Too bad the horse didn't come with the outfit.

If you are not familiar with Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark (you should do something about that): Deekin is one of your companions (a kobold bard, of all things) and at one point you get the following comment... "And Deekin followed the running hero once more. Run run run, run run run. Never walking, always running. One day we ride, maybe?"

Alas that day has not reached us yet, but we are obviously preparing for it. Of course, those spurs would gut a horse, so it's probably for the best that we didn't get a mount this time...

Assassin's Creed gives you a range of horses though, which even looked good and moved nicely. And fought with you. Not that I'm, you know, trying to imply that a fantasy setting could use some horses or anything...

I wish there was horses in Dragon Age.. That'd be badass. Instead of running, you can use the horse to stomp over people. But sadly, there's no such thing as horses in the DA world.

You can use dragons though! "Let's all ride on Flemeth, guys!" "OKAY!"

No horses in DA...they were driven out along with the Orlesians...

And elves can't ride Halla...it would disrupt their frolicking...

But the cows! Ferelden has the most beautiful cows/oxen I've ever seen!

Old Tegrin, if you're going to interrupt my travels with your low level wares-- SELL ME THE (expletive) COW!

NWN 1.69 paladins get to summon a celestial horse, and ride it.

Looking through the archives again trying to deal with pre-inquisition withdrawl and found this: guess what inquisition has (of course all indications are you still can't fight on them).

@Norgrath: I know! Super excited nonetheless, after all these years! XD

With nwn:ee on the way we will see more Deekin which is good, and also more drow which is also good. Maybe in this time if more content is made Deekin will have his wish granted and we can get him a pony.
