I've always thought that the circumnavigation epic would make a great story arc for the Hero Wars line. Vikings/Pirates/Argonauts/Sinbad the RW material to draw on is so rich. Travel the world, meet interesting people, and kill them. And it leads surviving heroes into the Hero Wars very nicely.

PS Harrek is a hero in the same sense that Conan (another killing machine) is a hero (or even Harald Hardrada, the landwaster).
