In a fantasy game where you can play a dwarf, why is the cavalier limited to riding a horse? Ride a beast into battle, delve the depths under the mountain and take to the skies on a mount that earns its place in fantasy. Whether you go bareback on an elk or have a specialized saddle made for your riding spider, none will forget your mount. Tell an epic tale of your knightly deeds and the mount that braved the dangers the whole way.

An Endzeitgeist.com review

*****

This pdf is 4 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content, so let’s take a look!

This pdf is Dale McCoy Jr.’s answer versus the problem of boring cavalier mounts for e.g. dwarves and other races – ignoring the horse/camel limitation in favor for some more exotic, weird mounts – a total of 11 different base statistics, all of which advance at 4th level (with one exception, the wolfhound advances at 7th level) and the creatures are interesting indeed:

We get a riding ant, elks, riding beetles, cave salamanders, giant gila monsters, the obligatory riding eagle, riding hawks, spiders and OSTRICHS and TUMBLING PIGS! Hell yeah!

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any glitches. Layout adheres to a no-frills standard and the pdf actually, in spite of its short length, comes fully bookmarked – commendable! Better yet, the pdf comes with working d20pfsrd.com hyperlinks – the good type, where only rules-relevant pieces are hyperlinked.

What can I say – for a very fair asking price, this pdf offers some cool mounts and while I’m not sold on why we needed a hawk and an eagle, overall, this pdf offers some VERY cool mounts to use and add some very distinct cultural flair to your campaign and set cavaliers (and other mounted characters) more apart. I still would have wished for a second mount that is not yet another bird, but that’s about the only thing I have to complain about – hence my final verdict will clock in at 5 stars.

Endzeitgeist out.


Fine Collection of Magnificent Mounts

****( )

Cavalier Mounts is a four-page PDF collection that promises to deliver, well, some new and unusual mounts for the cavalier class. And it does.

The PDF itself has a cover page, credits, and then two pages with the actual mounts along with some explanatory information. After that it's straight to the mounts with some basic stat blocks. They all get a 4th level advancement like the more mundane horse and pony, save only for the size Large wolfhound, which gets it at 7th. It seems odd only in that a cavalier's mount thus has to wait until 7th level for the combat trained quality.

The mounts themselves are quite an odd and intriguing collection. You get several vermin mounts (giant ants, beetles, and spiders), a pair of fliers in the riding eagle and hawk, and then six more mundane steeds, for a certain definition of mundane -- the cave salamander, elk, Gila monster, ostrich, tumble pig, and wolfhound. It's all very basic. I would have appreciated just a little on where you might find these mounts and who would use them, but any player or DM with some experience can probably figure out a place for them pretty quick.

One minor question I have is for the vermin mounts. They get an Int of 2 at 4th level. I assume that means they're no longer immune to mind-affecting effects, and that they gain skills from that point on, but it's not specified.

In the end you are promised several very different mounts for your game for a very fair price, and that is exactly what you get. If you like the more unusual sort of cavaliers or campaigns, you'll almost certainly be able to get some use out of this PDF. Four stars!
