Those books are interesting. They don't really disagree with or get superceded by anything written later, and they add a whole new dimension to play. I've not used either, but I plan to quite soon (I'm running through Dara Happa Stirs, will be an interesting way to give the players a feel for the broader scale politics they are becoming a part of). 

Legendary Abilities certainly would make quite reasonable heroquest abilities.
