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.
Sent to Craclaw by the Grand Inquisitor himself, Arik Gix is the eyes and ears of the Dark Brotherhood in Craclaw. Pure evil permeates his soul, and the hand of Khardullis truly is upon the Ambassador of the Empire to Taltos. Though he has been among them for only a short time, Arik already has the measure of the Aristocracy of Craclaw, and the vipers' nest which is the political climate of the black city. Not only will Arik be able to survive in this environment, but he views the power struggles as amateurish, seeing only the few at the upper echelons as any threat to him. These truly powerful nobles are also too intelligent to make any move against the Ambassador from the Empire of Malvernis, especially when they can gain so much more by building a rapport with the man. Though Arik cares little for the politics of Craclaw, he is not without his ambitions. Should he be able to hand control of Craclaw to the Grand Inquisitor, it would he an unimaginable boost to his personal power within the Dark Brotherhood. Khardullis rewards those who serve him faithfully, and Arik can only smile when he thinks of what the reward would be for delivering to him an entire continent.
