Mounted Combat

(E) Saddle Savvy

Saddle Savvy

  • Attribute:  Constitution
  • Type:  Move
  • Time:  N/A
  • Description:  Characters with this skill are able to get into and out of the saddle with ease. With a successful skill check, the rider can mount or dismount as a single move action, rather than the two actions it typically takes, provided the animal is saddled. If the skill check fails, the action requires the standard two actions. In addition, the character may use this skill to save against being unseated, whether from an attack or as the result of the mount rearing or bolting unexpectedly, gaining a +1 modifier per two skill points in Mounted Combat. If the save is successful, they may remain in the saddle or dismount without taking damage; if it fails the character is unseated.
  • Prerequisites:  Four skill points in Mounted Combat
