 Other Rules clarifications
Hero is not the most interesting card in the Page family. It is usually played only once per player per game, because it's an essential step from Warrior to Champion. After obtaining your Champion, other Travellers from the Page line should usually be kept as Warriors, as the extra draw is more than welcome after all the Treasure gaining. Also, opponents without a Champion might be afflicted by the Warrior's attack.
Since Hero can gain any Treasure in the game, it becomes a lot stronger on Colony boards, since gaining Platinum suddenly becomes an option. In these cases, you might want to get a Hero or two after all. Some other reasons to pursue Hero include strong (Engine-friendly) kingdom treasures, such as Horn of Plenty and Counterfeit. Hero is also able to gain a Philosopher's Stone without first getting a Potion, but this is of limited usefulness, because most of the time you're playing Hero, you're playing an engine; Philosopher's Stone is not very strong in an engine.
