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.
Valandil's first passion is the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake. He spends long days in his study, pouring over the scrolls and books that the Chroniclers of Denelspire bring to him in an endless stream. Though at times he might seem lazy or callous for his immersion in words over people, in reality Valandil does not mind exerting himself; it's more that battlefields are messy places where one invariably has a hard time laying hands on a good cup of tea, and really, the efforts of the opposing mages to call down fire upon a unit under his protection are so very tiresome.
The Arch-Mage is certainly a reluctant warrior, and slow to anger, but when something truly offends him the aftermath is inevitably spectacular; the last enemy mage who managed to get a spell past Valandil's defenses found himself a smoking pile of cinders soon afterward, along with most of the unit he sheltered in.
