Ok, working on my race at the moment but I have a few questions- How does the hero come into the actual battling? Will it be possible for him to be killed off or will he get an attack/spell per round like in Heroes but only die if his army does? I'm just trying to work out how important things like AC, HP and AB are for the hero.
On a similar vein, how important will Hero skills be? Will things like diplomacy, intimidate, spot etc be critical to how the army operates or will they pretty much take a back bench?
