Sigh. I REALLY like the beast rider concept, but this issue drives me nuts every time it comes up. Why not just have the mount use the medium stats until 7, which it then gets the large stats. RAW, I simply CANNOT play a concept that has the same mount from 1 to 20, unless I choose a small character. Who ever could think this was a good idea!?
Well, for a home game where our whole team played some variation of mounted character, the dm let me use the medium stats but have a large wolf for my mounted fury barb. I really don't see a problem with it in a home game. Does anyone have any particular reason against this? What I mean to say has anyone had any experience where this made things unbalanced or had some mechanical problem to it?
