Hi all, I was just interested to get your thoughts on those fantasy novels that feature a group of mercenaries/soldiers/heroes. I personally really enjoy reading this sort of stuff. I think having a group, whether its the Fellowship from LOTR or Glen Cook's Black Company, makes for a really great read. I can't quite put my finger on why, but I almost feel as if I become a member of them and I invest much more in the story. What do you guys think?
