EZG reviews Cavalier Mounts
This pdf is 4 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content, so let’s take a look!
This pdf is Dale McCoy Jr.’s answer versus the problem of boring cavalier mounts for e.g. dwarves and other races – ignoring the horse/camel limitation in favor for some more exotic, weird mounts – a total of 11 different base statistics, all of which advance at 4th level (with one exception, the wolfhound advances at 7th level) and the creatures are interesting indeed:
We get a riding ant, elks, riding beetles, cave salamanders, giant gila monsters, the obligatory riding eagle, riding hawks, spiders and OSTRICHS and TUMBLING PIGS! Hell yeah!
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any glitches. Layout adheres to a no-frills standard and the pdf actually, in spite of its short length, comes fully bookmarked – commendable! Better yet, the pdf comes with working d20pfsrd.com hyperlinks – the good type, where only rules-relevant pieces are hyperlinked.
What can I say – for a very fair asking price, this pdf offers some cool mounts and while I’m not sold on why we needed a hawk and an eagle, overall, this pdf offers some VERY cool mounts to use and add some very distinct cultural flair to your campaign and set cavaliers (and other mounted characters) more apart. I still would have wished for a second mount that is not yet another bird, but that’s about the only thing I have to complain about – hence my final verdict will clock in at 5 stars.
