Proposed Canon

Warlord is a unit that has Leadership abilityErf-b1-p044Same-site.PNGErf-b1-p094Same-site.PNG. That special (or natural) ability allows Warlords to lead other units in combat and grant a bonus to units under their command.


On some occasions terms Warlord and Commander are used interchangeably.Erf-b1-p044Same-site.PNG

However, Commander is a more general term since Casters are Commanders tooErf-b1-p094Same-site.PNG, but they do not have Leadership ability.


Infantry units can be promoted to warlord in the capital (although at a high cost).Erf-b1-p048Same-site.PNG


Apparently, warlords can be trained in cities.

Apparently, Chief Warlord is not a separate class, but rather a subclass of Warlord. Overlord seems to be a separate class of units (Overlords grant units in their stack a bonusErf-b1-p127Same-site.PNG, but it is not clear whether that bonus comes from Leadership ability or as a result of some special rule).
