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.
For all their suffering the Chosen are the lucky ones. The Reborn are truly abominations, having spent so much time without a place for their souls to rest. They have truly gone mad, and only the respite offered by the form of a war golem has given them any peace.
For the Reborn there is only service and battle. They follow the orders of those blessed by Sokar for their service in the Mesha Sokar, and no other. They can be fooled, however, as their cognitive powers are nearly non-existent. Powerful wizards and clerics can fashion charms to deceive the Reborn into taking orders from anyone bearing the charm. Such affronts are not to be suffered, and the Khamsin take great pleasure in punishing those who would presume to usurp Sokar's will for their own selfish purposes.
The Reborn come in many different shapes and sizes depending on the crafter of the war golem their spirits ride. Regardless, they excel in battle and follow their orders to perfection. However, large hosts of the Reborn are never found, as they lack personal initiative and reasoning capability.
