As a couple others have noted, I can't really imagine any of the groups I've played with being satisfied with most players being followers to one player's leader.

Regarding "training for the Hero Wars" - does everyone know they're coming and when? Are there billboards everywhere - "Only 330 more adventuring days until the Hero Wars"? Or is it just common knowledge that "the old world is dying", but people don't really know when the end will come, ala Rangranock? Or is it only the Heroes who see it coming? (Or learn of it during their adventures, like in "Three Hearts and Three Lions"?)
