Tie speed of horses to body control.

Recommended Posts

Make horses able to be ridden by default. Riding bareback without a saddle should slow you down, but can be mitigated by having higher BC. Tie the maximum speed to body control checks and having a saddle. I think that wurm is a bit tough for new players. Perhaps that is part of its appeal, but being able to ride a horse should be able to be done from the start. Here is my suggestion by percent of baseline. 

 

20 BC 50% speed bareback 60% with saddle

21 BC 60% speed bareback 100% with saddle

23 BC 80% speed bareback

25 BC 100% speed bareback

 

Should be fairly easy to implement, less wogic-y, and beneficial to new player retention.

saddles add speed due to ql and woa casts. 

 

Adding this would mean you lose the benefit of the speed bonuses from saddles, or that you now need 25 body control to get the full effect?

Riding with a saddle would still add speed beyond baseline, as would horse speed traits. I'm suggesting that if you are trying to ride without a saddle, there are penalties until you hit 25 BC.  My suggestion also encompassed allowing new characters to ride right off the bat, but at slower speeds than 21 BC with a saddle, and half speed without.

Everyone should have to ride a cow, so they appreciate horses :P
