Anyone have a feel for the total hippogriffs the Sable company has? I'm feeling around 75
Guide to Korvosa says this about hippogriffs: "dozens of which perch within the high aerie of the Great Tower and serve as the mounts for the city’s elite Sable Company." - page 3
Roughly 200 Sable Company marines (about two-thirds of the entire company) - page 16
So there's around 300 sable company, but only a "dozens of mounts" (assume 36) at the main headquarters, It seems that from some of the text that there would be a high number (2 dozen?) also on watch, a group at Veldraine (another dozen), finally, a few for training purposes at Endrin Military Academy.
So at full power, that would mean a mount for about 1/4th of their forces.
Anyone have any thoughts on anything I missed?
