I certainly never said that. I apologize if you could take anything I said as an allusion to it.

I entirely agree. If the players make it their story to take down Harrek, they should be able to.

But... For most of us, the story is not about taking down Harrek. If we don't choose to make ourselves major characters in Harrek's saga, I do think he is essentially unbeatable.

But... It's a game with chance involved. Maybe dice will dictate that the characters are part of his story after all. (They'll no doubt have to use hero points as well, a way the game specifies that players can choose story lines.)

Again: the default story role for Harrek is to be an invincible force of nature. But players can choose a different story role.
