    Mounted Combat.

    A lot of the energy being transferred is related to speed not mass of horse Having done jousting in an English saddle, admittedly with stirrups, I'd argue you don't need a high pommel and cantle to stay on the horse Stirrup makes it easier to get on and off the horse. They're not essential for riding or staying on 2h weapons on horse is are difficult to use. Get into problems with interference of weapon and horse Trousers were associated with horse riders But you don't grip when riding. Use core muscles, balance and flow with horse

    Playing a trickster

    Wouldn't a trickster bounce between the extremes. Dangerous sociopath, fun character and character that disrupts game all in one

    Esrolian Assassin

    Not sure what it says about me but I could easily play one and wouldn't expect them to last very long

    Esrolian Assassin

    I considered Eurmal but outlaw and most players not grasping the oddness made me reconsider

    Esrolian Assassin

    The Initiate of Chalana Arroy was too far away to save the Humakt and had awful dice luck

    Esrolian Assassin

    More of the latter. He was a bit unlucky but the group played it too much like a DnD encounter. I'm hoping they've learnt. I'm running the Adventure Book Scenario's.

    Esrolian Assassin

    I'm aware of the difficulty in managing their expectations They've experienced one combat which ended badly for their Humakt Warrior

    Esrolian Assassin

    They don't know enough of the world to know. They're coming from other RPGs so they want a sneaky, backstabbing thief Think Esrolian Orlanthi follower with thief background Exiled or escaped to Sartar

    Prax Ostrich Combat Jockets = Terrible IRL

    I suspect the original poster has never ridden an animal The ability to stay on is related to come strength not being able to bench press. Being small can help, your centre of gravity is nearer the centre of gravity of the mount

    Prax Ostrich Combat Jockets = Terrible IRL

    The expression better sight due to large eyes is incorrect. First you need to define better e.g. Prey animals have very good long distance vision but can't focus under their nose Flies are very good at detecting movement Raptors have great visual acuity, some have two fovea
