#RPGaDAY 29: Ride

Day 29 of #RPGaDAY 2020. Today’s prompt is ‘Ride’.

In fantasy RPGs, horses and other draft animals are the main mode of long-distance transportation. But I’m not a fan of outfitting the characters with horses or a cart: what are you going to do with that once you arrive at a dungeon and enter? Will their horses still be there when they get back, three days later? The logistics are just too complex, and using horses for long-distance travel is not faster than walking anyway.
In one campaign of the Amber Diceless RPG, the royal stablemaster of Amber started to demand a deposit for every horse loaned out, because the princes and princesses had an inclination of jumping through a trump contact or shadowwalking somewhere, leaving his fine horses stranded in Shadow!
