Pegasus Mount for Damsels

AudacimousAudacimous Registered Users Posts: 39
It always bother me how imperial battle wizards have pegasi mounts but grail damsels don't. Was there ever an explanation for this? Pretty sure pegasi are much more abundant in Bretonnia than in the Empire and I know for a fact a specific Damsel rode a pegasus once in a WHF novel so yeah, why the omission CA?

On a side note, replace Teclis' bird with a pegasus since at least he rode one once in lore (even though he carelessly got it killed by darkshards). Phoenixes are only reserved for Phoenix Guard captains and Anointed of Asuryan -- not lore friendly at all for a Loremaster.

    Yeah agreed.

    And also demand brets get light, shadow, and metal lores

    Also if they are not goung to southern realms they could move lore of albion to brets. Since brets were based on autharian legends.

    If CA being extra nice they could use the damnd paladin and damned knights errarnt to make sons of bretonnia pladins and cavalry.

    As former being a hybrid caster and latter being cav with bound spells.

    Plus there is a sons of bretonnia special charcter mentioned in novels.

    Hippo mount for Paladins would be a lot mor eimpactful for them. Damsels are fine.

    His only saving grace is able to ride hippo though

    He is locked to a subfaction which not only limits you more. But also means that just like with angrunds ancestor heroes you're announcing to the world what you're gonna do.

    a hippo with reduced AL bonus or even with no AL bonus, so Henri having 20 Bvsl on Hippo is huge.

    Move henri to main faction

    Create new paladin without AL and guardian. Give hippo and acticated ability armor sundering

    I don't mind hippo mounts for Paladins. Yes it a SEM but at least you can only bring 2 if you still want a caster. Pegasus for damsels on the other hand is kinda a no brainer that's been overlooked for so long.

    Its funny that I want peg for damsels
    but unicorn for prophetess......

    Give pal a Hip but remove his AL

    Keep Henri with his AL

    Henri has a niche, hip paladins aren't totally oppressive aerial goon squads with huge APAL just AP.

    The best compromise I can think of that keeps Henri unique and aids paladins without making them too oppressive.

    I still think 2x hip paladins and Fey will be unpleasant.

    I'd probably remove guardian as well from them when on a Hip

    maybe someone could make a separate thread abput Paladins

    As long as there is a hippo cap of 2 it would be fine.
    There are plenty of other more toxic builds

    Damsels didn't have access to the Pegasus, but considering all of the characters that have mounts that they shouldn't have it's only fair if they do.

    Even better solution, remove those gratuitous mounts.

    I would just like to point out the unicorn is a majestic creature worth more than some old crumby pegasi, so this discussion is really quite irrelevant. #TeamUnicorn #MajesticCreatures #FemalePower

    Pegasus for Damsels and a Hippogryph for the Prophetess would open up a lot of options for Bretonnia. Given all the flying options that Elves, Chaos and Counts enjoy, it's clear that it would not be game-breaking.

    I'm not a fan of giving a monsterous mount for casters. Pegasus sure but hippogryph I think would be too much.

    I doubt monstrous mounts will be taken away from the many other casters that have them, so I believe Bretonnia could do with a chance to level the playing field. The Prophetess is one of the few casters that would be "safe" to give some teeth to. She is currently never used and even with a great mount, she would struggle to compete with the Fay's utility or Loeun's strength. If she was viable, we'd see more lores of magic in Bretonnian builds and it would further enable Bretonnia to build very wide, which is one of their few strengths.
