Replacing mounts


Rules Questions

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2013 Top 16

If I have gain a mount from the Cavalier class, it specifies that I can get a new one after a mourning period if the first one dies. But can I simply choose to release it, as a druid's animal companion? I have access to the Axe Beak boon for PFS, but because of size, I can't use it until level 7. Can I just switch out mounts at the new level?

Also, if I get a new mount, does it have all the same feats and skills as the first? Specifically, I'm interested in Weapon Focus for one of its natural attacks, which will change when I become a Mammoth Rider. Can I retrain that to use different feats when I get a different animal?

Except as otherwise specified, you treat your mount as a druid's animal companion. You can release a mount from service and spend 24 hours to get a new one as a druid can.

It's a different animal. You choose all skills, feats and tricks for it just as you do when gaining your original mount at 1st level.
