Character Leaving Demoralized Unit

[from Roger Books]

The Rule

When a character attached to a demoralized unit leaves that unit, the unit must make a morale check, with the character's rally bonus as a negative modifier.


A character can move off from a unit to join another, say to try to help them rally better (unless either unit is a monster or dragon). This is no big deal if the unit isn't demoralized. However, when a hero or general abandons a unit that's already in trouble, it's likely to further degrade their morale.

With this rule, having your general abandon your double-demoralized unit probably means they are going to break, which I think models things well.
