Mounts

Dazyk of Phaeros
So, now that we have mules in the game, are we any closer to seeing mounted transportation? As a casual player, I know that one of the main stop-gaps that keeps me from logging in to this game is the amount of time I waste traveling. I don't log on, many times, because, of the 1 hour I have to play, 25 to 35 minutes of that are spent going from one settlement to another (Brighthaven to Phaeros is approx. 25 minutes). So I just don't log on.

It seems like it would be a smaller tech leap to make horses function similarly to how mules do: take a horse saddle to a stable (convert 'Muleteers' to 'Stables' ), spawn a horse, then the horse has a timer and hp just like a mule. Make horses only provide a 25% or 30% increase in speed and be susceptible to all effects (stuns, slows, etc). If the horse timer runs out, or the horse reaches 0 hp, the rider is dismounted.

The same tech for mules could also be applied to horses for the differing strengths of horses, speeds, defenses, etc.

You can stand on a mule … but if someone moves it you fall off smile

Jousting would currently involve two characters on spears with stationary mules.

Edam DOES want jousting though smile

Wait… if you load up mules ALL the way, they move really slowly, yeah?

Two people have mules heavily loaded with something heavy and useless.

Two other people stand on those mules.

The mule owners begin to walk towards each other.

The other two people have to use a Bullrush attack against the other, knocking them off. If they mistime it, they might charge off the mule. If they get it right, the enemy is knocked off and they charge while still on their mule.

Jousting!

Armored Flamingo or Dire Squirrel mounts would equal take mah monies.
Give me a reasonable despot any day. Someone that constantly reminds everyone that they are virtuous and honorable can not be trusted to be either. If you are good we will know by your deeds, if you are reasonable we will know by our deals.

+1 on this. It would get me one step closer to recreating my Kingmaker campaign Cavalier! smile

No eta on mounts. Lots and lots of work required for animations and various other tech is necessary to make mounts possible.
