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.
Saramonde grew up sharing her father's love of history, strategy and the art of warfare, and she might have become a Knight if her path as a Chronicler had not been so very clear. When the Tower of the Dawn was taken in Taltos, the imminent making of legends was too tempting; she sailed for the southern lands as soon as she could charter a boat, talked her way into the Ivy Crown headquarters in Blackguard Cove, charmed the boots off of everyone she met, and proposed an addendum to the plan to retake the Tower. A lesser man might have bridled, but Gerard knew talent when he saw it.
Saramonde is not afraid to venture into danger, and she not only carries a blade, but knows how to use it. Whenever Gerard wishes to send Templar support and the conservative voices cry out against it, he merely sends her to record the battle, which of course necessitates sending a bodyguard of Templar Knights. The Chronicler isn't about to complain; not only does she get to witness battles in person, but she gets to write about them afterward, which is just about Saramonde's definition of paradise.
