To paraphrase Greg's answer to the question of why heroes are so hard in Dragon Pass

  1. 'Cos they're hard
  2. 'Cos they've got their mates with them

I really don't like the idea of superhard lone heroes and I don't see much indication that this is established Gloranthan fact. Sure lots of heroes AND THEIR FRIENDS can mow down armies, but the companions are an important part of this. I really want the rule system to reflect this, and I think it would be a shame if hero wars doesn't.

Roland and various others that have been quoted here are a case in point - they had their companions with them.
