by the enemy even if it makes his life a little more dangerous on the field of battle.
The mages of the Order are quite different, anyway, from the scholarly wizards of legend; they have chosen to use their abilities in the war against evil, and their primary targets are often enemy mages. Such practitioners of magic who have chosen to walk the dark path of Necromancy especially offend them, and any of these in an opposing force may well find themselves singled out for what the Artillery refer to as "target practice".
