Title: Horse Jumping Wild Riders
Foxtale - October 29, 2006 08:20 AM (GMT)
A little house rule my friend and I play with our mounted characters. If your character is mounted on a mini-monster, like a Wild Rider on a Stag, and the mount gets killed; the character can jump on the horse of one of the drone Wild Riders, and the drone becomes a 20x20 model with Wild Rider stats. This takes up half the unit's movement to complete and can't be done if they're locked in combat.
It makes it a bit more realistic, as the horses in our army aren't particularly attached to their riders, and the hero isn't going to footslog whilst his unit keeps going.
I ask: Is a Wild Rider still a Wild Rider when his Stag dies? Or does he become a Wild Walker?

Made me laugh!
Anyway, I think that's a fine rule. Perhaps a quater of the movement instead - these are really athletic elves here, not some humans! The movement requirement in general is good, as it stops people doing it in combat (where the noble/highborn would have a whole host of other things on his mind).

A cool rule but one problem....
Would you have to sacrifice a wild rider? as i can not see them logging around spare horses for the 'just in case' purpose.
So will the noble turn round and go,
"Oi you off ye horse i need it git!"
Not the kind of leader i would like to follow...
Maybe a leadership test is reguired for the WR to give up his horse. If failed he says no and they leave the noble behind, if succed the WR gets left behind? (lol)

Wtf? Haha, no I see what you're getting at, but it's more like this...
"Aww crap! My beloved steed is dead! I must have revenge!"
"Here, my leader, take my mount so you may have your revenge."
Then he acts as if he were using the WR's elven steed. Basically, I just proxy a WR model. Meanwhile, when a character mount dies, they fall off and become a single figure. So the same thing happens to the lone WR, who is at <25% and therefore takes a leadership test or flees.

That makes sense i was meaning what happens to the lone WR and thanks for explaining it.
I think the house rule is good may use it myself. As it makes sense.
mmmm i got my own miscast table do you want it (obviously different thread) the funny one.

It makes sense this could happen, but the game mechanics are maybe a little complicated.
My main complaint though would be the usual method of neutering archaon wouldn't work anymore (kill his daemonic mount then stay away!)

Go for it SDETT. It's what this forum is for, right?
And another question- who will be the mod of this forum?

Ok just let me find where i put it...

To be honest i don't think it needs a mod as it is quite a small forum at this moment in time. Maybe if it really kicks up pace and rockets into being very active.
But if the admins need one... ahem... :biggrin: nah only joking...

i think you should only be able to switch mount if a wild rider dies first. coz then a mount will be free :)

An interesting concept Foxtale. I don't use great stags that much but your rule would be fun to use if I got the opportunity in a game. Might mention it to some of my friends who play too, just to see what they think...
