This book takes the hero band rules from HeroQuest and puts them into practice. Each of the 27 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 ten 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 (merchants, entertainers, etc.), and magicians.
