here is a small Excel files with a lot of information about the heros, especially a statistical analysis of their combat and movement cards.
By example : Thalin have 28 shield on his melee cards, that is nearly 4 times what the other got, but he isn't the one that hit harder, that's Eometh, even if he need more Strength by card.
Every "hill" movement cards of the Elf are on his 5 melee cards.
Elanor is doing in average a lot less than half the other 4 heros damage, but she is the only one that got the escape card.
Thalins starting quest are between 4 and 10!! location away, that is more than double that the longuest distance of the others Heros, by coparation, the ranger only have to go 2 or 3 location.
