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 courts of the northern forests have ignored the pleas for aid as the Princes of Almirithil watched the horrors around them grow. Now, Prince Danithal has mustered the strongest and noblest of his people from across Adon to serve him and help restore the realm. With their natural gifts and the protection of the very land that they serve, the elves of Almirithil stand strong, proud, and ready to face the challenge of taming the beasts that have infested Taltos. Beautiful and shadowy, the elves are well trained and well prepared for the battles ahead, and Prince Danithal will not fail in his duty to his land and his people.
