What does a horse cost?

21 posts in this topic

It''s in my house rulebook (along with the price of everything else) - in my Sig.  It''s also in LF8.

players book in omens of war, i cant for the life of me think of what its called right now though.

I got unsure now, but isn''t the player book from the Omens of War box called "Omens of War"► Maybe I''m wrong though, haven''t got my books here and I don''t remember the prices. Still that''s the book which contains all the (official) information on horses, including their prices.

Omens of war is good for a couple things:

1.  A heavy combat scenario in Nordland

2.  Some more action cards

3. ….

3. Permanent injuries are quite cool. ;)

We actually had a player quit over a permanent injury.  Granted the guy was a complete flake anyways, but hey, what's so bad about a limb-chewed-off-by-ghouls-at-the-hip ;)

Well, our group "loves" the severe injuries, one of my player lost his sword arm, another got an impressive scar. It adds extra tension to drawing critical wounds.

Also, I house ruled (at least I think it's a house rule) that severe injuries happen instantly to monsters/enemies, except to "master" monsters or nemisies or similar. My players love it when they draw severe injuries and get to apply the permanent effect instantly (more than one of my enemies have died from a well placed head shot).

I know such players, got 2 of em in my current group. i'm just waiting for them to quit because its not going the way they want it

 

we love severe injuries too. anytime someone get a critical wound i shuffle 1 severe in there, so he has a chance of not picking it, but mostly they do, hilarious

holy hooley dooley. in 24 years of gaming i've never encountered that kind of childish behaviour - even when we had an 8 year old child playing with us.

The GM probably needs to look at the rule that states you have to control your horse going into battle on the first round.  Sure, that's fine when you're going up against a giant, or a massive daemon or something that a novice horse might be afraid of, but I wouldn't make my players bother if they were just riding into combat against goblins or something like that.

Yeah, the rules as written are ridiculous. Horses are a horrible liability in battle.

 

At the start of every battle you have to roll Agility + Ride vs 2 Purple.

If you fail, you lose your turn, and have to roll again next turn.

If you fail and get a chaos star, you fall off your horse. 

 

So even a PC that's built specifically to be a good rider, with Agility of 5, and Ride trained and specialized, has a 20% chance of losing their first turn every fight. (Not to mention a 5% chance of falling off your horse and a 4% chance of losing 2 or more consecutive turns.)

Prices in my house rulebook in my sig (horse cost from Omens of War, coach cost extrapolated from 2nd edition conversion).
