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 Inquisitors of Malvernis have taken an interest in the city of Craclaw, and the Overlords court their deadly power. The Overlords desire control and power, enough to sacrifice anything, even their own lives, to gain power that none can withstand. Ashkrypt, an Overlord and Lich, will use the Inquisitors to get what he wants, and then he will discard them, as he does with the people of Craclaw. There is power to be taken in Taltos, and the Overlords know the strengths and weaknesses of their enemies. They lead armies intent to control the people of the land, and will give no quarter to any that oppose them.
Like most officers in the armies of the Overlords, Andras has high aspirations. He knows that the most likely way for him to climb to the ranks of the Aristocracy is through success on the battlefield. The son of an aristocrat, Andras began his fighting days after extensive training, for unlike the rest of Craclaw, social status means little in military affairs. Merely being the son of an aristocrat will not give you the skills to lead men to victory, and on the battlefield, that is all that really counts. One thing the military and the Aristocracy do have in common is the cutthroat nature with which officers climb the ranks. It is not uncommon for commanders with ambitious junior officers waiting in the wings to die of mysterious battle wounds. When in battle, one always watches one's back, even when safely behind one's own lines.
