Anyone interested in adding a footnote, or creating an entirely new page, on the Raglan Hero scale and the Golden Bough. Used at least in Dune, possibly Star Wars, and a whole lot of other works besides. Refer to: http://www.moongadget.com/origins/dune.html

... no? Can't really find a reason that would really merit mentioning here, but if you wouldn't mind explaining maybe it could be considered.

Never mind, have submitted YKTTW. But to answer your question, As with the Hero's Journey, the Hero scale is an attempt to, sort of like, define a hero on a point scale, based on the criteria met on the scale.

I feel there should be a note that most mythologists consider Campbell's theory to be without merit and it is mostly the entertainment industry that considers it worthwhile.

It does serve as a decent framework for writing stories...less so for analyzing them.
