Llama Price?


Rules Questions


I can't seem to find a price for a Llama on the srd. Is it not possible to purchase a Llama or obtain one without being a druid or ranger or hunter or wild child (etc)?


It's a domesticated animal usually used for its wool, so I'd go with the price of a sheep for equivalency.


More a light pack animal in real life. Too small for a person to ride so I'd charge a bit less than a donkey. Also a donkey can carry more, so maybe 7gp.


Too small for a gnome to ride?

As a native of peru(aka llamaland), yes they are not that big that humans can ride them. A gnome could i guess but they are never ridden, they havent been trained for that. The same way you could "theretically" ride a sheep as a halfling

Pg 28 of the Animal Archive depicts a halfing riding a llama. Presumably a bard, since he's playing a flute. Got a pretty elaborate saddle and saddlebags and everything.

So presumably it ought to be more than theoretical, yes? Even though on that same page it lists the llama's strength as 12...

I appreciate the input. I guess I'm expressing frustration at the fact that they don't list a price for an animal that they show a PC (and an iconic, upon closer inspection) riding in one of the splat books.


You know, I think you guys are all WAAAY under-pricing her...
Charm Monster and Deep Slumber as spell-like abilities, Wisdom drain on a touch attack...

Oooooh! LLAMA! Never mind...

See, but that picture is there because that page lists the stats for a Llama Animal Companion, so it's not a random tease...

But the picture is of the iconic bard riding said llama. But if I roll up a small character who wants to ride a llama, it's a world of grief.

"What's the carrying capacity of that llama? Oops, your character plus a saddle gives him a check penalty."

"A llama's an 'inappropriate mount'. Minus five to your ride check, please. Oops, you fell off your llama."

Also, the stats for the llama as an AC don't include the spit attack, which seems pretty unfair considering the llama is an extremely underpowered animal companion.
