These are the sort of actions you take in the overworld, a game mode that is concerned with what's happening to the world at large, outside of your heroes' perspective. It's a space to determine the behavior of factions, create global story tags that can be used in all game modes, and simulate large-scale conflict (such as wars between said factions). In overworld play, individual heroes are represented as commanders on the battlefield.
