From the publisher:
This book takes the hero band rules from HeroQuest and puts them into practice. Each of the twenty-seven hero bands has a purpose for being in the Dragon Pass area, where the Hero Wars will start. Most are drawn from one of the homelands featured in HeroQuest, thus allowing new players an immediate home for their heroes. Five additional sections give tips about how to play in a campaign oriented around a certain type of hero: fighters, healers, scholars, wanderers and adventurers (merchants, entertainers, etc.), and magicians.
This book has something for everyone: Donandar entertainers, draconic scholars, feuding healers, Imperial magicians, Geo's Inn, and the Slayers of Harrek. Old fans will recognize bands such as the Comet Seers, Sword Brothers, and the Temple of the Wooden Sword, old favorites given new life in this book. Old and new fans alike will enjoy the new information presented here on Dragon Pass, Glorantha, and their inhabitants.
