- Does anyone know whether improvement in the abilities of your nobles
basically just depends on the passage of time (plus allocating Sacred
Time magic to Heroism once that becomes an option, and of course as a
benefit of Heroquesting and as the result of certain events) or if it
is also affected by the activities undertaken by that noble?
For example, do nobles on the Ring progress more quickly than other
nobles? Does raiding every Fire Season improve the combat rating of
your war leader (or all your nobles) more quickly than raiding every
other Fire Season? Does sending a particular noble on trading or
diplomacy missions or out exploring improve any of their abilities
faster than nobles who stay at home?
In my current game I have my best bargainer, an Issaries worshipper,
on the Ring. I also have another Issaries worshipper whose bargaining
skills are slightly lower but who has better leadership, magic, and
combat skills than the first guy. I generally send the second guy out
exploring, and often send him on trade and diplomatic missions as
well, keeping the best bargainer home on the Ring to give advice and
deal with situations requiring his skills. But I'm wondering if it
would be better to send the first guy out instead if this would give
him more chances to gain experience and improve his skills?

with practice. And go down with old age (though pretending
to be an old fool can help bargaining). Now ask yourself:
does a stay-at-home noble get more bargaining practice than
a wandering explorer? OK, a useless equivalent question,
reminding me of various failed math proofs at school :-).

experience. Another way is to have the leader you want to improve hero quest
on the quest which will improve that skill. That will improve the leader
