[5E] Mystaran Horse Breeds

Postby Hugin » Thu Nov 30, 2017 5:33 am

I thought I'd create a separate thread here in the Mystara forum to point out that I have begun to post my 5E versions of the Mystaran Horses I created back in 3.5E.

The 5E thread can be found here and begins with some rules for horses in 5E. While I figured the 5E rules type discussions can happen there, I wanted a separate place to be able discuss the Mystaran horses from a setting and flavour view if that happened.

I have only posted my first test-horse post so far, that being the Ethengar's Akhal-Teke. Only a little over 20 more to go!

Nice to see a return to this topic.

Have you considered adding new breeds to the list? How about magical or semi-magical breeds?

Are any canonical horse breeds not included?

Do the Chevalls of Karameikos care for herds with special properties?

Elven Horses?

Unicorns?

Nightmares?

Celestial/Infernal Horses (translated to Mystara these could be connected to Spheres...?)

Thanks for the interest, Havard! I have considered it but it definitely won't be until after I've completed the existing ones. The Elves of Alfheim have a semi-magical breed, which I have included already. Magical breeds seem to fall under the "monster entry" category to me, but who knows.

Are any canonical horse breeds not included?

Not that I'm aware of. If anybody finds one please let me know! However, just about all of them are simply made up by me.

Do the Chevalls of Karameikos care for herds with special properties?

Canonically, they (along with unicorns) have helped the horses of the elves of Alfeim survive after the transformation of their steppes into a forest, creating as I mentioned above, their special breed of elven horse. Chevalls generally watch out for and care for normal horses. The creation of the special elven horse had to do with saving them from possible extinction, as opposed to just trying make a special breed of horse.

Elven Horses?

Yep. These are the Rochuin Giltirn and are in line to get updated.

Unicorns?

Nightmares?

Since they are already in the Monster Manual I doubt I'll do anything else with them.

Celestial/Infernal Horses (translated to Mystara these could be connected to Spheres...?)

While possible, my main interest is in the mundane horses of everyday use (and hopefully making them just a little less mundane).

Great, Hugin!

I'll look forward to this.

I've made some use of your 3.5 version in the past. (I actually mostly just used it for inspiration for classic D&D rules versions, but it worked fine, with me being able to pick and choose some abilities highlighting the distinctions of these breeds in the setting, as your document outlined.)
