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 combination of speed and range gives the mounted archer a tremendous advantage on the battlefield. Walking troops have virtually no chance of catching them, and foot-based archers cannot outdistance a unit that can cover great distance, loose a volley, and retreat.
Mercenary companies pay only the best gold to Khamsin mounted archers, and it is not unusual for the members of such a unit to receive an excessive amount of pampering and attention. For all the benefits though, mounted archers and their steeds must continuously practice their art. Such finely honed skills need constant use lest their edge quickly dull.
