A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Compatible GM's RESOURCE by Mike Welham

With the possible exception of the paladin’s mount, most PCs’ mounts are just a horse with no interesting or unique features or characteristics. After all, very few GMs or players have the time to create interesting details such as the appearance, personality and traits of a mount.

So What’s The Mount Like, Anyway? banishes this problem by providing extensive notes on customising your mount. Included are tables to generate the mount’s appearance, trait and even hooks and complications. Also included are detailed notes on encumbrance, barding and even stat blocks for a variety of mounts!

I bought this because my players in Kingmaker recently aquired horses. The dwarf paladin and aasimar bard/cavalier already knew what their horses looked like, but asked for traits. The other players wanted to trust the dice for both appearance and trait.

-The aasimar bard/cavalier has a white mare with black pastern markings that look as though her hooves have been dipped in ink. She calls her Quillestrial, or Quill for short. Quill's trait was fey-touched - +1 against mind-affecting compulsion effects. (#77 on traits table)

-The dwarf paladin of Torag has a barrel-chested bay stallion with hooves the size of a man's head, called Lim. Lim's trait is danger sense - a +4 bonus on Perception checks to avoid being surprised. (#17 on traits table)

-The dhampir sorcerer has a black gelding with white stripe, lips, and pastern markings, who foams at the mouth when running. (#80 on appearance table) After rolling his trait - finicky (#14 on traits table) - he decided he had to name him Griggory, after an old paladin PC of his who, when in a town subsisting on sour beer and root vegetables in the middle of an undead nightmare, would ask for rose-water and a fruit platter.

-The elf spell-less ranger has a palomino mare with a red blaze and coronet markings, and a long mane and tail. Her name is Eomaer, and she's protective, standing over the ranger if he falls in battle. (#50 on apperarance table, #35 on traits table)

-The half-elf cleric of Desna has an ash-grey colt with a white star that appears to be from someone rubbing the ash away (#55 on appearance table) Being a cleric of Desna, goddess of stars, this player was ecstatic and asked me to roll a trait... which came up as snake eyes. Narcoleptic. The table erupted into laughter, and I decided to throw the player a bone. "Alright," I said, "I'll roll again, and you can choose which trait you want to keep." So I rolled... and I got #25. Blind. Needless to say, he stayed with narcoleptic. He's also decided that his horse's name is Susan, and we are to respect his life choices.

-The pack horse is called Venture, an oversized chestnut mare who will only travel with other horses. (#35 on appearance table, #86 on traits table)

Even though I wasn't planning on having my player strictly enforce Susan's narcolepsy, he's doing it anyway. The look on his face whenever a 'stressful situation' comes up is priceless.

Thanks so much for making this! My players love their horses' descriptions, and 'Lazy Susan' is a hit!

Thanks for sharing this, El Ronza! It seems like you and your players got some apt traits for the mounts. Lazy Susan is a great horse, and his owner shouldn't let others tell him otherwise.

It's really awesome to see this in play at other games. I appreciate it, and I'm glad you got such great use out of it.

The Player LOVES Lazy Susan. He's always been drawn to the runts and oddballs, so a narcoleptic horse is right up his alley. He plays it up brilliantly - while the table likes to rib on him for it, he's really happy with his oddball horse. (He wants to make a saddle of feather fall and a bridle of levitate so he can walk around carrying Susan like a balloon when he falls asleep.)

Since this brought so much joy to my table, I'll have to write up a review once I can find the time. This was well worth the $2.50 sale price. :)
