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 Sisters Of The Blade are a close-knit sorority containing some of the finest Soldiers known. They fight for glory, honor, fidelity... and money. Mostly, they fight for money. When standard footmen just won't do, The Blade's swords are sharper, their shields sturdier, and their valor legendary.
Tales of the brutal unrest in Taltos have spread far across the land, along with rumors of uncountable wealth for the bold. From the far North, Nicole has come at the head of an all-female mercenary troupe known as the Sisters Of The Blade. Though remarkably young for her position, Nichole's long list of victorious campaigns is more than enough to quell any detractors, and her troops follow her command without hesitation. She views Taltos as a rough, freely-bleeding wound on the face of the land, one that can be staunched by applying adequate pressure to the points that require it. Of course, like all things, that pressure will come with a fitting price attached.
