I missed that one.  Ooo-er, it's a good idea!  "War-lord" in
English is first cited to 1856 by the OED.  "Wardens" were medieval
officials in northern England (and Wales too?), responsible for
defence of the Scots border (Welsh border / area?).

I might also suggest "Marshal" or "Constable", but the former has
SCA connotations and the latter real-world ones.  "Warden" ...
an excellent choice.  Many thanks, Charles!

For whatever its worth, I also like the title of Wardens. Its just so, well,
