Share Day #11

Let’s talk mounts today. Fantasy steeds, be it horses, dragons, or even wolves. What would your dream ride be? Give us the who, what, when, where, and why.

  1. I was involved in an rp where I played a beast master who briefly rode a dire lion. A tall, blonde amazon riding a giant lion certainly turned a few heads.

  2. For those mature and / or geeky enough to remember, it has to be the equort! Equorts are basically mutant horses. Thundarr the Barbarian’s sidekick Ookla the Mok rode one.

    Nothing terribly special about the equort. It was slower than the horses. Most of the time it simply would run through obstacles instead of attempt to jump them.

    I always loved the idea of summoner, so I could summon different mounts for different things. For example: a unicorn for speed and long travels, a sabertooth tiger for agility in battles, a phoenix for flight, a sea serpent for water, etc.. This is what I would like to ride :D.

  4. If it’s wrong to want to use a pterodactyl as a steed, I don’t particularly want to be right.

  5. I have always loved the Griffin, however it is supposed to be spelled nowadays, The fierceness, cool look, flight, speed, power. I mean whats not to love?

  6. …A manticore whould be cool too. kinda on the same idea. Body of a lion, tail of a scorpion, wings of a dragon, and the face of a demon. I still like Griffins though.

  7. An Old Wyrm Gold Dragon! ‘Nuff said!

  8. Horses. Always. Horses. Horses. Not with wings, they’d be in the way. No one ever thinks of how you’d actually ride ‘em. draft horses are often too wide to ride, and you people think you can straddle a dragon?

    The best part is I already ride horses.

    I absolutely do pretend I’m doing something badass when I ride. Sometimes I DO do something badass.

    My horse kicked another horse in the chest to stop her from running into me. She’d be a pretty good battle partner I figure.

  9. And nothing predatory, cos they’d require meat at regular intervals, and I’m not feeding that.

    And things that eat meat have the WORST poop. the WORST

  10. I don’t know whether this would count, exactly, but I would like most of all a race I’ve never seen depicted. They would seem like fake leather to a casual glance, but be partly porous. On command, a pair of twins of this race would wrap toe to knee, impersonating a boot, and propel me as if I was walking. They have super-strength and perfect agility, so I would appear to have it myself. I wouldn’t even tire or sweat because of them. Perfect also for anyone with fallen arches or trick knees. They eat microbes off the surfaces they walk on, so anywhere but the Arctic would be fine.

    Let’s call them Bundleboots.

  11. A dolphin. Of course, that would raise a few complications, but I’ve always wanted to see a story written about someone who lived in some islands with a pet dolphin. just think, it could hold your head above water while you sleep, carry you far beyond tech’s reach through kelp and coral, and it would laugh at all your jokes. :)

    I always liked the idea of orcish boar riders. As to which party, rider or mount, is actually in charge makes for part of the appeal.

  13. Robot T-Rex. Because I want to ride up and hit them with my sword, that’s why.

  14. *Expanded
    Robot T-rex, with flamethrower in its mouth, Miniguns attached to its thighs, an axe on the end of its tail, rocket feet for flight and teeth for biting. I would ride it to school, to pick up a date, wherever fun times are had they become even more fun when you rock up on a robot T-Rex.
    Why? Because I could ride a wolf, OR I COULD RIDE A ROBOT T-REX!

    You could always try to co-opt one of Lobo’s Space Dolphins… ;)
