View Full Version : Mounted PRC's?

What were the mounted PRC's? I needed one for a drow riding a spider (no a big one) could only think of that gnome one and I just thought hey why not get a list of them from the more helpfully among you.

There's a couple, but for some reason the only one I can remember is Ashworm Cavalier from Sandstorm, which is all about riding a big nasty critter with a poisonous attack.

There's some stuff about sanddiving, but I'm sure you can adapt it to your needs.

Cavalier (CWar), Wild Plains Outrider (Cadv), Ranger Knight (Dragon 317) and the aforementioned Ashworm Cavalier from Sandstorm are the only ones I can think of immediately.

I don't know of any PrCs that haven't already been mentioned, but there is the Knight of Lolth feat in Drow of the Underdark pg52. It basically makes it way easier to ride a spider (no ride checks to stay on when it's on walls and ceilings and such, more damage on charges).

Need the Vermin Trainer feat to get in, which makes you able to use Handle Animal on vermin as if they were animals.

To go with that, another that has Vermin Trainer prereq is Spider Companion, which allows you to add large and huge monstrous spider to your list of available companions, as they are not normally there.

The Sandstorm PrC is actually the Ashworm Dragoon, not the Ashworm Cavalier. My favorite Prestige Class! It might not work very well for a drow riding a spider though, as the class features are very Ashworm specific.

EDIT: Actually, it's really not that hard to see it being adapted. Heighten Sting still works pretty well, and the sand-riding stuff could be replaced with wall-riding stuff I guess. You'd probably have to change the abilities related to trampling though, if only because spiders aren't very good at that. Although Bury in the Sand could be refluffed as webbing...
Anyway, I guess my point is that it might work if you're willing to homebrew a little.

Aglarondan Griffonrider (sp) from Unapproachable East, Halfling Outrider from ???, Silverwood Outrider from Web (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/re/20031202a), Silverwood Arcanist from Web (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/re/20031209a), and Waverider from Savage Species are all that I can remember offhand that haven't been mentioned yet.

Oh, and PRC Paladin. (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/variant/classes/prestigiousCharacterClasses.htm#prestigePaladin)
