still it would be nice if player could reach certain locations only by riding mouboo... :)

Yes a Mouboo would do just fine.. I just asked one. And it would prevent even more work to have to be done.

You ride on it's back? What does the neck have to do with anything?

How about a varation of a Transmutation spell #T41 {}

Transform into shape of {} for the duration of the spell

Gain movement speed of that creature.

No new graphics required.

No wild animal want to be ridden (not even horses). But any animal that's able to stand the weight of a human is suitable for riding if it can be trained, from camels to elephants. Moubos don't look like aggressive animals and they seem to be big and strong enough, it seems to me that they can be easily trainable.

I don't think that the neck is a problem.
Real giraffes have a much longer neck and that didn't stopped them from being once "the main means of transportation in many places in the world".

That would be a nice alternative, but then only spellcasters would be able to do so.
There's people who prefer the good old steel and who don't like magic. And I think that those knight-like people are the ones who would want the riding (for mages a nifty astral warp spell would be probably preferred for transport, although your idea could be a cool nature spell).

HI folks,

What about a ride skill that permit:
1 to tame the mouboo you will ride
2 to ride the mouboo

The more proficient you're in the skill the more things you can do while riding

Proposed things (please order as you see feet) that can be done while riding:
* cast a 0 level magic spell
* cast a 1 level magic spell (and so on)
* fight melee (could be nice to have some long lance weapon usable on riding only) (fighting with a short weapon is not that easy)
* fight ranged (ranged while riding is not that easy)
* rest

The speed of the ride should be computed from the proficiency in that skill

It would be nice to have some tournament of riding players

Some spell could be created to heal the mount.

And obviously it should not be permitted to enter a building while mounted, nor caves.

There could be some coral where mount will be stored near places of interest (mines, in towns)


Hope these ideas will be useful

I'm just curious, but should't we try to get it trough?
Btw - indeed, I am Phaton with a new account, I am back after a short break and ready to share ideas.

Yours, Phaeton
